Secrets of Success in a Few Words

What or who inspires you? I love quotes – it’s the ability of wise people to condense a pearl of wisdom into just a few words. Here a few of my favourites to help you with whatever challenges you are facing at the moment.

“Six essential qualities are the keys to success: sincerity, personal integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom, charity.” – Dr. William Menninger

“Creativity is the ability to see things in a new way, and from that insight to produce something that didn’t exist before – something original.” – Bill Moyers, 1983

“The best way to escape criticism is to do nothing, say nothing and be nothing.” – Elbert Hubbard, 1923

“The struggle of life is one of our greatest blessings. It makes us patient, sensitive, and Godlike. It teaches us that although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” – Helen Keller

“Great ideas need landing gear as well as wings.” – C.D. Jackson

“Start by doing what’s necessary, then what’s possible, and suddenly, you are doing the impossible.” – St. Francis of Assisi

My personal favourite, although I don’t know who said it originally is, “The past no longer exists – the future is yet to exist – the only reality is the present moment.” I’ve discovered that living in the moment is the most powerful thing I can do to succeed.
