What does success mean to you?
Is it a million dollars in the bank? The perfect body? Is success the
satisfaction of knowing that you did your best today?
However you define success, the starting point for achieving it is in the
definition itself. As Mike Brescia says, “you can’t reach success if you can’t
define it.” You have to “begin with the end in mind” according to Stephen
Covey. In simple terms, you have to know where you’re going and, more
importantly, why you’re going there in order to know when you’ve arrived.
This collection of successful thoughts will help you to define success on
your own terms. In reflecting on the words of other successful people you
will gain insight into yourself, and the what, why, and how of your journey
to success will become more clear.
For myself, in putting this compilation together for you, I experienced many
of those “ah ha!” moments. You know, the ones where suddenly the light
comes on and you think to yourself, “Ah ha! It’s all clear to me now!”
Whatever success means to you, and wherever you are on your journey, it
is my sincere wish that this book provides you with an ah ha! moment or
two of your own.
