Significant Thoughts from the Successful to Help You Flourish!

If someone wants to learn to speak the French language well, who might they listen to? Maybe a Frenchman who speaks it well? If one wants to learn to play tennis well, they should listen to established tennis players? Common Sense?

So, if someone wants to become a winner in life whom should they listen to – the poor and unsuccessful OR the very successful? Here’s thoughts from those who have amassed great fortunes or helped others achieve them.
