Successful People Are Obsessed With Success Quotes

Successful people seem to be obsessed with success quotes. 

They love to throw them around wherever and whenever they can.  success risk wealth

Successful speakers love to use quotes as do successful authors.

Success and quotes go together like beer and pretzels.

So, I thought I’d share some of the quotes I’ve accumulated from interviewing self-made millionaires, from some of my favorite books/blogs and from some of the best speakers I’ve come in contact with.

I haven’t taken the time to uncover the original source of some of these quotes.

If you do know the authors shoot me an email.

Here’s some of my favourites:

1. “Successful people don’t wait for the elevator in life; they take the stairs.” Unknown

2. “The path to success involves surviving one disappointment after another without losing your enthusiasm.” I’ve seen various versions of this quote. They all seem to originate from Winston Churchill

3. “Motivation: With it you can run a marathon; without it you can’t lace your sneakers.” Unknown

4. “Dreams are God’s way of whispering in our ears.” Unknown

Pablo (81)

6. “Those who never make mistakes work for those of us who do.” Henry Ford

    The poorest segment of society are those who retire without having achieved home ownership. They may be living on welfare or even superannuation and are still paying rent.
