    Are you successful? Why?

    Surprisingly a lot of people I know where I would say "Wow! She is successful in life!", actually tell me: No, I don't really feel successful.

    But what makes you think you are successful? Recognition, Money, Power, Fulfillment, Happiness? What do you think about yourself? And why do you feel your are / are not yet successful?

    Inner happiness is what counts most for me to say that I am successful.
    My sons pure smile to me after i do something for him makes me think that I am successful
    My husband if truly expresses happiness to me (may be after his meal or anything even smaller) that is when i feel I am successful.
    After i write a hub and i receive any comment on that i feel i am successful.
    Any work done in office to my satisfaction....then I feel I am successful.
    Actually whatever is the standard materialistic or spiritualistic for anybody in life makes the person successful in his/her mind.
    Other people giving comment on another s' success is useless for me as i don know whether the person is successful in own mind.
    Even I feel successful after my cleaning and after i complete my daily agenda.....:-)

    Yes I do feel successful .
    I have wonderful abundance both in , work, love, family and health , as well as finances. It is my intention to create and manifest more and build a wonderful online business as I am ready for a change now.

      By focussing on what I have and not on anything else, assists me feel wonderful Gratitude and move forward and achieve more of my dreams. I was nudged by various forms to start on hub pages and once I listened I am not looking back.

    I set goals and a to do list. I have my master mind group and I think I can add hub pages to this. When I'm driving I listen to self improvement  audio CD's and clean using the Self Identity Ho'oponopon on any negative feeling or thoughts I might have throughout the day. 

    I practise meditation and am constantly amazed at the beauty of life and the wonderful gift I have been given! 

    Yes I do feel successful.

    Myrko Thum,

    I am successful, but it's not because I've been published in newspapers, magazines, and on the net, it's because I live the "writer's life." I wake up each morning in the woods near the water just thinking about  what I'll write about that day. It makes life interesting. I love that anything I do can be developed into an article. It's great. It spurs  on several conversations between my husband and I.

    I'm so happy to be a writer,
