What is Success?

Businessman at Road of Success 

We often talk about success.  But what is it and how do we get it?  Success is different things to different people.  To me success is when I use the talents I have been given to help another.  It isn’t in the money or the things I have; it’s how I have helped someone who needs what I can give. 

Success just doesn’t come.  It has to be planned out and worked toward.  The steps along the way aren’t always fun or pleasant, just necessary. 

Here are some quotes here to make you think about what success means in your life as you are searching for work.  What will bring you success?  Money?  Fame?  Opportunity?  Something else?
