The Secret to Success

"Some men give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; While others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before."   -  Herodotus

The success is not an accident. It is an event. It is history which you create with your powerful determination despite millions of failures. A man of whom all are aware, lived his life with adversity, but he constantly believed that he COULD achieve.

 • Failed in business at age 31
• Was defeated in a legislative race at age 32
• Failed again in business at age 34
• Overcome death of sweetheart at age 35
• Had a nervous breakdown at age 36
• Lost an election at age 38
• Lost a congressional race at age 43
• Lost a congressional race at age 46
• Lost a congressional race at age 48
• Lost a Senatorial race at age 55
• Failed to become Vice President at age 56
• Lost a Senatorial race at age 58
• Was elected President of the United States at age 60

With all the adversity that faced him, President Abraham Lincoln had no reason to continually try other than the fact that he believed it was his destiny and measure of success to accomplish this task. Yes, it is the determination, it is the passion, it is the fire which is needed to get going in life and that’s what makes life successful. What we need is constant and never-ending improvement. So believe that nothing stays better than change. What constantly remains alive and exists at all times is neither failure, nor success but change. It is change that remains, so if you are failed, change yourself into a successful man and if you are successful then beware of change, change yourself into more successful.
