Success is a subjective term. For some, the term resonates with financial stability; it is about getting into a college they had always dreamt of joining, others believe success is making their loved ones proud, and then there are people for whom success is being happy from within. It can be said that the term ‘success’ is an amalgamation of all these definitions. When a person reaches a point of self-satisfaction and internal happiness, it is the point where they can declare themselves as successful.
