17 REASON’S PEOPLE FAIL!!!

Perhaps the most important reason people fail is because they don’t have the natural ability to succeed in an exceptional way. Your memory may not be that good which is important in managerial positions or you may not be energetic or self driven enough and may be lazy, a procrastinator, and always trying to take the easy way out. Yes, a great memory, being a fast learner, and being supper energetic are characteristics you often need to make an exceptional impact in life.

In sports it helps if you have been physically gifted with excellent coordination, endurance, great muscle memory, and strength. Yes, some humans are born with the right muscle structure and type to run the fastest and some of the best acrobats are born with natural flexibility much beyond the average. It is a sad fact of life that humans are born unequal with different natural strengths and weaknesses. It greatly helps if you are born with a high IQ or incredible physical abilities. Yes, without natural talent you still may be able to make it with smart hard work but you also run the risk of premature burnout mentally or physically. Yes, it is also true that without hard smart work a high IQ or great physical ability will be largely wasted and you may still not amount to very much in life.

WANT SUCCESSFUL OFFSPRING? DO THESE 9 THINGS!!!

Don’t tell them they can be anything that they want but steer them into good paying professions.

Eating dinner as a family has social and verbal benefits.

Enforce or limit screen time on tablets and cellphones to about an hour for young children and have them engage with the real world of books, playing, etc.

When mothers work outside the home then daughters tend to also hold more responsible jobs when they grow up.

Offspring with greater success tended to do chores as a child.

Offspring who learn delayed gratification or do unpleasant things at home without being instantly rewarded tended to perform better in careers.

Reading to young children and teaching them to read as soon as possible is an aid in better performance in school and elsewhere.

Let them fail and learn from their mistakes on their own builds character.

Let them travel to other locations and to foreign countries if possible since this stimulates a desire to try new things and appreciate different points of view.

 

What this list does not include is the fundamental fact that if the parents are trustworthy or have integrity, dependability, competence, and good communication skills then their offspring also tend to follow in their footsteps personality wise.

27 THINGS WHICH WILL INCREASE THE PROBABILITY OF SUCCESS IN YOUR LIFE!!!

Principles-of-Success1-300x209

Unless you are a celebrity or the object of some human’s jealousy you will find that most humans don’t really care that much whether you got a new car or promotion. You really shouldn’t let other’s opinions of you guide your behavior, especially if they are lavishing attention on you hoping to get some benefit out of you. We all like to be praised by others but what is most important is how we feel about our situation in life personally and how competent we are in what we are doing.

Family, close friends, and humans in general who really care about you are far more interested in your personality and the quality of the human interaction rather than your accomplishments and possessions.

Arranging your life primarily in the pursuit of money will not make you happy in the long duration because how successfully you spend your time, energy, and money on other humans will really determine your state of happiness in the long duration. Paying attention to the quality of your life experiences and not just a quantity of money is the true source of happiness without any regrets in old age for being too myopically focused on wealth and not having lived a full balanced life.

Avoid debt as much as possible because debt incurred by profligate spending and investing in a job poor largely useless education in young adulthood will become a terrible financial burden for the rest of your adult life. Of course you can declare bankruptcy and live much of your life with a debit card existence.

Learn how to be more persuasive and learn how to acquire emotional intelligence which will be a great advantage when trying to influence other humans. You will learn how to communicate and change other human minds, instill confidence in others, and sooth their fears. This means being a powerful communicator and the potential to become a human leader in any profession if you also have a good memory for names.

Have integrity, be dependable and competent which means being moral and responsible for your own actions and consequences while treating others with as much respect as they deserve and helping those in need where appropriate. Guard your integrity jealously because trust and respect from others is impossible without it.

Prepare for the unexpected or have a plan B in mind if chaos breaks out. An emergency financial savings is the safety net when loss of a job, loss of spouse, or business failure surfaces to cause chaotic turmoil.

In business success means outperforming or being better than your competitors. If you are at the top then competing with yourself or becoming better at what you are doing is the key to remaining at the top.

Selfawareness or knowing yourself and realizing that others view you the same way is a big advantage when interacting and working with others.

