Quotes on Success
Success Principles and Rules for Success from Great Minds of Various Kinds
Through the years I have become a collector of quotes on success, because that is one of my favorite areas and I truly enjoy learning from other people. I find them especially useful when explaining a concept or clarifying an idea to somebody else.
As this site progresses, new quotes for success will be included. Please enjoy!
"Action is the foundational key to all success."
"Success is not final,
failure is not fatal:
It is the courage to
continue that counts."
"Success is not the key to happiness.
Happiness is the key to success.
If you love what you are doing,
you will be successful."
"Material success may result in the accumulation of possessions; but only spiritual success will enable you to enjoy them."
Of all quotes, this one sums up so many aspects (all?) in a few words:
"Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle with difficulties and overcome them. Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
(Wayne W. Dyer)
"Try not to become a man of success but a man of value."
"Anybody cannot be successful, but a successful person can come from anywhere."
(Paraphrase of a famous quote from the movie "Ratatoille". Yes, you can get great quotes on success from unexpected sources!)
Here is another magnificent quote. I got it from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, who is a great source of wisdom and inspiration in my life. Little by little, I will most likely add more quotes on success from this brilliant motivator.
"The Final Analysis
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, she said, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
You see, she said, in the final analysis, it´s all between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway..."
"To be successful you do not have to do unusual things, just do the usual things unusually good!"
I had many quotes on success from Michael Jordan to choose from. This one really is full of insight and wisdom. And I love to place Mother Teresa and Michael Jordan next to each other. Proves that any kind of success is about attitude more than anything else...
"I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. 26 times I have been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed."
"There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way."
"Personal leadership is the quiet determining factor of all success. You must personally lead you to success... everyday."
"Success is simply the result of a consistent application of purposeful basic principles."
"How to succeed? Try hard enough."
"Successful people do all the things unsuccessful people don´t want to do."
(John Paul DeJoria)
"If you don´t think today is a good day, just try missing one."
