 30 Famous Success Quotes


1. “If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.”

Dhirubhai Ambani


2. “The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.”

Mark Caine


3. “People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

Tony Robbins


4. “When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”

Audre Lorde


5. “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

Mark Twain


6. “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

Eleanor Roosevelt


7. “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Thomas A. Edison

Kim Garst


9.  “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”

David Brinkley


10. “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Steve Jobs


11. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Eleanor Roosevelt


12. “Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.”

Roger Babson

Mark Twain


15. “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.”

Vince Lombardi


16. “Success is about creating benefit for all and enjoying the process. If you focus on this & adopt this definition, success is yours.”

Kelly Kim


17. “I used to want the words ‘She tried’ on my tombstone. Now I want ‘She did it.'”

Katherine Dunham


18. “Really it comes down to your philosophy. Do you want to play it safe and be good or do you want to take a chance and be great?”

Jimmy J


19. “It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

J. K Rowling


20. “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”

Albert Einstein

23. “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.”

Swami Vivekananda


24. “Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.”

Dale Carnegie


25. “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”

Jim Rohn

Steve Jobs
