Projects fail for several reasons:
1- The project should never have been started in the first place,
2- The project never had executive support
3- The project was not planned and executed well
4- The project team (if there ever was a team and not just a group) was not capable of the task
5- The scope was illogical or unreasonable--perhaps constantly shifting
6- Stakeholders were not conducive to change

Many projects fail because they are failures driven away from success. BTW, there are many projects that fail as well, using PMI principles and practices, and they fail because the project sponsor, leader, and team do not know how to be flexible in applying those principles to the reality of the situation. Just using PMI principles and practices is no guarantee of success.

Yes, most of the projects fails due to lack of project management knowledge/process gap.
different projects/organisations do follow different strategies to make it success.
Sample: Identify the project management process which can be performed in project. List the tools & techniques which would support processes and can be utilized, then prepare the plan for individual process based on project and organisation model.

Some projects should fail.
A project manager should try to make his project succeed, but if a project is going to fail, a project manager should identify that as soon as possible.

Wade: you make an excellent point here. I have seen many projects simply dragging on in the hope that they might succeed, yet it is visibly obvious they have already failed, and need to be closed out.

very nice explanations regarding the fair project, what are the main point for success project. the second part of Question is "how we make our project 100% success?"
Scope, time, quality, stakeholder, risk are the main consideration by the project manager to do the ensure success of the project.

I recently wrote a blog that partially addresses this topic and questions whether a failed project can be realiably predicted. Feel free to give it a read:

Tailoring and applying project management processes is important for every project. Every project and every organization cannot have all the processes. So, it is important to pick/tweak the processes based on project objectives and suitable for organization culture.
With preparing realistic plan and schedule, proper monitoring of project progress, taking corrective actions, managing changes and risks, engaging stakeholders could help you to be more closer to success.
