“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Albert Schweitzer
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” – Pele
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” – Helen Keller
Today’s theme is about success, started off by Albert Schweitzer. His suggestion is that success is only possible when you love what you are doing. This is true because if you love what you are doing, work will not be work to you, but play.
Pele concurs with Schweitzer but adds the hard work involved in being successful. These quotes support one another because the only ones that will persevere, learn, study, sacrifice and work hard are those that love what they are doing. It is impossible to be as successful at something if you do not love what you are doing.
Helen Keller rounds out our quotes today by addressing real wisdom. We never improve when things are easy–we only improve when things are tough–when we are being challenged–when we are down.
The people that impress me the most are those that are really going through it and still have a cheery disposition while refusing to quit. These people are the ones that grow, succeed, and push forward.
See you again tomorrow…
