Success


What is Success
according to you,
If you ask me
i have no clue!

Some say, Success is how high you bounce
when you hit the bottom,
But the real meaning is
only understood by some.

What is success
with which everyone is so obsessed

Getting promotion in a job?
which will make you further slog!

Earning umpteen money?
that does not long last as its only a penny!

Buying a new phone or a car?
does it take you very far!

Scoring good marks in examinations?
long way to go though will temporarily ease your tension!

If you ask me honestly
One thing I can say instantly is

Success comes from happiness,
When you are a reason for someone's smile and cheerfulness

You have people caring for you, waiting for you
You are thought about and loved though by selected trustworthy few

You have a splendid time with your loved one or close buddy
You invest time in yourself and accomplish your long outstanding hobby

At the end I feel, when you have a good satisfying day
Success comes with you in your way!

    Your definition of success is a very authentic one! When each satisfying day is added up, if the number outweighs, no doubt we are successful! A very enjoyable read! (Report) Reply

    Very good thoughts you are expressing here, but we all decide individually what success means to us.People who love money will only be happy if they are able to accumulate much wealth. Then they think they are successful. But I loved your line that said When you are a reason for someone's smile and cheerfulness. That is beautiful. That is true success! Well done! (Report) Reply

    Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
    Swami Vivekananda

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
