I have seen many people having lots and lots money being spoken of as successful ones.Is money the only thing which can judge whether a person is successful or not?Can a person be successful without necessarily being rich? What does being successful mean to you?

very interesting points and profound questions. Perhaps different people will consider various forms of success as most important... Personally, I wish to quote the saying: "the only kind of success that really matters - that of being at peace with self and the world around us..."

Success for me is simply means doing right unto God and to your fellow men. For that success and good fortune we must strive to serve rather than to seek; to give rather to get. It's not money alone for that matter, it was by rendering some service, some work for my fellow men.....That's how I become successful....

Being sucessful is a very broad word. In every person, there is a different meaning. As for me though I am not rich and struggling to have a good life when I grow old, 'being successful' means that I am happy at the end of the day. I count the blessings I get every day. I call these blessings as ordinary miracles in my life. I am a simple person but with high hopes of being able to share my smile whenever I smile. It is difficult to make people smile when you know that working time means work and being serious. I am also serious and focus when working but I make sure that before I close my eyes I must think of something that would make me smile. So in short, being successful would mean being able to get through a day with a smile even though having a stressing day. Cheers! This is difficult to do but with much practice anyone can be positive everyday and be successful in every days goal in life. Take care =)
