    Hmmmm, I could only vote for one option. Don't think that's what you intended.

    Success to me is arriving at what some call critical mass (enough money to pay bills with enough discretionary money left over), living life on my terms (critical mass helps a lot with that), a good family life, pride in my accomplishments, and the ability to help others.

    If I raise my three children to be moral, upstanding individuals who care about others, then I'll consider myself a success.

    Re: How do you personally define success?

    My selection is "Making a positive difference in the world," and the reasons are simple.

    By setting out to make a positive difference in the world, you necessarily are going to be living "A moral and ethical life," and you will be setting a good example that should lead to "Having a good family," "Being a true follower of your religion," is what drives me to want to make a difference in the first place.

    "Feeling good about yourself/life/optimism," is a by product of the others for me, Being "the boss" early in my twenties helped to make me who I became and helped make all the other things possible, such as "Living life on my terms," "Material wealth/high income," becomes less important to anyone who learns early on what life is really all about.

    Having had hundreds of employees who look to you for guidance, fair treatment and even inspiration from time to time you learn a great deal more than any college class or book other than the Bible will ever teach you.

    I have been fortunate enough to have talked with more people over the air waves of Radio and TV than most people ever dream of and have been blessed by holding public office and I can tell you that the reward for having you heart in the right place and doing your all to "make positive difference" you will be rewarded in many ways.

    It's a domino effect in a positive way that if you haven't tried it I recommend it. The was an old Life Cereal TV ad that had a catch phrase that caught on for long time, and it fits here.

    "Try it you'll like it!"
