A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau
Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.
Those who say it can't be done should get out of the way of those who are doing it.
Joel Arthur Barker

May you live all the days of your life.
Inspiration usually comes during work, rather than before it.
The way of progress is neither swift nor easy.
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.

Get up one time more than you're knocked down.
Peter's Principle of Success
Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Losers visualize the penalties of failure. Winners visualize the rewards of success.
The great successful men of the world have used their imagination ... they think ahead and create their mental picture in all it details, filling in here, adding a little there, altering this a bit and that a bit, but steadily building -- steadily building.
The best way out is always through.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Most people who succeed in the face of seemingly impossible conditions are people who simply don't know how to quit.
The harder I work, the luckier I get.
The ambitious climb high and perilous stairs, and never care how to come down; the desire of rising hath swallowed up their fear of a fall.
I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed; and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying.
Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.
There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there's only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen.
Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
You can have anything in life you want if you just help enough other people get what they want.
