Being successful in what, life? Basic life or human life? In human life, to be successful is to have a higher status than everyone else. The higher the status,the more successful you are considered. But to be successful in basic life is.....absolutely nothing! To be successful to one's self is to please one's self. In my case the more i learn and the more i understand the more pleased i become. Which to me is being successful. Obtaining one's true desires for pleasure and accomplishment and understanding.

Yes, life, that was at least the original intention of the thread.

Thanks Wyote!

Being successful is to each his own is what I am trying to point out here. Learning, making money, screwing a boat load of women, these are all things that people find the definition of success.

So then success is just pleasing ones desires?

Having goals will make you reach a sucessful life, but who knows what will come in 10 years? A sucessful life may not be persude. It all depends on your belief and fate.

everyone has goals all the time
but what makes you sucsessful is getting what you want (reaching the goals)
so in 10 years you'll have new goals even if everything changes
and one of them will probably be getting back to THAT happy living, and if you don't that makes you not really that sucsessful

According to Siddharta Gautama, life is suffering.If you translate that into modern lingo, it 'll be,life sucks !
IMHO, as long as us human beings don't get rid of our fears and desires,there will be no progress, material or otherwise.

i think when looking at the WORD success we need to look at it more accurately than society typically does. We need to look at the meaning behind the word *success and how we personally perceive it.

the idea of success differs from person to person. For example some people think being successful is being wealthy (typcail) others think, good friends, or being in love with someone.

I think in the subjectivity of our own minds, (in the realm of our own thinking), success in a particular context is : acheiving what we desired to acheive, and feeling good about it.

It has nothing to do with goals. The process of setting a goal involves on stipulating what it is you want to acheive that doesnt derive success in one form or another.

A simple suggestion for everyone,

Since it's impossible to know who's replying to what, it would be better to address tthe messages to the people you are responding to.

Kindly,

Stillmind
