People define success differently. For some it is the ability to spend time with family, for some it is a promotion, for some it is business trips abroad and for a good lot of people success is defined as money earned. In short, success can be either personal or professional and we are always looking to succeed.

In our attempt to succeed, we need to remain motivated and inspired the whole day, month, year long. There are only two ways to remain motivated – get motivated by the small success we gain on a daily basis and aspire for more success. Or to look up at people who have succeeded before us and see what their thoughts were on this ever-prevalent need amongst the humans – the need to be a success.
