Key Of Success: Success And Inspire Quotes

Successful quotes may be short and sound simple, but they will really works if you know the true meaning behind the quotes and work on it. These quotes is not the key to success, instead it is the door of success. The effort and work you are willing to put in to work on the success quotes is the key of success, it will help you open the door of succees.

People have been wondering how successful people like Albert Einstein, Michael Jordan, Woody Allen, Lance Armstrong and others succeed in career and life. What is their real secrets? There is actually no secrets to become a successful person, all you have to do is work extra hard master your skills to be successful in what you want to achieve even Buddha have its own quotes that will teach you how to be successful in life. Michael Jordan have made a quotes: "I failed over and over in life, this is why I am successful now.", this is a quote that everyone should understand and follows it.

So this is one of my own success quote: "The key of success is not the success and inspiring quotes, it is the effort and hard work you willing to work on the quotes".

In this lens, I will show you 10 successful quotes made by 10 successful person and explain it briefly what it means in my own words hopefully everyone of you can understand it and remember the quotes to help you to be successful on Squidoo too.

Woody Allen: 80% Of Success Is Showing Up. - Success And Inspire Quotes

Now lets get back to Woody Allen quotes, it means that if you want to succeed, you really have to show up and you cannot hide and fear. A lot of people want to achieve something, but in the end they are lack of confidence and does not want to try. This is why I say 80% of people does not want to be successful. The rest of the 20% is to do your best and better than others, then the voctory is yours.

George Burns: I Rather Be A Failure In Something I Love, Rather Than Succeed In Something I Hate. - Success And Inspire Quotes

This quote have 2 meanings from my point of view.

First meaning: Everyone should play fair, so when you lose you would feel better that you did try your best without cheating. If you achieve something unfairly, you will never be happy even if you achieve it, you will have a feeling of guilt.

Second Meaning: A good loser is better than a bad winner. When you lose and respect your opponents, you feel more happy and respected. But if you are a winner and disrespect your opponent, you won't get respected by people.

Vidal Sassoon: The Only Place Where Success Come Before Works Us Dictionary. - Success And Inspire Quotes

By Vidal Sassoon, what it means is that 'success' is just a word, keep saying it without action is nothing, you need to work on something then you achieve the real success. Because success will never come before work, they will only come after work.

So do not keep saying or thinking you want to succeed, you have to work on it to achieve what you want. Heres an example : "You should create at least 50 lens before thinking of being a squidoo giant, if you have not created 50 lens yet, squidoo giant is just a word in your mind."

Sometimes many of us forget how important is attitude, but with a bad attitude you will have a very low chance to success. If a person have a very good attitude of keep wanting to try, he will keep trying on what he want to achieve.
