Why People Fail (Interview With Siimon Reynolds)

Andrew Roberts Business, Philosophy, Time Management 20 Comments

Siimon Reynolds is an extremely successful business Entrepreneur who has written a book called “Why People Fail.”

His book struck a chord with me and I wanted to drill down at a higher level into 3 of the concepts he outlines.

Even if you are not in business, I know you can take away an enormous amount from this interview.
(We can learn so much from people who have been down the road before us.)

Why Do People Fail?

In the book, Siimon outlines 16 obstacles that often trip people up and offers practical solutions for overcoming them.

In the interview, I wanted to dig down into three areas that really interest me …

1. Poor Self Image

This is such an important topic and Siimon has some great insights about why people have a poor self image and specifically what you can do to improve yours.

2. Daily Rituals

This is an amazing part of the interview and Siimon shares with us how he starts and finishes his day.  I took a page of notes on this answer alone while I was interviewing him, and it’s worth watching for this alone

3. Weak Energy

This is something that Siimon is an expert in.  His tips are amazing when it comes to getting a lot more energy from each day
