Why Do Some People Succeed And Some People Fail ?

Last Update: March 22, 2015

What make a person successful at what they do ?

This is a question that i have spent a lot of time trying to work out, i have studied lots of successful people who have made there millions from the ideas that they have created and one thing they all seem to have in common is that they have never given up with what they are trying to achieve.

Men do not fail; they give up trying.

Elihu Root

Failure is not an option, if you sign up to be a member at wealthy affiliate and you start the training but then life gets in the way and you forget about it, then you are never going to achieve the goals that you have set for yourself.

One of the main reasons that people fail or give up is that they are not very good at managing their time, to be successful at whatever you put you mind to you have to commit some of your valuable time to the goals that you are trying to reach.

We all have the same amount of time as everyone else in the world, we all have 24hrs in our days but some of us are very good at using that time to reach our goals of financial freedom.

What i would like you all to do is to commit to spending at least 1 or 2 hrs a day for at least 5 days a week for the next month and see how far you can get, i am sure you will be surprised at how much you all can achieve.

All the best,

Mark.

I think the problem is when people do not see results right away they get discouraged and quit. Your right, sticking with it and putting at least 1-2 hrs in every day is a good way to still get things done and not burn out.

That's is correct. Too many people are looking for instants results instead of planting the seed, watering it and watching it grow.

A brilliant subject. However, sometimes even with the best will in the world, life can sometimes pull you away from building a successful business. It happened to me last year and it was not possible to even spend an hour a day on building my business.

But, I am committed to this so here I am stronger than before. Setting achievable short term and long term goals plus working with a schedule that fits everything in on a day to day basis.

You never know where life can take you. It is important to always stay focused.

I agree Lauren. My aim with this post is to get the people thinking who are just spending way too much time watching tv rather than building their future, I hope I did not offend you that was not my intention.

No, I wasn't offended. Sorry, I did not mean to come across like that. It is sometimes difficult to judge voice tone through text.

I was just saying that sometimes there are good reasons for not sticking to the plan and I agree that sitting watching tv is not very productive and not a good reason.

You've got an excellent point, Mark.

I would add: If you're having problems reaching the goal, maybe you should look at your path. Some of the brightest lights here have failure stories to share.

If they just tried one thing, they might never have been success stories! Instead, they diversified - put their eggs in several baskets. Particularly, I'm thinking of nathaniel when I talk about this. I think Jay would say the same thing though. In fact, one of his broadcasts after getting out of the hospital centered on building a business with residual income and he talked about his many different endeavors - all added up - kept him earning, even when he could not work. Kinda neat!

I imagine they got started one basket at a time though. Focus is very important too :-)

Best wishes on your journey!

Eddie

The only way we learn is to make mistakes and fail a few time, I feel that I am a much better person from the failures that I have had.

You are absolutely right! It is that point in time when the 'newness' starts to wear off and WA seems to be just another 'thing' that people fall back....your suggestion is excellent!

Time management is the key to success, you are right when people first start they have all the best intentions in the world but then the excitement wears off and they just give in.
