Why people fail?

Feel so sad and pale!

Many reasons are there for their failure

Reasons may be procrastination

May be fear of failure

Some say due to lack of self confidence and conviction

Others say lack of determination

These reasons may be true for failure

Nobody can deny this for sure.

Why people fail?

Feel so sad and pale!

One of the main reason is reluctance to learn

Yes – if you don’t learn

How can you earn?

Learn new skills

Learn to be expert, at least in one skill

Learn everything and tit – bits

So that nobody can cheat.

Never try to go ahead without any plan

Plan well and plan to succeed

Also increase your self – esteem.

Why people fail?

Feel so sad and pale!

Many lack understanding of goal – setting process

Lack of commitment to goal

These become the cause of failure.

Your inactivity and analysis after analysis

Certain to bring paralysis of analysis and failure.

Find the real destination

Always stick to reach the destination

Strengthen your strength to reach your destination

Attain required skills and increase your motivation.

Why people fail?

Feel sad and pale!

People don’t dare to be different

Don’t care about discipline and persistence

Many lack humility and show resistance.

They don’t take advice

But, they argue against advice

This one can say is a big vice.

Why people fail?

Feel so sad and pale!


One has to be goal – oriented

Not to lose focus and not to be distracted.

Never fail to network

Always build strong relationships

Believe that network always works

And this brings cooperation and results that can surely make one happy.

Why people fail?

Feel so sad and pale!

Please always take care of others as far as possible

But never never forget to take care of yourself.

Take responsibility for what happens in your life

Always believe anything is possible

Try your best – even to do the impossible.

Bring the faith in yourself

And believe in yourself always

Have conviction and try to be competent always.

Learn from the past mistakes

Don’t repeat the same mistakes again and again .

Why people fail?

Feel so sad and pale!

Don’t have fatalistic attitude – never, never

Be bold and be a risk – taker

Have ambition and aim high

Control your spending – still increase your enthusiasm.

Be honest to yourself

Be honest to others

Be friendly

Have collaboration with others

Oh – my dear friends!

Please take care of the points given above

You will not see the face of failure

Please don’t see the face of failure
