the difference between success and failure is patience and persistence

What is the difference between success and failure?
and why do some people fail to succeed while others manage to do it?

Just as the title says. The difference between success and failure is patience and persistence. The only difference between those who succeed and those who don't is that they remain patient with disregard to their slow progress and continue to be persistent even if they can't see any results.

This quote or saying might not be convincing to you right now and that's why i am going to explain to you in this article how success happens and why patience and persistence are the only personality traits you will need in order to succeed.

Why the difference between success and failure is patience and persistence

So why are patience and persistence the difference between success and failure?
in order to understand this fact you must first know how and why success happens.

Success is all about trial and error. Lets assume that you are a salesman, in order to successfully sell the product to one customer you certainly need to talk to at least 10 customers so that one of them buys it.

Now what if a sales person talked to only three people then gave up? will he succeed? of course he will never succeed unless he remains patient and persistent until he meets the right customer who will make the purchase.

The difference between those who succeed and those who fail is understanding this fact.
Here is why patience and persistence are crucial for success:

  • Why is patience needed for success: Back to the sales person example. If that person didn't become patient even though he is facing rejections he will never come across the right person who was going to buy. There is no such a thing as a lucky person because being lucky is all about continuing to the end until you come across the right opportunity
  • Why is persistence needed for success: Now lets suppose that this sales man became patient and did nothing but kept waiting. In this case he might miss the chance to succeed because he wasn't persistent enough to keep developing his skills even though he is making no sales

If you became patient and persistent you will succeed else you will fail

If you became patient and persistent success will only be a matter of time. If you kept trying to find a job and failed you will eventually succeed if you remained persistent.

If you were trying to create a successful business and kept failing but remained patient and persistent you will eventually succeed as you will encounter the right opportunity.

In my book How i did it i explained how i created 6 unsuccessful websites that never saw the light and the only one that succeeded was 2knowmyself which made me a dot com millionaire!!

Had i not been patient or had i not been persistent i wouldn't have succeed and you wouldn't have been reading this page by now nor you would have ever heard of me.
