Success Quotes |
I believe that the true road to preeminent success in any line is to make yourself master of that line.
And here is the prime condition of success, the great secret: concentrate your energy, thought, and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having begun in one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it; adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it.
Concentration is my motto – first honesty, then industry, then concentration.
