I learned how to spell this word when was a cheerleader. Success is the horizon. You will never reach it. Or maybe it is a mirage, it doesn’t exist. When you are maturing the definition shifts and you do something that seems like settling but it is more like growing up. Success is relationships and addding something positive to the life of something else. Bringing glory to my Creator and adding to the beauty as He inspires…that will do for my definition of success. what that will mean, I will only know in hindsight. I hope it is lovely and makes us both smile knowingly when we are together looking back, with the big picture all laid out. To hear, “well done” is the goal, the only one worth reaching.

I don’t really enjoy sucking on seeds. After all the salt is gone I’m not sure what else to do with them. Do I bite into it? Typically they’re hard and flavorless. I usually just spit them out because seriously, fucceeds.

I wish I could say I succeeded at a lot of things. School. Dance. Homework. Life. But sadly, this is untrue. I wish I could say I made something of my life. I wish I could say I knew what was going to happen to me in the future. But I don’t. And I guess I never will until it happens. What I can say is that I have succeeded in living in the present. I have succeeded in taking in every single moment that is happening right now, in this instant. I don’t want to live in the past. I don’t want to live in the future. I want to live in the now, because in reality, the now is all we really have. Right?

I hope to succeed in life. Maybe not economically, but emotionally. and I want love more than anything. Love should be my top priority. If i find love, no matter when, i just need to find it, then i have succeeded in life. i also want happiness. happiness is the key to everything. when i grow up, i dont care about my occupation, i just want to be happy. so, to suceed i need love and happiness.

Succeeding is different for different people; there is no way to succeed ultimately. Some say succeeding involves a good job and a nice house; that is just the American way. Think about ways that other cultures view success. It may open your eyes a bit.

Succession? Or success? Okay, my time is running out, but I refuse to write some success story thing. Because, well, I hate inspirational posters. Especially the ones with cats hanging from trees.

assuredly he would, as a man of consequence, stature and wealth, present himself with a dignified and forward manner. yet his prowess in succeeding, an attribute well publicised throughout the locus of well-to-dos around him, lay in barely talking; keeping two ears open permitted the absorption of the best ideas and concepts, whilst a mouth half shut prevented careless slips of the tongue vocative of the most cruel evaluations that were so naturally inherent to him. yet when success rested on retort, words would bud effortlessly, and with sufficient force would deliver their point.

have i? everyone tells me is should
what rhymes with succeed?
did i spell it right?
oh, its at the top of the screen, ill just look
before it ends, just tell me where to begin,
what i need is a good defense, cause im feeling like a criminal
and i need to be redeemed to the one i sinned against, cause he’s all i ever knew of love.

I don’t. I feel like shit all the time, I get in my own way. I’m the only reason I don’t make something of myself and that has gone on too long. I can succeed, I will succeed. I need, I don’t need help I just want to do it. Just do it. Just do it.
By Nigel on 08.17.2011
I want to succeed. I really do. I’m scared to death that my GPA is going to hold me back. I didn’t care Freshman year and my grades since then have severely impaired me. It’s not fair. I’m still trying. I’m working hard every day and no matter what I do my GPA will be always be bad.
By Jane Rawlings URL on 08.17.2011
Succeed. You have to work toward something and above something. Go above and beyond. Succeed, amaze, proceed. Do whatever you can, do it at your best. Succeed at life, at love, at everything. Don’t die.

Success is this website. OneWord opens people up to share their thoughts with the world – with no one judging. People feeling, sharing, coming together. Look back on what other people have written. See the distress, happiness, depression and excitement! You are not alone. Spread the love <3
By Hannah URL on 08.17.2011
to succeed is a hard topic. everyone wants it, but when they have it, they dont respect it at all. people ho dont have it word hard for it, and when and if they get it life seems happy. Success is a hard topic.

Without a plan, there is no attack; without an attack there is no success.

