Top Personal Accomplishments Quotes

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Simone De Beauvoir

Being on the fringes of the world is not the best place for someone who intends to re-create it: here again, to go beyond the given, one must be deeply rooted in it. Personal accomplishments are almost impossible in human categories collectively kept in an inferior situation. — Simone De Beauvoir

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Ben Sasse

Wealthy societies, for reasons largely well-intentioned but now producing unintended consequences, are making it easier for their teens to avoid the rigors and responsibilities of becoming a grown-up. Arnett calls those years the "self-focused age," when there are few real responsibilities, few "daily obligations," limited "commitments to others." In a stage when young people were once supposed to learn to "stand alone as a self-sufficient person," they find themselves increasingly paralyzed by over-choice. There are nearly unlimited personal-social options yet too few concrete work-related accomplishments. A — Ben Sasse

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By J.M. Orend

Late-blooming success can be complicated. As people age, they are more likely to judge their accomplishments on their own terms; however, late bloomers often use the benefits of broader acknowledgment and publicity to help them meet their personal and professional goals. — J.M. Orend

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Marvin J. Ashton

Peace-not passion, not personal possessions, not personal accomplishments nor happiness-is one of the greatest blessings a man can receive. — Marvin J. Ashton

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Raul Ramos Y Sanchez

Even wondered about the difference?

Memoir: The usually self-serving accounts of someone whose only accomplishments are often self-pity and vindictiveness. — Raul Ramos Y Sanchez

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Bob Cousy

The MVP award was very satisfying in terms of personal accomplishments, but the championship was the most important thing of all. — Bob Cousy

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Marketing is bad manners - and I rely on my naturalistic and ecological instincts. Say you run into a person during a boat cruise. What would you do if he started boasting of his accomplishments, telling you how great, rich, tall, impressive, skilled, famous, muscular, well educated, efficient, and good in bed he is, plus other attributes? You would certainly run away (or put him in contact with another talkative bore to get rid of both of them). It is clearly much better if others (preferably someone other than his mother) are the ones saying good things about him, and it would be nice if he acted with some personal humility. — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Anyaele Sam Chiyson

Anyaele Sam Chiyson's Law of Objectivity States that You must be aware of who you are and your ability to do all things right by yourself and have all things turn out well for you, without distortion through personal feelings, prejudices or interpretations in order to make your mark in a way that is free from any subjective preference. — Anyaele Sam Chiyson

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Tom Osborne

Is success just about winning? Acclaim? Trophies? Wealth? Our personal happiness or satisfaction? I have been blessed to experience some of these over the years, and I can answer without batting an eye: No. Accomplishments, applause, awards and fortune are rewards that often come as the result of hard work and a determined spirit, but there is something bigger. Something better. Something that will outlast the winningest season, the plushest corner office, the heftiest bonus and the loudest cheers. That something can only be found when we look beyond the final score. — Tom Osborne

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

Most people, myself included, really want to be liked - and not just because it feels good. Being liked is also a key factor in both professional and personal success. A willingness to make an introduction or advocate for or promote someone depends upon having positive feelings about that person. We need to believe in her ability to do the job and get along with everyone while doing it. That's why, instinctively, many of us feel pressure to mute our accomplishments. — Sheryl Sandberg

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Seneca.

Life is long and there is enough of it for satisfying personal accomplishments if we use our hours well. — Seneca.

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Laura Fraser

I am realizing that intention has a lot to do with how things turn out, and accomplishments don't always have to involve such a difficult personal fight or campaign. So, too, how you tell your story has a great deal to do with how you feel about the circumstances in your life and which direction your story is going to go in. — Laura Fraser

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

Mentorships, similar to other important relationships, usually end. Ideological differences and a need to chart a personal path might preclude parties from maintaining the original balance that stabilized a mentoring relationship. Conflict between an apprentice and his master is not always bad; in fact, it is almost inevitable, if the apprentice's destiny is to exceed the accomplishments of the master. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Christiane Nusslein-Volhard

It is very important for me to be taken seriously for my science and not for my looks or other personal accomplishments. — Christiane Nusslein-Volhard

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Joseph Bruchac

The best teachers have showed me that things have to be done bit by bit. Nothing that means anything happens quickly
we only think it does. The motion of drawing back a bow and sending an arrow straight into a target takes only a split second, but it is a skill many years in the making. So it is with a life, anyone's life. I may list things that might be described as my accomplishments in these few pages, but they are only shadows of the larger truth, fragments separated from the whole cycle of becoming. And if I can tell an old-time story now about a man who is walking about, waudjoset ndatlokugan, a forest lodge man, alesakamigwi udlagwedewugan, it is because I spent many years walking about myself, listening to voices that came not just from the people but from animals and trees and stones. — Joseph Bruchac

