I failed my way to success.

Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that other throw at him.

People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.

All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.

The secret of success is to do the common thing uncommonly well.

Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life; it’s about what you inspire others to do.

The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.

I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure–It is: Try to please everybody.

I never dreamed about success, I worked for it.

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

If you can dream it, you can do it.

I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.

The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.

Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.

The secret to success is to know something nobody else knows.

Don’t be distracted by criticism. Remember–the only taste of success some people get is to take a bite out of you.

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.

I never did anything worth doing by accident, nor did any of my inventions come indirectly through accident, except the phonograph. No, when I have fully decided that a result is worth getting, I go about it, and make trial after trial, until it comes.

I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.

Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.

Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.

There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality.

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

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

Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.

The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same.

The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.

If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.

Never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.

If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.

Do one thing every day that scares you.

Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.

Fall seven times and stand up eight.

In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.

Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.

Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.

The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