Personal biases or personal opinions and beliefs affect the way that you view the world so it is important to understand that any decision which you make will be dependent on them to a large extent. When confronted with failure it is time to reflect and possibly modify or change those opinions and beliefs to ones that will mean success in future attempts at goal achievement.

Accept that the past can’t be changed. Live in the present courageously making plans for a better future yet to come.

Humans and ideas much different than your own are the source for creativity and possible enrichment of your life. You will learn more and potentially grow faster in your understanding of possibilities yet to be achieved.

Travel more or surf the internet visiting other places and cultures. New perspectives on business and life will refresh you and reveal new possibilities to take advantage of.

The truly successful have a passion for what they are doing and do it well so if you haven’t found anything to be passionate about then keep looking or take risks to find out what that might be.

An impulsive reaction influenced by anger or panic can ruin a lifetime of work in a relatively short duration so don’t let your emotions get the best of you when making important decisions.

Holding grudges consumes much time and energy holding on to hatred so try to forgive a stranger or family member if they have not been immoral.

Recognize that there is much that you don’t know. If you find someone more knowledgeable then try to delegate the relevant task. If you are confronted with a discussion where you lack sufficient knowledge then resist the urge to jump in and contribute and being foolish in the process.

If you are competent and believe in yourself the confidence will encourage others to believe what you say.

Everyone has a fear of failing but the successful ones overcome the fearful anxiety and move forward with action and don’t let fear restrain them that often.

It is good to have good role models or heroes whom you are trying to imitate or learn from. Not all the knowledge that you acquire will be useful in a rapidly changing technological era. Some new useful creativity will be your responsibility to discover and apply to new ever changing circumstances.

Avoiding crippling addictive bad habits like gambling, alcohol, drugs, promiscuity, pornography, and impulsive shopping will optimize your ability to function most effectively and efficiently at work and home.

Take care of your health by eating organic and getting enough exercise and sleep. Nothing will short circuit a successful career faster than failing health in your vital years.

Nothing is perfectly predictable and the good guys don’t always win in the real world. This sometimes means being content or grateful for what you have  so far rather than what you hope to have which doesn’t seem to be materializing for you.

Your happy optimistic attitude starts out as a conscious desire which soon becomes a good habit or the happy optimistic attitude unrelentingly repeats itself in your life as you live it.

You need to be honest with yourself and know your weaknesses as well as your strengths. Knowing your weaknesses you can either try to strengthen them with new knowledge and skills or you can hire humans who are not weak in your area to work for you if it is a business.

An opportunity may arise suddenly and it may seem like unexpected luck. Talent, the right useful education, and hard work is essential which qualifies you for an opportunity when it comes along even though sometimes there may be a desire to give up prematurely because no breaks or good fortune seem to be coming your way.

When you become very successful try to give back by supporting truly worthwhile causes such as wilderness conservation and restoration, sustainable research, and basic medical and biological research. You will be promoting the possibility of a better life for future generations.

REASONS FOR THE 50 YEAR SUCCESS OF BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC.!!!

BERKSHIRE-HATHAWAY

Charlie Munger, Warren Buffet’s partner, has an excellent letter which details the operational principles of Berkshire Hathaway which has led to it’s phenomenal growth success historically but it is highly unlikely that it will be repeated by an imitator in the new business economic environment. I have a link to the detailed original letter at the end of this blog article.

Warren Buffet was successful for all the reasons cited in Charlie Munger’s letter but I will briefly summarize the most important reasons for his success and they are things which new entrepreneurs should take into consideration when they are running their own diversified organizations.

Warren was and is thrifty in the old fashioned sense with money. He currently has a cash reserve or a traditional savings account of about 60 billion dollars.  With this cash reserve he has weathered hard financial swings in interest rates and difficult economic times because his debt is minimal and for all practical purposes non existent. He doesn’t have to pay lenders fluctuating interest rates because he is virtually debt free and purchases almost all his subsidiaries with cash so he has no “mortgage” payments to worry about. He owns the subsidiaries free and clear and his credit rating is excellent!

Second in importance is perhaps the loyalty he demands and also gives to the talented hand picked CEOs of subsidiaries and asks them for backup replacement suggestions in case they themselves are no longer able to run the subsidiary. Warren has a long term investment view of business and is not interested in the whims and hype of short term investments for large profits with corresponding high risk.

