That’s all I want. I mean, that’s all I wanted to do. And then I did. And now, as I sit alone in my big apartment and look at all the things I just HAD to have and all the things I worked so hard to get and I think about the job that I’ve broke my back for, I think: Is this really what it means to succeed? I’m surrounded, but alone. I’ve got the money, but it doesn’t buy what I wish it would. I’ve got it all, but I’ve got nothing.

one word has a lot of meaning. You tell someone something and sometimes all you can think of is one word. It has a lot of meaning even if it doesn’t to them. To you it has all the meaning in the world. One word can be good or bad. Doesn’t matter it’s up to you.

Succeed, I guess that means to do something good! It could also mean to achieve your goal that you set out to achieve. No matte what it is.

I succeded to figure out the true meaning of succede. it was to try, give it my all, and to finally achieve what I had been striving to do. Finishing is not succeding, triumph is. Triumph to do what we’ve always wanted.

to win, to finish, be the best. I want to win, do you want to win? living a life worthy of envy? is that success? i don’t know, to be fullfilled, satisfied.

I will succeed, against all odds. I know the odds are against me now. I can feel myself crumbling, both from within and outside. But this will pass, and I will be stronger and win. Like a champion. This is life.

I change what I think it means to succeed every day. Somedays I think it’s possible, other days I know it’s going to happen and some days it seems farther away than ever. Some people have succeeded without knowing it themselves. That’s interesting, I think.

People called her the most successful woman of her time. But she looked around her and told herself she didn’t succeed in anything; she wasn’t happy.

To succeed without cheating is the greatest honor anyone can have. Cheaters will win in a heartbeat, however they will not have that same good feeling in their heart when they win first place if they know they have cheated. Those who succeed without cheating and work hard to succeed, are those who matter in life

Succeed is a journey. A path all of us human beings – almost all of us- are on. Success is at the end. Falls are on the way. Nothing but the sweetness drives our troubled souls.

accomplish something, beeing successful, reaching your goals.
By Robby Bergen on 08.18.2011
Success isn’t money.
Success isn’t marriage.
To succeed is to become something greater than yourself.
Not all of us can get there, but everyone should try.
The majority of us have a narrow view of success, sadly.
By Carpe URL on 08.18.2011
Impressions of success are always intertwined with wealth. How come being a nice person, or a social worker are never measured in these terms. Society has a long way to go before we can succeed at calling ourselves civilized.
By mariesdaly on 08.18.2011
It’s not easy to succeed but everybody wants to do it. It takes hard work and dedication. If people were taught these things as children, it makes it easier for them to succeed but that doesn’t mean the rest of us are hopeless. We can learn, work hard and succeed too. Not to mention that the goal in and of itself is subjective. Everyone’s definition is different.
By Jennifer on 08.18.2011
I think everyone has the right to succeed, but you can’t succeed all the time. Furthermore, you can’t succeed, if you don’t try. Sometimes you have to fail, because in failing you understand all the wonderful things you could do. To fail you understand your limitations and learn how it could be better. We all want to succeed, but we can’t always do so. Instead we should be proud to fail, because it brings us that much closer to our goal.
By Jen on 08.18.2011
A person cannot succeed in life without making a few mistakes. When you stumble, regaining your footing is the best start you can make toward reaching your goal.
By Emma Jewett URL on 08.18.2011
this is a tough thing to look at. the idea that success will come to me has always been there, but lately it has become more distant and seemingly unattainable. i am reiterating something i’ve said before, but more than success, i just want fulfillment.
By Sam Olpagu on 08.18.2011
what does it mean to succeed? does it mean having money, or power, or influence? or is success about personal achievement. living a life that is entirely your own. a life that you are proud of, where you put others before yourself, and stand by your morals and beliefs,whatever they may be. This is what it truly is to succeed, to make a small difference in youre own way & believe that you have been sucessfull in everything you have done.
By Dawn on 08.18.2011
when it comes to being able to suceed there are many things a person could do. for example one could be able to suceed at holding their breath for a long period of time underwater, in hopes that they will grow gills or in hopes that the top of the surface of water hasn’t become fully engulfed with wild penguins making it impossible to come up for air. that is failure to suceed. but however having a scuba suit handy and an air tank is a fantastic way to succeed holding ones breath underwater.
By Ashley on 08.18.2011
I like to think that my success is based on whether I am happy, but the older I get i find that the only means of success is what I think the people around me find as successful. That if they don’t think I did well, then why should i think i did?
By amaanda URL on 08.18.2011
Ha, succeed. A lot of people think “succeeding” is getting money and a car and a lover. ldiots. Once they get those things they’ll understand how much they’ve failed. Succeeding is not something that can be done by obtaining things. Succeeding is a forever ongoing process. Material things are just an unfortunate side effect.
By Kevin URL on 08.18.2011
My dream is to succeed. I will not be satisfied until that dream is fulfilled. Success to me is happiness, being satisfied with my life. As of right now, I’m very unsatisfied. I have a lot of work left to do before I consider myself a successful person.
By xstal URL on 08.18.2011
it’s what makes you wanna continue doing what you’re doing, it gives you a great feeling of accomplishing something great in your life, everyone knows it, everybody has experienced it in their own way.
By robby URL on 08.18.2011
when we succeed we feel better, we have a better selfesthem because we think that finally something i did was worth it.
By maria chioccarelli on 08.18.2011
If you want to succeed in life you have to go out to the world and make something happen that you truly believe in. To be successful you must take the first step and start your journey.
By Jenny on 08.18.2011
Succeed. i believe that God wants every single one of us to succeed in everything with do, and succeed with a close-to-perfection factor. Besides, we ARE made in his image.

