A Quote by Tom Szaky on entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship, business, and success

If you are at all successful in your business, be prepared to never have another good day or bad day at work. There will be so many things -- good and bad -- happening on any given day that you will be on a roller coaster of highs and lows. If that excites you, then go for it.

A Quote by Richard Wiseman on luck, serendipity, and success

Unlucky people are stuck in routines. When they see something new, they want no part of it. Lucky people always want something new. They're prepared to take risks and relaxed enough to see the opportunities in the first place.

A Quote by Stephen Shapiro on goals, myers-briggs, personality, success, and passion

One interesting thing I did was to predict people's Myers-Briggs type, if they didn't already know it. It was pretty interesting that nearly 100 percent of the successful goal-free people were Extroverted-Intuiter-Perceivers.

The people who were goal-free but not successful tend to be introverts. If you're not going to get out there and play big, and meet people and have fun, and really go full-out with passion and gusto, it's hard for you to allow things to come together in a synchronistic way. But the Judgers out there love their goals.

A Quote by Stephen Shapiro on goals, success, and direction

I do say there's a difference between being goal-free and goal-less. I'm definitely not an advocate of being goal-less, which is being lost and directionless, and sitting on your butt eating bon-bons, watching Jerry Springer. To me, goal-free is moving forward through life with purpose and passion, but not knowing how it's going to turn out. And not caring how it turns out, I guess, is probably even more important.

A Quote by Alexander Kjerulf on happiness, work, job, success, and branding

Being happy at your job is success. If you’re not happy with your job, then build a brand that reflects who you are and be recruited or start a company based on that.

A Quote by Jim Collins on will, humility, leadership, ceo, and success

The best CEOs in our research display tremendous ambition for their company combined with the stoic will to do whatever it takes, no matter how brutal (within the bounds of the company's core values), to make the company great. Yet at the same time they display a remarkable humility about themselves, ascribing much of their own success to luck, discipline and preparation rather than personal genius.

A Quote by Bill George on commitment, success, and customers

The bottom line is it is really important to be involved with your salespeople. CEO Anne Mulcahy has said she will go anywhere anytime to save a Xerox customer. That's the kind of engagement you have to have to be successful.

A Quote by Andrea Jung on leadership, passion, flexibility, success, and change

I think there is a big and significant difference between being a leader and being a manager-leaders lead from the heart. You have to be analytical and flexible. Flexibility is one of the key ingredients to being successful. If you feel like it's difficult to change, you will probably have a harder time succeeding.
