Helen Hayes – Distinction between achievement & success

Share this quote:
My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.

Helen Hayes

Carolyn Warner – Attitude is key to success or failure

Share this quote:
I am convinced that attitude is the key to success or failure in almost any of life’s endeavors. Your attitude, your perspective, your outlook, how you feel about yourself, how you feel about other people – determines your priorities, your actions, your values. Your attitude determines how you interact with other people and how you interact with yourself.

Jim Rohn – Success is nothing more than. . .

Share this quote:
Jim RohnSuccess is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.

Anita Brookner – The hare wins

Share this quote:
In real life, of course, it is the hare who wins. Every time. Look around you. And in any case it is my contention that Aesop was writing for the tortoise market. . . Hares have no time to read. They are too busy winning the game.

Anita Brookner   (1928-2016)
