Words of wisdom: Success

The great successful men of the world have used their imagination.  They think ahead and create their mental picture in all its details, filling in here, adding a little there, altering this a bit and that a bit, but steadily building - steadily building.

Success does not consist in never making blunders, but in never making the same one a second time.

If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius. 

The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year.

The toughest thing about success is that you've got to keep on being a success.

Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand.

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.

For success, attitude is equally as important as ability.

Success is simple. Do what's right, the right way, at the right time.

Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.

Every success is built on the ability to do better than good enough.

Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.

Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.

Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.

Success will not lower its standard to us. We must raise our standard to success.

The best way to succeed in this world is to act on the advice you give to others.
