    • Please... you responded to my question being a smart ass from the get-go you were not trying to be 'helpful.' If you were not trying to belittle me then choose your words wisely as they can easily be misunderstood on-screen.

    • >_> This is interesting because it is actually probably the only time that I had no ill intent.

      <_< Maybe I just give off that vibe of "ill intent".

  • Others might disagree, especially since I didn't go to college/university but sometimes I feel like I've been successful. Everything I have in my life, I earned it on my own. I come from an extremely poor background. I moved out when I was 19, and I've slowly been accomplishing the little things as I go. I now make good money, have a very good savings account, just finished paying off my car and I am looking into buying my condo. I've done all this without help from family or friends. I moved an hour from everyone I know when I was 22.

    Although, other times I do feel like I am a loser. I did just pay off my car, but because I was poor, I didn't actually get my license or a car until I was 25. I had no one in my family to teach me when I was 16 to drive. Any money I earned either went to buying things for school, or to help out my mom. So I am actually behind my age for that. I am also going to be 30 in September and I have never had a relationship and I am still a virgin.

    So my definition of being successful changes, especially when it comes to myself.

  • To be successful has so different meanings in life. Be a good husband, be a good father, be your kids role nodels, be good at your career. Being successful is all those things but often times it's hard to do.

  • I'll consider myself successful if I continue to live my life to please God first and foremost. After that, success in my specific situation would be defined as obtaining my MD and becoming a practicing Doctor.

  • honestly to be truly successful you have to consider your health first of all. mental, physical, spiritual, and after that then you can consider other things such as money (saved in the bank) and stuff (house, cars) and also if you are into this a family (like at age 30, a husband and 2 kids). But if your health sucks and you are mentally unstable, you are physically hurting every day and you feel like you are spiritually drained then anything and everything else will not bring you happiness.

  • To me it means being happy with ur life. Everyone has their own defintion. I personally don't think there are standards you have to achieve. If your happy with how things are in ur life then thats all that matters.