Wise financial management comes first and the quality of talented hand picked human CEOs to run the subsidiaries is of secondary importance. CEOs are treated justly with fixed compensation not dependent on volatile profits or losses benefiting or injuring the subsidiary. There is no threat of mandatory termination of a job or retirement based on age so job security is guaranteed the CEO as long as they are mentally and physically fit enough to run the organization.

Thirdly Warren grants considerable autonomy to the subsidiaries and there is no bloated bureaucracy at headquarters. He does not believe in the principle that one set of rules should govern all the subsidiary financial and organizational structures but is a believer in diversified approaches or rules which work best for each subsidiary specialty.

The most impressive leadership qualities of Warren are that he always gives an honest appraisal of the financial and organizational facts to shareholders and any other interested party. He allocates as much time as is necessary to answer all shareholder questions in sometimes lengthy sessions. In effect, you get no BS from Warren. He is a straight shooter and honest and truthful to the core.

As a truly great leader one of Warren’s first priorities is to set aside quiet time for thinking, reflection, researching or reading to continue to expand his knowledge base and keep him current with business trends.

Warren has taken time out and schmoozed with or mentored other business greats like Bill Gates who is one of his greatest supporters.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HUMBLENESS+

QmZIdjB6NVZWNU0x_o_how-to-pronounce-humbleness

Humbleness: n. being successful but not overtly showing pride and/or arrogance about it and frequently hoping to be treated as an equally worthy human to others.

 

Humbleness need not mean that you don’t have pride in your success but it merely means that you overtly don’t communicate it to others because showing pride and/or being arrogant is a sign of boasting and/or superiority which humans intensely dislike most of the time.

 

Most humans will intuitively admire and respect your success at something and most humans, unless they are gullible, don’t like boasters and humans who put them down and communicate their superiority over them.

 

Some humans make a good business bragging about their supposed success at a profession, gambling, or drinking prowess and are good at selfpromotion so being humble under all circumstances is not necessarily the smartest thing to be doing all the time. Sometimes you have to toot your own horn so to speak to be noticed by others if your success is not obvious to all who encounter you.

 

Con artists are frequently good braggers and many gullible humans are influenced by all the bravado and begin to trust the untrustworthy.

4 KEYS TO BUSINESS SUCCESS IN A NUTSHELL!!!

Business-Success

In a nutshell -satisfy your customers, have an efficient business structure with quality motivated workers, have a research and development department, and advertise.

What is important are the humans- the customers, the workers, the improvers, and the advertisers. The important foundation is quality information, goods, and services.

Provide information, goods, and services which the customer needs or wants and keep them happy with good customer service.

Run an efficient business with a talented charismatic leader at the top and talented and motivated managers and workers who feel that they have a stake in running the business successfully and feel they can work their way to near the top if they have a desire and apply themselves.

Have a research and development department in charge of improving customer information, goods, and services, especially one which tries to keep up with new innovation or trends in the business and tests new information, goods, and services.

Promote your business or advertise to maintain a visible presence in the world. Word of mouth advertising is what you hope for but you can speed up your popularity with tempting advertising propaganda.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PATIENCE

images

Modern society is very impatient. We want our food fast, we want fast money, fast conversation, fast relationships, fast entertainment, fast education, some want fast cars, and many want fast solutions to problems in life.

The result is a narcissistic feel good culture wanting instant gratification in almost everything. If we quickly don’t get what we want then we try to escape our felt confinement with addictive drugs or happy pills and easily succumb to other addictive behaviors such as pornography, impulsive shopping, gambling, and over eating.

Many of us don’t realize that selfcontrol and patiently working and planning ahead to reach worthwhile goals in life is much more important than living an impulsive largely irrational daily existence where one day is pretty much the same as the other day and no substantial progress is made.

Fewer and fewer take time out from the rat race to really analyze and think about the life which we are living and may actually want to live in the future.

Patience is not a virtue if you are just lounging around not doing much or just engaging in mostly trivial pleasure seeking pursuits. Patience is a virtue if you are using that time wisely to pursue your long duration goals as well as some short duration goals. Patiently working to get what you most value in life is the true key to successful and happy living in the long duration.

