“Success is the peace that comes with knowing your accomplishments have purpose.”
– Hutch Putnam –
Success is a word that really hard to define, because everyone will have a different definition for this word. In fact, there no exact definition for the word "success". For a student, maybe the success means to pass all courses of the semester; for a business man, signing a importance contract and get a lot of money are successes; and for a president, leading the country to develop and make the people have a better life are success. For me, I also have my own definition for the word "success". When I was a kid, I really want to be a scientist, but after I become mature, my thinking has become more mature and my definition of success also changes. I think the success is not only to be a kind of person or to get some things, I think people should do more things for being successful.

When I was a kid, they just told me a lot of things about the business, and I'm also very interesting about that; at that time I already know Bill Gates, he is the richest people of the whole world and I think he's the most successful people on the earth. He is very famous in China, and Bill Gates affects my thinking about the success. I want to start my own business, I think to have my own business is a success. If I only can work for others, I think I can't do anything I want and will never be successful, the boss will always command me to work for him and get more money to him. In the article, "Someone Is Stealing Your Life," the author also maintains that the employer and the employee are not equal, the author mention that "if the people who do the work don't own any part of the product and don't have any power over what happens to their enterprise - they are being robbed." (Ventura, 254) The author said most of the employee are robbed by the employer, I agree the author's view and I think to avoid this kind of situation I have to start my own business for being successful, and this is...
