The person who starts our simply with the idea of getting rich won’t succeed; you must have a larger ambition. There is no mystery in business success.

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what are doing, you will be successful.
Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.
