Quotes By Famous People About Success

Today let’s check out some quotes by famous people about success.

So, what is success to you? Having a well-paid job, a huge luxurious mansion, having a simple but happy family, bank account filled with oodles of money, tip-top physical and mental health, or what?

Well, we all know the definition of success is very individual indeed. One more thing is we will change our concept of being successful as we grow older; or rather wiser.

As a teenager, it was education. To get the best result in class, is considered a success then. Then followed by financial, when we started working. Then came relationships, as we all got married and have children. Naturally as we aged, our health will take a toll. Now at this stage, we would say, to be successful  in life, is having a reasonably good health and well-being.
