"I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody."

Bill Cosby, Actor and Comedian

How is this quote true? Please give an example of a time where you attempted to please everyone and ended up not pleasing anyone. what did you learn from this experience.?

this qoute is true because you wont always be right at everything and just trying to prove to people that you can do something when you cant is wrong. i think that that key to failure is trying to please everybody is right beacuse take fore example if you try to please somebody else and dont please yourself then your not really getting anything out of it. being succesful is always better then trying to impress someone .

I agree with this quote because you need to do things one at a time if you do more than one thing at a time for sure you won't do any of them corrcetly so it's better if you take time and things right the first time. Iv had an expirecnce before when ityed to be the best with my friends and all they did was complain about it and ilearned that jst cuz they ask for sumthing you shuldnt do it she should have a reasonable explanation and tell them thats my way.=]]

This quote is true, because when someone is in a great place in their life and they're doing their thing, but their environment and people they hang with are not good, the people who are succeeding tend to fall into some bad habits. The successful people will try to help the ones in need around them, but it can affect them too because thepeople who aren't succeeding can bring down the ones who are right along with them. I once tried to give a few people some chocolate because they were mad at me, but they refused. It hurt for me to see them turn down my offer. I learned to never care for anyone who turns down a bar of chocolate. ahh.

I think this quote is true because when you cant do something you end up just not doing it. You dont keep on trying and trying you just give up. I once tryed to please people by doing something and then atlast i didnt do it. And the people that were with me wern't pleased. I Think that when people dont find success they just give up and don't keep on finding or trying to find success. Thats the easy way to do it. People never try to do it the hard way and keep on trying.

well what i think this quote is trying to say is that it is easier to not be successful than to actually be successful. there are more people out there that are not dedicated to school than those that are dedicated to school. in life it is way easier to be a failure because in order to be successful you have to try hard in life and most of the time go to school. these days there are less people dedicated to going to school which means they wont have good jobs in the future.

I think that this quote is very true because you wont always get what you want and so you wont succeed all the time either but you should always try and try again. I can relate to this quote because I usually like baking cakes for my family and I and that come out good but there was this one time that my cake tasted horrible for some odd reason.When it was ready my brother tasted it and he didnt like it at all and that it was so nasty!i was very dissapointed but I knew what my mistake was and so i knew that next time my cake will be much better.

I think this quote is true because sometimes you want to please someone but you dont please them at all. I think that tis is also true because you won't always be right, and if you are wrong you just have to keep on trying.I remember when i once got into an argument with my best friend i tried to please her and say sorry but she never forgave me.

this quote is true becuase if you do to many things at once you wont do them write. so its better if you take them once at one time.then if you try to please someone then you wont please someone else then you wont please your self and everthing goes wrong.

Honestly this quote is really true because everytime we try to have success in something the oppisite(failure) appears. This quote is true in many ways. Like for when I have to do chores when i dont want to and my mom is not home, I have to do them so that i could please her and make her know that i am responsible. But always there is something that i didnt do right or something that wasnt done and i end up failing in which i taught it was a success.

I think the quote is true. An experience I once had was that i was trying to please my family. One day I was trying to find something to eat for breakfast. My m om told me to make pancakes because it was Saturday morning and everyone else was just waking up. So I started to make the pancakes and then prepared other food like eggs and bacon. I was having trouble with the pancakes because they were getting stuck on the pan. Later when everyone woke up my mom said she didn't want any because she didn't like them, my cousins were'nt hungry, and my aunt and uncle ate something else my mom made. So I was trying to make everyone breakfast and nobody wanted anything. So i try to please them and they rejected my pancakes. I learned that I guess everyone should just make their own food or ask first if anyone wants some food.

i agree that this quote is true. I agree that this quote is true because to become successful you don't please anybody.I used tried pleasing my friends by telling them to teach me how to play handball.I got so good in playing handball that i didn't need to please anybody no more. Everyone is on their own when they want to be successful.I learned that if you please everybody you're not going to be succesful.

