The Relationship between Achievement and Success

Define the goal of success for yourself, getting there requires a series of achievements on your part.

 

“My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success.  She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you.  Success is being praised by others, and that’s nice, too, but not as important or satisfying.  Always aim for achievement and forget about success.”

~ Helen Hayes

    My goal of success looks quit simple. I wish to leave nice feedback…in foreign language. Is that possible? while we all enjoy the freedom and bow to wise sayings, empty pockets mean different thing in different countries – I am sure just for one- you are welcomed to my blog Arthiker http://arthiker.wordpress.com/ I would be glad to have the fellowship with you.

      I wish you success in the manner that you define it. I agree that empty pockets, and sayings, means different things in different countries. It is a wonderful benefit of blogging and the internet that we can cross these oceans, country boundaries and other barriers in order to come together ove ideas. Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment.
