As a business leader, I’m always asked 'what is the key to success?' It’s every entrepreneurs' dream and desire. But it goes without saying that there is no formula or key – it takes a lot of hard work, and the perseverance to overcome challenges and turn them into opportunities to learn and grow. And once you do, you’ll often find that the goal posts have moved, and you’ll be seeking a different and new kind of success.
To motivate you on your journey, here are my top 10 quotes on success:
