Unit 1 Success!

1. Successful people
Look at the pictures of succesful people. How many can you identify? In what ways are they successful? What are they famous for?



Read over the quotes. Which ones do you like? Which ones do you agree with?

"I don't care whether people like me or dislike me. I'm not on earth to win a popularity contest. I'm here to be the best human being I possibly can be." Tab Hunter

"I just write what I wanted to write. I write what amuses me. It's totally for myself. I never in my wildest dreams expected this popularity." J. K. Rowling

"Avoid popularity — it has many snares and no real benefit." William Penn

"One of my proudest moments is I didn't sell my soul for the sake of popularity." George W. Bush

"Fame is a vapour, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character." Horace Greeley

"We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity." Marco Rubio

"If we get our self-esteem from superficial places, from our popularity, appearance, business success, financial situation, health, any of theese, we will be disappointed, because no one can guarantee that we'll have them tomorrow." Kathy Ireland


Think about it!
What kind of people do these leaders need to be? What else do you know about any of these people? Think of leader from your country. How would you describe him/her?
