30 Famous Success Quotes

Success is something we all want whether it to be successful in business, in your family or just in life.  In order to achieve the success that one wants, he/she must be able and willing to make the sacrifices necessary to achieve greatness because success is hard to obtain without putting in the work.  The opposite of success is failure and the most successful people in this world know plenty about failing but are not afraid of failure and will keep on trying until they succeed.  Strong will, persistency, hard work, never say die attitude and willing to take a chance when everyone else thinks you are crazy are what I believe constitutes a successful person.  Whatever is you choose to do in life, find your passion, strive for excellence and go at it 100% and success will come knocking at your door.  However, when you do achieve the success you are after, do not become content with it, keep striving for more.  Here are some fantastic success quotes to help us get through the day:
