    So those with no children are not 'successful' in life?

    Re: What defines Success in life?

    Success, to me, is being content with what I have and who I count as close friends....

    My Dad, a businessman through and through, defined success as who remember his name. I define it as who remembers my name, and smiles.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    If you are a man...how much horsepower your car/truck/motorcycle has, how many times you had free sex with someone that you thought was way better looking then you are, how many hours of volunteer work you did and how many posts you have on debatepolitics.com (less is more for the last one).

    If you are a woman...I have no idea.

    Actually, I agree with this.

    Of course, I don't think my 'maker' is God -- but you gotta be right with your own personal universe, whatever it is. If you're an atheist like me, that might mean being right with the world and where you want to see society going.

    Or it could be anything else, but I agree fundamentally that you need to feel good about where you fit in to the grand scheme of life.

    The results, thus far, speak well for the quality of the members here.
    I had to think about 25 seconds in order to make a selection...and, when young, in the previous century, I may have voted for (one), rather than (two)....

    Re: What defines Success in life?

    Success in life is defined by the individual. If you think you are successful, then you are.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
