Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.

Leadership requires balance in our lives.
You are children of promise. I hope that you do not plan to be just common but that you plan to excel. There is no place in this world for mediocrity; we need to strive for perfection. You can obtain perfection in so many areas as you seek and work toward the goals you have established.
You have to realize where it is that you can better yourself. You can stay at that level…or you can do something further…[you need to] look at what the possibilities are, and not look at who’s the next best. In order to get to the top, you have to learn how to compete with yourself.”
Success is determined by what you are willing to sacrifice for it.
True success in this life comes in consecrating our lives — that is, our time and choices — to God’s purposes. In so doing, we permit Him to raise us to our highest destiny.
If there is any one secret to 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.
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
Those who wish to succeed must ask the right preliminary questions.
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.
