Few men have the natural strength to honour a friend's success without envy.
There is but one straight road to success, and that is merit. The man who is successful
is the man who is useful. Capacity never lacks opportunity. It can not remain undiscovered, because it is sought by too many anxious to use it.
Your successes and happiness are forgiven you only if you generously consent to share them.
What we anticipate seldom occurs, what we least expected generally happens.
Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.
Success is counted sweetest by those who ne'er succeed.
I believe that the true road to preeminent success in any line is to
make yourself master of that line.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
There are no limits when you trust yourself.Ē
Think about the most self-confident people you know. What is it that makes them that way?
Self-confident people donít second-guess their capacity to succeed, nor do they wait for others to encourage them.
They trust their own abilities to do what needs to be done.
Stop waiting for others to tell you what you can do. Start putting your faith in your own strengths and
talents. Instead of questioning whether you can reach your goals, move forward with conviction and confidence.
You have incredible gifts. If you allow yourself to follow them, youíll achieve great things. Go ahead.
Follow your abilities. They will lead you upward on a path that is has no limits!
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for,
it is a thing to be achieved.
Success causes us to be more praised than known.
The truth is that all of us attain the greatest success and happiness possible whenever
we use our native capacities to their greatest extent.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing.
Success is a magnet that draws many followers.
Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be
discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that?s where you will find success.
Thomas J. Watson
When a man feels throbbing within him the power to do what he undertakes as well as it can possibly be done, this is happiness, this is success.
Orison Swett Marden
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.
Vincent T. Lombardi
Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or
opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand.
Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.
History records the successes of men with objectives and a sense of direction. Oblivion is
the position of small men overwhelmed by obstacles.
Defeat never comes to any man until he admits it.
If a man write a better book, preach a better sermon, or
make a better mouse-trap than his neighbor, tho' he build his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If A equal success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y and Z, with X being work, Y play, and Z keeping your mouth shut.
