“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.” -William James

“Failure is necessary to being successful in life. There’s a big difference between quitting and failure.” -Brandon Webb

“The point is that I don’t believe you need the mind of a champion to be successful in business.  You need to do only two things: work harder than all those who are competing with you and imitate the actions of successful people you admire.  If you do that long enough, you will have the success you yearn for.  And as a bonus, you will have acquired courage and confidence, too.” -Mark Ford

“If I had to choose one skill as being most important in achieving success in life, I would say it is the skill of developing successful habits….  It really comes down to grit.  You can form any positive habit you want, so long as you have realistic expectations, plan your days accordingly, and stay determined to make it happen.” -Mark Ford

“Yes, you need a positive attitude to be happy.  But you can be quite successful by most measures simply by applying my success formula:

  • Decide exactly what it is you want.
  • Make it a primary goal.
  • Establish a series of yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily objectives to achieve that goal.
  • Resist the urge to give up along the way.

My own experience proves that, by doing this, you can achieve almost anything you want in life—even if you don’t have much faith in your own abilities.” -Mark Ford

“You don’t need to hit rock bottom to be successful.  You just need something that ignites you.” -James Altucher
