  • Jan 16 2012: success means that you do the things you truly love no matter how much money you earned.
    also as long as you can live a healthy and joyful life ,then you are successful.
    i am a college student and faced with the pressure of finding a job.you know finding a job is quite difficult in China.let alone a decent job . and i always asked myself "how could i be succcessful?"through many exams and lots of failures,i find that sometimes "success"means nothing ,even you are a billionaire.you can't afford one's true love .
    so in my heart "success" means you have tried your best to do one thing whether it works or not.