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Adele Faber

Take two kids in competition for their parents' love and attention. Add to that the envy that one child feels for the accomplishments of the other; the resentment that each child feels for the privileges of the other; the personal frustrations that they don't dare let out on anyone else but a brother or sister, and it's not hard to understand why in families across the land, the sibling relationship contains enough emotional dynamite to set off rounds of daily explosions. — Adele Faber

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Accomplishment of your dreams demand personal sacrifice and hard work. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Zoe Sugg

We all have one life and we can choose how we want to live it. It's important you realize that, no matter what anyone else says or how people may try to influence things, it's ultimately down to you... only YOU can live for you. You can't live in someone else's shadow or permanently try to please someone else, then what do you have to show for it? You won't have any of your own accomplishments, you won't reach your personal goals, and you'll only be ticking someone else's boxes for them. If there is something in life that you really want to do, then do it. You'll only ever live this day once in your lifetime, so start now. — Zoe Sugg

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Joe Girard

Selling yourself does not mean boasting about your accomplishments but rather demonstrating security in your goals and your lifestyle so your "customers" feel success and want to emulate it — Joe Girard

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Vince Lombardi

The only true satisfaction a player receives is the satisfaction that comes from being part of a successful team, regardless of his personal accomplishments. — Vince Lombardi

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By John Thorn

We know these men are professionals whose services are up for bid and whose bags are packed, and yet we call them our own and take personal, even civic pride in their accomplishments. — John Thorn

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Christine Caine

Settling for what is comfortable is one of the biggest enemies to our enlargement ... In every season of life ... we need to be committed to enlarging our personal capacity (even when it's not comfortable). We need to refuse to be satisfied with our latest accomplishments, as what we've accomplished is no longer our potential because it has been realized. — Christine Caine

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Barack Obama

I honor, we honor the service of John McCain, and I respect his many accomplishments, even if he chooses to deny mine. My differences with him are not personal; they are with the policies he has proposed in this campaign. — Barack Obama

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Amy Morin

Developing mental strength isn't about having to be the best at everything. It also isn't about earning the most money or achieving the biggest accomplishments. Instead, developing mental strength means knowing that you'll be okay no matter what happens. Whether you're facing serious personal problems, a financial crisis, or a family tragedy, you'll be best prepared for whatever circumstances you encounter when you're mentally strong. Not only will you be ready to deal with the realities of life, but you'll be able to live according to your values no matter what life throws your way. When — Amy Morin

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Gretchen Rubin

Challenge: we find personal meaning in pursuing a goal that's difficult but not impossible. Curiosity: we're intrigued and find pleasure in learning more. Control: we like the feeling of mastery. Fantasy: we play a game; we use our imagination to make an activity more stimulating. Cooperation: we enjoy the satisfaction of working with others. Competition: we feel gratified when we can compare ourselves favorably to others. Recognition: we're pleased when others recognize our accomplishments and contributions. — Gretchen Rubin

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

Our most intense joy comes not from personal feats, but from helping other persons achieve their goals. We become suppler human beings when we find true joy in witnessing other people's successes and unabashedly share in their joyful accomplishments. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Wilkie Collins

Our capacity of appreciating the beauties of the earth we live on is, in truth, one of the civilised accomplishments which we all learn, as an Art; and, more, that very capacity is rarely practised by any of us except when our minds are most indolent and most unoccupied. How much share have the attractions of Nature ever had in the pleasurable or painful interests and emotions of ourselves or our friends? What space do they ever occupy in the thousand little narratives of personal experience which pass every day by word of mouth from one of us to the other? All that our minds can compass, all that our hearts can learn, can be accomplished with equal certainty, equal profit, and equal satisfaction to ourselves, in the poorest as in the richest prospect that the face of the earth can show. — Wilkie Collins

Personal Accomplishments Quotes By Amy Carmichael

If I do not forget about such a trifle as personal success, so that it never crosses my mind, or if it does, is never given a moment's room there; if the cup of spiritual flattery tastes sweet to me, then I know nothing of Calvary love. Be unanimous among yourselves, not high minded, but accommodating the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion (Romans 12:16). Let my so-called accomplishments slip from my mind that I may not be tempted to think higher of myself than I ought. Help me learn to forget about myself and my accomplishments. — Amy Carmichael
