We all have to start some where, whether it's starting on your bed planning your new business or if it's sitting in a cold powerless building day dreaming of what it will look like in just a few months. I think, anyone can be successful. All it takes is commitment and a few friends to help push you. What are some ways you are successful? I think I'm successful because I'm 16 and I know html, css, and php.

I see success as working hard, putting honest money in the bank, and being able to provide a stable home for your family. It does take a lot of time and planning. For me, I'm 21 and I'm a freelance writer, mother, and I help run a computer repair business. At times money is tight and we struggle but once we have things sorted out and papers in order we will be fine. I know I'm successful, my son is always fed, my house is always warm and I'm happy. That's all it takes.

amazing response =] maybe one day I'll be that successful. When I get older I want to be comfortable, not rich but not poor, you know, just so I know all bills will be payed on time and everyone will be kept fed. It would be nice. Again, amazing response =]

It is difficult to be successful if You are going the wrong way. It is easy if You are truly dedicating Your talents and skills in what You like and enjoy to do. Skills of html, css and php are very good, especially nowadays when all over life gets into the environment of the internet. Am I successful? At some point- yes, because I do have something that others are still trying to get-learn-obtain. But I prefer to more forward to my happiness and not to look at things that I do not have or don`t have but might have had: MAYBE IT IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS?

You are quite successful in these terms. I hope that I will be able to do a few of the things that I want to do and be successful. I once made a website which ran for a few months but I took it down because I could no longer afford the expenses. Cheers!!
