70 Success Quotes By Famous People

Success is the act of achieving what you have been aiming for. It is an aspect that creates a piece of mind, which is a direct result of sole satisfaction, from knowing that you have made an effort to deliver your best in line with what you want.

People tend to describe success based on material wealth or monetary terms. Success is not a measure of material wealth or capital. These are elements and results of success. Success is an attitude, not a measure of wealth. For these reasons, success occurs at different levels. I might use my effort in just trying to get a bicycle, regardless of the worthiness of the bicycle, I become successful once I have attained the bicycle. Another person might be working hard to own a company. These are different levels, but the end product is the same. We will both feel a sense of satisfaction once we have obtained what we needed from our efforts.

From the achievements that we make on a daily basis, we are always successful in our ways. Therefore, we should never look down on ourselves or try to compare with others. Our paths and desires are different, work hard to achieve your dreams.
