These 50 success phrases allow us to reflect on how to achieve what we want. However, the idea is to reflect on this issue. Is success everything? And what happens beyond getting it? On these matters, they deal with the expressions that we have collected.
The 5 best success phrases
Our work consisted of finding out and capturing half a hundred sentences in this text . However, the initial five have something extra. They are phrases that stand out, that is why we wanted to place them at the beginning of this list. We present them below:
1.- ” You have to learn the rules of the game and then play better than anyone else .” Albert Einstein . This phrase was spoken by an eminent scientist.
- ” The secret of a successful life is to find what your destiny is and then pursue it .” Henry Ford .
3.- “ Meeting is the beginning; Keeping together is progress; working together is success ”. Henry Ford .
4.- ” Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life .” Steve Jobs .
5.- “ Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once I grow up . ” Pablo Picasso .
The fifth sentence seems to get away from the topic of success, but it is not. It happens that the youthful spirit is one of the keys to success.
Likewise, we invite you to read our compilation of inspiring phrases , which will serve precisely to motivate us to achieve what we want.
Success quote of the week
A week is a new cycle that opens. Therefore, it is extremely useful to begin each weekly period with a phrase that invokes success . In this case, we have selected a phrase that invites reflection. Basically, an invitation to pursue our personal wishes.
6.- “ If you don’t design your own life plan, there are many opportunities that you will fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you. Not much ”. Jim Rohn .
You have to take into account just that: have a life plan. In case of not having it, we already know that we will let ourselves be carried away by the intentions of other people. In other words, we will work to make the dreams of others come true. Better to start the week with our own plan!
All our success phrases
In total, there are fifty phrases of success that we have added in this text. We wanted to choose phrases with their authors. Likewise, that they have been pronounced by people who have stood out and therefore are excellent representatives of the word success.
7.- “ When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the mission, and I told them they didn’t understand life . ” John Lennon .
8.- ” If you hear a voice inside you say” it cannot be painted, “then of course the painting will silence the voice .” Vincent Van Gogh . Beautiful phrase of this magnificent artist. When everyone says that something is impossible, you should feel that negativity as a fuel to achieve your goals.
9.- ” If A is success in life, then A = X + Y + Z. Where X is work, Y is pleasure and Z is keeping your mouth shut .” Albert Einstein .
10.- ” Success depends on prior preparation, and without it failure will surely come .” Confucius . This phrase is interesting. It teaches us that success is not something you do right away. Actually, it means having a goal first.
11.- “ First, have a clear and defined practical ideals, a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends, wisdom, money, materials and methods. Third, adjust all means to that end . ” Aristotle .
We want to make a fair stop at this sentence by Aristotle. As can be seen, the Greek philosopher marks the guidelines and routes that first entail planting a goal. Then plan the way to reach that goal. For more reflections on the matter, we invite you to read our phrases of improvement .
12.- ” The first step towards success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you find yourself.” Mark Caine . What can be deduced from this sentence? Well, one of the keys to success is not being a conformist. Simple as that! If you settle, you stay where you are.
13.- ” Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning .” Gloria Steinem . Beautiful phrase that reveals to us that dreaming is the first step in that planning. Dreaming is the trigger that makes us look for things.
14.- ” Identify your problems, but put your power and energy in the solutions “. Tony Robbins . Another interesting phrase. It does not speak directly to us about dreams, goals or putting energy into it. No! It simply points out one of the most common pitfalls: putting energy into goals and not solutions. We must prevent this from happening to us!
15.- “ Success is not the end, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts ”. Winston Churchill . Interesting phrase of this English prime minister. It happens that when many people achieve a goal … then they stay there. We must be careful: the goals are not limits, they are actually steps that make us ascend more and more.
16.- ” The achievement of an objective must be the starting point of another “. Alexander Graham Bell . This phrase is linked to the previous one (No. 15). An achievement should never stagnate us. Rather, it should lead us to yet another achievement.
Again we make a stop in this list of 50 success phrases . Curiously, in the last sentences that we are presented something very peculiar happens: it seems that we are questioning success. And it is that many times achieving an achievement is an obstacle.
Many people are proud of an achievement and do not keep moving forward. They also don’t know what to do with success when they do. Therefore, success must be sought … but you also have to be careful with success.
17.- “No, I don’t want success for anyone. It happens to you what happens to the mountaineers, who kill themselves to reach the top and when they arrive, what do they do? Get off, or try to get off discreetly, with the greatest possible dignity ”. Gabriel Garcia Marquez . This phrase from the great author of ” One Hundred Years of Solitude” shows that success has its flaws. You have to know how to handle it.
18.- ” Success consists of going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm .” Winston Churchill . Again another phrase from the great English Prime Minister. And it is that failures are actually learning.
19.- “ Success tries to create benefit for everyone and enjoy the process. If you can focus on that and embrace the definition, success is yours. ” Kelly Kim . This is relevant: success is not a selfish question. In reality, it is something that is shared as it is emanated. Haven’t you heard that a successful person “radiates something different”?
20.- “ If you’ve never had a great success, you don’t know what you’re worth; success is the touchstone of characters ”. Beloved Nervo .
21.- ” People rarely succeed at something before having fun in what they do .” Dale Carnegie . There is a false belief in combining the concepts of success with extreme work and suffering. This is false! Those who are successful have fun doing their job.
22.- ” 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 .
23.- ” You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try .” Beverly Sills . Moral: not trying is failing. Simple as that!
