Who defines success? Please review!!!!
Confusions in expectation are taught by those who are ignorant

And absorbed by those who are weak

How can you measure my integrity by an earthly definition of success or failure?

I am not a number

I am not even a name

My identity is a reflection of my soul

Therefore my occupation needs more than education

I am not seen as successful just because my job title doesn’t reward me with idolised paper

Those who built the walls of the tallest building with the latest technology

Are you any smarter than those slaves who built the walls of the pyramids with there bare hands?

The man sitting in his brand new car, Should you be more proud than the man sitting on top of the highest mountain?

Those who get by in life with everything are you more skilled than those who get by with nothing?

A rich man can buy a house

But a poor man can build one

A rich man can buy his medicine

But a poor man can make it

Use wisdom to find the truth about importance

And without wisdom don’t ever label my character as a success or as a failure.
