What makes someone successful? Although success can take on different meanings, depending on who’s chasing it, your path and my path and everyone else’s paths also have things in common: hard work and persistence, believing in yourself and taking action—to name just a few.

No matter what you are pursuing, it’s helpful to learn from the successful people who came before you. Here are some of their secrets to success:
