Success is an illusion if it isn't realistic

What I mean by that is most people based success with career-oriented achievements..you can have success in your field but you can feel empty...however...I may be wrong...but i doubt it....but to me success means that you achieved any goal that people look down upon....it doesn't seem much...but to my standpoint I've achieve a lot....how do applied success and do you think that sometimes it may be an illusion

I don't think success is an illusion for the fact that it's unobtainable.. I set a goal that I feel is going to bring me happiness and when I reach that goal and the feelings that go along with it then I know that I have succeeded.. Success is based upon ones desires, some want fame, fortune, love, happiness and the list goes on forever.. Hopefully people desire the right things or at the end of the day they still have an unfilled void and no sense of accomplishment..

That's reasonable response....but I'm talking about setting a goal to be successful by pleasing someone instead of yourself

The majority of my goals are about others (Now that 40).... And most are lifelong goals that I continue to work on every day.. To be the best mom to my children, a comfort to my friends,family,strangers... It's not always about Pleasing others but the giving of ur self.. I want my SUCCESS to be at my faraway funeral.. Everyone is different, but this is my measurement of success..,

Ultimate success would be to leave a legacy when your gone... Something... anything that would make the world Better for future generations. Not many achieve that!

There is always a reason to achieve our success and no matter what or how heavy that reason is, I'm really thankful because I achieved and I'm satisfied on what I still have right now.

By trying to set goals just in order to please another could definately make ot harder to reach the goal because you would be basing it off of their approval. I don't need anyone's apporval. I won't ever fit inside someone else's box so they can take their boxes and shove it up their asses!!! I am a success because I am a f**king warrior who has overcome many obstacles!! And I still keep going..others can focus on themselves because I GOT me!!!
