The Trap of Fixation on
Success is nearly a magical idea for most
people. In his Book The Active Life, Parker Palmer points out that
in the West fixation of people on success discourages them from risk
taking "because it values success over learning,
and it abhors
whether we learn from it or not. It always wants to win but win or lose, it
inhibits our learning. If we win, we think we know it all and have nothing
more to learn. If we lose, we feel so defeated that learning is a hollow
consolation... It traps us in a system of praise or blame, credit or shame,
a system that gives primacy to goals and external evaluations, devalues the
gift of self-knowledge, and diminishes our capacity to take risks that may

"Every successful enterprise requires three men a
businessman, and a son-of-a-bitch."
~ Peter McArthur
99 percent of businesses started by people lacking business experience fail
within the first two or three years. However, 80 percent of businesses started

their products and their services. They know
how to negotiate with their suppliers. They know how to raise money. They
know how to negotiate leases. They know how to
sell and to
achieve lasting customer success. They know how
to manage their finances. In other words, experience is the key. In order to

Inevitable Success'. On the first day of class, Zander tells his first year
students that they all get an A. There is only one condition. Their first
assignment is to write a letter to him - dated on the last day of class -
explaining why they deserved the highest grade.
Zander believes there are several beneficial aspects of this dramatic role
It is a great
confidence builder for his students.
It eliminates the often counterproductive sniping that people frequently
engage in when they think only a few will win.
Students invariably knock themselves out for that A because they do more
to earn their own personal A than they would ever do for the traditional
A given by a teacher.7
