Success means different things to different people. Success is measured in many different ways. The thing to keep in mind is that the meaning of success is unique to each person and you have the right to determine what success means to you. To many, success means having lots of money, a big house, and expensive cars. There is nothing wrong with this. However, this may not be how you define success for yourself.

Success is a state of mind. If you believe you are successful, then you are. And it doesn't matter what other people think. As long as you know you are a success, that is all that matters.

According to Ralph Fiennes, "success is a quite, daily thing." Fiennes says, "I call people successful not because they have money or their business is doing well but because, as a human beings, they have a fully developed sense of being alive and engaged."


The perception of success is different for everyone. What one person sees as success may not seem so successful to another. Part of being successful is to determine what being a success means to you and living your idea of success.

What does being a success mean to you?
