“Winners never quit, and quitters never win.” – Ted Turner, American Media Mogul
The world is full of people with new ideas who are aggressive risk takers. But still success comes to only few. Because it requires a lot more effort to reach the pinnacle. Our history has witnessed some great visionaries who have risen from ashes. Despite facing rejections several times, with no money at hand and sometimes even no outside encouragement – very common people have accomplished extraordinary things – which not only changed their lives, but also gave a new outlook to the entire universe.
They are not only entrepreneurs or business magnates, but also teachers, singers, actors, and even home makers. The only thing common between them is – they never QUIT. Passion for their work runs through their veins and absolutely nothing can come to block their road to success.
Although, there are many such great leaders on the list, the one we would like to quote here is Jeff Bezos – the face of world’s largest online shopping site, Amazon. The company began as an Internet merchant of books and expanded to a wide variety of products and services, most recently video streaming and audio streaming.
Bezos’s other diversified business interests include aerospace and newspapers. He is the founder and manufacturer of Blue Origin (founded in 2000) with test flights to space beginning in 2015, and plans for commercial suborbital human spaceflight beginning in 2018. In 2013, Bezos purchased The Washington Post newspaper. A number of other business investments are managed through Bezos Expeditions.
Bezos currently ranks as the third richest person in the world (excluding royalty and dictators), with an estimated net worth of $73.3 Bn as of February 17, 2017, just behind fellow Americans, investment mogul Warren Buffett in third, and Bill Gates in first.
To quote him, having passion for your work is the ultimate key to achieve success.
