Don’t shoot for something unattainable – completely outside of your nature or opportunity.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.
It is possible to fail in many ways...while to succeed is possible only in one way.
Man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed, but not defeated.
You learn as much from those who have failed as from those who have succeeded
The road to success is lined with many tempting parking spaces.
If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.
It's nice to be the best, but not when being the best brings out the worst in you.
You can make goals for family, relationships, anything.
To succeed, you need to take that gut feeling in what you believe and act on it with all of your heart.
Real success is finding your lifework in the work that you love.
Success is counted sweetest by those who ne'er succeed.
I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.
You owe it to yourself to find your own unorthodox way of succeeding, or sometimes, just surviving.
To freely bloom - that is my definition of success.
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
From success to failure is one step; from failure to success is a long road.
Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.
There are defeats more triumphant than victories.

It is clearly not the journey for everyone. People succeed in as many ways as there are people. Some can be completely fulfilled with destinations that are much closer to home and more comfortable. But if you long to keep going, then I hope you are able to follow my lead to the places I have gone. To within a whisper of your own personal perfection. To places that are sweeter because you worked so hard to arrive there. To places at the very edge of your dreams.
