Definitions of Success Down the Ages

--by successstory.com, syndicated from successstory.com, Apr 02, 2015

Success means different things to different people. But for the majority of us, regardless of our definition, the road to success is paved with challenges and tests. It can be a roller-coaster ride filled with highs and lows and fruitful learnings. One thing is clear -- all those of us who reach for the stars and actively stretch towards our dreams emerge from our efforts transformed. If you have a dream and are working hard to see it realized, be assured, the journey counts just as much, and sometimes more than the destination. Our failures are not a waste of time, humble persistence can sometimes serve us better than strokes of genius, and great heights can, and have been reached by ordinary people who chose to direct their efforts unstintingly in the direction of their dreams . We can take comfort and inspiration from the many remarkable men and women who came before us, and their unique perspectives on finding success. Here is a collection of relevant quotes from some of the world's luminaries. Perhaps some of these thoughts will resonate and others will do the opposite. Perhaps some will make you reflect on your own journey and the values you hold dear in a new way. Read on and may this patchwork of wide-ranging perspectives inspire you to consider and refine your own definition of success.
