Successful People
LIFESTYLE (/LIFESTYLE) BY KARA HEISSMAN (/AUTHOR/KARAHEISSMAN)

No matter how old you are, where you’re from or what you do for a living,
we all share something in common—a desire to be successful. Each person’s
definition of success is different, however, as some may define success as
being a loving and faithful spouse or a caring and responsible parent, while
most people would equate success with wealth, fame, and power.
We all want to achieve success so we could live a comfortable life—have
financial freedom, drive a nice car, and live in a beautiful house. However,
although success can be achieved, it does not come easy.
There are a lot of tips and strategies out there on how to be successful in
life (http://www.contentedlife.org/how-to-be-successful-in-life/), but I am
still a firm believer that there is no better way to succeed than to follow
that footsteps of those who have already done so. Here are 13 success tips
from some of the world’s most successful and renowned people:
