    The result will take place/You will succeed

    "The result will take place only if you pay attention to all the problems." Is it wrong to say "The result will take place"? Is it better to say "You will succeed if"?

    Re: The result will take place/You will succeed

    "The result will take place" doesn't sound right to me. Yes, it's better to say, "You will succeed if...".
    I am not a teacher.

    not a teacher

    You have given us very little context to work with.
    Based on the evidence we have, "You will succeed if …" is much more natural than the first example.
    You could possibly say: "You will get the result you want if…".
