The best job goes to the person who can get it done without passing the buck or coming back with excuses.
The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.
For a man to achieve all that is demanded of him he must regard himself as greater than he is.
Four steps to achievement:
William Arthur Ward
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, Just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.
It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenge and does something about it.
We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The size of your accomplishments, the quality of your achievement, will depend very largely on how big a man you see in yourself, what sort of image you get of your possible self, yourself at your best.
Orison Swett Marden
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh
If you want to reach the mountain top, reach for the clouds. If you want to reach the clouds, reach for Heaven, if you want to reach heaven, reach for GOD. And if you want to reach GOD, You’ve got made because he is already reaching you.
Kenneth D. Freeman 2008
The roughest roads often lead to the top.
