5 Most Inspiring Motivational Quotes From Highly Successful People
Everyone dreams of becoming successful but only few are ready to take the challenge and make great things happen. Success, though possible, is never easy as there are no shortcuts or overnight triumphs. It takes time, effort, and even the perfect chance to make things work for you and your plans.
So when you think you’ve already done your best and it seems like giving up, get your drive back by taking it straight from the wisdom and experiences of the following highly successful people. What they’ve gone through weren’t actually easy but the fruits of their labor and hard work were, in fact, the sweetest.
1. Albert Einstein
Two of the best quotes that we could take from this genius are as follows:
“Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.”
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.”
Being one of the pillars of physics, Einstein is best known in popular culture for his significant mass-energy equivalence formula, E = mc2, which has been dubbed as “the world’s most famous equation”. Whatever he contributed to math, science, and physics, has surely benefitted the entire race, generation to generation.
2. Henry Ford
“The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.”
One of America’s top industrialists, Ford founded Ford Motor Company and was the sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production, creating a line of automobile that the middle-class Americans then could afford. It was his destiny so he did everything to pursue it.
3. Steve Jobs
“You can’t connect the dots by looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust into something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
Believing that he was not created to be easy on people but to make their lives easier, Jobs worked his way to reach his goals by not giving up. He remained focused to whatever he thought would make his ideas a success.
His motivation and determination to achieve lots of things in his ventures are really contagious. As a matter of fact, many entrepreneurs, including the millennials, look up to him and patterning their habits to those of Jobs’ when he was still alive.
4. Walt Disney
“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Every child has a Disney story to tell and each fellow surely loves a Disney character. You wouldn’t believe how Walt Disney started his ventures. Life was, in fact, tough and cruel to him at first as he, just like anyone of us, experienced rejection and failure for several times. There were only very few people who had confidence on his ideas.
Did you know that he once got fired from a job due to his lacking of creative and original ideas? But he didn’t let those painful memories got into his way. He was determined and passionate about his masterpieces, thanks to Mickey Mouse and other Disney animals for giving his “name” the fame and the fortune he truly deserves.
5. Thomas A. Edison
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
America’s greatest inventor, Thomas Edison perhaps wanted to inspire everyone to value the words: Never give up. One of the problems many people have is that they just give up too soon. Most of us tend to fall into trap easily that we seem to overthink that there’s such a quick fix to anything and everything. But that shouldn’t be the case, we’ve got to try harder and if it is really something that we want, we’ll find a way to make it work, because if it isn’t, we’ll surely find an excuse.
The Iceberg Theory of Success
As they say, if you don’t believe in yourself, no one will. Remember that you can do amazing things in your life simply because you think you can. The infographic below is an incredible reminder that will let you realize how important it is to do “whatever it takes” if you aim to succeed.
Icebergs have two parts: What people see (above the surface) and what people don’t see (below the surface). So every time you get mesmerized by someone’s success, know that he or she has paid all the “costs” just to get there. Each dream has its own cost, you just have to be ready to pay for it to succeed. Now, if you dare to make a difference, prepare to shine!
