What makes you successful?

For those of you who consider yourself successful, what is it that makes you think that?

For those of you who don't consider yourself successful, what is it that you need to do before you feel that you are?

Some will probably say money, but happiness in life comes first. Of course, those two may be related.

Making enough money doing what I like to do to keep doing what I like to do.

Wanna buy some art?

I don't take risks - really. Though maybe I'd be more successful if I did - we'll never know...

This one could get pretty deep for some people. If you have the time to type it all too.

I think that success is based on many things. I'm successful because I have intelligent, happy, good children. I'm able to work for myself instead of for "the man" and still live a good life. I am living the so-called "American Dream". I'm happy with my life and want for nothing. I have an incredible husband, family and friends. Overall, that's means I've lived a pretty damn successful life thus far.

My voices tell me to paint everything lime green. Perhaps it will make me successful.

Does it glow? Can it pay for hourly horse rides? Then it's not all that enchanted, is it?

You won't know the answer until you rub it.


Then comb the back hair.

I'm significantly smarter than the vast majority of people, which makes up for my overwhelming laziness and apathy with anything that isn't intrinsically motivating. Oh, and I have good ego strength and no real self-esteem issues.

What he said. Add in the fact that we're both older than 25 and routinely go after 18-19 year olds, and we start to seem very similar.

My minimum age is 21 now.....that whole drinking thing is annoying. Have a 22 yr old in the mix now, but a mature 22 yr old.

Attention to details.

It's really worked well since the police have yet to question me about the number of homeless people that have "mysteriously" disappeared in my area

I've got money, possesions and stay busy. No wife, no kids, no friends - and don't want none. I get to push to do whatever I want to do. I get to bet 'all of the chips' all the time.

I can see why you'd say that.

A startling ability to bullshit my way into and out of pretty much any situation.

I'm not succesful when I know I can be if I work in my spare time at what I really want to end up doing.

I need to get off my ass!

One day you will be old enough to see EXACTLY how funny that statement is.



To answer the question at hand, I can accomplish anything I try to accomplish, so that makes me successful. Now I just need to actually try to accomplish something
