Success for All
We admire celebrities. They have style, beauty, fame, wealth–everything. They look confident, and it seems like the world belongs to them. But, many of the stars had nothing when they started their journey to success. They fought for their dreams. They faced endless amount of rejections, but they never gave up. So, to assume that they were just lucky is a mistake.
