Quote by Walter Lippmann on hard work

A quote by Walter Lippmann on hard work is the topic of this blog post.

“Industry is a better horse to ride than genius.” Walter Lippmann

“Genius is all well and good but nothing can take the place of what Walter Lippmann refers to in this quote as industry.  It is called various names by people such as hard work, persistence, perseverance and several others but I absolutely agree that industry is much more important than genius and will win out over genius every time.  I have learned from my own life experience that you can have all the intelligence in the world but if you do not put it to good use it will not do you much good.” Stan Burman

Quote by Horace on laziness and sloth

A quote by Horace on laziness and sloth is the topic of this blog post.

“You must avoid sloth, that wicked siren.” Horace

“This is an excellent quote by Horace. Sloth is to be avoided at all costs as nothing worthwhile has ever been accomplished by a lazy person. In order to achieve any level of success you have to put forth some effort. Only fools and idiots think they can accomplish something by being lazy and sitting around doing nothing.  I know that everything worthwhile that I have achieved so far in my life was achieved through the result of hard work, not by sitting around waiting for fortune to strike me like lightning.” Stan Burman

Quote by Chuck Norris on luck

A quote by Chuck Norris on luck is the topic of this blog post

“Whatever luck I had, I made. I was never a natural athlete, but I paid my dues in sweat and concentration and took the time necessary to learn karate and become world champion.” Chuck Norris

“This is an excellent quote by Chuck Norris. You have to make your own luck in life as I have learned from long and hard experience.  If you wait around for good luck to happen in your life you may well be old and gray by the time it arrives, if it ever does. I make no claim to be a genius but I know that my success so far in life has been due to making the most use of my natural intelligence, combining that with my love of reading and research, my years of experience in the legal field, and last but not least, my street smarts.  I have paid my dues as anyone who has accomplished anything worthwhile in life has done.” Stan Burman

Quote by Stephen King on the difference between a talented individual and a successful one

A quote by Stephen King on the difference between a talented individual and a successful one is the topic of this blog post.

“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.” Stephen King

“Great quote by Stephen King as I know from my own life experience that you can have all the talent in the world but if you do not work hard at using your talent correctly you are no better off than the person who works hard but has no talent. I know that some of my success is due to talent but much of my success is due to good old fashioned hard work. I started harnessing the power of hard work just over 5 years ago and the results have been spectacular. Everyone has some sort of talent. But few people are willing to work hard at putting it to good use.  Without hard work success is very hard to achieve.” Stan Burman

Quote by Harvey Mackay on inspiration

A quote by Harvey Mackay on inspiration is the topic of this blog post.

“Amateurs wait for inspiration. The real pros get up and go to work.” Harvey Mackay

“If you wait around for inspiration to appear you may be waiting for a very long time as true inspiration does not operate according to any set schedule. I know from my own life experiences that this quote by Harvey Mackay is true and that waiting for inspiration is not a good idea if you plan to achieve success in life. I have found that the best way to convince inspiration to appear is to get to work on something as that will stimulate your conscious mind which then stimulates your subconscious mind. Most inspiration starts in the subconscious mind and then works its way to the conscious mind.” Stan Burman

Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on ambition

A quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on ambition is the topic of this blog post.

“Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it. The man who knows how will always have a job. The man who also knows why will always be his boss.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“There is no such thing as a free lunch as so aptly stated by Milton Friedman. This quotation is right on the money!! So many people keep looking for the easy way to do this or that. Stop wasting your time looking for a way around having to work. Instead spend your time finding work that you know you are skilled at or can find the skills for and you will be much happier. I know how and as a result I have always had work for the last 25 years, at one job or another. I did not always make as much money as I wanted to, but I have always had a roof over my head. For over 11 years now I have mostly been my own boss which I am so thankful for.  I am working now on knowing why so that I can always be the boss. Read and take this quotation to heart folks. This should be on everyone’s Top 10 list of the most useful quotations ever!”  Stan Burman

Quote by Thomas Edison on genius.

A quote by Thomas Edison on genius is the topic of this blog post.

“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.” Thomas A. Edison

“If anyone has a right to define genius it is Thomas Edison.  Without all of that hard work and perspiration he would never have been responsible for so many wonderful inventions.  Yet so many people think that genius is all about inspiration when in many cases it is not. I do not claim to be a genius but I know for a fact that all of the success I have had in my life came about mainly though hard work with a little inspiration to finish the job.  Lets face it without hard work and perspiration to get your blood flowing you can hardly expect to come up with any inspiration.” Stan Burman
