Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become. Success is steady progress toward one's personal goals. Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.
Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it. Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect. The good news is that the moment you decide that what you know is more important than what you have been taught to believe, you will have shifted gears in your quest for abundance. Success comes from within, not from without.
Success quotes by Elbert Hubbard

Positive anything is better than negative nothing. A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success. How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success. He has achieved success who has worked well, laughed often, and loved much. Pray that success will not come any faster than you are able to endure it. The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it: so fine that we are often on the line and do not know it. No one ever gets far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once a day.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other. Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle. That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well. I will prepare and some day my chance will come.
Mozart, who was buried in a pauper’s grave, was one of the greatest successes we know of, a man who in his early thirties had poured out his inexhaustible gift of music, leaving the world richer because he had passed that way. To leave the world richer—that is the ultimate success. Eleanor Roosevelt
Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourself a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Many of us delude ourselves with the thought that if we could stand in the lot of our more fortunate neighbor, we could live better, happier and more useful lives. . . . It is my experience that unless we can succeed in our present position, we could not succeed in any other.
Success quotes by Margaret Thatcher
Also aboutWork, Perseverance, Result, Inspiration, Achievements, Stereotypes
What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose. You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it. I do not know anyone who has got to the top without hard work. That is the recipe. It will not always get you to the top, but should get you pretty near. People think that at the top there isn't much room. They tend to think of it as an Everest. My message is that there is tons of room at the top.

To turn really interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of disciplines. Now, we are selling over 5 million songs a day now. Isn't that unbelievable? That's 58 songs every second of every minute of every hour of every day. It's not about charisma and personality, it's about results and products and those very bedrock things that are why people at Apple and outside of Apple are getting more excited about the company and what Apple stands for and what its potential is to contribute to the industry.
I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything. Nikola Tesla

Vision without execution is just hallucination. It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste. Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. One of the greatest discoveries a person makes, one of their great surprises, is to find they can do what they were afraid they couldn't do. The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one's destiny to do, and then do it.
Success is 99% failure If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person's point of view and see things from that person's angle as well as from your own. Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necesary to a worthwhile achievement. If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large. The way to learn to do things is to do things. The way to learn a trade is to work at it. Success teaches how to succeed. Begin with the determination to succeed, and the work is half done already. To do more for the world than the world does for you - that is success.
I've never been in love, Nazimova, and I never will be. I take momentary pleasures in bodies presented to me. But when that short-lived pleasure is over, I move on. I prefer to sleep alone. Love! Men who fall in love never succeed in this world. They are mere lovesick fools – nothing more. Howard Hughes

If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success. I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature. Singleness of purpose is one of the chief essentials for success in life, no matter what may be one's aim.
Success quotes by Paulo Coelho
Also aboutInspiration, Ambition, Failure, Dreams, Fear, Life, Perseverance, Achievements, Aim
Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure. I think you can have 10,000 explanations for failure, but no good explanation for success. The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times. Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.

We learned about honesty and integrity - that the truth matters... that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules... and success doesn't count unless you earn it fair and square. Success is only meaningful and enjoyable if it feels like your own. If my future were determined just by my performance on a standardized test, I wouldn't be here. I guarantee you that. Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude.

I hated every minute of training, but I said, "Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion." A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he'll never crow. I have seen the light and I'm crowing. When I won the Golden Gloves in 1960, that made me realize I had a chance. And when I won at the Olympics, that sealed it: I was the champ. What keeps me going is goals.
Well, I think that there's a very thin dividing line between success and failure. And I think if you start a business without financial backing, you're likely to go the wrong side of that dividing line. Money is a poor indicator of success. This may sound like a truism ... But it has to be said: It takes an engaged, motivated, and committed workforce to deliver a first-class product or service and build a successful, sustainable enterprise.
I have always observed that to succeed in the world one should appear like a fool but be wise. The success of most things depends upon knowing how long it will take to succeed. There is no one, says another, whom fortune does not visit once in his life; but when she does not find him ready to receive her, she walks in at the door, and flies out at the window.

Success quotes by Oprah Winfrey

I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the mext moment. The big secret in life is there is no secret. Whatever your goal. You can get there if you're willing to work. Don't worry about becoming successful but work toward being significant and the success will naturally follow. When we hold secrets it creates shame, and shame is a great barrier to success. When you carry the shame you do not allow yourself to fulfill your greatest potential, you do not honour the truth of yourself, you do not honour your highest self. When you let go of the secret, only then you live to your greatest potential.

I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress. The companies that work are the ones that people really care about and have a vision for the world so do something you like. Successfull people always have two things on their lips:
Success is the sole earthly judge of right and wrong. The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence. But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.
