Review

This is a book on success disguised as a book on failure. A little like real life. Straightforward, clear, and actionable.
Seth Godin, author, Poke the Box

Why People Fail is a wonderful gem of a book. Reynolds hasdone all of us an extraordinary service by reading and listeningto everything there is on self–improvement, testing it in his life, discovering what works, and then pulling it all together for us to use. It is a stunning collection of practical tips, proven techniques, and useful advice on how to make your life more meaningful and fulfilling. Buy this book and put it to use today, and tomorrow you′ll be on your way to turning your failures into successes.
Jim Kouzes, bestselling author, The Leadership Challenge and Credibility, and The Dean′s Executive Fellow of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University

Reynolds has done it again! In Why People Fail, the successful entrepreneur and internationally–recognized expert on achievement shows business leaders, educators, coaches, and anyone who′s struggled to succeed, how to incorporate a handful of simple ideas into a powerful plan for triumph.
Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author, MOJO and What Got You Here Won′t Get You There

From the Inside Flap

Success is often just a moment a goal fulfilled, soon to be replaced with new goals. But failure is the ambitious person′s constant companion, often dogging us for months, years or even decades before we finally reach our aim.

Siimon Reynolds transformed himself from a directionless twenty–something (in his own words, "one of the most disorganized people I′ve ever known") into the founder of one of the largest marketing services firms in the world by identifying the habits that lead people down the wrong path and then by consciously avoiding them. In Why People Fail, he draws on that experience to explore the main causes of failure and presents proven strategies and tips for defeating the sixteen most common behaviors that lead to failure such as destructive thinking, low productivity, not asking the right questions, holding on to a fixed mindset, not following daily rituals, and more. Surprising, entertaining, and inspiring, Why People Fail will you help you drop the behaviors that hold you back and reach your full potential for success in your professional and personal life.
