Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
The starting point of all achievement is desire.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.

Theodore Isaac Rubin

Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.
C. S. Lewis
Having children is my greatest achievement. It was my saviour. It switched my focus from the outside to the inside. My children are gifts, they remind me of what's important.

What is the recipe for successful achievement? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients: Choose a career you love, give it the best there is in you, seize your opportunities, and be a member of the team.
Benjamin Franklin Fairless
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
Never mistake activity for achievement.
Spectacular achievement is always preceded by unspectacular preparation.
Robert H. Schuller
