The Lesson: If you’ve ever related to the phrase “nice guys finish last”, then Robin Sharma has some encouragement and lessons for good people who feel like they’re failing. From making your faith in winning larger than your fear of failing to shifting your focus from blaming to growing – here are five reasons why good people fail and how they can overcome those obstacles.

Notable Excerpt: “Look, every great hero was broken. If you were to study Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, Shakespeare and Tolstoy; if you look at any great artist – a Picasso or a Jean-Michel Basquiat … they all out-suffered the majority. And what I’m suggesting to you is that pain can be transformed into power and that’s why good people often lose.”
