    ...then you're already a failure.

    We see guys complaining about the competition is too tough... folks saying that the algorythim changes are killing them... people saying that this or that is stopping them from making a living in IM.

    We make our own way in life and force our own consequences from our actions 99% of the time.

    We are not managed by others as to results of our actions 99% of the time.

    We succeed based on effort, ingenuity, knowledge, versatility, the ability to adapt and other internal processes 99% of the time.

    We fail based on effort, ingenuity, knowledge, versatility, the ability to adapt and other internal processes 99% of the time.

    It is our choice to succeed or to fail 99% of the time.

    It is our choice to not allow another to dictate our success.

    If you are one that is allowing someone else to dictate your success, you need to change your mindset and man up... make the adjustments in your thought process and make the adjustments in your backbone and become a successful person.

    Start making the choice to succeed and once you succeed you'll be able to succeed even more as you'll now what it takes to succeed and how to succeed.

    One win will morph into 2 wins and 2 will morph into 4... you'll ride that success wave once you get that first trophy on your shelf.

    Remember, Nothing succeeds like success.

    I don't get it - How can you let someone else dictate your success?

    The way I see it is - if someone else can do it, I can too. If no one else has done it, I'll be the first one to do it.

    Plus, success is a relative term. To a poor man and to a rich man, success mean totally different things. Example, A poor man will feel successful if he's able to feed his whole family, but to a rich man that's given. The first thing we need to figure out is what success means to us.
