To be ambitious for wealth, and yet always expecting to be poor; to be always doubting your ability to get what you long for, is like trying to reach east by traveling west.

No matter how hard you work for success, if your thought is saturated with the fear of failure, it will kill your efforts, neutralize your endeavors and make success impossible. Charles Baudouin Quote Details

If you want to achieve your highest aspirations and overcome your greatest challenges, identify and apply the principle or natural law that governs the results you seek.

Stephen Covey Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

Don't aim at success - the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one's dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long run - in the long run, I say! - success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it. Viktor Frankl Quote Details

More quotes about:

A success is anyone who is doing deliberately a predetermined job because that's what he decided to do, deliberately. Earl Nightingale Quote Details

Success is not the result of making money. Making money is the result of success. And success is in direct proportion to our service. Earl Nightingale Quote Details

More quotes about:

You can actually develop a "positive addiction" to endorphins and to the feeling of enhanced clarity, confidence, and competence that they trigger. When you develop this addiction, you will, at an unconscious level, begin to organize your life in such a way that you are continually starting and completing ever more important tasks and projects. You will actually become addicted, in a very positive sense, to success and contribution. Brian Tracy Quote Details

More quotes about:

Being passionate about something is the key to success. But using that passion to help others is the key to happiness. Arnold Schwarzenegger Quote Details

More quotes about:

The biggest enemies we have to overcome on the road to success are not a lack of ability and a lack of opportunity but fears of failure and rejection and the doubts that they trigger. Brian Tracy Quote Details

More quotes about:

In order to succeed in life, you have to make two decisions. First, you must decide what you really want.

Desire must be all the reason you need. Secondly, you must decide that you and you alone will make it happen no matter what. Steve Pavlina Quote Details

When you decide to be successful in a big way, it means you acknowledge the price and you're willing to pay it. That price might be sacrificing your personal life to get good grades in school, pursuing a college major that is deadly boring but lucrative, putting off having kids, missing time with your family, or taking business risks that put you in jeopardy for embarrassment, divorce, or bankruptcy. Successful people don't wish for success; they decide to pursue it. Scott Adams Quote Details
