    These quotes are so awesome, I believe that one of the keys to success is self motivation. And one of the ways that successful people are motivated is through reading and focusing upon successful quotes. Success quotes sparks those flues or fan the flames that cause you to excel and move forward with a greater determination to succeed and accomplish those goals
