Success Quotes

Most people associate success with wealth and power and that’s fine but those aren’t the only things that makes a person successful. You could have all the money in the world but if you’re miserable, to many, you’re unsuccessful.

Although people define success differently, what it really comes down to is being able to achieve the outcome that you’re after. If that outcome is making a ton of money, then so be it. If it’s to laugh really hard at least once a day, then that’s what will make you feel successful.

Regardless of your definition, some form of action will be needed to achieve your outcome and this is where these success quotes can help. People usually fail because of a lack of ability, they fail because a lack of consistent action, a result of weak motivation.

That inner drive that will push you, get you up and going, even in the laziest of moments, comes from your mindset. When you’re constantly feeding your mind with empowering messages, it will leak over into your self talk. When the moment comes for you to make a decision to either take action or procrastinate, a positive, determined mindset will almost always triumph over a weak, negative, excuse making mindset.

As usual, I’ll be added more quotes about success to this page as I find them so bookmark this page and check back often. These are numbered merely for reference.
