Success means different things to different people. According to Webster’s dictionary success means the following: “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose; the attainment of popularity or profit; a person or thing that achieves a desired aims or attains prosperity.” Everyone has a different way that they define success.
Whatever you do in life, no matter who you encounter, never let them define success for you. Define it for yourself.
Make wise decisions. Be careful of who you share your vision with. And always encourage yourself.
