Why Some People Almost Always Successful?

"Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don't fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day." JIM ROHN

Like everyone else, I´ve spent some time thinking about why some people are so successful in life. And what factors in success that are under more personal control than others. Successful people might be intelligent. Or have had a socially well connected upbringings. Or be naturally energetic and open and positive. But a lot of the factors that make some people more successful at almost anything in life are very much under their control. And much can be improved in anyone’s life by learning from the people that have gone before us.

Here are some of the thoughts on success that I´ve come up with from reading/watching documentaries Rata Penuhthroughout the years about people such as Michael Jordan, Thomas Edison, Eleanor Roosevelt and Henry Ford. The following factors of success are just a few and I´m quite sure there are a lot more.

- They make decisions and take action
Right or wrong action, they take it. Either way it’s always better than making no decisions and taking no action at all. As Franklin Roosevelt said: “It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”

- They do things even when they don´t feel like it
I think this is a pretty huge factor. A lot of us back down when we don´t want to do something, even though it may eventually bring us to a wonderful experience or goal. Successful people may not always like doing some of the things they have to do. But they do them anyway. And in the longer run that makes all the difference.
