What, in your opinion, is the secret to success?
For me, at the moment, it's more of a "key" than a secret--a key device, that is. It's called a lighter. It enables me to light my cigarette. Success!
Care to be more specific?
The key to success is being yourself.
When I am a success, I will let you know.
any day in which I am not consumed by the mice and squirrels counts as a stunning success.
It's no secret at all. Hard work and perseverance.
The key to "success" is defining it first.
Really...it depends on what you consider success. Someone can be a success in business and make a ton of money...but utterly fail to have any meaningful relationships with other human being. Some people have great success with friends and family and love...and live a life working a blue collar job. Who is to say who is more successful?
Balance and Hard Work.
Yeah, it's a stereotype, but it's true. Oh, and when it comes to being a writer it helps to also be a hermit or just very antisocial in general. Mental disorders are also a plus.
salty beat me to it...
it first of all depends on what you consider to be 'success'...
Oh wait.... that is the way to win a man's heart.
(salty and maia beat me to what I was going to say)
I hate to be a buzzkill but the quickest way to a mans heart is not food, it's his zipper... ZING!... /sigh, so lame of me. Sorry.
I thought the fastest way to a man's heart was a nine-inch stiletto.
I think ultimately it's determination.
Is success getting to a man's heart? If it is..then a stiletto will bring success. If you have other ideas of success...well...they need different approaches. You may need honesty and loyalty to succeed in a relationship. Lies and betrayal may help you succeed in business. It is largely situational.
You know, I think I'd have to agree with you there. But I was watching some program on the TV and heard that as I opened the thread, so I had to post it.
Actually, I think that it would be a lot easier with a carving knife personally
But I think I'd have to agree with Carmina on the whole success thing. Determination would have to be the key to success in any area really. Whether it is determination to succeed in the honorable way, or the deceptive way. Determination would have to be the key to success and failure.
We all feel compelled to attain this idea of success, but it's so vague... I'll let you know once I've defined it.
Probably gratitude or else you'll never feel you're a success. And then after that, a good work ethic, etc.
Destroying all that is around you and constantly reinventing yourself.
Like normality, it's a relative term, specific to your circumstances.
Or wasn't it EXCESS?
Anything I have succeeded in over the years I would attribute to discipline.
