Do you consider yourself successful?

Me, I consider myself successful, I don't have much money, don't have my own house,my own car, but still I consider myself successful. I was able to finish my college course and that made my parents proud. For me being successful doesn't require you to have everything in life, it's about the happiness that you feel when you make the persons important to you proud of you.

for me, i am not still successful. I am a teenager , and i am still studying. .sometimes i consider myself successful when i have earn a money, and i passed exams in class. But that assumption is going to fade when a negative experience happen. . .maybe i can consider absolutely myself a successful person when i fully reach my goals in life.

I agree with you. I'm not a rich person myself. I still live with my parents, but I think I've made them proud. I've graduated from my University with a good GPA, I've already earned money since I was in the fifth semester, so at that time I could buy my own clothes, paid my own tuition (although I still got a help from my uncle, lol), even I could buy things for my parents. Now I can even buy my own laptop, I've had my own motorbike, and so on. So I think for some reasons, I might say that yes, I'm a successful person. :D

I think being successful is relative to something or someone and also a state of mind. I could feel successful but appear a failure to someone else.

I would say we will be successful if we strive hard and work for it. There is no guarantee how long it takes to be successful. For sure if you try really hard with prayers and do your best. I think that's one of the essential part to succeed

I think there is no particular definition for success. Whatever we all do is considered to be a success. If you can complete a task successfully then you can consider yourself to be successful. Even doing a silly task can be considered a success. It's how you take it. So i guess whatever we do, we do it taking success as our gift for completing the tasks whatever we have to do.

I think that to a moderate case, I find myself to be mostly successful. Perhaps more so than most. And less than many others. However, I think that I am rather pleased with what I am going right at the minute. Could I do better? I think even the most successful person ever would like to think they could do better. It does take the energy out of life when people think they cannot improve on their success. Still I think that the lessons that I have learned in life, for better or for worse, are something that I do in fact value the most out of success. Something that just a smile on my face and joy in my heart. I really do hope to ascend to some higher heights as life does in fact continue. There are just going to be times where success can be measured in many forms. And there can be slight success in failure when you think of it.
