Inspirational Quotes From Successful People:
From someone who I admire so much for her positive and uplifting attitude to life and that person is Oprah Winfrey. She is also an avid dog lover.
She was born into poverty to a teenage single mother in rural Mississippi and moved later on to an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood.
Raped at age nine and became pregnant at 14 but her son died in infancy. However, she took responsibility for her own life and made good and also has helped so many people along the way.
I don’t think of myself as a poor deprived ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as somebody who from an early age knew I was responsible for myself, and I had to make good.………… Oprah Winfrey
Another of my heroes is Brian Tracy. He taught me so much about the importance of goals and persistence. I keep going back to his work.

One of my favorite Brian Tracy quotes is the one about goals. It should give us all hope as it does me.
An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society if that person has clear, focused goals……………. Brian Tracy
There are many inspirational leaders I admire and one of them is Steve Jobs, who was best known as the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc. Unfortunately, he is no longer with us due to his untimely death in 2011 from pancreatic cancer in 2011.
In a rare interview by his wife she is reminded of him everywhere she goes when she uses an iPhone or watches a video on iPad.
She says of her husband “To do what you want to do, to leave a mark that you think is important and lasting, that’s a life well-lived.” No one can deny this of Steve Jobs.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. …………….Steve Jobs
