But How Do You Define Being Successful?

if being successful is having the biggest and most expensive man-toys in the neighborhood, then i don't want it.

If being successful is having a 7 figure income and being a snob then I don't want that.

if being successful is lifing beyond my means in the biggest house in the neighborhood, than I'll never get there.

If being successful means that i have to work 12 hours a day and never spend time with my family, i don't want to succeed.

If being successful is having a bunch of rowdy friends to go out and drink with every Saturday night, then forget about it.

If being successful is having a trophy wife who only is there for the money and image, then i don't want to succeed.

But;

If being successful is having a few good friends who share yout laughter and your tears, then i've made it.

If being successful is having a wonderful woman in my life to share everything with, then i've made it.

If being successful is living a happy quiet life with a happy family and good friends, than i want that!

If being successful is living within our means and having a modest home filled with love and affection, i'm very successful!

If being successful is loving my dearest soulmate and never wanting to be away from her, than i'm in a class of my own.

If being successful is being happy with who i am and where i am in life, i've finally made it.



So, how do YOU define being successful???
