Nothing resists a human will that stakes its very existence upon the achievement of its purpose.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
For many people,
an excuse is better than an achievement because
an achievement, no matter how great,
leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future
but an excuse can last for life."
The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it.
Achievement brings its own anticlimax.
Achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistent effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances.
Dissatisfaction with possession and achievement is one of the requisites to further achievement
There is no short cut to achievement. Life requires thorough preparation -- veneer isn't worth anything.
Productive achievement is a consequence and an expression of health, self-esteem, not its cause
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
The truth is that teamwork is at the heart of great achievement.
Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart.
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
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best, if he wins, knows the thrills of high achievement, and, if he fails, at least fails daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat
Desire is the starting point of all achievement.
The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
Love, as life, is a journey. Finding true love for the ever after is an amazing achievement.
Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
There is, first, the desire for strength, for achievement, for adequacy, for confidence in the face of the world, and for independence and freedom. Secondly, we have what we may call the desire for reputation or prestige
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope or confidence.
So great has been the endurance, so incredible the achievement, that, as long as the sun keeps a set course in heaven, it would be foolish to despair of the human race.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
Freedom is an internal achievement rather than an external adjustment.
The roots of true achievement lie in the will to become the best that you can become.
