    Question Success

    Is success important to you? In the sense of career?

    Or, if you're a romantic, life.

    Actually, what IS success??

    Answer: success is money. Because if you don't have money, you die, & will therefore be unsuccessful, unless you're still able to get everything you need because you're a clever thief, hunter, moocher, or vagabond-- though you'll still be unsuccessful then, in society's eyes.

    Sad but true.

    Success is eluding me at the moment.

    I am somewhat depressed about it.

    Success, to me, is living the life I know I want to.

    I want success.

    It, apparently, doesn't want me. Something about me being too lazy....

    To me, success is reaching my dreams and then some. Success to me has nothing to do with money!

    Society tends to measure success by wealth, status and power, but simply choosing a goal (preferably one that will bring you happiness), reaching it and not loosing it again is how I would define success.
    Unfortunately its hard (and in many cases impossible) to be successful without money, but money alone will only bring success if that was your actual goal.

    Success is when they have built you a statue. Or you come home and are welcomed by your family loving you. I dunno, cant decide

    I agree with this. I consider myself successful if I accomplish what I want to accomplish, whether it be at work, in my hobbies, or in my personal relationships.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    i think being happy most of the day and waking up wanting to live your life, is success. feeling like you're valuable and important and have a reason to exist and enjoy existing.

    given i'm still trying to figure out how best to go about that.

    Success is ultimately useless, since the universe is going towards its inescapable heat-death.
