About This Quiz

Life is full of people who work hard on a daily basis to accomplish their dreams and goals. And while success is certainly not guaranteed for everyone, some methods have worked for many people, including Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey and Stephen King.

One of these methods is to write down your hopes and dreams in a journal. Once your thoughts are laid out on a piece of paper, it will be easier to remind yourself about what you really want in life and determine what you need to do to get there. Successful people also tend to take calculated risks in life, no matter how scary it seems at the time. 

It's also important to surround yourself with other like-minded people who will lift you up, rather than bring your spirits down. Optimism from other people is also a great motivator since it's like having your own team of cheerleaders by your side! And above all, successful people tend to choose a career path that will bring them happiness, rather than money. So even though there is no right or wrong path to success, we're curious about what your current road looks like. Take this ambitious personality quiz to find out if your dreams will come true!
