Cynthia Occelli's 15 Reasons Why
You Don’t Have the Success, Relationships, Lifestyle, or Fitness You Want

1) You don’t know what you want.  Discover what you want.

2) You aren’t committed. See the power of commitment.

3) You aren’t taking consistent action.  Check out Tip #10.

4) You say “Yes” too much. Learn the power of No.

5) You’re on automatic pilot—doing the same things and expecting a different outcome. Stop waiting for life to change.

6) You're caring about what others think. Become independent of others' opinions.

7) You believe in scarcity. The scarcity trance.

8) You don’t stay on your own mat—comparing yourself to others, or not minding your own business. Stay on your own mat.

9) You quit. Delays are not denials.

10) You don’t believe in yourself. Learn to believe in yourself.

11) You sell yourself short. I used to do it, too

12) You’re not asking the right questions. Unlock your truth.

13) You’re looking for someone else to figure it out, do it for you, rescue you, discover you, or for something to happen that quickly, effortlessly, and easily, changes your life. If you want life to change, change your story.

14) You think you’ve got time. This is the scariest thing in the world.

15) You don’t know your power. Surrender victimhood and take your power back.

The U.S. economy over the last two months painted a grim picture for the average worker, showing only modest wage growth, but the data showed improving pay for skilled workers in areas like health care and information technology. Economists are keeping a particularly close eye on wage growth as it has not kept up with gains in other metrics measuring the overall economy.
Wage gains are important as they provide the extra cash to workers to fuel the roughly 70 percent of the nation's economy driven by consumer spending.
Overall the economy continued growing modestly this summer as employment, wages and prices slightly increased on the strength of stronger car and home sales and tourism, the Fed said Wednesday.
