We were born to work. We must achieve something great in a limited time. This is our duty - a duty that every man or woman should bear. Depending on how this duty will be beard, we may say whether this person was successful or not.

In a book the word "success" was defined as a favourable result or wished for ending through the achievement of goals. That is, if one attains a desired goal through achievement, he or she can be considered as a successful one. And the only way to achieve your goal is through hard work.

Many people define the word "success" as being rich, which means having a great amount of money and owning valuable materials. Nowadays, this definition of success is thought of as not the most appropriate because there is more to success than just being wealthy or popular. These people should not forget that success is only awarded to those who have worked for it and those who deserve it.

Success is not easily obtainable. That is why I can fully agree with the famous hairstylist's quotation, that the only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.
