Ellen DeGeneres
Actress

 

... It was so important for me to loose everything because I found what the most important thing is. The most important thing is to be true to yourself. Ultimately tha't what got me to this place. I don't live in fear, I have no secrets and I know I will always be OK because no matter what, I know who I am. When I was younger I thought success was something different. I thought success was to be famous, become a star, drive nice cars....My idea of success is different today. Definition of success changes. Success is to live your life with intergrity and to not give in to peer pressure to try to be something that you're not. Success is to be honest and to contribute in some way... Follow your passion, stay true to yourself, never follow someonelse's path unless you're in the woods and you're lost and you see a path then by all means you should follow that.

Life is like a one big Mardi Gras but instead of showing your boobs show people your brain and if they like what they see you'll have more beads than you'll know what do with.
