"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

whats the meaning of success? who is successful in your mind? lets talk about it.

    I believe concept of success differ from one people to another. It can be influenced by people's notion of tranquility and serenity. I, myself, summarize success in a life devoid of mind preoccupation.

    @DavidBH Thanks for your comment. Yep I do agree with you. What can be the influence of notion on the meaning of success so?

    I think success means gaining what ever you always dreamed and labored for.

    @nil thanks, so how we can achieve it?
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 657
    You can achieve it by trying hard and motivation. I always tell myself that I have only one chance to get what I want I am not going to let anything and anybody ruin it. And also you should be hopeful.

    success is about getting what you want. whether it's fortune/fame or happiness/social value or any thing else.
    My success would be get recognaized for my personal value, influence and help as many people as possible.
  • dujiannantoridujiannantori Posts: 486 Inactive
    Forgot to mention, if people get what they want without effort, it doen't count. Coz it's no fun, there's nothing to be proud of ether. Success is to get what you want after a good effort of sweat and tear. So it's more like a process and experience rather than a simple result. Plus, a success with nobody to share doesn't count ether. So here is the final defination success is a shareable process and a experience of getting what you want after a good effort of sweat and tear.

    I think you will go far @nil with that sort of attitude.

    I think everyone has their own idea of success. I believe I'm very successful because I'm happy with what I have.
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭✭
    @dujiannantori I am sure you will...This is the attitude of successful people. They WANT to be somthing

    @Hasti thanks, that is very nice of you, I hope everyone would finally get what they want, especially for those who puts lots of efforts.Otherwise, it wouldn't be fair, what you say?
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭✭
    @dujiannantori Thanks. Yep I do agree and I also believe that if you really want something and you try for that, definitely you will have it. The universe is for hardworking people in my opinion.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @dujiannantori The focal point of success lies inside you. So explore your strengths and potential and dig out more and more. It's an endless process........KNOW THYSELF :)