She was willing to do anything to get it right this time. It was all she wanted. Time after time she had failed but this time she would do it. This time would be her moment. She would succeed. Nobody was going to stop her. It was all she could do to keep herself sane in that moment before the bell went off. It was all she thought about. Succeeding, Succeeding, Succeeding.
By Angela on 08.18.2011
i want to succeed. everybody wants to succeed. that’s why i’m working hard. i’m not just doing this for myself. i’m doing this for the people i love. but some people just don’t understand. and thinks i’m being selfish. i simply don’t know how to deal with them. it’s stressing. and disappointing.
By lynette on 08.18.2011
I will suceed in life by following the examples of heroes in the world, mainly Anna Esch, Makenzie Miller, and Kelsie Leslie. They, as sophomores who are interested in writing, are an inspiration to me. THey are my muses, my divas, my heroes. I aspire to be them.
By Miss T on 08.18.2011
Succeeding. hard to spell. Something that ironically stays out of my reach. I never have, never will. I have no achievements and am constantly reminded that but everyone around me. I hate this shit. Why do we even need to succeed? Why can’t we all just LIVE. Live free without the pressure.
By Carla Vergara URL on 08.18.2011
In order to succeed you need to first believe in yourself and your dreams. Once you do, then everything after that is easy, and life will be fun as long as you want it to be.
By Mary Lou Wynegar on 08.18.2011
To succeed one has to have drive, determination and a willingness to give up simply pleasures in life to put one’s career first. If that’s what you’re into. Some people consider success to be a husband and children and a long healthy uneventful life. I wish I knew. I wish I knew what Success meant to me.
By Heather on 08.18.2011

Succeed. to look back at your life and find out that you have enjoyed it. To look back at your mistakes and smile. To have a good life in the end, and if it’s not good, it’s not the end, and you haven’t succeeded.
By Clair URL on 08.18.2011
Everybody worries about it. :People kill for it. People fret and spend there whole lives for it. Many others want others to believe that they are a success but they tear each other down for that belief. Success is the main cause of depression and worry.

It’s all based on your own perception. What do you want? Go for it. Your success is not defined by others.
By Starr on 08.18.2011
it’s hard. you feel like if you don’t succeed, you’ll be a failure at life. but maybe success comes in different forms. and all you need to truly succeed is to be happy…to be able to smile at the end of the day
