“Success” is defined as achievement of something unintended or desired such as attaining wealth, fame, or prosperity. “Failure” is defined as a minor fault or defect. We all know someone who could fit into either of these categories. We may even know someone who could fit into the categories of both failure and success. There may be several aspects of a person’s life that shape our view of them to be a success. One mishap in their life may reflect as a failure. I don’t often judge people in my life to be one way or another, success or failure, although I will give a few examples to show my definition of the two.
One example that I could give for someone successful would be the dentist I work for. He went to school for eight years to be in a profession that he l
Failure, on the other hand, is a little harder to justify. Not everyone can do what the dentist does, but since it was his goal, he accomplished it-making his achievement a success. Completing his college requirement is a great success. I do believe that people can obtain qualities of both failure and success. An example of a failure and success that I could give would be Michael Jordan. His time was devoted to these sports, which was probably the cause of his failure in family life, although family should be at the top of everyone"tms priority list. Not only does eight years of college take hard work, it also takes motivation. Success can reflect upon someone we see everyday to someone who we look upon for inspiration when we watch a TV show or movie. Many times this problem results in failure. He could not keep a job because he constantly wanted to be out drinking, or out playing golf. There needs to be a line drawn between work and play, and for some people they don"tmt know where to draw that line. She was an excellent actress and model, but also had a horrible life. Another example that many people would agree with for a successful person would be a well-known actor like Denzel Washington. He succeeded in both professional basketball and professional golf, but yet couldn"tmt keep his family together.
