Inspired from: Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Life’s greatest tragedy consists of men and women who earnestly try, and fail! The tragedy lies in the overwhelmingly large majority of people who fail, as compared to the few who succeed….and even more tragic are the scores of individuals who don’t, after a failure, pick themselves back up, dust themselves off, and try again!

As you review this list, check yourself by it, point by point, for the purpose of discovering how many of these causes-of-failure stand between you and success.

  1. Lack of a well-defined purpose in life.
  2. Lack of ambition to aim above mediocrity.
  3. Insufficient education.
  4. Lack of self-discipline.
  5. Ill health.
