Formula of success

Reasons for failure Napoleon Hill

8. Procrastination – Many people go through their lives as failures because they wait for the “right time” to do something. The time will never be right and it is up to us to start doing things with what we have. We then need to keep improvising along the way.

9. Lack of persistence – Failure cannot cope with persistence. Those who retreat at the first sign of defeat are bound to fail. Success comes to only those who persevere.

10. Negative personality – The author’s argument is quite understandable when he says success comes through the application of power, power is attained through co-operative efforts of other people and a negative personality will never induce cooperation because he will repel people. Stay positive.

11. Lack of controlled sex urge – Sexual energy is among the most powerful stimuli that can move people into action, claims the author. And being the powerful driver that it is, it must be controlled, transmuted and moved into other channels. A person who isn’t in control of his sexual urges is bound to be self-destructive.

12. Uncontrolled desire for ”something for nothing” – It is a common tendency for people to want something without having to give anything in return. A typical example of this is gambling and this kind of uncontrolled desire is a recipe for failure. Instead of wanting something for nothing, one should learn the importance of exchanging values.

13. Lack of a well-defined power of decision – Successful men are good and fast decision makers. Slowness in making decisions or the inability to make decisions will tie one to the treadmill of failure. Therefore, do not be indecisive.

14. One or more of the 6 basic fears – People often fail because they are afraid and these six basic fears are what often stop people from taking action:

a. Fear of poverty.

b. Fear of criticism.

c. Fear of ill-health.

d. Fear of the loss of love of someone.

e. The fear of old age.

f. The fear of death.

Fear is a state of mind, and more often than not, a person can master the state of his mind with considerable effort and practice. While discussing at length about each of these fears is beyond the scope of this article. It is prudent to know that presence of one or more of these basic fears are a trigger for failure.
