Michael Dell Quotes about Success and Opportunity :

You don’t have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream.
People ask me all the time, ‘How can I become a successful entrepreneur?’ And I have to be honest: It’s one of my least favorite questions, because if you’re waiting for someone else’s advice to become an entrepreneur, chances are you’re not one.
There are a lot of things that go into creating success. I don’t like to do just the things I like to do. I like to do things that cause the company to succeed. I don’t spend a lot of time doing my favorite activities.
Recognize that there will be failures, and acknowledge that there will be obstacles. But you will learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others, for there is very little learning in success.
If you’re happy, that’s probably the most important thing. Everyone probably has their own definition of success, for me it’s happiness. Do I enjoy what I’m doing? Do I enjoy the people I’m with? Do I enjoy my life?
There is no better catalyst to success than curiosity.
You just have to change. To be successful, what you have to do is have an acceptance of risk and you have to be pretty explicit about that, because if you don’t accept risk, you don’t get any innovation. And that means part of risk is you have to accept failure because not everything works.
People have often told us that what we wanted to do couldn’t be done. Our success is due, in part, to not just an ability but a willingness to look at things differently. I believe opportunity is part instinct and part immersion—in an industry, a subject, or an area of expertise. Dell is proof that people can learn to recognize and take advantage of opportunities that others are convinced don’t exist.
Don’t spend so much time trying to choose the perfect opportunity, that you miss the right opportunity.
We have enormous potential to keep growing. It provides lots of learning opportunity for me and it’s fun to see how so many people, so many communities are affected in a positive way by what we’re doing here. I love my job and I’m not giving it up
There’s always an opportunity to make a difference

“It’s easy to decide what you’re going to do. The hard thing is deciding what you’re not going to do.”

Michael Dell Quotes for Success:

Our business is about technology, yes. But it’s also about operations and customer relationships.
I do think a founder has special permission to make sweeping changes across an organization.
Ideas are a commodity. Execution of them is not.
Anything that can be measured can be improved.
The very thing you fear could be the best thing to ever happen to you.
We’ve found that customers are very open. They’ll tell you what’s going on, what’s working and what’s not. They’re looking for help.
As you start your journey, the first thing you should do is throw away that store-bought map and begin to draw your own.
Ignore the people who tell you it won’t work and hire people who embrace your vision.
The idea of being all things to all people is a thing of the past.
You don’t have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream.
Whether you’ve found your calling, or if you’re still searching, passion should be the fire that drives your life’s work
