I have created this post with 22 quotes on success today, so that you can learn from the best of the best and apply their wisdom to your own life to achieve your dreams and goals.
According to the numbers theory there are always going to be a select few people who will be the best of the world. Out of 6 billion people it is inevitable that one of them will be the richest, one will be the fastest, one will be the smartest and so on and so forth. BUT, I believe that anyone has the chance to be successful and as long as they are healthy and alive, anything is possible.
The successful kind of people I am talking about are people like Bill Gates, Jay Z, Russel Simmons, Oprah Winfrey, Lance Armstrong and many others. I have compiled a list of 22 incredibly successful people (who many of you already know of) and given a brief summary of what they have achieved.
I have done some in-depth research about their mottos and philosophies of life and have definitely come to the conclusion that all successsful people have a mindset of hard work, passion and never giving up.
I believe that it is always good to study the methods and mindsets of successful people who have already achieved what you are dreaming of achieving. Without further comments from me, let’s read what these 22 successful stars believe.
