Many people are seeking the key to success. On the other hand, there are quite a few con artist type people, who like hawkers at a carnival, are peddling their (next to worthless) books, audio and video recordings, etc. to the poor saps that think there is, in fact, a key to success.

The key to success is found in the avoidance of the key to failure.
Now, I suppose you are thinking, “Duh, that is obvious.” However, you need to know what is really meant by ‘the key to failure’ in order to avoid said key. I can help you with that in the very next sentence, if you continue to read.
It was Bill Cosby who said “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”
There you have it. Brilliant, eh?
Oh, you want a bit more elaboration on that? Oh, alright then; go on over to read Avoiding Failure: 7 Tips NOT to Try to Please Everybody, courtesy of Life Optimizer, a blog about living your life to the fullest.