If all childrfen were as up tight about succeeding as adults, they would end up spoiling their fun and causing havoc rather than laughter and determined joy. The adult is a boor; the child is a natural curious puppy by nature. Kids can succeed by playing with imagination; adults can only succeed by impressing others.

with some, it is a matter of today
to be true to oneself
getting the most out of a year
be it farming, framing, hippie-dancing or oil-tycooning
let us all succeed as we see it
By michael URL on 08.17.2011
I am going to succeed! That’s a funny statement. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I don’t — the point is that I usually try very hard to get where I want to go, or help the people I want to help, or find the the information I want to find —
Success is really kind of silly — I know people who are successful because they are grateful and have good relationships. I know people who are powerful and rich who are not successful.
By Carol Bailey Floyd URL on 08.17.2011
Oh god what a fool I am! My only ambition was to succeed, however the only thing I succeeded in was missing out on my life. I was looking so far ahead that I missed ‘the now’.
By Rebecca on 08.17.2011
win, never give up. love your life no matter what. find happiness in the simple things. everyone succeds in their own special and unique way. money, a house, a car, love, goals in life. achive your goals
By angie on 08.17.2011
success is all about who your friends are. connections! it is also useful to know important things like how to survive being buried alive. to succeed in life all you really need is a refrigerator and love.
By Sara on 08.17.2011
I really want to but as far as the world is concerned I won’t as far as I am concerned…. I already have!!
By Lauren on 08.17.2011
not going to make it, I was never going to make it. born to unwind, and implode and overflow with impossibilities. not a success, but waiting around anyways to bless and be a witness to the LIGHT of others
By mudskipper URL on 08.17.2011
i like to succeed but i dont very often. i try sometimes but i get really lazy. its only if its something ireally want or someone is there to motivate me. i’m not very motivated. hunger motivates me. haha. i hate running but i’m in cross country…i hope i can succeed at that. my friend abby succeeds at everything!

its difficult but its good when you do, sometimes its not, you can succeed .
suck seed, from where is it ? you have to know your roots to succeed
By camille on 08.17.2011
I hated that word; fail. It was the worst word I ever new. It tore me to pieces; tore at my thoughts, my actions, my beliefs. I didn’t understand how anyone could tell me that I failed when I did the best I possibly could, I tried and tried and tried. How was that not success? I did succeed.

Succeed. Succeed is a word that is tossed around as if it easy to do. Truth is, it takes a lot of will and drive to commit to that word. First, most of us need HOPE.
By shannon on 08.17.2011
SUcceed..failure. Who knows. Which is easier.. Childbirth…school work.. What comes with succeeding. Is it easier to just give up? I think I succeeded once…now almost twice. I have two kids.
By kirabelle URL on 08.17.2011
Success is an empowering ideal riddled with pain and doubt. With each step we take toward our ultimate goal, we hope to succeed, so we could tell our friends and family, ‘We did it!’.
By Eddie URL on 08.17.2011
He sat at the table and said nothing. A pot of boiling over there meant so much, it meant what he knew to some extent was success at something. But then someone entered the room and turned out the light. He knew exactly what to do but couldn’t see to do it.
By wiredwriter URL on 08.17.2011
If he ever succeeds, I’m just going to get in my car, drive across the country, give him a giant hug, and say “Didn’t I tell you?!?!” He’s in this phase where he has no motivation to do anything, but I know it’ll pass. He’s the type of person that just naturally does well in life, and I’m holding him to it.
By Jenna URL on 08.17.2011
This would be a lot easy to accomplish if I actually knew what I was setting out to do, I think. I suppose I’ll succeed at something – just maybe not the right thing, and it worries me that I may not be able to tell the difference. Or that maybe I’ll do something completely different than I’d expected. Or that maybe what I’ll succeed in doing will be to fail.
By Natalie URL on 08.17.2011
i will succeed I will be me and whatever i want to be. no one will tell me what it means to be successful because when I smile, I succeed. when i tell a joke and someone laughs I have succeeded. I will succeed in bringing happiness to myself and those around me. I will plant my seed and I will watch it grow and watch it bloom into perfection. The perfect life doesnt make sense but it is beautiful.
By amanda on 08.17.2011
“I want to succeed” was what her answer always was.
Whether it was taking 8 APs her Senior year or becoming the leader of the chess club and the GSA and the Chemistry Club.
“I want to succeed” was what he answer was when I asked her why she wasn’t sleeping these days.
By Rhia URL on 08.17.2011
Pressure to succeed. “Your daughter has potential but lacks motivation” is the one thing I amused to, and now expect to here at parent/teacher interviews. Says a lot about me I think.
By Sofia on 08.17.2011
I’d like to be a famous writer one day. To succeed it, I strive to be one. My whole life I’ve always enjoyed writing. Whether it’s poems, quotes, short stories or a one-like book, I love it. I’m very passionate about it. I look up to a bunch of authors and I’m still to this day continuously trying to get to the point they have. The way they write, and form their words.
By Jenny on 08.17.2011
Succeeding in life is hard. The motivation must be there. Without it, there is no chance of success. Many people lack motivation. I am one of them. It is a gift that few people nurture.
