Achieving outstanding success, skill and capabilities all comes down to having the right fundamentals.

To be successful, having fabulous abilities and resources isn't the main prerequisite. What is more important is to know and consistently apply the fundamentals of success. This includes having both the mindset of success as well as taking the actions that are crucial for achieving success.

These fundamentals include both the big things as well as the little details. For example, some of the fundamentals of success include having the will-power and determination to persist even in the toughest times, knowing that failure is necessary for future success, understanding the importance of having passion and enthusiasm in whatever you do, not letting fear hold you back and many others.

Unfortunately, when we are busy in the midst of trying to achieve a goal, we often forget about all this. We get so caught up that we don't remember to apply these fundamentals.

Remembering about these crucial elements will be the key to achieving success

And one of my favorite methods to ensure that I remember the fundamentals of success is by reading the inspirational quotations of wise and successful individuals of the past and present.

The main reason I love this method so much is because doing so takes such little time yet it imparts a message of total wisdom that becomes a timely reminder for me.

"The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages may be preserved by quotation"

Apart from that, reading quotations can also be very inspiring and motivating and helps give me momentum to take action especially during the days when I feel 'off' and out of it.

There are many websites on the internet that provides a great source of famous and inspirational quotes by many well-known (and some unknown) individuals.
1. Search for websites that have a collection of famous quotations and browse through them. You don't need to read and remember every single quote out there, but just choose a couple that will be part of your personal collection which you will refer to regularly.
2. Assemble a collection of quotes in various categories including career, success, happiness, life and love.
3. Make it a point to periodically read and absorb the message in these quotes.
Reading inspirational quotes will not only motivate us, but also impart the valuable knowledge and experience from great individuals of the past who have been through the journey to success. So don't miss out this valuable method for immediate inspiration.

Here are some of my favorite achievement quotes. I make it a point to refer to them regularly and assess whether my actions and mindset have been consistent with it.
