Paper Rating: Word Count: 299 Approx Pages: 1

Most people think of success as getting rich or having a loving wife. But not all people think like that. Some people don't need to be rich to be successful, because they do something that other people see as memorable.

When you think of success, you usually think of

famous people first. In my mind, the first person that I thought of was Bill Gates. Bill Gates

is a famous and successful person. People see him as a

symbol of success. Most people consider him to be

very successful. My teacher describe's, "He is just a little bit smarter than the smart person.  People only like to talk about beautiful things. Nobody we talked about had been kicked out of school. They never thought about how difficult that person had work.

If you are a Christian, you will believe Jesus

Christ was very successful, because he washed

our sins away with his blood. He was crucified by

the Romans for us. But some people who are not Christians have a different view of Jesus Christ. They may consider him a loser. Because he was not rich, was not welcomed by other people, and claimed himself to be a god. But the meaning of his success is different than our meaning of success. The meaning of his success is that he died for our sins on the cross.

For myself, success is getting respect from my friends. I don't need to get rich to become

successful. I don't want my name to be memorable to other people. I just want to have a happy family and a loving wife of my own. That is my definition of success.

People have their own definition of success. Some

people think success is money, and some people think that success is fame.
