Success is worth seeking and fighting for – but it rarely comes easy, no matter who you are.
Even the greatest success stories include hardship, setbacks, and dark times. Iconic leaders whose works shape our world today all had days when they looked defeat in the face. Likewise, they had moments when they could have compromised on their dreams.
If you feel like giving up, these success quotes can put you back on the road to success.
The Person: Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most influential women in the world today and has an amazing story. She overcame poverty and abuse to climb through the ranks of radio and television with her passionate oratory – finally inking an agreement for The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1986.
Luck is preparation meeting opportunity.
This is an important quote because, if Ms. Winfrey is right, it means you can make your own luck.
You don’t have to wait around for the time to be right or the stars to align: Pick a goal and take whatever concrete steps you can to get closer. For many marketers, that will mean beefing up their skills by choosing new tools or techniques to get familiar with.
