Successful Quotes for Living Life to the Fullest


Some of the most successful people failed. With numerous attempts to get it right, failure teaches all the ways it should not be done.

"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently."Henry Ford

Some are born to be great and some are born to be a success but no matter how long it takes, a person who doesn’t give up, can succeed.

“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” - William Arthur Ward

Success is determination

“That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

“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.” – Michael Jordan

“Many of life’s failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” – Thomas Edison

“The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time.” Abraham Lincoln

Take what you learn and apply it.

“Courage can be a form of tenaciousness, a refusal to quit because you’re tired, hurt, humiliated or emotionally broken.” — Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons, authors

Success is diligence

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” – Warren Buffett

“I don’t look to jump over 7 foot bars; I look around for the 1 foot bars that I can step over." – Warren Buffett

“Giving money and making money have a lot of similarities. In my work at Microsoft, my job was hiring talented engineers to solve tough problems that look unsolvable and backing their work for five to 10 years and understanding what works and what doesn’t work.” – Bill Gates

“Some people dream of success – while others wake up and work hard at it.” – Unknown

Which are you?

Blessings of Success

If success is determined by our blessings then faith is a walk, a journey into greater understanding.

“There’s nothing wrong with using the Bible as a guide to self-improvement. Jesus’s life provides a powerful example for our own.

But self-improvement is not really the point of the Bible because the center of Christianity is not to self, it is Christ.” – Billy Graham

We cannot earn our way to Heaven by the path of good deeds. The only passage way to Heaven is through the grace of God, by the work of Jesus Christ.

“The most important word in my opinion is Love. And if everyone had that to the degree of which they should have, I don’t believe our problems would be so unmanageable.” – John Wooden

Dare to Dream

There are no limits to the possibility of achieving success.

“DREAM BIG” – John Maxwell

Believing is everything. What you think creates the illusion or disillusion of anything and everything.

“What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.” —Wayne Dyer

Who you are has nothing to do with the clothes you wear, the car you drive, or the kind of home you live in. Success does not come from any of these.

“Everyone comes naked from their mother’s womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart. They take nothing from their toil that they can carry in their hands.” – Ecclesiastes 5:15 (NIV)

Hope you enjoyed these quotes on success. All the quotes in bold are mine others are noted. Success says, to be all you can be and never give up. Learn everything you can, find wisdom, be diligent, and Dare to Dream.

"Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding." - Proverbs 3:13
