As the Nike ad says,


and to end off, I'll share my favourite thoughts on what is success....


"To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Inside each of us are powers so strong,
treasures so rich, possibilities so endless,
that to command them all to action
would change the history of the world."
- anon

A Hero In Every Heart
"The roots of true achievement lie in the will to
become the best that you can become."
- Harold Taylor

"Success to others may be apparent in what you DO; but
significance, meaning and purpose lies, then reveals itself
in what you ARE and BECOME down the 'river of life' - how
and the spirit with which you face, then overcome the daily
obstacles, the frequent trials and tribulations along the
often rocky path-way of life's magical and mysterious
Light your path brightly."

Submitter's Note:
Craig has been studing the human mind, the "secrets of success" and succcessful living for the past decade. This article is based on points from a most inspirational book by Napoleon Hill titled 'UNLIMITED SUCCESS' (publisher Melville Powers, US) . I am sharing the contents of this work in the spirit of encouraging and hopefully even inspiring those people, who really want to "achieve unlimited success" to read the book...and just GO FOR IT with all you've got.

Thank you sincerely, Mr Hill for sharing your words of wisdom in encouraging me to follow my "untrodden path" with passion and reach for my personal dreams. I WILL UNTIL.

"I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail, than try doing something ordinary and succeed."
- Norman Vincent Peale

"Our Greatest Good is perhaps not to achieve wealth and share our material possessions, our money and 'riches' with others, but through encouragement and faith in other people, to lay the firm foundation of revealing the rich treasure that lies within themselves.
Perhaps that is true success in life."
