The above statement is very much true that many people know how to attain success but few know how to make the best use of it. How do we define success? Being famous? Being rich and affluent? Having powers? Winning elections? Is it people who have countless fans? Being a well know laureate or an academician? Or we can say people who have excel in their careers? We all know the meaning of success but then each person defines it in own way. Being successful means lot of money and having all the luxuries of life. Such people do not have to care about anything in life. Is it how we can define success?
Taking some of the examples of successful people like Mahatma Gandhi is now international figure. People still remember him look upon them as their heroes. If we look into the field of Arts and literature today also people recite poems of Rabindranath Tagore and William Shakespeare. There works are still alive and are used in schools and colleges. Michael Jackson famous singer across globe also started his career at very early age and even after his death people are listening to his songs and his albums are best sellers today.
These people are all dead but even after their death they are remembered. It was not because they were rich or affluent but they all were excellent and dedicated in their field. These people were successful in whatever they did. But they were never aware of the fact that there work would be even acclaimed today. We can call them as successful people because they never thought of success but they believed in what they wanted to do.
On the other hand if we see Hitler ,Tiger Woods General Dyer these people had money, power but they could not make the best use of it resulting Hitler and General Dyer today are know for their barbaric act and Woods at the same time being assailed for his behavior for being a nymphomaniac.
Looking both the side if we can say success can make people better or bad depending upon how people want to utilize its success. Because to achieve success you need the stairs not escalators .
