Success means different things to different people, yet, so many people have defined the term in ways that have inspired many. These are the people whose stories tell us that nothing is built overnight. Whom we see owning empires today, are people who’ve toiled day and night, tasted dust, and yet dusted off the ashes and start back again. Like Rudyard Kipling says,

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’ 

Here’s what fifteen such people who held on have to say about success.

Have you begun living your success story yet?
