Success Vs Failure – 7 Differences Between Those Who Succeed And Fail

success vs failure

Want to know the difference between success vs failure? Here they are: the 7 main differences between those who succeed and fail at achieving their dreams.

Success is a pretty fascinating thing.

There are great people in this world with every possible advantage that struggle with success and life in general.

On the other hand, it’s also easy to find people with no education, a poor attitude, and a lack of morality that seem to thrive.

Both groups of people want to get ahead deep down, but only one is successful. Why is that?

Successful people, regardless of their advantages or disadvantages, have one thing in common: they consistently work at their goals.

All in all, it’s necessary to do everything you can to be successful and take that attitude into the marketplace.

You must be willing to compete, whether it be for a job or to see your business become successful.

Consider the following quotes:

If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. Lawrence J. Peter

The great danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark. Michelangelo

The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score. Bill Copeland

Begin with the end in mind. Stephen Covey

In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.

If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time. Zig Ziglar

If you’re bored with life you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things, you don’t have enough goals. Lou Holtz

Add these behaviors to your life and create more success:


TIP # 1 – Make use of what you have.

This includes your capabilities, time, and other resources.

There’s no reason to wait until you learn something new, save a certain amount of money, or make the right contacts.

You can do those things on the side, but the bulk of your time should be spent on doing everything you can with what you currently possess.


TIP # 2 – Read books that enable you to spend your time more productively.

By learning more, you can correct your mistakes and use your time more wisely.

The right book can teach you more discipline or how to better interact with others.

  • Books give you access to the very best minds in the world, past and present. Every book you read can improve you in some way and enhance the way you spend your time.


TIP # 3 – Commit to being your best.

Most of us are either too lazy or too afraid to bring our best to each day.

Discipline and courage are required if you want to consistently be successful at a high level.


TIP #4 – Make plans.

Dreams are nice, but they’re just a starting point.

You must convert your dreams into concrete plans, and then put everything you have into executing those plans.

  • Building a life without a good plan is like trying to build a home without a good plan. Eventually you run into trouble and must use make-shift solutions just to keep it from falling apart.


TIP #5 – Plan your day, but not all of it.

Ensure that you can hit the ground running, but leave yourself enough wiggle room to take advantage of any opportunities that present themselves along the way.

  • The same goes for your week, month, and year. Have a good, solid outline for your time for at least the next year.


TIP #6 – View problems as challenges to be solved.

Becoming successful requires dealing with a nearly endless stream of obstacles.

View these obstacles as challenges that make you stronger, smarter, and more capable to handle the next challenge.

The bigger the challenge you’re able to solve, the more successful you will become.

When you face difficult times, know that challenges are not sent to destroy you. They’re sent to promote, increase and strengthen you. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the opportunity for growth.

Everyone faces challenges in life. It’s a matter of how you learn to overcome them and use them to your advantage. Celestine Chua

You don’t become enormously successful without encountering a number of extremely challenging problems. Mark Victor Hansen

Don’t run away from a challenge. Instead, run toward it, the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet and the more difficult the victory; the greater the happiness in winning. -Kemmy Nola


TIP # 7 – Avoid distractions.

Spend your time on the most important activities.

If learning to play piano is a priority for you, spending time perfecting your photography skills, playing the guitar, and learning to oil paint ensures that you’ll never become the best pianist you can be.

You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks. – Winston S. Churchill

According to one Harvard study, we spend nearly 50 percent of our waking time thinking about something other than what we’re really supposed to be doing. And perhaps that’s the main reason the universe is not helping you in achieving what you want because you yourself are not clear & based on your deliriums, wildness & inattentions it is simply not clear what you want.

How the hell anyone for that matter would come to know what you want unless you consistently, relentlessly work towards it. Let you remind yourself that your reality exists only in your mind & nowhere else. It is you who tell to universe what is important to you, what you believe, what you fear & what you are focused on.

If you are focused, committed, hopeful & positive, you are presented with more relevant solutions instead of problems, more good news instead of bad news & more good people instead of negative people. Otherwise your ambiguousness will surely hold you from reaching the next levels of fulfillment, happiness & success.

Let you soon create habits, lifestyle, practices that signal to yourself, your world & obviously to universe that you are in distraction-free mode & allow the universe to respond to your momentum with more & bless you far more abundantly than all you want & deserve. Stay Focused, Wholehearted & Work Hard! – Rajesh Goyal

We have to learn to manage the turmoil created by our own thoughts. This can be done by overcoming mental disturbances and distractions, resorting to positive self-affirmations and meditation and focusing on all that is good around us. – Sanchita Pandey

Now it’s easy to look around and see that the universe doesn’t always judge people on their worth when it comes to success.

You may know plenty of terrible people that are doing well, and plenty of wonderful people that are struggling.

Our self worth is something we are born with and it isn’t impacted by the amount of success we achieve in our life – because WE GET TO DECIDE WHAT SUCCESS MEANS TO US.


What it comes down to in life is that you are chasing something that makes your soul HAPPY and that you have a plan that you action each day.

That is the ultimate determiner of success.

Make a plan for your life today and live the life you want.