"I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody."

This quote is true because in many people do try to impress others. I think that when you please others you aren't really pleasing yourself and then that means your not doing anything. Just try to do your best to succesful and do whatever it takes to get there and don't pay attention to others who try to bring you down.

This quote is true because sometimes you want to please others but you end up not pleasing yourself or sometimes you want to please everyone. But the truth is that you will never please everyone because there will always be people who have different opinions about things or may like something different.

I agree with the quote and it reminds me when I tryed to make my friend happy i did what she wanted me to do witch was to hang out with her more often, then my other friends thought i didn't want to hang around with them so i talked to them and hung out with them then my other friend got mad but hay i'm only one person i can't hang out with various groups all at once, then both friends got sad and didn't talk to me for a while days later they were like my best friends again.

This quote is true because pleasing someone doesnt take you no where. When you are pleasing someone all your doing is making that person look better than you. I think that in order to succeed in life you have to please yourself and not anyone else. Something I learned by pleasing someone is that they just take advanage of you and everything goes wrong.

I think this qoute is true because trying to please everyone all the time is impossible and wrong. Sometime when you try to please every one you end up not pleasing anyone. Something i've learned from pleasing someone is that things don't come out the way you want, so don't waste your time.

I agree with this quote because you need to go step by step to reach success. Success isn't just given to you. Failure is an esay key to find. Many people don't want you to be successful. A lot of people want to please others because they want friends or they want to keep close, but you have to be yourself and you shouldn't have to please others. They should accepy you by the way you are.

This quote is true because when you are trying to please others you are only pleasing them and not yourself. They might be pleased but you might not. You can't please everybody because different people expect different things out of you and want you to different things to please them. The key to success is when you do something that you think will help you. You will only be successful when you please yourself.

This quote is true because everyone has a different mind and thinks differently , nobody will ever get to please everyone.Sometimes the key to success is only pleasing yourself ,as long as you agree with what you are doing you will be successfil and happy with what you have done.

this qoute it true because the key to success is to be persistant in everything you have to know what your going to do in life also and to go after your goals in life. i never had an experience but i know what you have to do in order to succed

This quote is very true. It basically means that if you waste all your time trying to please everybody you meet and trying to fit up to their "standards" (which remind you is pretty much impossible to do) you will end up failing. You will end up failing becasue trying to accomplish this impossible task will take away valuable time that you could be using on doing something that you actually want to do and need to do in order to suceed.

its important to be nice.Caring for to many people and taking care of them and their problames cant put you in misery it ruins your chances of success. whenever i think im doing to much for people i ask myself. Is it benefical to me does it support me with my problems. help people and make it come from your heart and give you rself your satisfction

This quote is so real because if you want to be someone sometimes you need to please the one who you want to impress. Say if you are not liking the teacher some times you have to be the teaches pet. I understand what he means because everyone has a diff. way to succeed, like someone who came from nothing and became something or someone who had everything got what they wanted.

The key to failure is trying to please everybody, because it's impossible to please everyone. And if you try to please everybody, then you'll end having so much to do, that you can't please yourself. There was a time when my friends wanted me to join a certain club, but I wanted to join another club. Then I realized that to make yourself happy, you have to follow yourself, instead of relying on other's choices.

This quote is true because people who want to succeed don't please anybody else but themselves and there family, but people who want to fail try to impress other people by acting a fool and not even trying in school so they can make other people fail with them so they wont be the only ones left out. People who succeed actually make other people happy by succeeding in life and go on and actually do something with there lives. People that fail just try to act like a clown and stay home and not do homework those are the people that wont get anywhere in there life. Those people will live a lonely life. People that know the key to success are the ones who will be remembered for there great leadership and more and what they have done for themselves.

the quote is true because you are too busy trying to please everyone that you don't know if you are pleasing yourself.once when i was in the third grade we had to do a project on on country. i knew that everyone liked to play video games so i did my project on japan. i got alot of information and i thought everyone was going to like it. all i talked about was how they make the games. i thought it was very interesting but everyone thought it wasn't cool. that was the last time i tried to please everyone.

