Success

Two great quotes on success for your weekend:

This one arrived in my inbox yesterday:

"It is necessary to prepare and to plan so that we don’t fritter away our lives. Without a goal, there can be no real success. One of the best definitions of success I have ever heard goes something like this: success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. Someone has said the trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never cross the goal line." ~Thomas S. Monson

This one I heard at my 12-step meeting:

"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm." ~ Sir Winston Churchill

Well, there you go. Get out there and succeed!

You're blog is always so uplifting. I love the quotes!

Both are great quotes! I know personally that if I don't have a clear goal, then I don't have the motivation to work at all. That's why I constantly have "events" to train for...
