Have you ever been in the middle of a difficult time and suddenly hear or see something that was exactly what you needed at exactly the right time? As if the Universe was speaking directly to you?

I’ve put together my favorite quotes about success that will hopefully serve as that sign from the Universe for someone out there struggling right now.

It’s interesting how the same words can mean different things at different times simply based on how you’re feeling. As Henry David Thoreau says,

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. – Henry David Thoreau”

I keep a list of my favorite quotes about success handy and reflect on it from time to time when I need an extra shot of inspiration

Here’s 16 of my favorite quotes about success to help jump start your day.

Inspirational Quotes to Help You Have the Right Mindset for Success

“Your life doesn’t get better by chance. It gets better by change.” – Jim Rohn

Only you are in control of your destiny. No one else. Start taking the actions needed to get the results you want. The results aren’t just going to happen on their own.  

“You can’t turn a negative mindset into positive actions.”- Unknown 

If you think you can’t then you won’t. If you think you can then you will. Empower yourself with positive thoughts and the positive actions will follow.  

“Your past does not equal your future unless you decide to live there.” – Tony Robbins

Let go of the past. Your past does not have any determination on your future unless you allow it to.

“Failure is an event, not a person.” – Zig Ziglar

You have failed, but you are not a failure. Successful people experience many failures on their pathway to success. The average millionaire goes bankrupt at least 3.5 times in their life.  

“Water the flowers, not the weeds.”- Fletcher Peacock

We spend more time watering our weeds with our thoughts than watering our flowers. Then we get upset about why our weeds have grown. Focusing your attention on the positive will attract more positive things into your life, but focusing on the negatives will bring more negatives.

“Train your mind. Your body will follow.” – unknown

Success starts from within. Everything you need to succeed is inside of you. Get in the right mindset and the results will follow.

“Let go and let God.” – unknown

Your life will never go exactly as you planned. It’s important to remember that God’s plan is bigger than your own. You may not see it right now but the struggle you’re experiencing may be helping you get to a better place.

Inspirational Quotes to Help You Stay Focused on Your Goals

“A man is what he thinks about all day long.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you stay laser focused on your goals long enough eventually they will manifest into reality.

“A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.” – Chinese proverb

Don’t stress about how far along you are or how long it will take.  It doesn’t matter how far others are on their journey. No matter the distance ahead every journey begins by taking that first step.

Inspirational Quotes to Help on Money and Investing

“Don’t save what’s left over after spending, spend what’s left after saving.” – Warren Buffett

Have your priorities in order. Invest first, spend second. Not the other way around. That way eventually your investments will make enough money to pay for all of your expenses.

“Don’t trip over a dollar trying to pick up a dime.” – unknown

Always remember the bigger picture. Don’t get caught in the small things that you forget the big things.

Inspirational Quotes on Not Giving Up

“You’ve survived 100% of your bad days up until this point.” – unknown

Think about the most difficult days you’ve experienced in your life. You’ve survived every one of those. The difficulty you’re experiencing today will be no different.

“You grow through what you go through.” – Tyrese Gibson

Just like your muscles, the only way for you to get stronger is by being broken down first. Every challenge you face is helping you to grow into the person that you need to be.

“Your struggle today is your story tomorrow.” – unknown

If you wrote a book on your own life, what would you write about? Probably a lot about the many struggles you’ve overcome. The struggles you’re dealing with today will just be another small chapter of the story you tell tomorrow.

“Smooth seas do not make for skillful sailors.” – African proverb 

The only way to learn to navigate through storms is by going through storms. There is no instruction manual – you just have to experience them yourself. The most skilled sailors seek out the biggest storms just as avid surfers seek out the biggest waves. It’s the only way to get better.

“In my life I’ve failed 90% of the time. But that doesn’t matter. Because all you have to be is right once.” – unknown

All successful people fail over and over in life. Babe Ruth struck out over 1,300 times. Picasso is known for over 100 masterpieces but he created over 50,000 works of art. Ravio, the angry birds developer, created 51 games that were unsuccessful before creating Angry Birds.

The great thing about business is you can fail over and over but just have to get it right once to succeed. And when you do no one will care about your past failures.

Final Thoughts

Everyone fails at something at some point. Even successful people have face challenges – many of the same ones you’re facing right now. Challenges are just speed bumps on the path to accomplishing incredible things.

I hope some of these quotes can be a positive influence to get you in the right mindset to take you where you need to go.

    Hello Dhar & Laura!😘❤️ I live in Glendale and although my dream vacation would be Greece 🇬🇷 I would have to say a reasonable destination would be Alaska. My husband and I never went on a honeymoon due to work and health related issues. He felt bad about it and told me that wen though we hadn’t gone on a honeymoon that we would go on small trips in the future and call them manymoon trips lol. We have been together 14 years and married 4 of those years. The last four have been challenging in both health and Finances and we have yet to go on a honeymoon or start our plans for the manymoon trips. With the $1000 we would be able to kickstart our manymoom trips (won’t be enough for a dream trip, but it’s more than enough for a small getaway). Also, I would favorite trip you guys went to would be Mykonos 👌🏼. Thank you to the both of you for this great giveaway. 🤞🏼💕

    I would LOVE to take my boyfriend on our dream trip to Canada. He talks about going to Canada literally every single day. My boyfriend is one of the best people on this planet. I don’t know where i would be without him. Since we were sophomores in high school I lived with him because my family was having a lot of money issues and had to move into a one bedroom hotel with my mom, step dad, brother and sister. so there was obviously no room for me. Throughout all I was going through at the time with my family’s money problems, my boyfriend was MY ROCK. I couldn’t possibly ask for someone more loving and supportive. even though we were only 15 him and his family took me in. ever since he has given me everything I could ever want. We are now 21 and are juniors in college! We are definitely broke college students. We were already saving literally every penny to try to go to canada the second week of march, but my car broke down and had to use what we saved to fix it. He supports me so much with everything I do, emotionally and financially. I would love to be able to give something to him for once. who knows where i would be without him. If i could just do ONE thing for him, I would be so greatful. I love yalls relationship, it is definitely one to look up too. y’all are literally the ultimate goals. Even if I don’t win i’m greatful for the opportunity!! Love y’all!!
    my favorite tip from Dhar is ENGAGE with your followers! y’all do so much to engage with your supporters and trust me everyone appreciates it!!

    Hi you guys! Thankyou for doing this generous giveaway, I have so much respect for you guys for giving back, especially when you go out and prepare food for the homeless, you guys are awesome. For the vacation giveaway I would like to nominate my mom. We are here in California. Ever since i could remember, my mom has been my rock. She raised me and my brother all by herself. She would find work cleaning houses, laundrymats, selling food, finding any type of way to keep a roof over our head and keeping food on the table. She made sure we had clean and when possible new clothes, while she shopped at second hand stores for herself. Me and my brother began working at 15 in fast food to help her and now i am thankful to god that we are able to show our appreciation for everything she did for us by taking care of her. I dont know where she would like to go, but i can say this..she loves the water and is the most grateful person i know, and she would be eternally grateful to you guys for gifting her a trip. (Thanks again you two, love u)
    Ps. Dhar i think your buzzfeed article was on point. My favorite advice you gave for influencers starting out is to stick to one area of expertise. I say that because theres lots of pages out there that have too much content of different subjects and it definitely will lose a viewers interest if they came on to your page looking for one subject that caught their attention and they get a load of bunch of unrelated content. So great advice!
