The 5 Proven Paths to Failure

I am up in the mountains an hour from Barcelona with the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation local chapter.  the sun is shining. Yesterday we spent the day on a horse ranch called Hipica Can Vila working with the horses.  Today, we have had a full day with Jordi Vila-Porta, author of the recently published book: “Success” (“¡Exito!”).  He shared some fine thoughts:

The 5 proven paths to failure.

  1. I don’t know what I want
  2. I don’t know what to do
  3. I don’t know how to do it
  4. I don’t believe I can do it
  5. I am not willing to pay the full price (in time, work, effort, discipline)
At what point are you bailing out?
