I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know the secret of life (I wish I did) so I turned to successful people through the ages who provided quotes about the secret of life and the secret of success to create this post.
The Secret to Changing Your Life
“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates
Think of how many times you’ve railed and fought against the circumstances of your life. It’s so easy to get caught up in where we are, that we don’t see the possibilities that could happen if we just expand the perimeter, shift our focus, or open up the box and think outside of it.
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of success is found in your daily routine.” – Author unknown
The Secret to Changing Your Future
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain
It’s normal to want assurance of a positive outcome before you start something. The problem with waiting is, we don’t get guarantees about how life is going to go. The best we can do is get ready, psychologically, without overthinking so much the opportunity is lost.
“Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.” – Henry Ford
The Secret Value of Uncertainty
The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine. – Mike Murdock
Almost everyone falls into a routine where the same things happen, in the same order, day in and day out. It’s really rare that anyone breaks out of a routine that isn’t working by sticking with the routine. It’s when you start to make changes in your routine that you start to see changes.
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware. – Martin Buber
Don’t worry if you don’t know how it’ll turn out. If you aren’t satisfied, just start, even if you start small in making routine changes, it’s progress, and if one approach doesn’t work, be like a GPS; recalculate, then go another direction.
No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit. – Helen Keller
The Secret of Using Your Inner Values
Don’t let your special character and values, the secret that you know and no one else does, the truth – don’t let that get swallowed up by the great, chewing complacency. – Aesop
