2. Success is the word inculcated in our minds as a part of our education system. Were told You have to succeed to grow. If you want to be promoted to next class you have to be successful in your exams. You want recognition in the society you need to be a successful person.

3. Success is a wonderful positive word, but what does it actual mean.
Is Success a result, achievement or accomplishment?
Is it a process or a journey of realization of dreams?
Or is it a relative measurement, a feeling of emotion or a passion?

4. Success may mean different things for different people depending upon their value system. A priest, a politician, a social worker, a business executive, a student or a housewife may use altogether a unique set of parameters to measure ones success.

5. Does success mean to achieve one thing and sacrifice or ignore other things in life? Or is Success then add up of ongoing realization, satisfaction through desired results, concerning actions, status, relationships or wealth?
We have seen people who focused on money became rich but have miserable health or relationships as they completely ignored those areas. You can't be hugely popular and yet be spiritually poor. Balance is very important. A truly happy person is happy about all areas of life. And that is what makes one truly successful.

6. Then, what is True Success?
That is up to you because up to a large extent its influenced by your value system. But it is not mere accomplishing of a set of goals. It is much beyond that, that brings overall inner happiness. Isnt it?

7. Be happy to be successful.Because when you are happy, you see the world that is full of wonderful objects and opportunities.
You thank God for that you already have everything you need.
You are focused on positive things in life, and thus you keep receiving more and more positive things.

There is no end to materialistic greed In fact theres a very fine thin line between ambitions and greed
This material greed results in unethical practices and corruption
People when indulge into such practices forget thatDeath is inevitable and all the material possessions will be left behind.

9. Vacuum of contentment
Today the world is realizing this vacuum of happiness and contentment. The people have started moving towards what has been recommended by Ancient Vedic texts the holistic view towards life using 4-fold 4-phase path.
Success is being seen as all-inclusive quotient of material, emotional and spiritual gratification.
