What's your definition of success, how do you know when you've reached it, and what are the pros and cons?

I just want to hear different opinions.

To me, success is like a marathon without a finish line, and every time you leap forwards or take a step you're taking a chance at life. The first leap is always the hardest, but then it can become a steady stride. There's hurdles in the way, and you may have to return to your starting point to start over. But if you have the courage to do it again, then you have achieved success. Success is not one thing, but a compilation of many different things put together. It's not only the positives, but also the negatives. You may fall down, no body might be there to pick you up, people might throw things at you to keep you from getting up.

But in the end, its all you.
When fate carries you to the place you want to be, after all the giving and taking, happiness and grief aside....
you have reached success.

how do you become a better person in life?
and how do you achieve success without it being as other people's failure?

I hope this topic is deep enough for this forum, and feel free to rant your heart out to blissful nonsense about the human race.

To achieve what I define as my target.

So what you ask.,. maybe... is... what is your target? (long one? short one?)

In my opinion success is to achieve or excel in your goals, hopes, and dreams.

For me being successful is being content but still having goals. People always want to be happy, but happy is a fleeting emotion, being content can last. i just don't think people should get stuck in a rut being content and stop striving for better.

Success is being content whether academically or personally (romantically or otherwise).

Success is happiness. When you set a goal obviously it is for you to be happy. So success comes in when you have achieved happiness.

When you can wake up everyday and look forward to the forthcoming events, be it in a job, school or just in generalization.


And knowing that you worked hard for what you have. No one can take that away.

success is a form of appraisal when a person has been able to reach a target. success can be express and understood in many different terms, so everyone will have a different opinion
