Sometimes Quotable Quotes focuses on a person, sometimes an idea and sometimes on a word. The problem is that certain words keep coming to mind, which is what happened today when I focused on “success.”
As I collected quotes I realized some were familiar enough that I must have used them in the past, but I chose the ones I liked best and started to organize them for you.
But just in case, I thought I would check; good thing I did. The first Quotable Quotes: Success was December, 2009 and the second was January this year. That wouldn’t have mattered, but nearly everything I chose I had used previously.
The old posts are worth taking a look at and here are three new entries.
Mark Victor Hansen reminds us that there is no best time to start something, except now, “Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
Many people get excited because of an external event or person, but Fred Shero offers a better way, “Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.”
I really like this final thought and I have to thank Emily White for sharing it with me.

As for the image, I couldn’t resist. It just goes to show that the things that are most important when you are young are the same things important as you grow old.
