An individual's self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change. A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.
Dr. Joyce Brothers quotes
The real secret of success is enthusiasm.
Walter Chrysler quotes
Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.
Colin Powell quotes
It isn't success if it costs you the companionship and chumminess and love of your children.
B. C. Forbes quotes
Success is sweet and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats.
Amos Bronson Alcott quotes
Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom.
George S. Patton quotes
Genius is only the power of making continuous efforts. The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it: so fine that we are often on the line and do not know it. How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience, would have achieved success. As the tide goes out, so it comes clear in. In business, sometimes, prospects may seem darkest when really they are on the turn. A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success. There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no really insurmountable barrier save our own inherent weakness of purpose.
Elbert Hubbard quotes
The surest hindrance of success is to have too high a standard of refinement in our own minds, or too high an opinion of the judgment of the public. He who is determined not to be satisfied with anything short of perfection will never do anything to please himself or others.
Nothing succeeds like the appearance of success.
Success is more a function of consistent common sense than it is of genius.
