What is your definition of success?

I've recently read about two entrepreneurial, Swedish girls who love bicycles, technology and design. They are also into bicycle safety.
They spent seven years researching and working to invent a bicycle helmet worn like a collar that opens like an airbag in case of accident. And it works.

They succeeded although not everybody took them seriously. A quote from one of the links above - “If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”

This and a talk by Angela Lee Duckworth made me think of a question I'd like to post - what is your definition of success?

  • May 20 2013: Success is doing what you are passionate about so well and getting aprreciated for it..... I believe passion drives fulfillment and being recognized for what one is passionate about brings long lasting success... passion makes you not stop at anything, obstacles become opportunities to be better and results fuel the energy to achieve.
