You wonder why your project does not pick up, why things don't go as you want them and why you stumble all the time. We know why it's happening. We know you fail for reasons. We know you are missing out things. We even know you will fail and you don't stand a chance in coming days-if only you change. But we believe you can succeed, you can make a difference as well and we care. We want you to know what you're doing wrong and here it is: 7 reasons why you will fail-

[1] You are afraid of failure

Most people never pick up the phone and most people never ask. And that’s what separates, sometimes, the people that do things from the people that just dream about them. You gotta act and you gotta be willing to fail. If you are afraid of failing, you won’t get very far. ~Steve Jobs‬

[2] You are reluctant to find you passion

First reason is that no matter how many times people tell you, "If you want a great career, you have to pursue your passion, you have to pursue your dreams, you have to pursue, the greatest fascination in your life," you hear it again and again and then you decide not to do it. 

[3] You give excuses

You're going to fail, because, because you're not going to do it, because you will have invented a new excuse, any excuse to fail to take action, and this excuse I've heard so many times. 

[4] You are afraid to pursue your passion

You're afraid to pursue your passion. You're afraid to look ridiculous. You're afraid to try. You're afraid you may fail. Great friend, great spouse, great parent, great career. Is that not a package? Is that not who you are? How can you be one without the other? But you're afraid.

[5] You don’t want it badly enough

I’m here to tell you that most of you say you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad, you just kind of want it. You don’t want it badder than you wanna party, you don’t want it as much as you want to be cool.~ Eric Thomas

[6] You don’t want to work harder. You are lazy

The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is: I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, but if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: you’re getting off first, or I’m gonna die. It’s really that simple. ~ Will Smith

[7] You are distracted

Distraction is the new illness of our generation of entrepreneurs. There is too much noise, too much information overload. If you don’t start controlling your environment, you are destined to FAIL.~Ali Mese
