There's a really good collection of advice to be found here. Compiled by Lee Morris at Fstoppers, the post highlights several things that may slow down your pathway to success. Here's an excerpt from the post:

 
3. DON’T TAKE RISKS

“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”
-Frank Scully

By now you are probably noticing how each of these topics builds on the other. If you don’t have any extra money then you will be forced to work, if you are forced to work every day you won’t have time to focus on your true passion, and if you don’t have any time or money you won’t be able to take risks that will eventually lead to wealth.
 

Again, these are the things that you don't want to be doing. Common sense to some, but a good read nonetheless.
