Colin Powell Quotes

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
– Colin Powell

Pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it!

And if there’s one man who knows what success is, it’s Colin Powell! Powell, as you may or may not know, was a four-star general in the United States Army, the 65th United States Secretary of State, and former National Security Advisor as Commander of the U.S. Army Forces Command and as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. So the man knows what success is!

And indeed, his words are spot on! Ask any successful man – someone who’s accomplished a thing or two in his career, he’ll pretty much echo Powell’s words. ‘Success’ isn’t really something that happens by chance or luck, success is a combination of being prepared, working hard (which for me, is the most important ingredient), and of course, using failure as a teacher and learning from it.

And that right there is the simple formula for success!
