Here are 10 memorable statements the evangelist has made on the subject of success:

1. On his website PatRobertson.com, Robertson defined success as such: "True success is knowing God. Priorities - God first, family second, and business third - must also be in order."

2. Regarding his own success, Pat Robertson explained, "I have sought to serve God and do what He wants, and also sought to give money away."

3. In promoting his book "Right on the Money," Robertson offered this idea to help families be successful: "Families today need a better grasp on their money and a better understanding that mastery of your own personal finances can be key to a happier, more secure life."

4. An interview with Jeanne McDonnell in the Journal of Strategic Leadership revealed Pat Robertson's advice to upcoming leaders, explaining that Jesus "got 12 people around him and then spent three years training them. That is the key - a highly motivated staff that has the training to fulfill the tasks at hand."

5. Again addressing leadership, Robertson told Jeanne McDonnell that "the most important virtue is humility, to have a servant's heart, to listen to what people are saying, and to be empathetic to employees. I think that pride and arrogance are killers."

6. Concerning priorities, the evangelist noted on his website that "people who seek success are making a big mistake, but if they are seeking to be a servant and serve God, then they are on the right track."

7. "My philosophy above all else, besides listening to the Lord," Robertson explained in the McDonnell interview, “is to hire the very best people possible and give them a strategic vision of where you want to go and give maximum freedom to employees to carry out the vision."

8. In an article in Time magazine on finance, Robertson provided his thoughts on retribution vs. success saying, “I mean, if a person acts irresponsibly in his own life, he will pay the consequences. And it's not so much divine retribution as it's built into the law of nature. If we abuse our bodies, for example, we will be subject to a host of diseases. If we abuse alcohol or drugs, we will find that we don't have jobs and our families are broken apart and we've wound up out on the street.”

9. In his book “Right on the Money: Financial Advice for Tough Times,” Robertson writes about secrets to wealth. “A final secret is having the blessing of God on your finances. That secret is activated by your giving. In my financial planning, giving takes precedence.”

10. When talking about tithing and success through the law of reciprocity, Robertson has said “If you give to God, He gives back thirty, sixty and one hundredfold.”
