Re: Why are some people more successful than others?

Well everyone has their challenges. I guess the 2 main things to have nowadays to be deemed successful would be money and an education. Thanks to the modern day, no one really has an excuse not to get an education so success can lie in that. Money is usually based upon getting that education and then working your way up. Also, having connections with people in certain areas never hurts either. That would be the general idea anyway. It really depends on how you define "successful"

Re: Why are some people more successful than others?

A while back I read a book that answered that very question. Although there are quite a few things that depend on our own efforts, there is also luck that we should not forget. I would say that some people are more successful than others because they are more lucky?!

Re: Why are some people more successful than others?

I think luck is a small part of it, and all successful people go through set backs. I've read a quote this morning (not sure who came up with it), which I thought was very true (and I apologize for the language):
"Success is like getting pregnant -- everyone congratulates you but they have no idea how many times you got f%cked"

I think it has to do more with personality but i could be dead wrong

Re: Why are some people more successful than others?

It's either a matter of luck, or some people just grab opportunities which eventually make them more succesful. But either way, it's always about hardwork.

Re: Why are some people more successful than others?

They have a lot of determination and will power. Successful people always put themselves in a position to capitalize on new opportunities, they are not afraid to fail. They have a lot of confidence and are self motivated to achieve their goals. They are usually more positive about things instead of always seeing the negative in everything.
