I don't think he will be a success man

Postby sunnyni » Thu Aug 04, 2005 9:11 am

For everyone's action should be limited by the ethical.
He cann't do everything he want. For there is a original instinct in everyone , he wants to get more and more , to expand his orbit. As a result he will be a aggressor. A aggressor can't be a success man.

I don't think so, why do you think that aggressor can not be a success??In history, many aggressor men were successful, for example napoleong... :)

In a book about success and luck, the author said that success can be come from luck. And luck doesn't come twice , we have to catch it as soon as we touch it.
He also compare luck by chance with manmade luck, because not all of luck leads to success, we have to know how to make a luck for ourseves. That success would be long-lasting.

Success...

Postby hello » Mon Aug 15, 2005 11:19 am

I think that a successful person is the one who achieves his aims without neglecting the surrounding, whether they are his friends or family ....

also, the success comes after managing your time very well ....
you have time for your study or work , for your friends, for your family , and for your other activities...

In my point of view, when a person feels satisfied of himself, he is a successful person.....

This topic reminds me a saying.
What makes one success is not one's IQ,but one's EQ.

Thomas Watson, the founder of IBM, was asked once to give a formula for success. His reply? "Double your failure rate"!

success!!

Postby phucauto3 » Sun Sep 11, 2005 3:28 pm

success, by definition, mean achieving your objects. Thus a successful person must be an individual that accomplishes his objectives more often than he fails to do so. Success is largely defined by measures such as wealth, position, status. In addition success is measured by one's capabilities

From the replies , I concluded that many people believe that success is not wealth and position. It is defined as if one person can do what he want . So what you want to do now? Learning English? Maybe now we are all not success. If we want to sucess, we must have wealth , i think this is a basic condition. so you come here to study English for a better future.

Some people study English just to know another language, to communicate with other peoplw who know how to speak English, etc. It doesn't have to be for your own future job. Well, speaking more than one language does benefit you for getting a better job, which is a better salary; however, what if you were a retired person who were learning another language? What do you say about those cases?

I just want to give a instance.
I always can't do the thing that i want for i have not enough money. So i am not successful. Maybe the wealth people can't do what they want to do too. In the buddha , Greed is the enemy of the human. Everyone will be successful if he has no greed.

What 's the diffirence between money and success in you!
to many people, family, job, social standing, knowledge is more important. If we can combine all perfectly, we will be successful

Yes, but wanting things for you or taking things that are not yours because you want them are greed. However, doing things for others or helping others is one of many ways to be successful, and it's not a greed. They are not a greed because you don't want thing for yourself or others. You help them because it's a part of one human being should do to another, and they'll be happy because of your help since you're a sincere person who just help without asking something back in return; therefore, to some people it could be a success because it's a part of the goals to them-- helping others when you could without asking something back in return. If you help people to get them to like you, then it's a part of a greed, for you've helped people with a purpose. It's not a genuine act.
About setting goals and wanting to achieve them are also greed; however, I think there are levels of greed. Not all greed are just plain bad. For instance, your greed based on the happiness of others could be a good or a bad thing. If your greed will make them happy, then is it good or bad? I think you know the answer. If your greed will take away their happiness, then I think you know it's a good or bad thing, right?

Each time we dicuss the problem, we have to balance the both side of it, bad and good.

hello everyone, I just wanna say that i completely agree with what Bob Dylan said.... to me, if u go to bed and u did wat u wanted during the day then ur successful no doubt there. success is mistakingly perceived these days as doing sth that brings alot of money and move u up in social class..i say success is doing wat u want and being happy and satisfied....I believe that's the meaning of life:)

Success

Postby meylenlau » Mon Nov 27, 2006 1:07 pm

“Success” is the expectation of humans, if one has the strong determination to work it out , I’m sure, he/she will succeed.Merely have an idea is insufficient,sould have actions,ready to face and solve problems,and...must not give up.

welcome, more opinions please.
