Reasons Why You Think You're a Loser

Updated on September 11, 2016

1. Failed Relationships

Losing someone you love can be heartbreaking, but that doesn't make you a loser. It just means the person you thought was the one, really wasn't. You shouldn't hold onto someone who doesn't love you as much as you love them.

Even though it may be hard to adjust to a life without having that person in it, you will soon realize how wrong you were for each other. You may even find you love yourself a little more once you're single again. Life is way too short to waste it away unhappily, with someone not suited for you.

2. You Flunked Out of School

Look how many of the greats were horrible in school. Everyone has their own "Niche" something they are good at, and just because you failed in certain subjects at school, doesn't mean you have failed at life.

Find a new trade, or hobby, something that you enjoy doing and go for it. You can only succeed if you try, and failing doesn't make you a loser, it just means you need to choose a new path.

3. Your Life Didn't Go as Planned

Then make a new plan, your old plan wasn't meant to be, or it would have happened. Sometimes we tend to base our life plans on our surroundings and what makes others happy. You have to find a plan that is just right for you and always remember you are the writer of your life, so you can always change the script.


I Am Not A Doctor!!!

I am not a doctor, my advice is based upon my own life experiences and watching others around me, so please don't take my advice as medical advice.

4. Others Doubt Your Capabilities

Other people are not you, so their views about what you're capable of, really shouldn't matter. You are the one who makes the rules and regulations for your life. Just because someone tells you they don't think you can achieve something, doesn't mean you can't.

Do what makes you happy, and don't let others stand in your way. Besides most people who tell you that you can't, are the ones who wish they did.

5. You Don't Finish Things

Make a promise to yourself that you will start making an effort today, to start finishing the things you start. You may not be able to go back and finish unfinished things from your past, but you can finish new and present tasks.

Most people have things they have never finished, so stop beating yourself up. This doesn't make you a loser, it makes you human.


6. You Are Indecisive

You have a million ideas about how to become successful but can't figure out which one to go for. The answer to this is simple, go in the direction your heart leads you. Pick whatever hobby or job brings you the most joy.

How confident are you?

See results

You Rock!!!

None of the reasons listed above makes you a loser as a matter of fact, your absolutely incredible. Start looking at all these reasons you have been using to make you feel like a failure in a new light, and begin to use them as stepping blocks towards your own personal success story.

      Just what I needed to hear. We can be quite harsh on ourselves but we need to remember that the fact that you recognize your short comings attests that you are not a failure. You stand a good chance of redirecting your life.
