Successful people realise that they reached their goals by continuously correcting. We get off course, correct, and get back on course. Ships do it. Rockets and missiles do it. Correct. Correct. Correct
Success can be dangerous; it can breed arrogance. Sometimes it is better to fail. Failure fosters humility, and humility will win you more points with people than arrogance.
The world is as it is, irrespective of what we think of it. The one who can succeed is not the person who complains about the changing world, but the one who can rise above its problems.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Desire is the key to motivation, but it is the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.
We all live and work in some kind of community. Part of the secret of success is knowing the strengths and weaknesses of others and where our moral credit stands with those on whose support we depend.
Success can also cause misery. The trick is not to be surprised when you discover it does not bring you all the happiness and answers you thought it would.
If you want to leap further, you have to back-step further for the jump. The back-steps represent the necessary preparation you make in life for your success.
Knowledge is knowing about something; know-how is knowing how to do something. Knowledge is information; know-how is technique. You need both for the success system that never fails.
Success in our calling is the result of a person’s love of and belief in the work he has undertaken. Earnest and conscientious labor often accomplishes more in the end than brilliant genius.
