Michael Korda’s “Defining Success”From reading ” Defining Success ” by Michael Korda, I agree and also
disagree with Michael on his way of defining success. The first indicator of
success comes when one is making more than one is spending. There are few things
that he has left out on how to becoming a success. The things are if you are
from a rich family, how well you are educated and who you know.
Of course, if you aim at a dream that is so far beyond your reach then you
would bound to fail. I agree with this but it also depends on a person. If that
person has a low income then their dreams should not be so far of their reach.
But, if that person’s dream is so far then sometimes it could inspire them to go
for it. If they only have a small dream then it could lead to laziness and they
wouldn’t want to stress out because of a small outcome on success. Another thing
is that if that person is from a rich family then their dreams is most likely
beyond their reach. This is because they have capitol and capitol can almost buy
dreams. Why have a small dream.
Education also plays an important role in success. Not unless they got
lucky on becoming a movie star or on a cover of a magazine because they were
noticed or spotted by some important person. Without education then you wouldn’t
have any ideas where to start on how to become successful. Also, you wouldn’t
have any confidence because you would be afraid and wouldn’t know how to face
obstacles that might be in the way of your dream. Education would at least give
you ideas on where to start and how to prosper. Education makes you a more
excellent person. It helps you to socialize better with other people. It takes
more than just a common sense.
Last thing is that the person you know could make you become successful.
It’s like connection. If you know an important person such as a movie director,
actor, actress or even managers, this person could help in a big way. An
important person will know another important person if they can’t help. If you
become successful by these people then you got the easy way out. It is actually
the best way because you got the most support.
No matter how big your dream is you can still reach it even though it is
beyond your reach. You’ll only make it if you are determine and participate in
your dreams. Everyone who follows and participate in their dream and really
wants to succeed bad enough will succeed. If someone didn’t succeed, they must
not have been determine enough, or they didn’t want to succeed bad enough. If
they didn’t succeed and they say that they worked really hard and really wanted
to succeed, they are being dishonest because everyone who follows their dream
and really wants to bad enough will succeed. Once you reach your dream then go a
