How do you define success?
asked Dec 3, 2016 in Other Questions by ToddTreharne IBO Specialist (56,390 points)
Success can be defined in many ways. I think we accomplish success when at the end of a day we can say…this was a good day. I look forward to doing it again tomorrow.
Yay! I resonate with this! ENJOY creating a good day! =)

Being successful to me is when I have the satisfaction of helping as many people as I can.  In order to do that I must be able to add value to peoples lives.  When people come to me for answers I feel successful if I am able to answer them with enough value it has solved their problem.

GREAT question, Todd!!!

Success is always doing your best!

Every person is thinking differently about being prosperous in life and is defining success in another way, so there can’t exist a definition that is suitable for all. It is very important that you know exactly how to define success in life!

Some might define success as having luxurious cars and a huge mansion, whereas others consider a life full of joy and happiness with their family as the true meaning of success.

The true meaning of success goes far beyond the common definitions of success, such as having a lot of money, being wealthy, having a lot of tangibles and earned degrees. Quite the opposite: true success in life cannot be measured with the above-named factors, but instead with the amount of people that are able to live a better and more advanced life because of what you created. This is the meaning of success. Not the trophies people are collecting in their lives. Media and society let us often conclude that living a successful life means to be extraordinarily wealthy and have a lot of tangibles. But the meaning of success is to live a happy life and to make this world a better place for everyone.

For me success means completing my daily tasks at hand. If I complete my schedule, at the end of the day I feel successful.

Being Successful may mean in different ways to different people.

For the students getting degree

For the unemployed it would be getting a job.

For the poor getting a big sum of money.

It works in different ways to different people. It can not be generalized and can not be measured.

Thank you iyengar-I wanted to know what it means to YOU, not what it may mean to some or anyone else. Personally is what I am asking.
