Every person has their own individuality. Every path you take is peculiar. There is no point in comparing anything related to your own self with others. But sometimes when there is self-doubt, you can always look upon others– their experiences, their views and stories. Only to know what might happen. Whatever will unfold in front of you will always be mesmerising. That’s the beauty of success. Let us read what these 8 famously successful people have to say about success.
“Don’t take a job because your mother wants you to. Don’t be a victim. Your own your decision.” – Jack Welch, CEO of GE
As I said, your path is unique. So, you should only have the right to choose whatever is the best for you. You can always take suggestions and opinions of those who matter, but never ever let anyone else define your choices.
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” – Mark Twain
It is said that this universe is full of abundance. There is plenty for each one of us. This seems legit because everyone wants different things in life. No two situations or people can be the exact same. So, people who try to inflict feelings of jealousy, unhealthy competitiveness should be avoided. People who believe in you regardless of what they want are the best. And if you have such in your life, treasure them
“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” – Colin Powell
Success is not fate or luck. It is a reaction to your actions. If you give outstanding inputs, you are bound to have fabulous outputs!
“Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do.” – Oprah Winfrey
This doesn’t imply you should compromise with your desires. It can also be taken positively that one should intend to work until you earn enough to pursue your “bucket list”.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs totally nailed it! There is no ambiguity in the concept of “following your heart’s desire”. Afterall, you are the one you will spend your entire life with. Your choices should please you- always. Period.
“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the most important thing.” – Georgia O’Keeffe
Life is not black and white, at all! As we grow up and experience the nuances of this amazing time, we realise there are grey parts in all of our lives and they are the best. The beauty of life is everyone has to find their own tints, shades and tones of grey.
“Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: opportunity.” – Bill Gates
Grab every opportunity you can get your hands on! Because you may never know what it can gift you.
“Follow your passion. I always tell college students to take the job that you would take if you were independently wealthy. You’re going to do well at it.” – Warren Buffet
Money doesn’t matter. Matters of money matter. Money is just a notion for all of us to buy stuff. If money wasn’t invented and everything came for free, would there be any chaos? The gist is, never run after money like it’s the only vital thing. Treat money as a necessity and you will never feel it is a shortage.
