Success means achievement, accomplishment, victory, and triumph.

The dictionary states that success is “The achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted; the gaining of fame or prosperity” (The Dictionary. com n. pag. ) and “The favorable or prosperous termination of anything attempted; the attainment of a proposed object; prosperous issue” (Hypertext Webster Gateway n. pag. ).

These are just dictionary definitions though. One needs examples and instances in order to fully understand the meaning of success.Over the years, many people have viewed success as the gaining of fame and fortune. While this is true, success encompasses all kinds of prosperity. Fame and fortune is just one form. The reason why most people view fame and fortune as the prototype of success is because these two things usually come to people who have worked long and hard.

For the most part, in order to be and feel successful, one needs to have worked at it. Here is a quote that stood out to me about success, “Behind every successful man there's a lot of unsuccessful years”.What this quote is stating is that on your road to success your going to have to face adversity and what adversity is, is basically your will being tested on how bad you want to succeed in whatever it is you want in life. There are no secrets to success.

It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure. Success is something that usually takes a lot of effort to get, but is worth it in the end. Success is also something that is viewed differently in the eyes of everyone. This is because success means doing what you have always wanted to do, being where you have always wanted to be.If a man’s goal in life is to eventually get married to a good wife and have many happy children, and he accomplishes that, then he could view himself as having success. Success basically means being happy with what you are doing in life.

Success is something that you have to want, not just "kind of" want it. For example, take what Eric Thomas said about wanting success. "If you want to succeed, as bad as you want to breath, then you'll be successful". This quote couldn't have been said any better.Your going to have to make sacrifices in life right now to get what you want in the future.

Sometimes it takes a person failing time after time to become successful, you just have to take the positives out of failing, take it for what it is and run with it. Without failure their would be no growth. Sometimes, success can be experienced after the accomplishment of just a short-term goal. For example, one can feel success after completing a small project at work or school. A person’s life is usually full of many little successes.

Success ranges from getting an A on a test or paper to graduating from high school to becoming the CEO of a major company.From little to large, success can come in any size. When your going for a major goal in life, don't just shoot for the main goal, achieve the little things first and that will just build upon each other making you feel more and more confident ultimately resulting in the long-term goal. Success is an achievement, not something that's just handed to you. Its hard being successful in life and its something that not everyone can say about them selves so to truly be successful really separates you from the weak and its an accomplishment not everyone gets to feel so its something special to be successful.

In a nutshell, success occurs in many forms and has many meanings. It includes being happy with yourself and being where you want to be in life. It also typically means finishing something that you have worked hard at. In brief, success is happiness and prosperous that comes after putting forth some form of effort and let me leave you off with a quote that will help put you on the write track to success if your not sure were to start.

"A goal without a plan is just a wish".
