Achievement

Cicero

Do not hold the delusion that your advancement is accomplished by crushing others.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime
And departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.

Vince Lombardi

Vince Lombardi

The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.

Don Marquis

Successful people aren’t born that way. They become successful by establishing the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don’t like to do. The successful people don’t always like doing these things themselves; they just get on and do them.

Hal Elrod

The link between success and accountability is irrefutable. Virtually all highly successful people–from CEOs to professional athletes to the President of the United State–embrace a high degree of accountability.

Hal Elrod

It’s the greatest challenge of human history-to rise above our excuses, do what’s right, give our best and create the Level 10 life we truly want…

Sam Walton

There’s absolutely no limit to what plain, ordinary, working people can accomplish if they’re given the opportunity and encouragement to do their best.

Henry Van Dyke

Some succeed because they are destined to, but most succeed because they are determined to.

Earl Nightingale

To achieve happiness, we should make certain that we are never without an important goal.

Napoleon Hill

There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to achieve it.

Dennis Waitley

Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.

Tim Fargo

You can’t make time; so those who waste the least, achieve the most.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained in sudden flight but, they while their companions slept, they were toiling upwards in the night.

Aristotle

To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

Francis of Asissi

Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Lou Holtz

I can’t believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary.

Bessie Stanley

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much…who has left the world better than he found it…who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory is a benediction.

Theodore Roosevelt

Edgar Albert Guest

The joy of life is living it, or so it seems to me;
In finding shackles on your wrists, then struggling till you’re free;
In seeing wrongs and righting them, in dreaming splendid dreams,
Then toiling till the vision is as real as moving streams.
The happiest mortal on the earth is he who ends his day
By leaving better than he found to bloom along the way.
Were all things perfect here there would be naught for man to do;
If what is old were good enough we’d never need the new.
The only happy time of rest is that which follows strife
And sees some contribution made unto the joy of life.
And he who has oppression felt and conquered it is he
Who really knows the happiness and peace of being free.
The miseries of earth are here and with them all must cope.
Who seeks for joy, through hedges thick of care and pain must grope.
Through disappointment man must go to value pleasure’s thrill;
To really know the joy of health a man must first be ill.
The wrongs are here for man to right, and happiness is had
By striving to supplant with good the evil and the bad.
The joy of life is living it and doing things of worth,
In making bright and fruitful all the barren spots of earth.
In facing odds and mastering them and rising from defeat,
And making true what once was false, and what was bitter, sweet.
For only he knows perfect joy whose little bit of soil
Is richer ground than what it was when he began to toil.

John Maxwell

There is no achievement without failure. To even imply that it might be possible gives people the wrong impression… If your perception of and response to failure were changed, what would you attempt to achieve?

John Maxwell

The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. Nothing else has the same kind of impact on people’s ability to achieve and to accomplish whatever their minds and hearts desire.

Zig Ziglar

Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success.

John C. Maxwell

Success is…
knowing your purpose in life,
growing to reach your maximum potential, and
sowing seeds that benefit others.

Vince Lombardi Jr.

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.

George Mallory

How to get the best of it all? One must conquer, achieve, get to the top; one must know the end to be convinced that one can win the end…

Doak Walker, NFL Running Back

The most important thing in becoming a success is the three P’s – practice, perseverance, and prayer.

Thomas Jefferson

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

Michael Jordan

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Earl Nightingale

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

Harry Truman

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.

Tomie dePaola

Reading is important because if you can read, you can learn anything about everything and everything about anything.

William F. Baker & Michael O’Malley

The first rule of success is to find someone who can help you to succeed.  No one achieves life’s ambitions without the steady, guiding hands of others.

Zig Ziglar

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

Florence Nightingale

I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse.

Booker T. Washington

If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.

Brian Tracy

The act of taking the first step is what separates the winners from the losers.

John Wooden

Don’t mistake activity with achievement.
