The best quotes about students success.
Success can be defined differently depending on how we view it. Some people measure success through financial achievements. While others view it as the height of professional attainment. But no matter how you define it, success always has common ingredients – hard work.
Success in school, like in any area of life, is not easy. Students who are willing to embrace hardship and challenges are the ones who get there.
Because academic success is hard, only a few students achieve academic excellence or graduated with honor. It is a human tendency to avoid challenges. In fact, we all tend to hate problems in our daily life experiences. As a result, we strive to make our life easier.
But attaining any kind of success needs hard work which to most people is painful. Motivation is a key to go beyond the limit that your mind has set for you. Yes, your limit is what you think it is. Crossing that line requires a tremendous amount of motivation.
When I was a student, I became fascinated with motivational quotes from successful people. They made me not only more motivated but also stronger. If you are a student who is looking for motivational words, you are in the right place.
In this post, I will share with you my favorite quotes about students success. I hope that this list will ignite that fire inside you.
So let’s get started.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Herman Cain
This is one of the most meaningful motivational quotes to me. Indeed, doing what you love makes you motivated to achieve that goal regardless of how difficult it is. If you are a student, you need to ask yourself if you really love your college course. If not, you can always change it. Doing the things that you don’t love doing may seem a burden to you. Sooner or later you’ll lose motivation. Steve Jobs stated that you should follow your passion. Because if you are not passionate about something you will not be able to endure it.
“Action is the fundamental key to success.” – Pablo Picasso
This quote is not only for students but also for everyone. A lot of us are amazed by the successful person (e.g. sports champions) become what she/he is now. But seldom have we asked how they get there. Well, success is not a luck. It is an outcome of hard work or action. Like Picasso, Jordan, and many successful people had spent a tremendous amount of time in practice. The action is the primary component of success. Talent or intelligence is secondary.
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.” – Vince Lombardi
This is not only the best quotes about students success but to all people’s success. You have to be willing to get there. Without a will, a dream or a goal remains beyond your reach.
“Preparation is the key to success.” – Alexander Graham Bell
Cramming is absolutely futile. If you want to achieve your academic goal, you need to be prepared. And the best preparation starts at the very beginning of the semester. What I mean by this is that as soon as your teacher gives you readings, start reading like the exam is fast approaching. This will help you a lot. The brain cannot attend to multiple information at one time. Reading or studying in advance helps you remember the information more easily.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas A. Edison
Success in school is never easy. Most students just give up along the way that’s why they failed. If you have a wonderful goal, you have to cling to it no matter what. You will only fail if you give up.
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy
Success comes with failure. So the key to success is the willingness to fail. Most people never attain success because they are afraid to lose. You should not follow others’ path. Make your own. Don’t be afraid.
“Success is a ladder that cannot be climbed with your hand in your pocket.” – Mark Caine
Goals and plans are both tantalizing. But in order to materialize them, you have to get your hands dirty. You need to get there and involved yourself in the process. There is no free success.
There you go. I hope that this simple list of quotes about students success will help you stay motivated throughout your academic journey. I don’t believe in luck. But I believe in your potentials.
