The birthplace of success for each person is in his Inner-Consciousness. The Inner-Consciousness will use whatever it is given. If constructive thoughts are planted positive outcomes will be the result. Plant the seeds of failure and failure will follow. And since the only real freedom a person has is the choice of what thoughts he will feed to his Inner-Consciousness he is totally responsible for the outcomes he gets.

The character ethic, which I believe to be the foundation of success, teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.

Stephen Covey

The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic, and self-complacent is erroneous -- on the contrary, it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant, and kind. It is failure that makes people bitter and cruel.

Albert Einstein

The END of anything/any human counts more than it's/his/her beginning. Yes of course, it's only he/she that endures to the end or rather holds firm to his/her faith that will be saved at last. Moreover, it's the end of a vision/aspiration/dream that proves whether it's ordinary or extraordinary, true or false. Also, it's he/she that perseveres/persists to the end that can/will leap/reap the reward for hard-work i.e. genuine success. Likewise, it's he/she that eventually reaches/crosses the finish line that emerges a winner in a race. Besides, it's your last thoughts/words/actions that will determine your salvation or damnation on the day of reckoning. As a matter of fact, it's better for you to begin badly in anything/something and afterwards end up well in it. Than for you to begin well in something/anything and afterwards end up badly in it. For, that will entail nothing else but only a tragedy. Anyway, all of the above illustrations evidently signifies that, the END of anything/something/any human truly counts more than it's/his/her beginning. Therefore, I urge you to be more concerned with your end or the end of anything/anyone rather than your/it's/his/her begining. For surely, the END is ever the BOTTOM LINE. ~Emeasoba George.

The essence of success is that it is never necessary to think of a new idea oneself. It is far better to wait until somebody else does it, and then to copy him in every detail, except his mistakes.

Aubrey Menen

The essential element of successful strategy is that it derives its success from the differences between competitors with a consequent difference in their behavior. Ordinarily, this means that any corporate policy and plan which is typical of the industry is doomed to mediocrity. Where this is not so, it should be possible to demonstrate that all other competitors are at a distinct disadvantage.

The freedom to fail is vital if you're going to succeed, most successful men fail time and time again, and it is a measure of their strength that failure merely propels them into some new attempt at success.

Michael Korda

The game of life is to come up a winner, to be a success, or to achieve what we set out to do. Yet there is always the danger of failing as a human being.

Richard Milhous Nixon

The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.

Wilson Mizner

The great difference between those who succeed and those who fail does not consist in the amount of work done by each but in the amount of intelligent work. Many of those who fail most ignominiously do enough to achieve grand success but they labor haphazardly at whatever they are assigned, building up with one hand to tear down with the other. They do not grasp circumstances and change them into opportunities. They have no faculty for turning honest defeats into telling victories. With ability enough and ample time, the major ingredients of success, they are forever throwing back and forth an empty shuttle and the real web of their life is never woven.

Og Mandino

Albert Einstein

The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might of the force of habit and must understand that practices are what create habits. He must be quick to break those habits that can break him and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help him achieve the success he desires.
