Original Article : The Difference Between Success and Failure Comes down to 1 Simple Question—and It’s Not What You Think!

The cliché in entrepreneurship and business is this: “The difference between success and failure comes down to how bad you want it.”
That’s not true.
You could want something really, really badly and still not get it. Conversely, you could be in the right place at the right time and have “success” fall right into your lap. Work ethic certainly shouldn’t be discounted, but the truth is, pure hours-in does not necessarily mean rewards-out. As much as people want to believe they are 100% correlated, they are not. There is a fair amount of strategic thinking that has to accompany those long hours spent slaving away.
The difference between success and failure then, as with any pursuit, comes down to a very different question—and the question is hard to answer, which is why so few people take the time to consider it. They would rather just put their head down and grind, than pick their head up and question where they were headed in the first place.
