"Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit" - Conrad Hilton
"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it" - Goethe
"You don't have to get it perfect, you just have to get it going" - Mark Victor Hansen

"There comes a moment when you have to stop revving up the car and shove it into gear" - David Mahoney
"Do your work with your whole heart and you will succeed - there is so little competition" - Elbert Hubbard
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unsuccessful genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan; 'press on', has solved and will solve the problems of the human race" - Calvin Coolidge
Figure out what you want, what you really want from life - your wildest fantasies come true. Sounds simple yet most people do not know what they really want from life. What makes you excited just to think about it? If you want to succeed in life then you need to know what it is that you are aiming for.
The most important trait you are going to need to succeed in life is DESIRE... ... a strong overpowering desire to have the things that spell out success to you.
DETERMINATION. Stick at it through thick and thin. Do not worry what other people think. Do not make excuses. The only failure is giving up or not even trying.
ACTION. Or as Nike says - Just Do It. Get out and give it a go - starting now.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. YOU CAN DO IT. You can succeed in life.
"Success is the freedom to do what you want, with whom you want, when you want, wherever you want." - Conan Stevens
