    yes, people with talent will never do as well as people with talent who work hard. You could even argue that people with talent won’t do as well as people that work hard too.

      That’s true Ade. Winners are not born so; they make themselves winners in life by charting the paths leading to their goals and aims in life.

      Then there are the C students who go on to start companies and employ the A and B students….

    Zig was one of the most famous motivational speakers – particularly for sales people of all time.

    Being a salesman is not always easy and many people turned to zig for advice.

    I don’t agree that anyone can win simply because they choose to. But if you are going to win, you probably are going to have to put a lot of effort into it and Zig’s motivation can help with that.

      Good information Dave. But at some point I somehow disagree with you. People because the simply choose to, after all you can’t put effort into something you haven’t thought of. Yes, to be a winner you must work harder for it but first you ought to have chosen exactly that.

      Not so, some actors are born into a family of actors and they automatically get their big break by being a family member.

      Some people inherent huge fortunes and they did nothing to earn those fortunes.

      The concepts of success and failure are much more complicated than any of the self help gurus are able to define.

    Og Mandino was also a great motivation writer.

    In addition Dale Carnegie and Les Gibson were great at helping us to understand human nature better.

    There are some cool books out there to learn from. Think and Grow Rich is another.

    1. Joseph

      Thanks Dave for the addition information. I must check on those books.

    2. David

      Sure, no problem at all. There are many other books out there, I think the best one of all time is Zhuan Falun.

      That is the one that is most worth reading. It will change the way you view everything and bring you a greater understanding of how people get to be successful as well as why some just can’t be.

      There are many other things that book will teach as well, it is a real eye opener.

    Plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win and you will end up a winner. I just asked myself – what about losing or failing? Well, it is the same those who plan, prepare and expect to fail do exactly that – they fail.

    Is there anyone who plans or prepares or expects to fail?
