Success

“He who hopes to avoid all failure and misfortune is trying to live in a fairyland; the wise man realistically accepts failures as a part of life and builds a philosophy to meet them and make the most of them.  He lives on the principle of ‘nothing attempted, nothing gained’ and is resolved that if he fails he is going to fail while trying to succeed.” ~ Wilfred Peterson, The Art of Living

“No one ever achieved a goal by being interested in its achievement.  One must be committed.  In fact, in studying the source of people’s success, I’ve found that persistence overshadows even talent as the most valued and effective resource in creating and shaping the quality of life. Most people give up a maddening five feet from their goal!” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

“The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill.  I will not be outworked.  Period.  You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me; you might be all of those things – you got it on me in nine categories.  But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m gonna die.  It’s really that simple, right? … You’re not going to outwork me.” ~ Will Smith

“I see far too many people in America chasing after a college diploma simply because it is expected of them. In this country, it is viewed as a minimum requirement everyone should have. In my mind, it is wrong to think that is all you need to succeed. There are too many lost souls out there with college degrees, not knowing where to go next.  Many young people today are getting a promise in the beginning that you need to have a college degree, and then no one is sure what to do with it. This degree may serve as a valuable foundation of knowledge, but it is much more important to understand your talents and interests.” ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Today, financial capital is no longer the key asset. It is human capital. Success is no longer about economic competence as the main leverage. It is about emotional intelligence. It is no longer about controls. It is about collaboration. It is no longer about hierarchies. It is about leading through networks. It is no longer about aligning people through structures and spreadsheets.  It is about aligning them through meaning and purpose. It is no longer about developing followers. It is about developing leaders.” ~ Darren Hardy
