When you talk of success with reference to life, it does not merely mean succeeding in everything that you undertake or do it does not merely mean succeeding in fulfilling all wants or getting whatever you desire it does not just mean acquiring a name or attaining a position or imitating fashionable ways, appearing modern up-to date. The essence of true success is what you make of yourself. It is the conduct that you develop, it is the character that you cultivate and it is the type of person you become. This is the central meaning of successful living.
