I just stumbled upon this cool infographic by Anna Vital, who by the way wouldn’t even know if it wasn’t for Neil Patel (I love how the Internet gives you the opportunity to connect with such cool people), and thought I just had to write another post about success, what it takes to become successful and how many times you should try until you get where you want to be.
Although I have a guide how to create wealth on the blog (which I think is the first thing you should read if you haven’t already), I did not concentrate that much on the statistical side of success in it, simply because I hate statistics LOL.
They’ve have never helped me.
I was born really poor and if I had followed any statistics, I should have had a dumb $5/hour job all my life, cause you know, statistics show you have to have money to make money and I had to bus tables for 4 summers to save $5,000 to start my first business.
I also lost my first business after making a few mills, and when I started online statistics showed my niche was the toughest and I had a little chance of succeeding.
Well, now I own this blog which makes all kinds of money, I run a currency exchange business and I have a few other ventures cooking in the pot (have no idea whether this was the saying LOL, you get the idea).
However, this post and the infographic in it are something different, they show how many times several of the most successful people had tried before they got rich (and a few other cool things).
That’s something I believe is pretty valuable cause let’s face it, you wanna be rich as well… and that’s awesome.
Just by wanting it you are already ahead of those who make peace with whatever life gives them.

Success doesn’t happen overnight, you have to push hard, really hard.
I used to think I wasn’t lucky or anything, but I was very wrong, It is just hard, really really hard.
If you haven’t achieved your goal(s) yet, I advise you to bookmark, or pocket (or whatever you use to save pages) this page and always come to it when you feel like quitting.
It took James Dyson 5,000 + tries to create the vacuum cleaner.
I was so amazed when I read that, I just had to publish the infographic so you could see it.
Although it takes only a second to become successful (go read the article and you will see what I mean), it also takes a lot of tries… and then some more tries.
And to pump the word count to 500 so Google would love the article too (LOL, kidding), I’ll add one more thing here:
Success is not necessarily becoming a millionaire in a year or making $50,000 a month from scratch (although those are pretty cool measures), but defining goals and reaching them.
You can start by making your bed each morning, watch Admiral William H. McRaven’s speech and you will see why.
Thanks for reading, you are awesome!
