~ Success ~
As with any goal in life, if you fish long enough, you will catch fish.



Success is caused...



Success is getting up just one more time than you fall down.



Success often comes when you continue to say "I can" while others laugh and ridicule and say "you can't." When someone says "you can't" or "you will never amount to anything important" what they are really saying is that they couldn't succeed...but they don't know you or your true capability, they only know their own limitations.



Success is taking the dreams, wishes, and possibilities of what could be, and through action and persistence making those dreams and wishes become reality.



If you think you will fail, you will.
If you think you won't make it, you won't.
If you think it is impossible to get back up, it will be...
If you think you will make it, and you try long enough, you will succeed.



Wisdom is a choice we make to understand that life's failures as well as life's successes are our teachers.



Success or failure is not due to one's circumstances. Success or failure is due to one's attitude and commitment to action...



The Progressing Staircase of Success:
Never changes to Couldn't possibly...
Couldn't possibly changes to Just can't...
Just can't changes to I don't see how I can do it...
I don't see how I can do it changes to It's a long shot...
It's a long shot changes to A possibility with a lot of effort...
A possibility with a lot of effort changes to I think I might be able to try to do it...
I think I might be able to try to do it changes to I really think I have a chance at this...
I really think I have a chance at this changes to I think I have a great chance to succeed...
I think I have a great chance to succeed changes to This time I think I've actually done it!
This time I think I've actually done it! changes to Fantastic! I have really succeeded at this!
Fantastic! I have really succeeded at this! changes to It wasn't as difficult as I first thought...
So what stage of success are you at? Whatever stage, just continue forward!



Success is maximized when it is shared with others...
Potential is maximized when it is shared with others...
Happiness is maximized when it is shared with others...
There seems to be a pattern here...



Be aware that on the road to success there will be opposition. There may be critics from within and critics from the outside. Use the potential power of opposition, criticism, and adversity as fuel to move you closer to your dream. Fight and stand up for your vision and dream because it is more important than the opposition it creates.



Success is certainty over doubt.
Success is determination over failure.
Success is decision over circumstance.
Success is making positive things happen instead of letting negative things take hold.
Success is many things, but the key ingredient is you...



When you help others to succeed, you succeed. The object of success is to pass it along. By giving it away, you not only enjoy the success, but you enjoy seeing others have the success you have had. The success lives on as an ongoing experience, not just a passing moment.



The successes and accomplishments of tomorrow start with the difficult and impossible things of today...



The ability of someone to succeed is equal to their ability to continue forward in the face of failure or trial and error.



Success itself is a static state. Taking action to maximize one's potential and success is the true power of life...



You win some, you lose some...but you have to get ready and try for them all. The more you try, the more you may lose, but the more you try, the more you WILL win!



A successful person is one who takes action on dreams and ideas others only think about...



In the race for happiness and success in life, you are moving closer to your goal as long as you keep trying. Sometimes you may slow down to a crawl, but as long as you keep going and keep trying you are succeeding!



The seeds of success begin in the trenches of the mind.



How much does one small step at a time add up? Do small steps really make a difference?
The answer is a profound yes, as illustrated in this example:
When you walk up a mountain, one step at a time, each step may not seem like a lot...but once you reach the top of the mountain and look down, you realize how far you have come.



failure after failure after
failure after failure after
failure after failure after
failure after failure after
failure after failure after
failure after failure after
failure after failure after
failure after failure after
failure and a success = SUCCESS.



Many times something "can't be done" only because it hasn't been done...



Success has a snowball effect...once it starts, many times it attracts other successes.



The true pioneer or successful person is one who aims for a target no one else sees...yet.



Information received but not acted upon remains information. Information received and acted upon turns into experience. Enough experience eventually turns into success.



The Law of Success: Do it until you get it right.
