Why Do Most People Run Away From Success And Choose To Be First Class Failures ?

Oct 20, 2007
Nobody wants to be a failure. Everybody wants to be a successful.

The simple fact is that to work hard to become successful in life is the goal of everybody unless you are ready to throw in the towel and give up on your efforts and chances of becoming a success.

In this day and age there is a ton of material available with the focus on helping people reach their goals at something. This material includes counseling programs, articles and books that speak of different ways to achieve success.

However, the level of success is not relative to those who use it even if they study the same product and use the right steps. Needless to say not everyone who utilizes this material become successful.

Now you have to ask, what is required to become successful? Several experts in their respective fields whether it be counselors or psychologists have established certain advice guidelines regarding the best ways for one to achieve success but none of them can really assure success.

The most reasonable explanation of this is that most people have their own way of becoming successful. They only use the advice of the experts as a general guide.

But if they make use of the same material, advice or guidelines available to them to teach them success, there is one major factor that allows one to gain a higher level of success. That factor is extra effort. Those that gain more success are willing to work and strive harder.

Making this extra effort is the determining factor in gaining success. What is ironic is that is the part of the whole process that is often overlooked. Those that seem to make an effort toward obtaining success, only to find failure believe that their efforts where good enough. They are left with this conclusion in their own minds that it just wasn't meant to be and success is far from their reach.

Success should not be out of reach of anyone because success knows no boundaries. It is not something for just the privileged few. From those who can afford to the those not so fortunate to begin with and a strong desire to obtain it, success is for any and everyone. Success is for anyone that is willing to exert that extra effort that is required.

All this really means is, that if you want to be successful in life, a little "extra" in anything you do to work toward your goal needs to be exercised. It could be, extra effort, extra motivation, extra time, extra studying, extra reading etc.

Most people fail, or at least fail at their attempt to gain more success because the actions they have taken are not quite good enough. They simply overlooked the fact that in order to achieve their goal they need to make that extra effort.

To fully comprehend the meaning of making that extra effort, you must understand this:

1. People who have found success and make that extra effort have a plan and direction in life. This explains when they feel they have not achieved their objective, they are willing to work a little harder.

2. Those who come close to success make the necessary effort, but the true winners receive ultimate success by making that extra effort above and beyond to ensure their dreams come to fruition.

3. Stubborn determination, motivation and drive are all prerequisites of success and the truly successful people possess these traits.

Attitude plays a huge part toward success. Making that extra effort is not hard. It just means that you are almost there but that little boost of "extra" is required as the final step to your goals.

Make your dreams a reality. Encourage yourself to make that extra effort to go for it with an attitude of unbending determination and motivation. Remember, you are almost there, just give a little extra effort. You will thank yourself in the long run.
