Just examine these factors, because one of them could be the cause why you fail.  By working to overcome them, you can release the brakes that are holding you back to your success.

  I want to know that life is like a ten speed bicycle.  Most of us have gears we never use.
Success involves taking calculated risks.  Risk taking does not mean gambling foolishly and behaving irresponsibly.  People sometimes mistake irresponsible and rash behaviour as risk taking.  They end up with negative results and blame it on bad luck.
Risk taking is relative.  The concept of risk varies from person to person and can be a result of training.  To both a trained mountain climber and a novice, mountain climbing is risky, but to the trained person it is not irresponsible risk taking.
Responsible risk taking is based on knowledge, training, careful study, confidence and competence factors that give you the courage to act while facing fear.  The person who never attempts anything risky makes no mistakes. 
However, not making the attempt is often a bigger mistake than making the attempt and failing.
Also indecision is habit forming and very contagious.  Many opportunities are lost because of indecision.  Take risks, but do not gamble.  Risk takers move ahead with their eyes open while gamblers shoot in the dark.
When problems seem insurmountable, quitting may look like the easiest way out.  It is true for every marriage, job and relationship.  Winners are struck but not destroyed.  We all have had our setbacks in life.  But failing does not mean we are failures.
What is the difference between persistence and obstinacy?  The difference is that persistence represents a strong will and obstinacy represents a strong won't. Hear this; most people fail not because they lack knowledge or talent but because they quit.
The total secret of success lies in two traits; persistence and resistance.  Persist in what must be done and resist from what ought not to be done.
It is the desire to make a million overnight has made the lottery a flourishing business.  We are living in an age of instant gratification.  There is a pill for everything, from waking you up to putting you to sleep.
People want to take a pill to get rid of their problems.  In the same way when people want to be instant millionaires, they take shortcuts and compromise on their integrity.  Remember that when going for instant gratification, one never thinks of consequences, only of momentary pleasures.
Today's generation defines the ideal diet as one that will take off some weights for good intentions.  These are people who do not want any more birthdays but want all the presents.  When you think short term, not long term, it is limited vision.
With limited vision you will never see any worthwhile goals.  People make substitutions where they ought not to.  For example, in relationships, they trade money and gifts for affection and time.
Some people find it easier to buy things for their children and spouse to compensate for their absence than to spend time interacting with them.
Understand this; when we do not have our priorities right, we waste time, not realizing that time wasted is life wasted.  Prioritizing requires discipline to do what needs to be done rather than taking action based on our moods and fancies.
These days too much emphasis is placed on success and failure rather than doing one's best.  How do you cope with defeat and problems?  Your response to this question says a lot about your character.
One of the keys to solving this mystery of success is understanding your priorities.  Some people set their sights on money, power, fame or possessions. We have to understand our priorities. 
Success does not come by reading or memorizing the principles that lead to success, but by understanding them and setting your priorities to apply them.  Hear this story: A king once called his executive and asked them to write down the wisdom of the ages so that he could pass it on to future generations.
After a lot of work, the executives came up with several volumes of wisdom and presented them to the king.  The king called his executives and said that it was too long and that people would not read it.
The king told his executives they would have to condense it.  The executives went back to work and came back with one volume.  The king said it was still too long so they came back again with one chapter; again it was too long.
Even one page was too long, said the king.  Finally, the executives brought back one sentence that satisfied the king.  He said that if there was one piece of wisdom that he wanted to pass on to future generations, it would be: THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH!
Basically, there is no free lunch, means that you do not get something for nothing.  In other words, you get what you put in.  If you do not put much into a project, you won't get much out of it.
Of course every society has its share of free loaders who are looking for something for nothing.  There are two ways of getting rid of weeds in your yard; the easy way and the not so easy way.  The easy way may be to run a lawnmower; the yard looks fine for a while, but it is only a temporary solution.
Soon the weeds are back.  The not so easy way means getting down on your hands and knees and pulling out the weeds by the roots.  It is time consuming and painful, but the weeds will stay away for a longer time. 
The first solution appeared easy, but the problem remained.  The second solution was not so easy, but took care of the problem from the roots.  They key is to get to the root of the problem.  The same is true of our attitudes in life.  Some people spread their attitudes of bitterness and resentment and these attitudes keep cropping up in different parts of their lives.
The problem with people today is that they want instant answers.  They are looking for one-minute solutions to everything.  Like instant coffee they want instant happiness, but there are no quick fixes.  This attitude leads to disappointment.
See you at the top of success.
