What is success, and how do you measure it? Everyone has a different interpretation of what it means to be successful. To some it’s accruing fame and fortune, while others define success as achieving a state of content¬ment. I think success is a lot like the notion of beauty— it’s all in the eye of the beholder. When I was in my twenties, I thought success was being able to buy a pair of shoes without looking at the price tag. In my thirties, success revolved around having healthy, thriving children. Now that I’m in my for¬ties, success to me is about making a difference in people’s lives, including my own.
