If you examine the lives and habits of some of the most successful people -- people like Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, or Mark Zuckerberg -- you'll see they have many things in common.

Each of these people defined what they wanted and were determined to make it happen in spite of challenges and roadblocks along the way.
