Thread: Not, why do people fail? But, why do people succeed?

    I have studied successful people all of my life. Most do not succeed because they follow any of the textbook theories. Those are just tools. I typically see a combination of three things with successful people.

    1. A good idea or a better way of doing something.

    2. Insight and knowledge. Successful people can visualize a goal and develop a path to the goal, while avoiding most of the pitfalls that cause others to fail.

    3. Relentless, unyielding persistence to achieve a goal.

    The third tends to be the most important factor, but the first two must exist, as well. Lots of good ideas fail because people are not dedicated enough to be persistent, and lots of brilliant people never succeed at making money.

    Then again, there are some successful people that I've studied who just seem to be lucky, because they do not appear to have any particular persistence or talent. A few of these have become convicted felons.

    Absolutely, persistence is the most important thing,if you fail once,you need to get back up,learn what you did wrong,and do it again,maybe you will fail again,but the third time,you will know and you wont make that mistake every again.
    The problem for most people is,by the time their reach this moment it requires you to get backup in the third time,they give up,they think it's not worth it and just give up.There is a great quote on TKA that I really like

    We greatly overestimate what we can accomplish in a month. But we greatly underestimate what we can accomplish in a year.
    That explains it pretty well,if you want to be successful in ANYTHING,internet marketing requires the same virtues like any other business,goal or anything in that direction.
