What Is success?

Everyone living under the face of the sun has goals, desires and expectations they want to achieve. But there is one common goal that virtually everyone wants to achieve, and that common goal is success.

It is interesting to know that this common goal vastly vary in viewpoint. Meet three persons and ask
each one what success is, you will get contrasting answers from each person.

What does that tell you? It tells me that virtually everyone has their own definition of success.

Hence the question:What Is Success?

To some people success mean living in a big house and riding expensive cars.

To others it is the acquisition of material things and the possession of unending wealth.

Some say it is having a happy family: a loving wife or husband with obedient and well to do children.

Yet others see success as living a happy life, free from debt and disease as well as affording whatsoever
they want.

There are those who see success as coming out of their present predicament and stepping unto an improved, comfortable echelon.

Still some equate success to being proficient in their field, and having others look up to them as very important, such that cannot be done without.

There are yet others who see success as being where they ought to be at every stage of life, not missing opportunities and achieving the goals they set to achieve.

As it stands, what one see as success can be seen as not a success by another.

Can success be defined by one of the above descriptions, or are we missing it when it comes to knowing what it really means to be successful in life? It is yet to be known if any of the above imagery matches
the true meaning of success.

To get an idea of what I mean, ask you this question and try to answer it:
What must I be or have right now to be termed as living a life of success?

I guess you answered sincerely and if you did, what did your answer tell you about your perception of success?

Despite the different views about success, one fact remains true: everyone has a goal to be successful.