Where does the key to success lie? There are many answers about it. And the reason is due to the fact that there are precisely several elements.
Therefore, it happens that success is an integral matter. It is not a single factor that achieves this. You do not have to focus on just one thing, but on several elements. Those who only see things from one point of view never achieve the honeys of success.
24.- ” Many of the failures in people’s lives occur when they did not realize how close they were to success when they left.” Thomas A. Edison . The insistence is relevant. You never have to stop insisting when you are looking for success: sometimes we have it close, but we do not realize it.
25.- “ Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two sure stones towards success ”. Dale Carnegie .
26.- ” When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the plane takes off against the wind, not with it .” Henry Ford . A phrase from one of the most successful men of the 20th century: learn to carry on even against the circumstances.
27.- ” If there is a secret to success, it lies in the ability to appreciate the point of view of others and see things from that point of view as well as one’s own .” Henry Ford .
28.- ” There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid that you will succeed .” Ray Goforth . Here you have to keep something in mind: never listen to negatives. Only you know whether or not you can achieve success. Furthermore, failure or success is a personal experience … no one can dictate it to you.
29.- “ Everything you want is out there waiting for you to do it. Everything you want wants you too. But you have to take steps to achieve it . ” Jack Canfield .
30.- ” Our greatest glory is never in failing, but in getting up every time we fall .” Confucius .
31.- “When you cannot change the direction of the wind, simply adjust the sails. H. Jackson Brown Jr .
Sentence No. 31 is very interesting. What does it tell us? What can we learn from it? Well, you have to be flexible and adapt to circumstances. One of the mistakes in the pursuit of success is being 100% rigid. When this happens, the slightest change inevitably slows us down.
32.- ” Two classes of people fail in life: those who know nothing and those who think they know everything .” Warren Buffett .
33.- “ I have found that the more I work, the luckier it seems that I have” . Thomas Jefferson .
34.- ” Twenty years later you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.” Mark Twain . It is time to take action. It is time to act and never be left with doubts about whether or not you could succeed.
35.- ” Life is what we do, it has always been and always will be .” Grandma Moses . You don’t have to settle for words. The best thing is to take action. Success is not just intentions, but concrete facts. Never forget this!
36.- “Success is not achieved only with special qualities. It is above all a work of perseverance, method and organization ” . JP Sergent .
37.- “Success is only half as beautiful when there is no one to envy us .” Norman Mailer . This phrase is very peculiar. However, he points out that others should watch success. The bad thing is that there are envies and their due consequences. Accepting success implies that we will drag envy. It is unavoidable!
38.- ” The reason why some people find it so difficult to be happy is because they see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be .” Marcel Pagnol .
39.- “Stay away from those people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do it, but the truly great make you feel that you too can be great ”. Mark Twain .
40.- ” My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but by doing our best right now, we put ourselves in the best place for the next moment .” Oprah Winfrey .
Again we stop, this time to think again about the meaning of success. It happens that success does not really seem to be an end point to which we arrive and everything is over. Actually, it is a point that makes us look for something new. After all, we live while we are in constant motion. Stagnating is a very negative thing!
41.- ” If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door .” Milton Berle . Many times, we hope that things are ideal. Also, the great excuse is that the circumstances are not positive. The truth is that we must create opportunities. This is the way of a successful person.
42.- ” All our dreams can come true if we only have the courage to pursue them .” Walt Disney . Many times, we are afraid of our own dreams. We believe that they are too distant and impossible. We must avoid this type of ideas that clip our wings.
43.- ” Success comes to all those who are busy looking for it .” Henry Thoreau . Certainly, to get results you have to invest time. Success is like a plant we harvest: it will grow and take roots only if we put in the proper time.
44.- ” To be successful we must do everything possible to appear successful .” François de La Rochefoucauld .
45.- “To be successful, planning alone is insufficient. One must improvise too ” . Isaac Asimov .
46.- “ I learned that if you go forward confidently in the direction of your dreams and undertake the life you have imagined for yourself, you will find unexpected success in your ordinary hours . Henry David Thoreau .
47.- ” Your most dissatisfied customers should be your greatest source of learning .” Bill Gates . We must also learn from failures. Many times, those who criticize us are the people who tell us the truths that we really need.
48.- “ If you don’t pursue what you want, you will never have it. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. If you don’t take a step forward, you will always be in the same place ”. Nora Roberts .
49.- “ For most important things, the moment will always be inappropriate. The universe does not conspire against you, but it also does not stop to align your path. Conditions will never be perfect. Someday it is the disease that takes your dreams to the grave. If something is important to you and you want to do it, go and do it right now and correct the course as you go along ”. Timothy Ferriss .
50.- “ Working with the Bulls, I learned that the most effective way to build a winning team is by appealing to the players’ need to connect with something bigger than themselves. Building a successful team is essentially a spiritual act. This requires that the players renounce their personal interests for the greater good and thus the whole adds up to more than the sum of its parts ”. Phil Jackson .
The last phrase we choose is very special. It was delivered by Phil Jackson , who is one of the most recognized coaches in the NBA. It is interesting what he says about creating a higher interest, something that is more remarkable than individual interests. Only in this way is another variant of success achieved: collective success.
We hope that these 50 success phrases will be of interest to all our readers. Likewise, we invite you to also read the compilation of our series and movies phrases , which will surely be of great interest. Don’t stop reading them!
