How much success have you passed up by not giving just 1% more?

Success is not determined by the opinions of others. There is no ruler that measures success, nor will there ever be, or has there ever been. Success is not determined by how hard you think you have worked, how early you rise, or how late you retire.

Success is not purchased, it is not negotiated, it is not given to you, it is not taught, and it is not inherited. The dictionary defines success as the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors but even that is not success.

Failure is not the race that is lost, the test that is failed, or the relationship that ends. As with success, there is no ruler that has been made to gauge failure. Failure is also not determined by the opinions of others and failure is not what you think of yourself when you look in the mirror.

Lastly, failure is not the antithesis of success. Success is defined by 100% effort in your own mind and failure is defined by 99% effort in your own mind.
