Success is not easily defined. To many people, success may mean a strong marriage, enough money in the bank and a fulfilling job. Yet, Bill Gates or Lee Kuan Yew will define success differently.

Success is, therefore, a very personal issue. Most times, people define success by outside definitions. However, the definition of success must come from within. Success means that you have the vision to be all that you can be!
