Requisites For Success

How does one achieve success? Whatever you say about success and however you define success, no one will succeed unless he is ready to face and overcome difficulties, and prepared to assume responsibilities.

The successful person is not only goal-directed; he chooses the right goal to pursue in the first place. - Unknown

There are those who travel and those who are going somewhere. They are different and yet they are the same. The success has this over his rivals: he knows where he is going. - Mark Caine

Do not be not afraid to fail

Successful people are not afraid to fail. They have the ability to accept their failures and continue on, knowing that failure is a natural consequence of trying. The law of failure is one of the most powerful of all the success laws because you only really fail when you quit trying. - Unknown

The men who have done big things are those who were not afraid to attempt big things, who were not afraid to risk failure in order to gain success. - B. C. Forbes

No man ever achieved worth-while success who did not, at one time or other, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure. - Napoleon Hill

The guy who takes a chance, who walks the line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid of failure, will succeed. - Gordon Parks

Do what you enjoy doing

Work Hard

A successful person is one who went ahead and did the thing the rest of us never quite got around to. - Unknown

Do not give up

Most people give up just when they're about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown. - H. Ross Perot

When you feel like giving up, hold on just a little longer. Many a times, success come to those who held on a little longer. - Unknown

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. - Thomas Edison
