Success In A Different Light

Standard

How do you define success? What makes you consider a person successful? Success means different things to different people. To some, it’s about being able to accomplish their goals; to some, it’s graduating from college and having families of their own; to some, it’s being financially stable; and still to some others, it’s being able to sleep for 8 hours a day.

During my first two years in high school, my cousin used to wake me up in the morning and even help me get dressed by putting on my socks and necktie. She would also do my homework whenever I got too tired and sleepy to finish it.  I could tell how proud she was of me by the way she spoke about me in front of other people. How she’s supported me in every way she could is beyond ordinary. Over the years, many things have changed, but how she cares is an exception. To me, she’s one of the most successful people for she knows how to love, and she’s expressed it so well.

If success is measured by how much you love, how successful are you?
