"Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand."
-- Bruce Barton 

"Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that?s where you will find success." 
- Thomas J. Watson 

"The successful always has a number of projects planned, to which he looks forward. Anyone of them could change the course of his life overnight." 
-Mark Caine 

"When a man feels throbbing within him the power to do what he undertakes as well as it can possibly be done, this is happiness, this is success."
Orison Swett Marden 

"The great successful men of the world have used their imagination?they think ahead and create their mental picture in all its details, filling in here, adding a little there, altering this a bit and that a bit, but steadily building - steadily building."
Robert Collier
