Written By Lawson Elijah. on Thursday, 10 August 2017 | August 10, 2017

'Success', You and i both have our different definitions of that strong word. To some, Success is being attained by a high level of material wealth, riches, fame, respect and the likes. To others,  Success is based on the power and the control they exert over other people.
 No matter how different we explain what success is, it's a plain fact that's it's an overwhelming sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Success is highly motivating. It leaves a craving desire to surge forward, having a different perception about life.

                                  Famous Quotes About Success
On this list are hand-picked famous quotes about success from great world class leaders; past and present, wise men and women.

5.''Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary in their abilities, they vary in their desires to reach their potentials.''

I'm hopeful that you've learnt something from my list. Remember that there would be days you tend to *not* feel motivated towards pursuing your dreams and might want to give up. Note that the journey to/of  Success would remain filled with inevitable bad turns, make the good out of them and learn a lesson. Don't be scared of failure as 'Failure is Success in progress.''Success is not an overnight journey. It takes diligence, exceeding commitment, perseverance to pass through the trial times. The determination to keep going is what'll lead you to the light at the tunnel's end. 
Like a friend said,''Follow excellence and success will chase you PD!!''
