Others speak perhaps less conventionally of successfully raising children and grandchildren.
That is not what most people mean by success, but a good case can be made for that achievement being especially important; and different societies have regarded the work of bringing up the next generation as critically important. Let me say what I mean by success: success is the ability of individuals to reach their own goals and achieve their own purposes.
I do not mean goals such as becoming a movie star, or winning the Nobel Prize in literature or becoming the President of the United States. Or simply making more money than everybody else. By that standard virtually no one is successful. But I think it is possible for these individuals and others to find in other ways those satisfactions that are associated with those lofty achievements, namely, recognition, admiration and a sense of importance. However, I recognize that certain particular accomplishments tend to mean success to most people.

These are: finding a job and a career that has status in our society and that brings with it enough financial reward that it is possible to live comfortably. This is the familiar picture of a house with a picket fence. The particular kind of work they will engage in will otherwise vary widely. Part of this success—in the eyes of most people—is a loving family, usually including children--and good friends. And having a place in the community. The children of affluent, educated parents are more likely themselves to be well-educated and ultimately employed successfully in good jobs.
I take this to be an outgrowth of plain good luck. Most truly distinguished individuals acknowledge the influence of luck in their lives. If they attend the right college, they are likely to meet and marry individuals who are, themselves, successful. Every lucky step along the way gives more opportunities. Also, for reasons that I do not need to belabor, it is advantageous for an individual to be especially bright, unusually attractive, talented, and, even tall and strong.
None of these qualities guarantees success, but they all help. But put together they will not add up to very much unless certain other qualities of mind and personality are present. In other words, having all these advantages will not prevent some people from botching up; and we all know someone like that. There is one overriding quality of mind and personality that weighs more strongly than anything else in determining eventual success.
7 Steps for Creating the Life YOU Want
It is character. Eventual success depends more than anything else on the ability to keep striving in the face of disappointment and rejection. And failure. I have been struck over the years by how many people fail despite growing up with all the advantages of money and good health; and by how many others there are who start off impaired and impeded by emotional and physical illness and being born into dysfunctional and abusive families, and still manage to succeed. Included in those success stories is a man who could not attend school growing up because of a phobia which then prevented him from leaving his neighborhood, but who ended up owning three or four food franchises.

As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others. If you never try and take great opportunities, or allow your dreams to become realities, you will never unleash your true potential. So voice your ideas, don't be afraid to fail, and certainly don't be afraid to succeed. Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures. Realizing that you are responsible for what happens next in your life is both frightening and exciting. And when you do, that becomes the only way you can become successful, because excuses limit and prevent us from growing personally and professionally.
They're wrong. Successful people know this. They invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change their perception so that it can benefit their lives. Successful people know that making small continual improvement every day will be compounded over time, and give them desired results.
Fear of failure or even fear of success often prevents us from taking an action and putting our creation out there in the world. But a lot of opportunities will be lost if we wait for the things to be right. That's why they choose one thing and then beat it into submission.
Detach from the things you cannot control, and focus on the ones you can, and know that sometimes, the only thing you will be able to control is your attitude towards something. Successful people know that in order to accomplish their goals, they will have to say NO to certain tasks, activities, and demands from their friends, family, and colleagues.
In the short-term, you might sacrifice a bit of instant gratification, but when your goals come to fruition, it will all be worth it. There are people who are less accomplished in their personal and professional life, and there are people who are more accomplished than us. If you spend time with those who are behind you, your average will go down, and with it, your success.
But if you spend time with people who are more accomplished than you, no matter how challenging that might be, you will become more successful. There will be a lot of people who like that niche, and there will be individuals who don't. And no matter what you do, you won't be able to make the entire market like you.
The only thing you can do is remain authentic, improve and provide value every day, and know that the growing number of "haters" means that you are doing important things. Unless your goals depend on either, you should minimize or even eliminate your dependency on them, and direct that time towards things that can enrich your life.
