5 Good Success Quotes


Here’s a few success quotes I stumbled upon recently:

The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. -Eleanor Roosevelt

There are no secrets to success: Don’t waste time looking for them.  Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty to those for whom you work, and persistence. -Colin Powell

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles that one has overcome while trying to succeed. -Booker T. Washington

I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed.  And the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep trying! -Tom Hopkins

There is more in us than we know.  If we can be made to see it, perhaps, for the rest of our lives, we will be unwilling to settle for less. -Kurt Hahn

  6. These are wonderful quotes Shawn, I really enjoyed reading them.
    To be successful in life I believe is determined by how much love you have to share with your family friends and people in need. How you interact in your relationship with people. It is doing the best we can with what we have. To maintain success you need to keep a positive attitude towards life. Successful people are willing to learn about life and what revolves around them. You need to be honest, compassionate and understanding.

    Here are some quotes I would like to share

    I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.
    Mother Teresa

    Robert F. Kennedy
    Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us canwork to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all thoseacts will be written the history of this generation.

    Robert Louis Stevenson
    Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.

    Helen Keller
    Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.

    Theodore Roosevelt
    It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

    Charles Lindbergh
    Success is not measured by what a man accomplishes, but by the opposition he has encountered and the courage with which he has maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.

I’ll go check shortly. Thanks, though! Be ready for a long email…. 🙂

  7. “Success is not a goal but a consequence of the hard work you put in”.

    Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic
    fundamentals … Success is not measured by what a person accomplishes, ….
    The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, … but if you
    love what you’re doing and you always put the customer first, success will be yours …

  9. When you set success goals, you have already placed a limit on yourself. Think of success as a journey with no limits, no boundaries and no end to what is possible.
