When do you consider yourself successful? Having a lot of money? Or Being able to live your life the way you want it to be?
Either way, they are both good things to strive for in life. We all know that not everyone can be successful in life as there are plenty of checks and balances for the winners and losers.
All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man has taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
