Why Few Succeed And Most Fail
Here’s why some people succeed but the vast majority of people fail.
This is something that was always interesting to me..
My first business that I ever got into was a business model called network marketing, or multi-level marketing. There’s some people in the business that had massive, massive success, made millions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of dollars, and there’s some people that never made any money.
I always wondered, what was the difference? Everyone was doing the same thing. They were selling the same product. So I was wondering, what is the difference?
And then I started realizing that it wasn’t just only in that business, but it was with
anything in life. It was with professional athletes. It was with everything out there. There’s a
small group of people that really succeed and they really win, and then there’s this 80% of the people that never have really any success.
I used to talk to my dad about it, and we finally came to a conclusion about this. If I were to narrow it down to just one thing, it comes down to frickin’ ambition. It comes down to how hungry you are, your desire. How bad that you want it?
Even in Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich, the first thing that he talks about is if you don’t have a white hot burning desire, then nothing else matters. The best strategy doesn’t matter. The best coach doesn’t matter. The best techniques don’t matter. It all comes from within, this white hot burning desire.
I remember I was watching a video where somebody else said it very eloquently. They said it’s
like grit. It was a TED talk that I was watching and I think it was a Stanford or Harvard professor talking about this. They said that what it really comes down to, success in anything, is it comes down to grit. How bad do you really want it..
So, I don’t necessarily know how you could teach that. But that is the determining
factor. So if you don’t have hunger, if you don’t have ambition, then you’re gonna have
to try to find it somehow, ’cause I don’t know how I could possibly give it to you. But
you’ve gotta have white hot burning desire if you wanna succeed in anything.
