There is a really famous quote by Bill Gates that goes like, “If you are born poor it’s not your mistake, But if you die poor it’s your mistake.”

This quote has inspired a whole generation of top entrepreneurs and business people who are a great success today.

However, success stories are not created out of thin air. Reaching a successful goal requires a lot of effort in the background, which rest of the people rarely get to see. Perhaps it’s best encapsulated in the following quote –

“It took me 17 years & 114 days to become an overnight success” – Lionel Messi

People (this generation?) often want success without struggle and forget to pay their dues to the hard work. Now, you listen carefully – you can’t become a success story without the effort, the sweat, the pushing back of boundaries, and improving with every fall.

And if you can’t remember those cliches, I’m going to take the story route. Below are inspirational success stories of hard workers and how they reached the elusive top. Here they are!
