A common logical fallacy is that of the false dilemma: the proposal of two apparently opposed ideas, with the reader or listener expected to reject one and thus acceptance of the other. The thesis that ‘struggle is a more important measure of success than accomplishment’ is an example of such a fallacy; a subtle and…

I believe that neither an arbitrary determination of ‘success’ nor the struggles one has gone through to attain it can ever fully come to show how accomplished that person feels with his or her life. I have personally met many people who would not be shown to be very ‘successful’ in life (that is, little…

Struggle can’t be a more important measure of success, as one can struggle forever and never successfully complete their goal. Struggle is important, though, and can go a long way in judging the success of an endeavor. However, to think that simply struggling against something is a more important measure of success than actually accomplishing…

How many obstacles did Washington face during his life? Probably many more than the people taking this test have faced. I think in today’s world we…

‘Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed’, quoting Booker T. Washington. This idea is one that is very close to my own philosophy. I have lived on this planet for less than 26…

‘George Bush was born standing on third base but he thinks he hit a triple’. This quote encapsulates the idea the idea that success only viewed through a lens of final achievement seems silly and narrowminded. However, taking it to the other extreme, where the outcome doesn’t matter is just as useless of a measurement.…

Luck plays a large role in accomplishment. Who your parents are, where you were born, what era you lived in, what genes you inherited. Struggle can overcome the negative luck in many cases, and enhance the positive luck. Good fortune, with no contribution from struggle, is not an accomplishment at all. In my own case,…

Ultimate success is often called genius. People recognize genius, but seldom are able to define it. One supposes that people of genius have natural talent, or at least natural talent for some task. Recent work, however, suggests that at least many who excel got there primarily through hard work. One example is Mozart. He was…
