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…

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…

‘I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in live as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.’ –Booker T. Washington. Oh my goodness. Reading this sentence brought forth so many neurons firing in my brain that I knew this…

Life is struggle. From the first gasp of the newborn in his struggle for breath, the sharper human beings amongst us quickly gather that they are not in for a leisurely stroll through their days. All men encounter challenge, yet the very concept of challenge, is in of itself, relative. For Mr. Washington, and for…

A great opportunity to face off against the welfare-society, everybody’s-special, politically-correct Gramscian-derived drivel that encourages us to forget our roots, most especially in a Darwinian sense, and follow our fellow lemmings (false story, but the myth lives on) over the cliff. It’s all about struggles for scarce resources, whether economic, social, cultural or whatever. The…

Struggle is a more important measure of success than accomplishment? That is a completely assnine statement. I struggle at blackjack and the measure of my success or the lack there of is the fact that I lose all my money when I am playing. This question would not have even been relavant if not for…

Booker T. Washington stated, ‘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.’ This quote is similar to the philosophy alluded to in the oft-repeated mantra that the journey matters more…

There is little doubt that the journey to success is indeed important and that it can have a profound impact on your character. In the extreme, consider someone who is simply born into privilege and success. Can this person truly appreciate the hard-work, sacrifice and committment that was most likely necessary to provide them with…

I agree with Booker Washington’s opinion that success should be measured not so much by results as by the character of the striver. It always irritates me when I find people admiring well-known personages like Donald Trump and Bill Gates, both of which started from not very modest surroundings and have achieved much. Bill Gates…

We take it for granted nowadays that we have to succeed in life. Yes, people argue about what really constitutes ‘success’ — is it personal fulfillment? A lucrative career? But underlying all these debates is the shared conviction that our lives should have some purpose. From this point of view, it is hard to disagree…