I think this quote is true because when you try to please everybody you know that you can't. If you dont please yourself than how do you expect to please everyone else and for everything to go right. It's better o take things slow and succed than trying to do things fast and fail.=D

This quote is tru because you have to be successful because you want it for yourself, not because you want to please everyone else. When you do things, it doesnt affect anyone but yourself so you have to be successful for your your own pleasing! You pretty much have to please just one person in life and that person is you. I havent really been in this situation before because i dont care about pleasing anyone!! but i could really imagine what kind of stress there is to plese everyone and still be successful.This is what i think the quote means.

it is true because when someone fails they dont try to change it and if they pxlease someone else they wont please themselfs yiou wont get nothing out of it and you will fail and wont learn nothing/.

so if you learn something out of it you can be succsesful in life.

this quote is so true because in trying to succeed you have to be yourself, not try to please or suck up to people who really don’t matter. Once I tried to please my friends by trying to change everything that they complained about. This really didn’t work out because I’m pretending to be someone that I’m not. They soon found out that I’m just me and they can’t change that... just be yourself that’s probably the best way to be successful. People will like you more because of that and you will get much respect from peers, teachers, parents, friends, even your boss. So all you have to do is live, laugh, and love..!

This quote is true because if you spend all of your time doing what you do for someone else and not yourself than you will not get anything in return. When you are trying to be your greatest you should'nt go for what people expect from you, but you should live up to what you expect from yourself.Living to others expectations rather than your own you will surely accomplish nothing and get no where.

i think this quote is true because when you try hard to do something and it sometimes leads to failure. i remember when i was little i tried to do my mom a favor. i tried to do laundry and i was only about 7 years old so i really didn't know anything so i put by accident bleach in the washer thinking it was fabric softener and when it came out my mom saw and she was mad at me.

Not everyone is going to like you successeding, which is the reason why you shouldn't please people. Rule # 1 never follow other people's opinions, because chances are they hate you, get over it, you won't change their mind. This situatin once happened to me, I tried hard to impress peers and it I turned out not to do anything, not leaving an Impression. I learned quickly, it's not worth it to make a good apperance, you know yourself and that's all that matters.

This quote is true because when you try to please everyone you are not doing aything for yourself. Your are being someone who others want you to be and not who you really are or would like to be. One time i tried to please someone was when i was younger and i tried to please all my friends and i wanted them to stay with me forever so i always tried to do things to bragg them into staying with me. I learned that they just wanted to be with me because of what i gave them and one day that i didnt have anything to give them they didnt talk to me so i thought that y would i want friends like those and they should like me for who i was and now i talked to them since but i am only myself.

This quote is superrrrrr true! i agree, i think there is no "real key to success", but the key to failure is definitely "trying to please everybody". i think that is the worst thing you can ever do, trying to make everybody else happy can harm you in so many ways, one way is that you will never be happy as yourself if you keep changing yourself. Also, if your focus is helping everyone else, then the one who will end up failing is you. Always focus on your success, your happiness, and your life. Everyone wants to make the world a better place and change everyone to make them better, but we can't. The only way we can make the world a better place is by individually doing your part with yourself.

this quote is true because if you try, or when you try to please everyone you end up confused, disappointed in yourself, and having other people disappointed with you too. a time when i was trying to please everyone would be with my mom and dad. they always seem to have a different opinion about everything, and of course have i try to please both of them, so i wont get in trouble either way. but i end up getting either one of them or both of them angry.

This quote is true because we may not know the key to success but we definetly know the key to failure. its easier to fail than to succeed by ur peers. u may feel challenged to please somebody else when really to succeed the only person u need to please is yourself. if u can please yourself u will succeed and as long as ur pleasing urself everyone else will b pleased as well..if u try pleasing other ppl in the end no one is successful.
