“All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.” ~ Mark Twain
“The toughest thing about success is that you’ve got to keep on being a success. Talent is only a starting point in this business. You’ve got to keep on working that talent. Someday I’ll reach for it and it won’t be there.” ~ Irving Berlin
“When I was younger I thought success was something different. I thought, ” When I grow up, I want to be famous. I want to be a star. I want to be in movies. When I grow up I want to see the world, drive nice cars. I want to have groupies.” But my idea of success is different today. For me, the most important thing in your life is to live your life with integrity and not to give into peer pressure, to try to be something that you’re not. To live your life as an honest and compassionate person. To contribute in some way.” ~ Ellen DeGeneres
“There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.” ~ Christopher Morley
“What’s money? 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
“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” ~ Bill Cosby
“The leaders we revere and the businesses that last are generally not the result of a narrow pursuit of popularity or personal advancement, but of devotion to some bigger purpose. That’s the hallmark of real success. The other trapping of success might be the by product of this larger mission, but it can’t be the central thing.” ~ Barack Obama
“I’ve come to embrace the notion that I haven’t done enough in my life. I’ve come to confirm that one’s title, even a title like president of the United States, says very little about how well one’s life has been led. No matter how much you’ve done or how successful you’ve been, there’s always more to do, always more to learn, and always more to achieve.” ~ Barack Obama
“If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.” ~ Anna Quindlen
“To follow, without halt, one aim: There’s the secret of success.” ~ Anna Pavlova
“If A is success in life, then A equals X plus Y plus Z. Work is X; Y is play; and Z is keeping your mouth shut.” ~ Albert Einstein
“If you feel that your life is going nowhere, check out the friends you hang out with.” ~ Anonymous
“There is no such thing as a ‘self-made’ man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.” ~ George Burton Adams
“The biggest rewards in life are found outside your comfort zone. Live with it. Fear and risk are prerequisites if you want to enjoy a life of success and adventure.” ~ Jack Canfield
“It always came back to my original belief of having passion. You can’t just generate passion; you’ve really got to have it from the beginning. You need to believe in yourself and in your projects. Very early in your career you need to shoot things that you believe in, things that you really want to shoot [photography]. You need to take risks. Don’t wait for the phone to ring. Success is only going to happen if you are out there really working to make it happen.” ~ Eric Meola
