With the multitude of quotes on success spoken by many people, what quotes have made the most impact on your life?
Our mentor, Bob Proctor, always gave the quote on success as:
"The progressive realization of a worthy goal." - Earl Nightingale.
"What is the meaning of success?" The dictionary defines success as "the attainment of a favorable outcome." I believe that success encompasses a broad range of favorable outcomes. Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich went as far to say that success is the collection of the 12 great riches of life.
With the definition of success in mind, Napoleon Hill's quote...
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
...is my all time favorite quote on success. He lays out the hope of achievement in that short sentence.
Your thoughts have a direct relationship to your results. Right now, things may seem impossible or too difficult. But, there's no free lunch in our world. We pay a price to get what we want or, we pay the price by doing nothing and get the same results.
Often times, it's about having a millionaire mindset, that lays the foundation to get what you want. Without having a great foundation, no amount of tips and tricks or positive thinking will create whatever you want to manifest.
I've learned that if your mind can think it, then there IS a way to accomplish it. There is just a certain way of thinking and acting to get what it is we want. The trick is to learn to adopt the way of thinking of acting to actually get it. (A shortcut is to copy the people who have what you want.)
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
- Chinese Proverb
Any step. A small or a big step. Taking action towards your goal is what is going to help you get it. All that we desire doesn't just land on our doorstep because we thought and focused it into existence.
Too often when we set goals, we choose things that our parents, spouse, or friends want us to do. We grow up with other people's expectations in mind; we lost sight of what it is we really want. Take a moment to really discover and know yourself, so you can learn how to be happy, peaceful, and successful according to what is important to you.
Do or do not, there is no try.
Who knew we could learn so much from a Jedi Master?
When you say you are going to try, you give yourself the option to back out. There is no commitment. If you say you're going to do something, do it. If it doesn't work out, don't beat yourself up over it. Just keep learning from your actions, and keep moving forward.
Don't sweat the small stuff.
- Richard Carlson
When we set smart goals, and things don't go our way, we start to get really discouraged and want to just quit. Our mentor, Bill Harris, taught us that there is no such thing as failure. There is only feedback.
So, take the feedback and don't sweat the small stuff. Focus on your objective and why you are taking all the action steps to realize your goals. Remember, the super successful have more setbacks and feedback than the dreamers who only wish and hope for things to magically appear.
Begin with the end in mind.
- Stephen Covey
When we continue to focus on the big picture, all the little troubles seem to fall away. We are laser focused to achieve what is we set out to do, and keep working towards our goal until we get what we want.
Every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.
- Napoleon Hill
Another Napoleon Hill success quote, I know. But, he has a lot of great quotes on success! It's perfect how he re-frames adversity into something that can be useful to us as we work towards the finish line. Imagine all the great things you have accomplished because you were faced with adversity.
Did it make you stronger? Did it make you smarter? Did it make reaching your goal that much sweeter? Use adversity as fuel rather than extra baggage.
What quotes have helped you in your journey? Add to the conversation and share what you think is beneficial. The goal is to be, do, and have all that we want, and quotes on success can be a stepping stone to help us get to the goal.
Everybody has quote that motivates them to succeed. What's yours? Is it from a book, a movie, a friend?
