All of us want to experience success.

But what is success?

Success is a different thing to different people.

How we define success may differ but one thing we can agree on is that success can be achieved only when we persevere through hardships and difficulties.

  • Successful relationships have many deep or difficult talks.
  • Successful businesses have undergone many trials and errors.
  • Successful athletics have put in countless hours practicing their crafts over and over.

Yes, some people stumbled upon success accidentally but those successes never seem to last. For most of us, success comes at a price.

Here are some of the BEST quotes I have accumulated so you can find success in spite of failures, setbacks, and/or difficulties.

Enjoy!

Conclusion

If you enjoyed this post, be sure to share with a friend who is desperate to have more success in his/her life.

The key lesson from all the quotes is this, success isn’t an accidental thing that happened to a few lucky individuals; success consists of hard work and determination.

If you are willing to work hard and fail, you are one step closer to success.

The worst thing you can do is do nothing.

It is better to try and fail than to fail to try.

Don’t be afraid to break things, go out explore, make mistakes, learn, grow. All these are essentials for a successful life.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain
