Meaning of being successful

  • Stories and Instances.
  • Success and contentment.

  • Success is the fulfillment of willingness.

There cannot be one yardstick for being successful

So – Raju Srivastava is successful, Kapil Sharma is successful, Hardik Patel is successful, Bill Gates is successful.

Thus if someone wants money, power, fame, respect, aura, popularity, relationship, girl, boy, profession. Everything comes under the ambit of success. Thus success is both subjective & objective. Perception & reality. Ability and adaptability. Overcoming weakness, depression. Identity.

Therefore success is person specific.

Culture specific.

Region specific.
