There’s no success like shadows,
like the sun losing the day to moon.
By Lorna Dee Cervantes URL on 04.04.2011
Success is inevitable, as long as you put your mind to it. All you have to do is think, “In 10 years, I’ll be ______, with ______, doing ______, and I’ll be happy and successful.” Put your mind to it, and success will be at your willing.

success is important, but many people have different concepts regarding success. Some might just take it as the concept of being able to pile up money, but accorting to Maslow, and to life, success can be a much broader concept. Success can be regarded as being able to achieve the main goals set in a certain period of one’s life. So, to that extent, what some may regard as failure, may be a person’s greatest success, and vice-versa.

To measure success in a young girls world, is usually measured in the circumfrance of your waist. It’s a sad truth to be told that thinness is next to godliness; and even sadder when it’s taken too litterlly. I’ll always remember that nothing tastes as good as as thinness feels; god I think I need a life.

Someday, I hope success will mean feeling happy. It won’t be about whose wallet weighs the most or who has the most plaques displayed on their desk. Success will be about making others happy – making yourself happy. To be successful, you define who you are truly are, no matter how many bucks or plaques you own.

Success is something you accomplish when you set a goal and you achieve it, it might be as small as getting up earlier, or as big as getting a high paid job, success can be achieved in many ways.

What is success. They tell me I have to get a magic 30 to be a success, so I can go to college and get a good job and get a good husband and have perfect kids. And die rich and happy. Somehow this doesn’t sound so wonderful to me, success isn’t happiness, who ever said it lead to happiness?

That’s what today is. Today is success. Today is perserverance. Today is living well, because it truly is the best revenge. Today is passion, and leadership. Today I am sucesss.

we all have potential
stored inside of us
it is only those
who burst with uncontainable emotion
that allow that potential to ooze out every pore
and glisten in the success
that you choose for yourself
for success takes many forms
if you are happy
you are successful

I want this, but i’m scared I’ll never have it. It’s not easy and i’m willing to work hard for it, should I ever decide to stop fucking around; which let’s be honest, may never really happaen. I gues s I kind of expect it to just come to me. That’s crazy, right? Of course it is. I’m thinking it’ll never happen. But I can’t predict the furture.
By Angela on 04.04.2011
success isn’t measured by things it is measured by people you share it with and the time you take to appreciate it with them and how willing those people are to appreciate it with you, too. success isn’t money, success is love. love for yourself and others. love for everyone. that is successful.
By candice on 04.04.2011
people who succeed do things whose success rate is quite low. people who don’t succeed to what they won’t fail. when i read this in the paper, it was an eye-opening experience.
By Kaorita on 04.04.2011
everything you want to equate to. The end of all your goals. The sacrifices you’ve made to get here. The greatest feeling one can have. The reason you do anything. The thing you reach for. The one thing in life that keeps growing once you attain a little bit of it… you must attain more.

Success is measured in bizarre ways in modern society. Like the other day, my housemate declared that he had sex with 13 girls in three weeks. The two others in the room roared with laughter and gave him a high five. He was proud as punch.
I guess he successfully convinced each one that they were special.

Something I will never have, or ever see in my life. I am a failure.
By TierraLynnae on 04.04.2011
Feels so good when it comes, but when it doesn’t… at least for me… I become distraught. Success is so defined in todays society.
By Tina on 04.04.2011
Help. where is the key to my success? I seem to have lost it. Have I ever really held it, or was it always trapped somewhere deep inside in a place i will never reach?

succes for me includes a nice cabin in the woods of colorado and a kind prety wife by my side, with stories of my days in the marines to tell my children and grandchildren. anafdaedfasd

Success is the thing that everyone wants, yet never feels they fully reach. What is success exactly? Its different to everyone. Success is having happiness. Money doesn’t equal happiness. Even if people think it does. So money doesn’t equal success.
By Emily on 04.04.2011
you know when it comes to things like success, I have no idea. I have this mental picture of a CEO of some company laughing at a company meeting. But why can’t it be a family. Why can’t that be me? Why can I not view my life as successful? It’s something to think about ya, know? Who knows what I really mean.

finding happiness in your life is what success is. No matter what you have or what you accomplish– its all relative.

Wow. Success is so hard to define. Success for me definitely means happiness. If money means happiness then that will be success. Or love. Love is success too. I guess success is just too hard for me to define because I don’t really know what I want right now. Other than to be successful lol

To be successful or to not be successful?
What does it truly mean?
I am successful, I am a college student. I’ve worked my way up.
But I have far to go.
I will obtain success as will everyone else in their own way.
By Libby McCormick on 04.04.2011
It unfolds, like a canvas. yet we do not truly seek it out. We wait for it to come and find us. Why not venture out into the world and truly experience what it means to be successful?

Since this morning I’ve thought of the American Dream and what this means. And how our culture marks a college career as its pinnacle while the rest is seen as a social climb down into seriousness and a loss of passion. That in order to be the American Dream we are taught to desire, we must lose our passions, our joys and our truest sense of self. I see that as a failure. I see that success as a personal failure and an emptiness which I fight to avoid at all costs. Finding one love and one drive is my American Dream simply stated because I am American. I need not find that office job and that model wife as much as I need to find that fulfilling job and that fulfilling wife who I fulfill as much as she I. The rest, shall be as it may and that is perfectly freeing and pleasing.

My knee has had problems since 5th grade. I’ve been dealing with it for 6 years and I know it will never get better. I’ve come to accept this, and now I feel as if I had reached a new milestone in my life. I have modified activities to make sure my knee is okay. I have tried new sports as well as maintaining old sports.

By Bea URL on 04.04.2011
To succeed you must be ambitious. So we’re told. I hope to succeed without ambition, for it seems an ugly thing. Yet I wonder if that’s only how it has been painted – the demure, innocent girl should never want more than she has been allotted, isn’t that right? But more recently I find that I am not so demure, so innocent as I had believed, though I may still be naive. *That* is unnerving. Can’t there be both? Kind and gentle, yet successful?

true success doesn’t mean getting everything you planned to go according to that plan. you know when you’re really excited about something upcoming? and you plan and plan. well stop. success is how you feel when you look back at the event and can smile at the road taken.
By jane on 04.04.2011
i want to be something one day. in fact just anything would be nice. success is measured on a personal level, no one can tell you that you have or havent succeeded. i wish i had a longer life to live. there are not enough words to write about how many times i failed. i prefer to think that im always succeeding, but that may or may not be true. maybe im succeeding in just writing this. probably not.
By Chance Willie on 04.04.2011
what does success mean? I think it’s more than making a pile of money. Although, I wouldn’t be one to turn down said pile. Is it becoming that thing you wanted to be when you were a kid? Is it being able to grow tomatoes in a fog-laden environment like San Francisco? Is it making a hollandaise sauce that doesn’t break? Is it going for that run when you would rather be sitting on the couch eating a bag of chips??

Heralding Mortimer’s success is as simple as imagining an intense flurry of currency and coins filling the air. Through the green and silver tempest you can catch glimpses of teak desk and cityscape behind plate glass. But neither you nor Mortimer can see anything more than that.
