Success mean different to different people. Everyone has its own definition of success. To me success is the feeling of contentment nd fulfilment in life . If u are a billionaire bt not contented from inside u r not successful to me . On the other hand even if u r a pauper bt contented u are far more btr than the uncontented billionaire. The successful persons are always proactive nd has a larger circle of influence than concern . They have a solution to every problem . A successful person inspires people around him nd try to lift them. Being rich nd living a luxurious life is not a success until u don’t know urself nd try to find the reality of this world nd urself . A successful person is always of helping nature . Moreover a successful person is that who prepares for the after life in this world and his/her actions are meant to make his Lord hpy …. That’s wt I think abt success.

Success means different things to different people. Everyone has their own definition of success. To me, success is the feeling of contentment and fulfilment in life. If you are a billionaire but not content inside, you are not considered successful to me. On the other hand, even if you are a pauper but are content, you are better than the unhappy billionaire. Successful people are always proactive and have a large influential circle than concern. They have a solution to every problem.

A successful person inspires people around him and tries to lift them. Being rich and living a luxurious life is not considered successful until you know yourself and try to find the reality of this world. A successful person is always of helping nature. Moreover, a successful person is one who prepares for the afterlife in this world and his/her actions are meant to make his Lord happy… That’s what I think about success.

It is a grace that each of us has his own perceiving of successful people’s characteristics because difference in points of views avoids injustices and doesn’t distinguish one successful person from the other. To begin with, successful people can be defined with good and positive characteristics , for they work so passionately on themselves and hungry for more knowledge and experiences. Moreover, successful people who can stand still no matter what life has thrown at them.

Obviously, Life is unfathomable and it looks like a riddle in its problems , setbacks, and adversities. Instead of feeling pity and withering away, successful people face their problems with serene and patience. They take the advantage of the problem by directing their cognition from blaming to building up, accompanied by fortitude, calmness, and bravery. Furthermore, successful people won’t give up on their goal whatsoever the upsetting circumstances. I mean by that, if every life’s door were closed, it wouldn’t be the last chapter of their life. They go and start diving in creating new road to walk over.

Side by side, successful people are bookworms. They fathom that books are the way to which success can be reached, also, are suitable guidance to success map. To clarify the point, they understand that books are the destination to expand horizons, ideas, points of views,and to accept others’ differences, in other words, to think outside the box . More importantly , successful people believe in disappointments, frustration, hardtimes, failures, and adversities because from all of which, successful people would get big life lessons.

It is known that life won’t be seized by comfort and wishes, yet by courage and patience. Successful people need to handle difficulties as opportunities to win and fly in the sky, as Robert kiyosaki, a businessman and author, says ” the size of your success is measured by strength of your desire, the size of your dream, and how you handle disappointment along the way” … Nadine Mahmoud, Wednesday, 2018

It is grace that each of us have our own perception of successful people characteristics because differences in point of views avoid injustices and don’t distinguish one successful person from the other.

To begin with, successful person can be defined with good and positive characteristics, no doubt! First off, successful people are people who can stand still no matter what life has thrown at them. Life is unfathomable and is like a riddle in its problems, setbacks, and adversities. Successful people can solve it with serene and patience. So being brave and calm are perfect qualities to define people as successful. Fortitude is a must. Furthermore, successful people won’t give up on their goal no matter the upsetting circumstances. I mean by that, if every life’s doors were closed, it wouldn’t be the last chapter of their life. They go and start diving in creating a new road to walk.

Connecting to previous ideas, successful people are bookworms. They fathom that books are the way to which success can be reached. Books are inevitable. Successful people understand that books are the destination to expand horizons, expand ideas, points of views, and to accept others’ differences. In other words, to get out of a shell. Moreover, successful people believe in disappointments, frustration, hard times, failures, and adversities because those are the big lessons from life.

Life won’t be grasped by comfort and wishes as well! Successful people need to handle difficulties as opportunities to win and fly in the sky. As RoberKiyosakiki, a businessman and author, says “the size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire, the size of your dream, and how you handle disappointment along the way” Nadine Mahmoud, Wednesday, 2018

When I begin to write , the first thing I did was imagine. I imagined the following things as characteristics of successful person and noted them one by one;

1) imaginative
2) always involved in learning
3) being true with themself
4) see opportunity in every task
5) confident enough to win over the fear of lose
6) they don’t chase success but success chases them(literally I mean they don’t think of sucess but understand how to achieve success)
7) Indolence, the biggest enemy
8 ) Have a good natural power to decide the ways to success even not having the idea that Wether it will work or not.
Like I was unknown of this utilitarian app “U-dictionary” but I got it installed accidentally through the Play Store but I had decide to keep it and today my English was improved by almost 55%.

9) The fruitful use of the facilities that they get.

Like reading books , the right use of social sites and Technology , use of internet for right purpose.

10) They make the word success meaningful and make it competent to be searched in dictionaries.

See, I don’t know the actual meaning of success ;in fact, it doesn’t have any actual meaning.
Everyone has their meaning of success and mine too.
That’s why I wrote the first 10 things that came in my mind & there is no hesitancy to say that these are my 10 dominant characteristics.

Nobody will believe that perhaps I am also one of the successful person because they never seen me or heard me in medias.
But whether that actually means being successful?

Well everybody has their judging ways but I will say everybody is successful in their own ways.
