I think in this world, no one is completely successful. Yes, It happens in some cases. many men are successful but not in every field. So, to become a successful man, we have to do many things which in this age I think is impossible, Firstly, be honest, then do hard work, having hard determination towards work, strong will power, and last but the most important thing is good behavior. Yes I am successful, but not completely. What is your opinion about this? What is defination of sucess?

Well success is not in 100% or numbers, its all in the satisfaction of your effort and giving a good fight.

There are different aspects of what we call success...i may not be successful in my financial right now,but i am successful in emotional,spiritual,and i may say mental aspect.what is success anyway? it is the achievement of ones being in any goals that one may want in life...oh i pass the test,that is success,oh i earned my promotions ,that is success too,oh my girlfriend say yes when i proposed marriage that is one too.every jumps and hurrays are signs of achievements and slight success...If you are financially successful, that i think is 35% of what success means..but most of us just see that when one person achieve tremendous wealth that is success already, that is only part of being successful.yeah you are right no one is really 100%successful in the entire human universe...

A successful individual is a contented individual..If you're the best darn mail clerk and you're happy with it, you're successful..much more so than the ones who are never happy because they never have enough..because they strive to be successful in someone else's eyes and never reach contentment and never reach peace. Enjoy!

As far as I am concerned, I think I am a not so successful in the world now. Though I am still trying my best to make me a successful man. But I think it will be so difficult for me to have a success at the moment. But no matter how difficult it is, I think I need still do my best to keep pace to be a succeessful man.

I believe that success is relative. One's measuremeent of success differs from another. One may see himself as successful simply because he has a great job and earns plenty but for me I measure my success with the happiness I feel everyday and the people I have helped.

Really good discussion, but I would like to ask you, that in which aspect of life you are asking question "Are you successful?". I mean there are many aspects of life, like marriage, career, relationships, love, friendship, the list is endless...... In which aspect are you asking? As of me success doesn't mean to be rich, success can not be measured by how much money we have, success can not be measured by how much power and prestige we have. As famous writer Jackson Brown said "Judge your success by the degree that you're enjoying peace, health, and love." Success is can not be judged by richness. That's my view on this discussion.

for me the definition of success does not depend on the material things we have but when you feel content and happy with your life that's what we call success. Now i feel successful though i don't own a condo and a nice car but having my child soon is the best gift God has given me and a partner that understands me and take care of me.

In my view everyone successful considering the genetic code they are born with and environment they are brought up in..According some philosophies every human being is here on this planet on some mission or duty.They remain here till their mission is completed.On that count everyone is unique and is a success.It looks hard to accept this view.It is comparison that makes success a very relative term.

Yes I am very successful.Living the life you really want is the only kind of success that matters.Success to every individual has a different meaning.Each one views it differently.Are you free? Then you are successful.Are you in the present moment? Then you are successful.Are you useful to people around you?Then your life is a success.Do you feel love to all humanity?Towards everyone around you?That is a sign of success.What are the signs of success?Is it ulcers,stiffness, fear, ego or anxiety?.These are not signs of success.What then are the signs of success? Happiness,joy and fearlessness.

Success is not a perfect thing.You needn't do everything very well,Just doing well in what you are skilled.That means success.

for now i dont think so.. because i still dont achieve my goals in life.. i cannot say im successful if there are still things that i want to have.. some say that im successful now because of my achievement in school but for me i still havent almost half or even fourths of my goals.. so i can say that i not successful yet, but im sure that i will be.. :)

At the outset I would feel myself as a man of failures. But at heart I hold the feeling that I have resources of internal depth which anyone else would envy.
