The Only Thing You Need To Know To Be Successful

We all want success. We dream of it, we wish for it, we hope for it. But so many of us get hung up on things that hold us back from achieving our success.

Being truly successful means something different to everyone. We all have different goals and dreams and your success may not look like someone else’s success.

That is the beauty of life, we can define success in our own terms.

No matter what your definition of success is, there are going to be obstacles in your way to achieving it. There are going to be things that make you feel like you aren’t successful or that you will never achieve it.


People make success seem hard and difficult to accomplish, when it is actually very simple. There is only one thing you need to know in order to be successful.

That one thing you must realize is that there is no failure.

Once you realize this, you can see that the only inevitable outcome is success. If there is no failure, you are automatically a success.

The Only Thing You Need Know To Be Successful

Remove Failure from Your Vocabulary

The word “failure” does not exist for you anymore. You should never say, “I failed at this,” or “I am a failure.” If you believe that you cannot fail, these statements simply become untrue.

This is not to say that there won’t be times where you feel down or when something doesn’t work out. But these are not failures, my friend. These are simply the experiences that we must go through in order to reach our success.


You have the power to decide for yourself if you will be successful or not. You merely have to choose to believe that there is no failure.

Learn from Everything

There will be things that happen that don’t turn out how you want or that may be seen as “failures.” Learn to look at these moments as opportunities to learn something new.

You are not failing, you are just learning how to not do something. By learning this, you can take action to move forward and do what you need to do to accomplish your goals.

If you have a mindset of continually learning, there is no way that you can fail. You are constantly trying new things, learning what works and what doesn’t and correcting your course based on those lessons.

Every moment in life can teach you something, no matter what it is. The little “failures” that you go through can not only teach you about business or life, but also about yourself. They can teach you how to better react in situations or how to be more present in the moment.


Opening yourself up to learning all of the things that you can be taught through your “failures” will set you on a path where the only outcome is success.

Keep Moving Forward

Once you believe that you cannot fail and you are committed to being successful no matter what, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be setbacks.

There will be times when you feel knocked down or you feel like you are too far from achieving your dreams. But do not let this discourage you, all you need to do to be successful is to keep moving forward.

Keep taking the actions that need to be taken and finding the next steps towards reaching your goals. And just keep doing that.

As long as you are moving forward and never quitting, you are successful. You will achieve success because you will keep moving towards it.

Persistence is Key

Without persistence, you cannot achieve anything that you set out to do. This goes along with moving forward. As long as you are willing to be persistent and keep going, you cannot fail.

Having the dedication to be persistent with something is not easy. In fact, most people are not willing to accept that commitment and they end up not achieving their dreams.

But you are different, you are committed to being persistent. You know that the only way to achieve something is by putting in the work, day in and day out. Consistent effort over a period of time will generate results. This is guaranteed.

You may need to correct your path from time to time or change your focus based on what you learn, but if you are persistent, success will come easily to you.

Although it seems hard sometimes, remind yourself that success is inevitable if you accept that failure doesn’t exist.

Learn to look at “failures” not as stumbling blocks, but as stepping stones helping you get closer to your goals. Be persistent and keep moving forward and you cannot fail. I believe in you. Now you need to believe in yourself and go become insanely successful.
