If success means money, then every rich person is successful by birth and he/she will not have any aim in life because every person in this world is struglling after success. However, if success is something else, then what is it and what is the first step to it? can it be achieved at same time by a rich person and a poor?

I think the biggest success is to know what you exactly want from life.Let's say I'm a football player.I want to become no.1 football player in the world.When I reach this goal,it's my success.I'm the best where I want to be the best.The first step is to know what you want.The second step is to concentrate on your aim.Leave all the fears behind you.Create a plan.Start working.

success is different to everybody, some people view success by the size of the bank account, personally I measure success by the quality of your life that you lead. Living a life where you dont have to work and being semi retired is my personal measure of success, I know people who say they are successful but have huge mortages no kids and just work work work and will prob work till 66.
