SUCCESS QUOTES BY DR. BEN CARSON

Success is not without passion to succeed. Dr. Ben Carson, the world’s best neurosurgeon almost failed, but he turned his life around with the passion to succeed. You can succeed if you really want to. Read the following quotes by him for it can make a difference in your life;

  • “Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.”
  • “Successful people don’t have fewer problems. They have determined that nothing will stop them from going forward.”
  • “Tell the truth. If you tell the truth all the time you don’t have to worry three months down the line about what you said three months earlier. Truth is always the truth. You won’t have to complicate your life by trying to cover up.”
  • “God has given us more than fourteen billion cells and connections in our brain. Why would God give us such a complex organ system unless he expects us to use it?”
  • “To THINK BIG and to use our talents doesn’t mean we won’t have difficulties along the way. We will–we all do. If we choose to see the obstacles in our path as barriers, we stop trying. “We can’t win,” we moan. “They won’t let us win.”
  • “Here is the treasure chest of the world – the public library, or a bookstore.”
  • “It does not matter where we come from or what we look like. If we recognize our abilities, are willing to learn and to use what we know in helping others, we will always have a place in the world.”
  • If you hear how wonderful you are often enough, you begin to believe it, no matter how you try to resist it.”
  • “Knowledge is the key that unlocks all the doors. You can be green-skinned with yellow polka dots and come from Mars, but if you have knowledge that people need instead of beating you, they’ll beat a path to your door.”
  • “Reading activates and exercises the mind.
    Reading forces the mind to discriminate. From the beginning, readers have to recognize letters printed on the page; make them into words, the words into sentences, and the sentences into concepts. Reading pushes us to use our imagination and makes us more creatively inclined.”
  • “If we recognize our talents and use them appropriately, and choose a field that uses those talents, we will rise to the top of our field.”
  • “First, we cannot overload the human brain. This divinely created brain has fourteen billion cells. If used to the maximum, this human computer inside our heads could contain all the knowledge of humanity from the beginning of the world to the present and still have room left over. Second, not only can we not overload our brain – we also know that our brain retains everything. I often use saying that “The brain acquires everything that we encounter.” The difficulty does not come with the input of information, but getting it out. Sometimes we “file” information randomly of little importance, and it confuses us.”
  • “Anyone who can’t learn from other people’s mistakes simply can’t learn, and that’s all there is to it. There is value in the wrong way of doing things. The knowledge gained from errors contributes to our knowledge base.”
  • “If we would spend on education half the amount of money that we currently lavish on sports and entertainment, we could provide complete and free education for every student in this country.”
  • “I am convinced that knowledge is power – to overcome the past, to change our own situations, to fight new obstacles, to make better decisions.”
  • “…I became acutely aware of an unusual ability–a divine gift, I believe–of extraordinary eye and hand coordination. It’s my belief that God gives us all gifts, special abilities that we have the privilege of developing to help us serve Him and humanity. And the gift of eye and hand coordination has been an invaluable asset in surgery. This gift goes beyond eye-hand coordination, encompassing the ability to understand physical relationships, to think in three dimensions. Good surgeons must understand the consequences of each action, for they’re often not able to see what’s happening to see on the other side of the area in which the area they’re actually working.”
  • “People are simply not willing to look at their problems honestly and admit that they have problems.”
  • “When we are confronted by failure and mistakes, we can leave them behind and go on with our lives.”
  • “If we make every attempt to increase our knowledge in order to use it for human good, it will make a difference in us and in our world.”
