successHappiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort. Franklin D. Roosevelt Previous Post The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way. Next Post If you wish to succeed in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius. Life affords no higher pleasure than that of surmounting difficulties, passing from one step of success to another, forming new wishes and seeing them gratified. The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well, and doing well whatever you do without thought of fame. If it comes at all it will come because it is deserved, not because it is sought after. The best augury of a man’s success in his profession is that he thinks it the finest in the world. The envious man grows lean at the success of his neighbor. Success is not built on success. It’s built on failure. It’s built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe. No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude. Each success only buys an admission ticket to a more difficult problem. Within the hearts men, loyalty and consideration are esteemed greater than success. The success I have achieved in bodybuilding, motion pictures, and business would not have been possible without the generosity of the American people and the freedom here to pursue your dreams.
