Success can be described in one way as the opposite of failure althought there are many shades of grey in between these two concepts. In an earlier post, I talked about Overcoming the Fear of Failure through quotes by famous people.
In this blog, you can read some quotes by famous people about achieving success. Most successful people will tell you that a lot of hard work is involved along with a bit of luck. It is there for the taking to those who put in the effort and know what they want.

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
Booker T. Washington
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.
Action is the foundational key to all success.

There are also quotes such as "I'm rich because I won the lottery!" or "I inherited my parents' success!" but these apply only to the fortunate few. Read about the people you admire who have achieved success and the methods they used to achieve it. There's a good chance that you can apply the same principles and do likewise. Take a chance and work hard!