If you are not patiently learning new skills and new knowledge then you will probably be stuck in your rut on into the foreseeable future until some crisis happens in your life which makes you think about and maybe change your largely dysfunctional lifestyle of impulsive impatience.

I am not advocating that you patiently wait for good things to happen in your life. I am advocating that you patiently work and do things to increase the probability that good things will happen in your life not only in the short duration but also in the long duration.

Patience: n. a willingness to endure (suffering and/or provocation) and/or (delay and/or tediousness) and/or (incompetence and/or partence) and/or (doing with composure and/or doing with selfcontrol when trying to achieve a goal(s))

 

Partence: n. using up much time trying to achieve a goal(s)

improvement

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SUCCESSFUL?

Success-01

Some are leaders, most are followers, and the remainder are leaders and followers within organizations. Who you become will determine whether you will consider yourself a success in life. Few realize that being a follower can also be a successful life even though you don’t have many friends and don’t become rich along the way.

If you want to become a top leader then you will have to have good social skills or what is called emotional IQ where you can evaluate the worth of an individual as a worker or useful participant in your organization rather successfully. Some signs of leadership potential is having a good memory for names, getting good grades in school, being the head of one or more clubs in school, and having excellent skills and knowledge about the organization which you will be leading and the functions it performs.

If you enjoy being with humans and interact with them successfully then you are leadership potential.  It greatly helps if you have an education from a prestigious university and if your family is rich and socially well connected but you can also try to work your way up an organization starting at the relative bottom and working your way up to a high leadership position based on a good fundamentals skill set.

Most with leadership potential wind up working in middle management and never work their way up to the top leadership position unless they start a business of their own and are the leaders right from the start.

Most of us are successful if we have a job or career which pays well and can afford a family which will be our primary legacy when we reach old age.

Success for most of us is living day to day, paying our bills, and being relatively happy at what we are doing. If you live a healthy life, have some excitement along the way, and die at a relatively old age then you can consider your life to have been a success.

If you have contributed to conservation organizations and tried to live sustainably trying to conserve biodiversity then you have truly been a morally outstanding citizen of the world and nature will thank you for it.

If you are an honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, and competent human who cares about biodiversity then you are living a successful life and should be proud of yourself.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHALLENGE

challenges

Challenge: v. to try to achieve a goal(s) which will take an above average quantity of effort to achieve and frequently does not have a great probability of being achieved and/or to ask to compete in a subset(s)

In life there are many challenges. We are asked to compete with others to see who can read, run, or do a task the fastest. We compete with others for grades, jobs, and spouses and have many other challenges or goals in life which we try to fulfill to the best of our ability.

Individuals compete with one another but so do organizations and nations. Life is filled with challenges along the way and some of us do a better job of achieving them than others because we are born talented or with better physical and mental abilities and circumstances.

Other humans will challenge you in life but it is more important to challenge yourself and set worthwhile goals to achieve in your life.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARISMA

charisma1

Charisma: n. a rare personal quality of some leaders who arouse popular intense devotion and enthusiasm and is considered to be a form of very intense human attraction

Today most charismatic leaders who arouse popular intense devotion and enthusiasm have excellent memories, try to be honest, sincere, dependable, are good conversationalists,  are good public speakers, and are trustworthy and frequently show their competence by growing the organization which they are in charge of.

Steve Jobs and Richard Branson are modern day examples of successful charismatic leaders. Historically charismatic leaders were military leaders and rulers who had military success and increased the standard of living for many of their devoted followers.

Historically there were also diabolical charismatic leaders such as Hitler who had a gift for military conquest, public oratory, propaganda, and a glorification of the humans which he led. Ruthless, cruel, and even evil can be words used to describe some historically diabolical charismatic leaders.

Charisma to a large extent depends on whether you are successful in motivating others to share in your vision which frequently has relevance in the lives of the followers and satisfies their needs and wants for status and/or possessions.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SUCCESS

success2

The truth is that you are successful if you make goals and achieve them no matter how small or large the goals may be.

