Throughout his time in the spotlight, Bell has been quoted on many topics, including success:

1. In an interview with The Huffington Post, Bell talks about the need to accept our desires to succeed in life. "For many, 'desire' is a bad word, something we're supposed to 'give up for God.' That kind of thinking can be really destructive because it teaches people to deny their hearts, their true selves."

2. In the same interview, Bell talks about how to gain success, saying "Do what you do with every ounce of energy and passion you have, give it everything you have."

3. On his Tumblr blog, Bell writes about making the correct choices in life as being key. "Life is precious, our decisions matter, and there are always consequences for the choices we make."

4. In his book "Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith," Bell tells people to aim for more and look on the positive side of life. "Why blame the dark for being dark? It is far more helpful to ask why the light isn't as bright as it could be."

5. In his book, "What We Talk About When We Talk About God," Bell tells people to be true to ourselves to succeed in life and not be controlled by others. "We can become enslaved to the expectations of others. Losing our true selves in the process."

6. Also in "What We Talk About When We Talk About God," Bell says that God believes in success for mankind. "I believe God wants us each to flourish and thrive in this world here and now as we become more and more everything we can possibly be."

7. In his course on Oprah Winfrey's website, Bell tells people to live their lives to the best of their abilities. "Life is a gift. And what you do with it matters."

8. In his book, "Drops Like Stars: A Few Thoughts on Creativity and Suffering," Bell warns about becoming stagnant when it comes to success. "If we aren't careful, our success and security and abundance can lead to a certain sort of boredom, a numbing predictability, a paralyzing indifference that comes from being too comfortable."
