3 Reason for Failure in Business, Life and Relationships Pt 1

February 22, 2011 — Leave a comment

There are three reasons for failure in business, life and relationships. My wife and I have done marriage counseling and family counseling, we’ve taught child training seminars, and worked with many wounded people. I’ve talked to and counseled with business owners and I can say that all failures whether in business or life boil down to these three areas.

Lack of vision, lack of knowledge, lack of persistent action.

These three have been hindering the human race for thousands of years.

1. Lack of vision: 4000 years ago God said, “Where there is no vision my people perish.” When we look at a person who physically has no vision we call them blind. In business if you have no vision then you’re working blind. You’ll stumble around, bump into things, and head off in the wrong direction.

If you don’t know where you’re going than you’ll probably get there.

2. Lack of knowledge: The proverbs say, “He shall die for lack of instruction.” Proverbs 5:23. God told the prophet Hosea, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

“To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.”   Benjamin Disraeli,

In a survey done by Dunn and Bradstreet they stated, “Of the small businesses that fail, 90% do so because of lack of skills and knowledge on the part of the owner”
