How to fail… The simple guide

I have the privilege of working with hundreds of people on a weekly basis, I also know that everyone I meet has the potential for success in them. The reality is that most of these people will never become successful. You may think that I am being judgemental, harsh and so rude to observe people like that. You may ask why I think like this.

Well the answer to me is very clear, these people have one thing in common that inhibits their success… That one thing is greed and because of this they believe that in some way they are entitled to success.

No, unfortunately success comes from thinking about others and putting them first, instead of thinking about yourself and what you can get. Stop thinking WIIFM? I am reminded of the words of Zig Ziglar who said ‘“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”

The simple guide to failure is to be greedy, if you are not achieving the success you think you deserve, perhaps it is time to do some introspection

    So true Rich!! That is why I try to sponser as many people as possible. All I require in return is their commitment to work hard!
