This is what some of our Wiki Contributors have to say:

  • Success means an event that accomplishes its intended purpose, such as "We achieved success in the election."
  • It can mean a state of prosperity or fame, such as "He is enjoying his success."
  • Success can also mean a person who achieves, such as "If you want to be a success, you must work hard."
  • Success is having a stable life both medically and financially.
  • It not an easy question to answer because I really ask my self the same question - only you know what it mean.
  • I was asking myself the same question today. The dictionary definition is "a desired outcome." So that begs the question, "what do I want?" And, "have I been successful in achieving it?" When thinking of the question "What is success?", I guess I think of it in terms of my life. Is my life a success? In order to determine that, I have to consider what it is I value in life. I value friendship. How am I doing with my friendships in my life right now? Well, not so great. I sometimes feel as if I have no one to turn to with particular problems in my life, and no one to share experiences with. What else do I value? I value leisure time. Have I been successful in making the most out of my free time? I would have to say no, lately I've been pissing it away playing video games and isolating. I value being creative. Have I been doing that? Not so much, or not as much as I'd like. I value honesty, keeping my word. I have been struggling with that recently. In this way I define success for myself. Perhaps this quotation might supply the answer: "Madonna had fame but Mother Teresa had success".

Perhaps this definision might supply the answer Madonna had fame but Mother Teresa had success.
success is achieving a personal or group goal previously set.

success is as stated above but as long as it is not detracting

from or diminishing any other person's enjoyment of the planet
Success is achieving set and defined goals and standards These goals and standards will vary according to an individuals but are often associated with wealth and power.

People must set their own definition of success. There is no wrong answer but during an interview display confidence that you set high standards for yourself. Measure success by a feeling of personal achievement.

Success is the discipline to continually pursue an ideal without giving up. Those who are unsuccessful are that way because they gave up too soon. No matter how long it takes one must be motivated and inspired to keep working toward his or her goal. Because only when in action can one succeed. No success comes from inaction.
