What is success? to laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better,whether by a healthy child,a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have succeeded.

Success is doing what you are created to do and what you are passionate about doing,learning things by making mistakes and never to make those mistakes again,being able to look back at your past accomplishments with total confidence take a deep breathe and know what you did was your best and be proud at that , i have read this somewhere aswell hehehe.

i think success of the life is to be happy..and how to be happy?well,it depends what you want from your life..one women is happy when she got big family,good husband and she dont have to go work..another women is happy when she is in carreer...many examples,i think you just have to listen to your heart and found what you are looking from the life:)

for me,success is to catch the goal you have set before.No matter it is big or small,it can call success.So when we are talking about success,it always connect with the goal.

Yes vicky , nothing like succedding. Success like happiness is slippery When we set out to grab it for its own sake. Usually it comes as a by-product We loose ourslef in Service or work, friendship or love and suddenly we realise that we confident , happy and successful

Success is achieving goals. The goals can be illusion but they may be hard to reach and have that success none the less.
