7 inspirational quotes about success

Inspirational quotes about successIf you’re looking for inspirational quotes about success then first think about what success really means to you. Your definition of success will not necessarily be the same as someone else’s.

Success to you might be nothing more than being happy and content. That’s admirable and there’s nothing wrong with that as a goal. However someone else might be looking for more.

For them success might be an Olympic gold medal or winning the Super Bowl.

Before you pursue success you would do well to reflect on what it means to you and why you want it. Knowing your why is half the battle when it comes to achieving success.

Success is something that is desired by many people but which only the few truly achieve.

To be successful, you have to want it so bad that it hurts. That’s why it’s important to know your why. If you know your ‘why?’ you will be able to bear any ‘how’.

You must be focused on your goals; you must be disciplined; you must be determined; you must be prepared to make sacrifices; you must be prepared to work very, very hard; and you must possess self-belief too.

Remember; nothing worth having ever comes easy.

If you want success then you must be prepared to pay the price in blood, sweat and tears. And the price must be paid first.

You’ll get nothing before you’ve paid the price. You’ll find that even people who are an ‘overnight success’ have spent years honing their skills before favourable circumstances provided them with an opportunity to shine like a star.

Nothing happens overnight. You’ve got to work at and keep working at it.

And remember this too; you will experience failure from time to time and you will question whether you’re good enough over and over again.

The temptation to quit will be overwhelming at times. You’ll be constantly tempted to settle for an easier life. Don’t!

Success can be achieved if you stick at it and just keep going. Focus on the prize.

In the words of the late, great Muhammad Ali, I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’

Success can be yours if you work hard and hang on in there until you achieve what it is that you want to achieve. So go for it!

And remember also; it’s better to try and fail than never having tried at all. At least you won’t spend the rest of your life wondering what might have been.

Inspirational quotes about success:

  1. Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. ~Norman Vincent Peale
  2. Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, a good teammate, a good role model? There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not? ~LeBron James
  3. Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfilment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them. ~Jack Canfield
  4. The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. ~Vince Lombardi
  5. At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure. ~Erin Cummings
  6. Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together. ~Paul Ryan
  7. 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. ~Thomas J. Watson
