To be a successful person they have to achieve a goal they set. This goal can be anything from sports to school, or maybe a personal goal like
a new years resolution. I got this idea because each person determine what successfulness is to themselves.
One person may say that a game was successful while another person thinks it could have gone a lot better. To be successful also depends on a persons attitude. If they have a negative attitude then most things wont be very successful to them, but if the person is positive then a lot of things will be successful.

What I think it means to be succesful is to be able to achieve your goal that you have put your mind to. Not every time you have to win to be succesful. i think that you just need to work hard and achieve a goal that you are set to. Also i think it is your attitude towards what you are doning to make it seem succesful or not.

I got this idea from when my parents are allways talking to me about being succesful in life and in activites.

To be sucessful can mean different things to different people. It can be getting a job that will support your family or yourself. It can mean to be sucessful in education and get a college degree. I think it mean a little bit of both of those description but the main point, I think is to be happy with yourself, your life, and your future. I believe that being happy is the main key in life and can make yourself feel sucessful. I agree with aaron also with the point of achieving you goals.

Successful can be defined in two ways. You can be rich and famous, with lots of cars and money, doing well in life and everything turned out how you hoped it would. But to me, being successful means to accomplish your goal on this world. From my Christian perspective, we were put on this earth, created by God to spread God's glory throughout the earth He created, and tell others about him. So being successful would look like, spreading God's glory, doing His will and telling others about all God has to offer. You can be physically successful, with money and success, but when you die that all ends. Or you can be spiritually successful, do what you were made do to on this earth, and after this life is over, your success will spill into the next life. SORRY if that was a bit preachy but I wanted to put up a different perspective that all the other comments...

in my opinion on success; success doesn't have a face. It is whatever you think it takes to be successful, whether it is the ritchess and cars and all that jazz that make you feel successful, or the love a family. Or maybe neither of those. No one knows but yourself. Because someone may call you successful on what it seems you have(such as family or money) but if inside you it doesn't feel it, then is that truly success? No, it isn't.It may take more than a family and love to fill you totally, and whatever it is that does it for you is the perfect thing. People determin their own success.
