Success, Achievement

There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.

As we advance in life we learn the limits of our abilities.

I cannot discover that anyone knows enough to say definitely what is and what is not possible.

I am looking for a lot of men who have an infinite capacity to not know what can't be done.

Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes shine to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas.

Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.

One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his greatest surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't.

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.

Money is like an arm or leg use it or lose it.

Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.

Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

 

 

If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person's point of view and see things from that person's angle as well as from your own.

Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.

Creating Customer Value

Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.

The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.

It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages.

Productivity, Efficiency

Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.

Don't find fault, find a remedy.

Competition is the keen cutting edge of business, always shaving away at costs.

There is one rule for industrialists and that is: make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.

The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.

I do not believe a man can ever leave his business. He ought to think of it by day and dream of it by night.
