John D. Rockefeller

Brian Tracy


“The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion… It is the man who carefully advances step by step, with his mind becoming wider and wider – and progressively better able to grasp any theme or situation – persevering in what he knows to be practical, and concentrating his thought upon it, who is bound to succeed in the greatest degree.”

“When I was younger, I thought that the key to success was just hard work. But the real foundation is faith. Faith — the idea that “I can do it — is the opposite of fear (“What if I fail?”). And faith creates motivation which in turn leads to commitment, hard work, preparation … and eventually success.”

Howard Twilley


“Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.”

Og Mandino

Norman Vincent Peale

Maxwell Maltz


“Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind’s eye and you will be drawn toward it. Picture yourself vividly as winning and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. Great living starts with a picture, held in your imagination, of what you would like to do or be.”

Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick


Success Quotes

“Loser’s visualize the penalties of failure. Winners visualize the rewards of success.”

Dr. Rob Gilbert

Norman Vincent Peale


“The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic, and self-complacent is erroneous. On the contrary, it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant, and kind. Failure makes people bitter and cruel.”

Somerset Maugham


“Failure: A few errors in judgment repeated every day. Success: A few simple disciplines practiced every day.”

James Rohn
