Everyone has desire to achieve something, to have a good lifestyle. We all set big goals and work hard for them. But not everyone is able to achieve those goals. It's not that everyone who failed has not put in efforts to achieve his goals. Even after committed to the goals and putting in lot of efferts why some people failed? Is it their luck that doesn't help them?

In my opinion, there are two kinds of people born in this world: those who are born genetically predisposed toward success, and those who are born talentless and as compensation, the undaunted determination to strive toward whatever goals they hope to accomplish in their lives. Luck certainly would be a boon to anyone hoping to ever achieve success, though not as much to define what it really takes to accomplish success as the courage to meet any obstacle along the way in the eye. All it takes is time. Something will surely crop up for the better. :)

Hi Friend, Thank you for your comment. I totally agree with you that it is only one's courage to meet any challenge or obstacle along the way which decide success or failure. It's only our patience that make us to leave the efforts in between when we do not realise the fruit of efforts. But I don't agree with you that anyone in this world is born talentless. God has given immense potential to everyone but not everyone is able to make use of it. We all are same but only difference is that some could exploit the talent given to them by god and some couldn't.

You have mentioned the word "LUCK". Well, that indeed is very powerful and often cause people to succeed or fail. You know what? The reality is, LUCK means "Laboring Under Correct Knowledge."

Hi Friend, I appreciate your comment and the new meaning of LUCK. Yes definitely Luck always play a big role but it is not everything.Our own efforts also play important role in deciding our luck and future. People often use luck as a excuse of failure. It's your own effort that make success and luck coming to your doorstep.

Why do we fail? - success or failure? which do you choose?
Often time’s people fail in life because various blocks comes along and stops them from reaching their preferred goal. People fail in life because they disregard the blocks in there and they keep living a discontented life. Normally in order to conquer any life blocks, you need to review the risks to you and your family and the potentially positives which would come out of it.

Hi Friend, Correctly said Friend. These blocks are not hurdles to our goals, but the signals that signalling us to review the approach to our goals. People fail to understand that these blocks are actually smoke signal, helping us in great learning of life. It's very important to see all these blocks as learning points. Thanks Friend

Hello friend, actually achieving our goals there are two tendencies might be happened either success or failure. If we success to achieve our goal we are happy but if we failed we are sad but I think it is not the end of achieving such goal. Make that failure as a challenge to exert more effort to achieve. Those people said failed are those people stopped from that point only... see you around

Thanks Visvas. corretly said. Failure is the pre step towards the success. If you step back after facing the failure then you are stepping back from success. And if you decide to carry on even failing once, then you are stepping towards to the success. So one should always put in efforts for their goals even after failing in the life.

There are two things that cause a person fall in his life: 1. The Pride which make them forget to thanks the God, 2. Hatred among human beings. We as humans have to shy away from both of the above if want to remain in the line of the specified life

Hi Friend, I appreciate your valuable contribution to this discussion. You have given valid point here. Whenever we are in trouble and face hard times, we always think of God. We pray to god, ask him to help us. But once we are out of trouble and everyting becomes fine, we forget about God. We never even say thanks to god for whatever is been given to us by him. This sellfish nature of us make us to feel jealous of others when they achieve more than what we achieved. And that is time when we start declining in life and start hatred towards each others. So Freinds always be thankful to god for all the things he has given us and love all the creation of his

The difference between the successful ones and the ones that fail is those that fail in life gave up. The successful ones never give up. They try their best to be successful in life. Some are even ready to do just about anything to achieve what they want.

Hi Johnmach, Thank you contributing to this discussion. I agree with you John. To be successful in life, it's necessary to face the failure also. Because failure comes in life, not to stop us from being successful but to teach us the lesson of success. That is why All successful people have a list of filures in their life but at last they make it to the point of success.

I think people fail in life because they do not have patience or enthusiasm. Yes, much efforts must be exerted to be able to achieve an assured gaol. Effort is just the product of patience and perseverance. We should be all patient to be able to exert more effort. "Success is not easily won, it requires hard work and sacrifices." That is one of the quotations I know about success. Seeking positive goals in life can lead you to success. Then achieving this will transport you to a great achievement. The best way not to fail again is to be absolutely positive that when you do it this time, you're going to do it right.

Failure in achieving someone's goal might be caused by many reasons as below: 1. Lack of confident 2. Lack of experience. 3. Lack of knowledge 4. Lack of supporters from the employees or the people around. 5. Economic downturns. 6. Lack of financial support 7. Lack of physical healthy and much more unforeseen circumstances. In layman term, the above factors can be assumed as lack of Luck. This is my belief. We must have sufficient resources in order to success. Work hard, equip ourselves well to accept our challenge.

I don't consider life to be entirely black or entirely white. Life is Grey. Hence the question of success or failure does not arise at all. There is nothing that can be called a complete success or complete failure. Everything is relative. So the so called perceived success for an individual, might be failure in comparison with others and the same thing is true for failure. Hence I completely disagree with the statement that human beings fail in life.

Hi dear, The circumstances. If we think everyone's circumstances and his life surroundings and the person himself are contributing to his failure or success. In one family for the parents have 3 children and one become so rich due to his intellect and education he achieved. One person who is a dumb like, has having wealth, but not able to lead a successful life the other one who selected a very notorious way of life and he is wandering and have no value. Here if they try with their surrounding with proper utilisation can make him different. Again, few children brought up with a very poor family could not reach anywhere only as they don't have the capacity to compete the world around. So much of conditions contribute to it. Again, if the world population is only 1/10 of the total population, the situations could have been changed. So, each and everyone's situations are different and we just blame, saying it is luck and all. It is just an escape and nothing more, when we get failed, we need to find fault with someone or something, here it is luck and the like. Some will be ill or sick, some are deprived of mental problems, many are with low money, or more are unaware of what to do. Many with dependents, few are living like kings with all with them. They are not ready to share a single paisa or penny with any one. If we just take out the Swiss bank account money in public which is hoarded by the politicians, could help the people to live so happily for another 10-20 years. Of we could have live without paying the tax. So, find where the problem is and all know where the real issue is, but all are employed. So, they are doing their 'duty' nothing else. If we talk about the subject, there won't be no end to it and also there is no meaning in talking all, just a waste, and those who get it will get and not, not. Thank-s

People can fail in life for many different reasons. some are reasons of bad choices made. some are reasons that can not be controlled. Some people fail in life because they did not try. Not making an effort to succeed is failing before you can start.

People that fail seem to attempt to go beyond themselves to find cause for their failures. After all, its easier to blame someone or something else. I think that success or failure is based upon individual decision. Do I strive to suceeed or should I accept failure? I am sure that for every instance of failure, if one looks deep enough within one will find it is due to a decision one made. I don't think any one individual is 100% successful in all their endevours. Failure is a part of living. It helps us to grow and to learn. The question we need to ask ourselves is, "will we allow ourselves to fail?"

yes that is true that every one set their goals and tried so much hard to achieve those goals but i think that what think basically matters for your success was actually 50 % luck with out you can not do any thing,this is what i think if you want to be successful you have to be lucky and hardworker. happy lotting

It sometimes happen to the people in desiring their dreams with too much effort but the luck of destiny doesnt open to them. In my opinion i better grab to opportunity knocking for me even it is not what i want because if gods well, sooner it will be mine in the right time. In fulfilling our dreams will give us success but mostly it will not come true if we will not experience obstacles in it.
