This is to have succeeded." Ralph Waldo Emerson "Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom." Euripides "Success has a simple formula: do your best, and people may like it."

Failures are influenced by the desire for pleasing methods and are inclined to be satisfied with such results as can be obtained by doing things they like to do.

Rockefeller "The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do. They don't like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose." E.M. Gray "The problem with most failing businesses is not that their owners don?t know enough about finance, marketing, management, and operations -- they don?t, but those things are easy enough to learn -- but that they spend their time and energy defending what they think they know. My experience has shown me that the people who are exceptionally good in business aren?t so because of what they know but because of their insatiable need to know more." Michael Gerber
