Quotations on Success - Free Inspirational Quotes

Success quotes - what they say...

Success leaves clues, so they say, and here are some of the clues...

"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm."

-- Winston Churchill

"Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds."

-- Orison Swett Marden

"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do."

-- Bob Dylan

"Effective people are not problem-minded; they're opportunity minded. They feed opportunities and starve problems."

-- Dr. Stephen Covey

"You're not a failure if you don't make it. You're a success because you tried."

-- Susan Jeffers

(And it's this type of attitude that's at the heart of overcoming fear of failure.)

"Make each day useful and cheerful and prove that you know the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be happy, old age without regret and life a beautiful success."

-- Louisa May Alcott

"Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing."

-- Dr. Denis Waitley

"The act of taking the first step is what separates the winners from the losers."

-- Brian Tracy

"Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well."

-- Jim Rohn

"When you get right down to the root of the meaning of the word 'succeed', you find it simply means to follow through."

-- F.W. Nichol

Success quotes - what they still say...

MORE success quotes (if you really insist), but first a little 'success quote' a la YouTube...

"Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person we become."
-- Jim Rohn

"Your belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe."

-- Mark Victor Hansen

"People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing."

-- Dale Carnegie

(And, lest we forget, fun IS the whole point of our personal development - isn't it?)

"Who said it could not be done? And tell me what great victories does he have to his credit which qualifies him to judge what can and can't be accomplished."

-- Napoleon Hill

"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of hard work, preparation, and learning from failure."

-- General Colin Powell

"If you don't first handle fear and desire, and you get rich, you'll only be a highpay slave."

-- Robert Kiyosaki

"Success is blocked by concentrating on it and planning for it... Success is shy - it won't come out while you're watching."

-- Tennessee Williams

"The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work."

-- Oprah Winfrey

(Whatever your goal? How are you with setting goals, by the way!)

"Most people fail in life because they major in minor things."

-- Anthony Robbins

"Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, 'What's in it for me?'"

-- Brian Tracy

"A pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. An optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty."

-- Winston Churchill

"The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary."

-- Donald Kendall
