This is why you don’t succeed

​When I find great content, I like to share it with you. I am a massive ​Simon Sinek fan as I believe he is incredibly wise a​cross a broad range of topics including leadership and emotional intelligence.

I have recently been watching this great talk about why people are struggling to succeed, both socially and professionally, in the modern environment. It's such an insightful, and humorous, talk that I felt I should share it with you.

​Key Takeaways

​The following are some of my key takeways from  this talk:

  • ​​There are many cases where parents feel they are helping their children but they are in fact causing problems for them, further down the line..
  • ​While technology has brought many great elements to our life; it can be disruptive, harmful and extremely addictive; which can cause relationship problems.
  • ​We ​no longer have any idea how to build great relationships.
  • ​Instant gratification has seen a growth in impatience. Many people are now failing to succeed because they are too impatient to wait for success.
  • ​Most modern companies care more about profits than their employees which can then cause long-term problems for both the employee and the company.
