Do you believe that you have accomplished what you have solely because of what you have done?
Are you successful because of steps you took to become so? Didothers greatly influene your life so that you were able to achieve success? Sometimes individuals want to give up their attempt at achieving success but others encourage them to keep on trying.
I feel I am successful because of my contentment.
Success to me is being happy.
Everything else is just a fun challenge to see what I am capable of doing .

I believe success comes with constant objective.
Even when there are failure along the way, one must keep going. With the help of others around you will boost your ego.
In life, it is a challenge. I always believe in keeping my focus of what I want to achieve in my goal.
I am never successful. Even if I have garnered a lot of academic awards, enjoy a large monthly income, have a luxurious residence and a high social status, I will never be successful because I am fallible. Life is imperfect, and success is implausible.
Success is what you have learn from your failures. It is like a mathematical equations that need numerical values in order to solve them.
Lots of people did influence the way I achieve success. One thing I know why people gives up is when they run out of values to solve the equation.
Try this for a change. I redefine my definition with failure so I can create more options to solve problems.
Failure means "When I give up" - in order for me to say that it is a failure, I must give up. Since I can't meet that category I kept on creating more options until I am able to solve my problem.
A few apt words of praise, said at the right time, certainly helped me to understand and appreciate - yes, and motivate - me throughout my life. I recall an old, retired English Teacher saying to me when I was in my early thirties,
"You've got the gift, son." referring to my writing skills or, rather, my way of putting things, even though I was yet to work on my craftsmanship.
Same thing happened with my public speaking. An elderly lady running an evening class in which I was attending, praised my particular use of words in presenting, saying that "They painted pictures in the minds of your listeners," or words to that effect. That greatly encouraged my desire to excell at public speaking and storytelling.
Yes, the fire of desire needs to be there in the first place, but the little flame needs to be fanned by the winds of others in motivational praise. There is nothing like it for getting that little fire to become a roaring forest fire!
i believe on man has ever been successful without a few stepping blockes he climbed on....doesn't matter if he admits it or not.i am not so successful right now but i will be and i do have people who got me where i am...put me on the path to success and are responsible when i become successful
i give credit where credit is due. it was my own mind that got me to where i am today. my life wasn't easy but i kept going and believed in myself.
Yes and no.
IMHO, working hard at something isn't always enough. Having motivation is important as well.
It has been my experience that some of my greatest triumphs in life-involve other people.

I went to college, but failed. I went to ITT Tech, but failed. I'm asking a simple question: Is college a requirement for success in the modern world?
