In your own honest opinion, how will you define a successful person.
Wow! Aren't you the profound one! In my own humble opinion, I will define a successful person is one who isn't afraid to face his own anxieties--that is one who is willing to learn from his own mistakes, enough to learn from them and to carry on at any cost. In other words, a truly successful person is one who learns from his own failures.
Someone who never gives up based on their own goals for success not anyone else's.
In my opinion I would define a successful person as someone who takes quiet pride in their accomplishments and openly admits, but does not remorse about their shortcomings. They must have the ability to view life for what it is; a twisting road with many ups, downs, and potholes, and to accept and love it for that. I believe that without the ability to do this, you could be a millionaire and still be miserable.
By what they have accomplished. Are they the person they set out to be? Have they reached their dream job? Are they helping those they wanted to? It isn't about how much money they make, it is about being better for yourself and those around you. Honestly, I follow Maslow's Hiarchy of needs. What level are they on and which level do they stay on the most?
Everyone has their own ideas on this. For me, success is based on being able to achieve personal freedom or autonomy. For most people, this means having enough money to do whatever they want. For others, it means living modestly with a basic level of financial security that affords them the time to do whatever they want. Time is a far more valuable commodity than money. With available time and financial security, one can achieve anything. If one has money, but must work 90 hours per week to earn it, they are not free to accomplish anything and so are not successful.
I think it all depends on your definition of success. There is success in one's career. There is success in family life - a happy marriage and well-loved and trained children. There is success in achieving personal goals. But there is an overarching success, in my opinion, and it has to do with the spiritual realm. We have bodies AND souls.
How much of your various successes will you take with you into eternity? Death comes for us all. What then? There are tried and true answers, but we have to look for them, with sincerity.
