    Other.... any of the above. Success is what you want it to be. And we all have our own goals in life.

    For me personally, again I'd say any of the above. Honestly I wouldn't consider it success in my life if I have achieved only one of the poll options.

    Success is achieving a goal that I set out to accomplish, but I'm not sure that I believe in a notion of fixed success... i.e. I am successful in this moment and therefore I am successful, period.

    These days I tend to follow my heart more than any model of success. Putting too many expectations on the future creates a lot of unnecessary pressure. If my heart feels right and satisfied then I know I am doing the right thing.

    You have a major ax to grind about your high taxes. While I agree with you, sometimes it's comical to here you complain so much. Why don't you just share the wealth? Please?

    Making a difference. This would include raising my children to be happy, healthy and productive adults who grow up knowing they can do and be anything they choose to be. It would also include doing what I need to do in my job, to make sure that adults with developmental disabilities get the care and assistance they need to succeed.
