No one is a born winner or achiever. Pick a name from the known history including the best elite class of mankind, the Prophets & Messengers chosen by The Almighty God. Every achiever, every leader, every inventor, every scientist had to pass through hardships of life to succeed in achieving his / her goals.

Every achievement demands its price and those who are willing and determined to pay through the nose are bestowed with the honour of tasting success. There are no shortcuts to success. However, genius, wise and intelligent people and social reformers have laid down some principles and rules, after having crossed the stormy waters, which could be used as power tools to steer you to destiny.

Success has a variety of different meanings to different individuals. Here are some famous quotes on success :

What Is Success? by Ralph Waldo Emerson :-

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To give of one's self; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

Doing What You Love

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. - Albert Schweitzer

Following Your Own Path

A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one’s own path, not chasing after the dreams of others. - Chin-Ning Chu

Living Each Moment

Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed. - Corita Kent

Overcoming Obstacles

Success is not measured by what a man accomplishes, but by the opposition he has encountered and the courage with which he has maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds. - Charles Lindbergh

Treating People Well

Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people — your family, friends, and co-workers, and even strangers you meet along the way. - Barbara Bush

Excelling in Multiple Areas of Your Life

I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles. - Zig Ziglar

Doing Your Best

The man who has done his level best, and who is conscious that he has done his best, is a success, even though the world may write him down as a failure. - B.C. Forbes

Seeking and Finding Love

The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration. - Pearl S. Buck

Leaving the World a Better Place

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal. - Albert Pike

Success is Many Things

To laugh often and much;To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.This is to have succeeded. - Bessie Stanley

To me success is a deep emotion of satisfaction for an accomplishment of a desire which was not intended to hurt or humiliate any other person or to deprive him of his joy.

However, in whatever words or expressions you define success, one thing is definite that no one can succeed until he / she thinks SUCCEEDED.

The sole purpose of creating this blog is to arouse an awareness in today's young men and women about discovering their true SELF, equipping them with the power tools of Personal Growth, Self Improvement, Personality Development, Positive Thinking, Character Building and developing a clear Vision to determine the right Direction. It all gathers up to help them choose their goals carefully and go into action to achieve them.

Our youth have no lesser talent, potential or ability, both in quality and quantity, than those of other regions of the world. They just need mentoring and appropriate coaching which is the basic aim of Think SUCCEEDED.

I'm sanguine young college students and aspiring executives would take the One Big STEP of changing their pattern of thinking as a challenge. The bigger the challenge the most prestigious the award.

So, my young friends! Stop saying '' I can '' or '' I will '' and start saying " I am " simply by Thinking SUCCEEDED.

Allah bless you with success, peace of mind, health, achievement of goals, fulfilment of dreams and prosperity.
