Friday Wisdom – Success

There’s absolutely no reason I pick success for this week – just seemed like there is a lot of wisdom here:

If winners never quit and quitters never win, what idiot came up with, “quit while you’re ahead.”

Remember that the road to success is always under construction.

If at first you don’t succeed – skydiving is not for you.

Behind every successful student is a deleted Facebook account.

The two basic rules of success: First, don’t tell everything you know …

Tip of the week for entrepreneurs: The flower business is blooming.

I once found the key to success, but then they changed the lock.

Product idea: Transparent coffins … Will it be a success? remains to be seen.

Sad news, the Olympic ice skater died after her trophy cabinet fell on her. She was a victim of her success.

The new herbal commuter train is a big success – all the trains run on thyme.

and this just in: The man who invented knock-knock jokes just won the no bell prize.

  2. Seems the first half of these are words of wisdom/good advice while the second half are funny. But all are entertaining. 🙂

    My vote goes to the skydiving pun (and I’ll never try skydiving anyway, let alone go up in a small plane).

  4. “I once found the key to success, but then they changed the lock.”
    YES!
    I think the lock gets changed once a month (at least).
    Someone once told me that I had a fear of success.
    Of course. Because if I don’t succeed then I have failed.
    That means the fear of success is also a fear of failure, doesn’t it?
    Fear is fear.
    Same, same.

    That is your best Friday yet, by quite a margin!
    If you’ve heard of Rick Wakeman, he had a motto of “Success is buried in the Garden of Failure” and, as an ex-teacher, I had that slogan on my classroom wall for many years. It stopped so many kids from worrying about having to achieve immediate success.
