“The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
“The secret to success can be found in people’s daily agendas. If they do something intentional to grow every day, they move closer to reaching their potential. If they don’t, their potential slowly slips away over the course of their lifetime.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
“Good people are good because they have come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success.” ~ William Saroyan
“None of those material possessions do anything to make your life any better… I know a lot of people who have a lot of everything, and they’re absolutely the most miserable people in the world. So it won’t do anything for you unless you’re a happy person and can have peace with yourself.” ~ Lenny Kravitz
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” ~ Swami Vivekananda
“I believe success is: Knowing your purpose in life, Growing to your maximum potential, and Sowing seeds that benefit others.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
“No matter if you’re just starting out or if you are at the peak of your career, the more you work in your strength zone, the more successful you will be.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
“To laugh often and much to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others to leave the world a little better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
…And how to move from effectiveness to greatness.
“The successful person has formed the habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do. Successful people don’t like doing them either, necessarily. But their dislike is subordinated by the strength of their purpose.” ~ Stephen Covey, The 8th Habit
What is your life’s biggest success? How many tries did it take you before you reached it? Would you agree that those tries gave you the experience and wisdom you needed to finally succeed?
“You have to go wholeheartedly into anything in order to achieve anything worth having.” ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
