Anyone who has a passion for something, dreams of success in it. Most of the time people long for success yet do nothing to achieve it. To reach your goal, you need to get yourself together, mentally and physically give it all you got.
The meaning of success and its importance differs in each person. If you’re here looking for motivation, that probably means you already know what you want. You now need a little mental push to help you prepare for the challenges ahead.
This is a list of inspirational quotes from people who’ve worked hard to achieve success themselves. These quotes will inspire you to reach for your dream.

2. “If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” Steve Jobs

12. “If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.” James Cameron

33. “Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure, or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.” Thomas J. Watson
34. “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Albert Einstein
