11 Celebrities Who Reveal the Secrets of a Successful Life
Taylor Swift, 30-year-old, singer: “We are taught to find examples for the way we want our lives to wind up.”
Taylor Swift is a famous pop-country singer born in Reading, Pennsylvania. The collaboration with Big Machine Records (an independent record company) brought her fame in 2006 and her debut album was the self-titled “Taylor Swift” with the first single being “Tim McGraw”. The album sold in 3.6 million copies. In 2009, Taylor Swift was in the top 70 richest people, after earning $18 million.
When it comes to success, Taylor Swift thinks that one of the biggest mistakes that we can make is to compare or measure our road to success to others. You should keep in mind the fact that we see things differently in life because, in general, we tend to filter everything through our own experiences.
“We are taught to find examples for the way we want our lives to wind up. But I can’t find anyone, really, who’s had the same career trajectory as mine. So when I’m in an optimistic place I hope that my life won’t match anyone else’s life trajectory, either, going forward,” said Taylor Swift.
