You have heard it all before, and I know this subject has been talked about to death. “Why people don’t succeed” has been translated by many successful people over the decades. Everyone has their own interpretation of what success is, and many more have answers to why they have succeeded.
Despite what others might say to you, success doesn’t come easy. It is not given to lucky people. It is not given to those with money, and it is most definitely NOT given to those who dream it.
Success takes work.
Why people don’t succeed is because they fail to work for it. It looks easy from the outside, but those who have succeeded rolled up their sleeves and grabbed a shovel. They toiled away in the trenches to create their accomplishments.
Success means hands full of blisters, body aches, and sleepless nights. They worked for it. Every successful person you have met or read about did it with hard work.
It’s that simple. Success takes work.

Success also requires you to cut out the noise.
When you put the work in, others will take notice. There will be remarks, ideas, judgements, notions, advice, laughter, or pessimism. Some of what’s being said will come from people who are jealous of you.
Others will stay because they truly support you and your quest for success. You need to decide what is noise and what is not. If you truly believe in what you are doing, the noise needs to be ignored. More hard work is needed to drown it out.
Understand that success is what you make of it.
It’s different for everybody. The beauty of success is that it can be strictly yours. No one can tell you differently. That’s why working hard and cutting out the noise is so important.
It is firmly up to you to figure out what success means for you. But it needs to be said again: success requires work.
