What is success to you? That is an important question. Not knowing the answer to this question could mean that you could be a success and yet feel like a failure. Often people expect so much that in the end they cannot be a success according to these artificially high standards that are self-imposed.
Of course, we are all different and how we define success is very much influenced by how we live our lives and the decisions that we make. Still, too many people define success in a very rigid way and simply incur failure for no good reason. I am not suggesting that one should put the bar so low that just being alive would be considered a success. No, I am suggesting that we should be realists in pursuit of that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Sometimes we must be satisfied with what has been achieved, noting that if others have been more successful than us, others have fallen short.