Some derelicts and cancer patients find living another day to be a success and at the other extreme some don’t consider themselves to be successful until they become very wealthy or a celebrity.

Most of us have relatively small successes such as getting a good job, marrying your soul mate, and being able to afford the small pleasures in life which may be pleasant pastimes, hobbies, and good friends.

The two greatest barriers to success is that you don’t have enough natural talent to excel at something you ideally want to achieve or you have many bad habits which cause a string of failures at trying to achieve worthwhile goals. You can’t do much to change an absence of talent but through hard work, determination, self-motivation, and realistic optimism you can almost always improve your lifestyle and make your life more successful.

To become qualitatively more successful set priorities in your life and divide up goal achievement into smaller steps. Achieve some easy goals first to gain some confidence and then try to achieve the harder goals which will take more time, determination, self-motivation, and realistic optimism.

Worthwhile success is infrequently achieved without some failure and some of the greatest successes have come from humans who have failed a thousand times and finally achieve that elusive goal after incredible persistence and determination. Success is infrequently a straight and narrow easy path but one with many unexpected twists and turns which frequently take you momentarily off a straight path to achievement.

If you are realistic in your goal setting then you will have more achievement or successes in your life. Don’t make any pie in the sky goals which have no or very little probability of ever being achieved!!!!!!

If you live the average lifespan for a male or female then you can consider yourself to be a success because many bad addictive behaviors such as drugs and alcoholism, risky living, careless accidents, and unhealthy eating can shorten your lifespan considerably.

Remember, you are a success if you just live to see another day no matter how shitty your life may seem at the moment.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MOTIVATION

motivation-board

Motivation: n. stimulating and/or preventing a behavior(s) with a subset(s) which is frequently done with (the promise of a reward and/or punishment) and/or (a command and/or an encouragement(s)) and/or a threat

Humans and things can motivate our behavior or create desires which make us do things. A desire arises and we either fulfill that desire right away or we delay the fulfillment of the desire until a later time.

A desire to do something or not do something is probably motivated by a reward and/or punishment and ultimately it is a desire to achieve a goal.

Many of us have simple goals such as eating, drinking, working, and enjoying life with pleasant pastimes.

Others also have complex goals such as making much money, starting a business or organization, learning complicated skills for a high paying profession, and writing a best seller.

Staying motivated or maintaining a desire for a long duration trying to achieve complex goals is very hard because it frequently means much sustained hard work, many failures, much support from other humans, and an undying devotion which few are willing to make. Unrelenting self-motivation is necessary to achieve long duration complex goals and it helps if you have talent which makes the achievement much easier.

The success of other humans and ongoing support from family, close friends, teachers, coworkers, coaches, mentors, inspirational leaders, and role models can all be sources of motivation which keeps you trying to achieve important goals even in the face of much hardship and setbacks.

Not frequently mentioned is the importance that emotional motivation plays in successful human relationships and even relationships on the job. Life has many setbacks and if you find a significant other who supports you emotionally when you are struggling with personal or job problems then you are truly being helped or supported. If you reciprocate the emotional support then this can create a symbiotic relationship which will thrive through the good and bad times.

On the job having a boss who cares about maintaining your emotional optimism by appropriate praise, always acknowledging the contribution you make and not stealing it from you, delegating some authority to you, letting you improve your skills on the job, and sometimes saying something good about you in the presence of coworkers can be effective in giving you a sense of purpose on the job. This will make you feel good enough even though you may not be rewarded with as much money as you think that you deserve as a reward.

CONCLUSION:

We have many desires in our lives which motivate us to do good and bad things and our priorities may change in life depending upon the circumstances. That is why it is important to try and find good humans to associate with who motivate us to do good things and not bad things, moral things and not immoral ones.

Learning to prioritize our desires and controlling them successfully is a major key to happiness. Uncontrolled impulsive desires, especially if they are bad, can lead to a life of misery and turmoil so try to change those impulsive bad desires before they ruin a potentially good life.

There are many rewards and punishments in life. If you are smart then you will try to optimize your rewards and minimize the punishments with a realistic appraisal of your abilities so that you don’t crash and burn trying to do the impossible or  desiring what you can’t have.
