You know what's more amazing about success stories, aside from being good essays?

It makes you appreciate where you are right now, whether you are at the lowest or highest point in your lives. It is realizing famous personalities had been there too. It is knowing that misfortunes do not always mean bitter fate. It is drawing hope that someday you will make it big, just how CEOs did it.

Steve Jobs of Apple had to quit schooling to focus on what he felt mattered more that time, his love of computers and typography.

Your day may probably be incomplete without a Starbucks coffee. You owe your addiction to Howard Schultz, the guy who was just dreaming to be part of Starbucks is now its owner.

Chris Gardner of Gardner Rich & Co. experienced being homeless and penniless before he became a business mogul. His humbling journey to fortune was published in a book called “The Pursuit of Happyness,” which was also adapted in a movie starring Will Smith.

Jobs, Schultz and Gardner. There is one thing that binds all these business titans, and that is hard work. Their tales motivate you to keep hoping and moving for progress, and be a well published essay writer as they are, someday.
