The word, ‘success’ is one of the most appealing words in any language, for almost everyone would like to be successful. The greatest thing about success is that there can be no fixed definition of it. What might seem as success to one person might appear to be a waste of time or energy to another.

Whether it is accumulation of wealth or saving a person’s life, much effort goes into being successful. Moreover, the luck-factor also plays a part in most stories of success.

First and foremost, a person needs to decide for himself what success means for him. He may listen to the opinion and advice of well-meaning family members and friends, but ultimately, he has to take the decision and then put in his very best to turn his dream into reality.

Just like true love brings an inner glow on a person’s face, true success brings a sense of inner contentment, very different from what is understood as ego, regardless of the opinion of others. If you feel that happiness, you have tasted success.

The success of a thief is a loss for the owner.Success should not be at somebody's cost. This is a basic principle. The inner glow that you speak about will come only when the means employed are fair.A good post as always.

Very true. Success itself is very relative. I agree that happiness is the real measure of success though. Great article.

Thank you Parthasarathi for your detailed comment. You have rightly said that fair means should be adopted for success. This is why in the post I have mentioned true love and that inner contentment is different from false ego.

Have a great day :)
