My belief on this topic is that success, as defined by realization of self- or externally- defined goals, is impossible without both struggle and accomplishment. To call struggle without accomplishment not successful flies in the face of ostensible American cultural values regarding respect for others and most importantly respect for hard word, but let’s face…

I agree with Booker Washington that success ought to be measured by what obstacles a person overcomes. To use the other standard, and judge a person by the position that they have reached in life, is to take no account of the accidents of birth or inheritance. Success, on the other hand, depends on a…

Not that I wish to place myself at loggerheads with such a venerable figure as Booker T. Washington, but I would take issue with the very notion of ‘success’ itself. The word ‘success’ is too loaded to properly answer the question. Pardon me if I deconstruct for a moment. In America, at least, success carries…

Washington’s point is well taken, especially considering that, as former slave, he had many obstacles to overcome and yet achieved a great deal. Generally speaking, I agree with Washington’s statement. After all, the world is rife with people who have accomplished much — after a great head start, namely a family fortune. The Rockefeller brothers…

Although Booker T. Washington would argue that success should be measured by the obstacles one overcomes as opposed to the positions one attains, in today’s world, suucess is more often measured by position, money and media exposure. Obstacles overcome may ADD to the perceived degree of success, they are certainly not the determining factor. In…

I do not agree that the struggle is a more important measure of success than accomplishment because how can one determine success if the struggle is fruitless? An individual to manages to obtain a bachelors degree even though they are poor and work full-time has struggled and overcome, perhaps. But not all, and indeed in…

Struggling with Accomplishments. Struggling with an idea or a concept is, quite simply, part of life. Struggling to gain recognition and struggling to have your ideas considered are part of everyone’s experience. Everyone, that is, who has ever tried to achieve something. Might we consider any example of a person who has built something new.…

Booker T. Washington’s statement ‘I have learned that 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.’ reflects the perception that the way is the goal and not the destination. While the quote seems self…

Is struggle is a more important measure of success than accomplishment? Well, if nobody ever attempts anything, then no accomplishment will ever be attained. So struggle is at a minumum the predecessor of accomplishment. And I have become more convinced over time that failure is actually more insructive than success. If you succeed in spite…

There is no room for debate in the notion that struggle is a more valid measure of success than accomplishment. The most obvious contemporary example is that of President George W. Bush, who has achieved the highest elective office in the history of the world almost entirely on account of his position of privilege. Bush’s…
