John Chow and Why I Won't Succeed

If you don't already know, I'm a fan of John Chow and his blog. Not only is he famous for making money from his blog, he is also an inspiration to many people...including of course, me.

In his latest post, John talked about "The Biggest Problem Standing Between You and Success." My first reaction when I started reading his post was, "Oh No. Not another, it's all your fault lecture."

What I learned was, it really is my fault. It took John Chow to actually get me to see that, unless I start looking at things differently, I won't succeed. I won't be where I want to be in my life. And I don't want that. I want to reach my goals in life. Not just financially, but every part of my life.

After reading John's post, I also took a look at the comments other readers left for him. Some disagreed while others agreed and even added their own thoughts on why many of us are not able to succeed. One comment that stood out was from a blogger named, Steven Truong. In his comment he mentioned that while most people are motivated, they are too lazy to do what is necessary to succeed.

Is he right? In my opinion, I think so to some level. While not everyone will agree, I believe that John Chow's post, "The Biggest Problem Standing Between You and Success," is definitely worth the time to check out.

A Quick Update: There is a great interview video that Steven Truong did with John Chow. He left the link for us in comments, but unfortunately the full link didn't show. Luckily we're all smart enough to just click on Steven's site and search for that great video.

But, to make things easier, here's the link: John Chow Video Interview at Affiliate Summit West

Please be sure to leave a comment for Steven and thank him for the great interview/video!
