"My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other's kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people."
Steve Jobs

"It is sweeter trying something and failing, but it is more dangerous not trying at all."
Written in 2014 by Eze Patrick Nwabueze --- Nigeria
I would rather be in company of men who have had couple of failures than those who have never passed through life a failure. The former gives you resilience.

"The 'box' is just one avenue to pursue excellence in preparation. Training is hard. Life can be much harder. Start and/or finish your day by giving your mind and body the training to handle life's great obstacles."
Written in 2014 by Jason Swanson --- Texas
It came to me after reading a quote by Benjamin Franklin. I was inspired to make it work for the athletes at my gym. "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." - Benjamin Franklin

"Triumph is the collection of failures."
Written in 2013 by Luis Sanchez --- China
I am an avid follower and biography reader of famous successful individuals. Although the concept of success can be a subjective and contentious issue, I have found rare exceptions about the way these people have accomplished their dreams. They all had to overcome failures, hardships and a lot of discouragement even from friends or relatives who got to think that their ideas were "insane". But they endured and listened only to their "inner soul and voice" even when they had sometimes "lost" everything. Because they tried, and they "took again the risk of failing" they improved at what they knew they were good for. Let not disappointment, family problems, nor economical struggle be excuses to learn mostly from the tough times. "Normal" people stay stagnant because they continue doing what everyone else does and are afraid of taking the next step.

"Join the bold, the brazen, the unintimidated. Join not having excuses. Join the idea that fun is the source of all joy. Join the unwillingness to give up. Join doing things your way. Join not joining. Join that purpose is stronger than outcome. Join your gut. Join the constant challenge of seeking greatness. Join play. Join the hunger to find what makes you happy. Join karma and nature and the effect you have on your world. Join your philosophy. Join something bigger than you. Join what you believe."

"Every day that you do SOMETHING... Just know that you are AT LEAST one step closer to your goal."
Written in 2013 by William C. Merrick --- New Jersey

"Success can never be recognized without previous failures. Testimony is not sweet in the ear without the story of perseverance and resilience. Success comes when we don't stop, not when we stop."

To keep everyone going in spite of the hurdles.

"Whenever you feel low, just think about the good things that have happened to you in that time. You will realize that sadness is only for a short while."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Sharif Tusuubira --- Uganda
At the time while I was feeling low, thinking about the good things made me happy.

Don't set your life up to be a journey,
Set your life off as an Adventure.
Journeys have endings,
Adventures will last a lifetime.
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Jason Mei --- Illinois
It's my motto for my clients.

"The wheel of fate is always turning. Don't sit there and wait for it to stop. Get up and choose where it stops."

"Success is a three-step journey: Planning, execution and bridging the gap between them."
Written in 2013 by Nilesh Pampattiwar --- India

"Don't let your past failures deter you from your future success. Use them in the present as a tool to fuel your drive in reaching your dreams. I believe in you, but it will only work if you believe in yourself."
Written in 2013 by William Merrick --- New Jersey

"To overcome life challenges, you must get to a point of personal conviction that knows there's no alternative than to overcome them."
Written in 2013 by Benjamin Suulola --- Nigeria

"A champion does not fret when faced with challenges; he fights."
Written in 2013 by Sheye Hassan --- Nigeria

"All successful people, men and women, are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose."
Brian Tracy --- Submitted by George Wachirah --- Kenya
