    I personally think every one in the world is talking,writing and teaching or lecturing about success,why not tell us the things which when done would make us failures...what do you think?

      an incorrect diet over 20 years can and does cause on-set type 2 diabetees, do not do it, you will pay the price

      Plenty of people know how to fail on their own, so not much of a need to write a "how to" book

        True, but they don't know why they are failing.  Can't seem to find their way home.

      This is a very interesting idea, I suppose the obvious thing for me would be thinking that taking out a mobile phone when having a drink can sometimes mean that you are in a lot of trouble the next morning. Anyone else had that?

      It's easier to step down! That's called a spontaneous process! So, does someone really need any tutorial?

    How about a Top Ten Failures list?

      2. Not following your instincts - not staying in touch with the inner self.

      A.B. - excellent but Hey! I had #2  lol

      I think having your #2 and 3 = 4!

        My mistake. I meant to write 3, 4, 5. It is a package deal because I represent Being love being peace being free. Thank you.

    6. Gratuitously antagonizing the people around me who may have an influence on my future.

    7. Underestimating the level of effort success requires (i.e., expecting success to be easier than it is).

    8. Accepting long term pain to pay for short term pleasures.

    Why would anyone want to know how to fail...you just have to do nothing and you can be the best there is.. Its only when you do something thing worthwhile that you need to talk about it and may be pass on the knowledge.

    I for one would never want to learn how to fail.. unless of course it does tell me how to rise from the ashes.
