Around 2 years ago I set up a business with a good friend of mine Dean Kirkland Vancouver WA resident like myself and a great business mind. During this time we have had some solid success in our Washington and Vancouver offices, and this year we are hoping to create even more success for the business.
Whenever I think about success, I always understand just how inspired one needs to be in order to achieve it, success most certainly comes from within and if you are driven and passionate, I believe that you will find success. To help me stay focussed I like to surround myself with motivational quotes and I wanted to share them with you to hopefully inspire you to reach for success too.
I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
—Leonardo da Vinci
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
“The best way to succeed is to have a specific Intent, a clear Vision, a plan of Action, and the ability to maintain Clarity. Those are the Four Pillars of Success. It never fails!”

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
“There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.”

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”
— Thomas J. Watson
“People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”
— Tony Robbins
“I never did anything worth doing by accident, nor did any of my inventions come indirectly through accident, except the phonograph. No, when I have fully decided that a result is worth getting, I go about it, and make trial after trial, until it comes.”
— Thomas Edison
