25 successful quotes to read, before you give up

August 07, 2017

Success is what we are working hard for. We wanted to achieve a certain point that would bring us to live our dream life, to travel the world, to stay with our family, to earn more money while working less, and to help others.

How to be successful in life? What is the secret of success? I hear these question always. My very own questions too.

What helps me to stay focus in reaching my goals is by the use of successful quotes. It boosts my mood when the result of my work is not what I expected. It cheers me up when I failed and a reminder why I should never quit.
