There are days when we just don’t feel like we are capable of success. This is something experienced by many successful people along their journey.
The worst part of success is trying to find someone who is happy for you.
– Bette Midler
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.
I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.
– Abraham Lincoln
Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
– Henry David Thoreau
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.

Belief in oneself is one of the most important bricks in building any successful venture.

A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
– Bob Dylan
The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.
– Gustave Flaubert
To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
– Howard Zinn
Some aspects of success seem rather silly as death approaches.
– Donald A. Miller
Pray that success will not come any faster than you are able to endure it.
– Elbert Hubbard
The closer one gets to the top, the more one finds there is no “top.”

Quality questions create a quality life. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.
– Anthony Robbins
