Why You Will Fail To Be Successful

The top 100 actors, the top 100 movies, and the top 100 books will never be known, seen, or read because of the actors and writers inability to market themselves and their ideas to others.

Some people have all the talent in the world, but because they don’t know how to package their skills, they’re never able to make a name for themselves.

If Vincent Van Gogh, Emily Dickinson, or Henry David Thoreau had the ability to market themselves and their ideas, they wouldn’t have had to wait until after they died to become great.

  1. I agree that marketing is a very important and necessary part of branding. Although, I sometimes question the top 100’s true talent. Even though people such as Van Gogh and Emily Dickinson were recognized more after their deaths, the work of these pioneers is eternal and I see them as widely successful because of that timelessness. πŸ™‚ But I see your point of view on being able to sell yourself in order to be successful as well. Great post!

    1. I agree that Vincent’s and Emily’s work was great but because they weren’t able to sell their ideas, they never became well known during their lifetime, which was a shame. It took someone else who could sell to discover their works for them to be known. I question the top talent all the time. There are many bloggers who are better than a lot of the bloggers who get a lot of engagement but it’s not about how good you are, it’s how well you can market yourself. This is why people with less talent will out beat people with more talent. I’m glad you liked it though:)
