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
What does being a success mean to you?

"Always bear in mind that your own
resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing."
"I must admit that I personally measure
success in terms of the contributions an individual makes
to her or his fellow human beings." Margaret Mead
