Jay Z quotes on success and more

10."I’m hungry for knowledge. The whole thing is to learn every day, to get brighter and brighter. That’s what this world is about. You look at someone like Gandhi, and he glowed. Martin Luther King glowed. Muhammad Ali glows. I think that’s from being bright all the time and trying to be brighter."

Lesson: Never stop learning. It’s the only way to minimize or entirely avoid failure.

9. "Excellence is being able to perform at a high level over and over again. You can hit a half-court shot once. That’s just the luck of the draw. If you consistently do it... that’s excellence.”

Lesson: Consistency makes the difference between the best and the lucky

8. "Belief in oneself and knowing who you are, I mean, that’s the foundation for everything great.”

Lesson: Never underrate yourself. Value who you are.

7. “I will not lose, for even in defeat, there’s a valuable lesson learned, so it evens up for me.”

Lesson: You either win or learn and get smarter. Most people surrender to failure instead of learning from it. The only way to lose is to quit.

6. “I went through hell, I’m expecting heaven.”

Lesson: When hard work meets SMART goal setting and adequate planning, even the sky can’t limit you.

5. “Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”

Lesson: reputation is just a shadow of character. If you have a good character, you earn a good reputation, when you have a bad character, bad reputation follows because where character goes, reputation follows. Period.

4. “A wise man told me don’t argue with fools. Because people from a distance can’t tell who is who.”

Lessons: arguing with toxic people is like fighting with a pig. You both get dirty, the pig loves it, you hate it, but others can’t tell the difference. It doesn’t matter who is right, before you can argue with them you will have to come down to their level and that’s what they want.

3. “You learn more in failure than you ever do in success.”

Lesson: When you fail, you become more experienced and wiser because experience is the best teacher. When you win, you become excited and that’s all.

2. “Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week.”

Lesson: Nothing is impossible. When you think hard and long enough, you will always find a solution.

1. “Don’t tell me what was said about me… Tell me why they were so comfortable to say it to you.”

Lesson: True friends always have your back. When people are always defending you behind your back, others get uncomfortable speaking ill of you to them.
