Success means different things to different people. Success is making money according to some people, achieving goals for some other people. I think success is not something you can achieve and keep it for yourself all the time. Its a journey, not a destination. You have to prove again and again. I want to remind you a wonderful quote from a great man named Edwin C. Bliss

Success doesn't mean absence of failures, it means the attainment of ultimate objectives. It means winning the war, not every battle. - Edwin C. Bliss
As he said, its not about winning every battle, its all about winning the final war called life. You might miss a boat in your life, never get disappointed and try to retrospect yourself why you missed the boat and find new ways to get into the boat. This is life. This reminds me another quote from a wise man call Beverley Sills
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you will be doomed if you don't try. - Beverley Sills
History provides us lot of examples in which almost all successful people usually encountered gut wrenching failures before they succeeded. Thomas Edison failed approximately 10,000 times before he invented the light bulb. Just imagine a world without a light bulb. Failures are inevitable, you have to use them as driving force and reach your goals. Negative thinkers say that success is nothing but a synonym of Luck. I disagree with them. A burning desire and hard work is all that you need to achieve success.

I will end my article by quoting some inspiring words from great people.

Don't aim for success if you want it, just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally. - Sir David Frost
The biggest secret of success in life is : You don't have to get it right, you just have to get it going. Perfectionism can kill success. We never get going because we are always waiting to get everything just right. Instead, let's get going. - Mike Litman
Success has a simple formula: Do your best and people may like it. -Sam Ewing

Just leave comments to this post what success means to you and what steps you take to achieve it.
