What Kind Of People Will Not Succeed In Life?

Question on @Quora: What kind of people will not succeed in life? https://www.quora.com/What-kind-of-people-will-not-succeed-in-life?ch=99&share=46dd8192&srid=04AWl

Found this question on Quora. Here’s my response. The people that don’t succeed in life are those that moan, groan and complain about everything. Instead of them being part of the solution they are apart of the problem. Being a problem solver is one thing that is key in life. Everyday we are running into roadblocks and stumbling blocks that we have to figure out how to find a way over, around or through a particular situation. You can’t move forward in life by always getting frustrated and having the mindset of you need to be placed in the right situation to reach you full potential. Alot of times we have the free control to create situations that we can succeed in and for others to prosper as well. You can’t be at your best if you are always making excuses for why things are worst. People have to stop waiting on someone to do for them what they can do for themselves.

You have ceased every opportunity that you are given because for some if not most people opportunities don’t come that often unless you create them for yourself. There’s is a level of belief, faith, hope and patience that go into being successful. But don’t ever forget about the level of work that you have to put forth. Most people want stuff and things but when it comes to laying that ground work very little people are will to stay and see it through. But yeah that’s my opinion and take on it.


Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
