I am of the opinion that this thinking is simply a person’s desire to rationalize their failure to accomplish their goal into a positive light. This is not to say that the idea is bad. I believe that overall it is a very good coping system for the person in question. Failure to achieve a…

What is the nature of success? Success is a soft term and has many different methods of being measured. A common measure of success in western societies is in the accumulation of goods and currency. Another measure of success is the respect one is given by one’s peers. Booker T. Washington posits that success must…

If we take into consideration the history behind Booker T. Washington’s statement and the era in which he made it, his point of view becomes that much more understandable. 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…

To many people, a measure of success comes from material gains, or a position of power, or the influence they can exert. All of these are obvious and justifiable yardsticks of a successful life or career. However, are they the best way to pass or fail someone’s life? Booker T. Washington offers an alternate view…

Competition is the life blood of every democratic society. The struggle to succeed in every walk of life is both encouraged and often rewarded. Accomplishment, earned or not is a visible measure of success, considered the end justifying the means for many individuals. This is shown not only in human societies, for example in democratic…

This position is one of the widely held cliche that permeate the modern world, cliches that receive wide lip service but are in fact, bunk. Most importantly this view ignores the fact most people struggle without any success at all. According to this axiom these people should be the pinnacle of humanity all. Yet this…

I believe success should be measured by the outcome of one’s life more than the struggles one has overcome to reach the outcome of his life. If anything is to be measured, it should be as objective as possible. It is easier to evaluate an outcome more than it is the parameters determining said outcome…
