See success

Those who achieve success are those who can see success, and who act on what they see. There is success in a cold, dreary day, for the person who can see the need for overcoats and firewood, and then supply them to people who want to stay warm.

There is success in the irate customer, for the person who can see the cause of the problem and solve it. There is success in disaster, for the person who can see the way to rebuild and to learn from past mistakes.

Success is everywhere for the making, if only you can see it. In every situation is the seed for success. Successful people don’t wait for the situation to improve. And they don’t complain about it. They simply take action to improve the situation.

Success, achievement and greatness come from the belief in, and the commitment to, improving the world around you. When you set out looking for ways to make the world a better place, what you find... is success.

— Ralph Marston
