Success

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent

people and affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of

honest critics and endure the

betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty, to

find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better,

whether by a healthy child,

a garden patch, or

a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed

easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded!

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

***

In order to succeed, we must first believe we can. ~ Michael Korda

Success is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.  ~ Thomas Edison

To succeed it is necessary to accept the world as it is and rise above it. ~ Michael Korda

In all things success depends on previous preparation and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.  ~ Confucious

The difference between a successful person and the others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather, a lack of will. ~ Vince Lombardi

We rise to high positions or remain at the bottom because of conditions we can control if we desire to control them. ~ Unknown
