Never let others define success for you . . .

Merriam Webster defines success as: the correct or desired result of an attempt.
Never let others define success for you, set a goal and reach it.

If you reached the goal (attempt) that you set for yourself then you have achieved success. If not, then don’t give up until you have and you will never fail.

You only fail when you give up.

Quote of the day; Make good art . . .

“Sometimes life is hard. Things go wrong—in life and in love and in business and in friendship and in health and in all the other ways that life can go wrong. And when things get tough, this is what you should do: make good art. . . . Someone on the internet thinks what you’re doing is stupid or evil or it’s all been done before: make good art. Probably things will work out somehow, eventually time will take the sting away, and it doesn’t even matter. Do what only you can do best: make good art.”
― Neil Gaiman
