When the subject success is discussed in a forum or gathering, you see people come with different definition.
Different person with his own peculiar definition.
This happens because the meaning of success cannot be the same for any two persons.
If you want to succeed, then you need to have your personal definition of success which is highly distinct and grossly different from any other definition
Stop holding firm to another man's definition of success.
No definition is valid for you until you validate it.
Our roadmap to success is unique just as each of us is unique from one another.
We are from different home, race, background, environment and upbringing.
Just because you want to be like Bill Gates, so you ceased from being a health professional to pursue a career in IT. Who says you have not succeeded or will not succeed as a doctor?
Or just because you want to be like Aliko Dangote, so you cut short your career in education and pursue business. Who says you have not succeeded or will not succeed as a teacher?
Success unlike riches is a personal thing. What you see as success may not mean success to another person.
Success is not equal to riches. That rich man that you see may not even be successful in his own eyes.
You have to be successful in your eyes first before your success can be seen and felt by others.
He who feels worthwhile is ripe for success.
Stop chasing another man's dream or wanting to be like another man. Your aim is to be like YOU, who you are destined to be.
Reach for your goals and live your life, for here is where your success lies
