The essence of 'Success'

Thus no single human being is intrinsically any more successful than another human being. Success exists only in the judgments that one or more humans make about another; no one can acquire success except by performing to a criteria set by the judgments of others. If the true definition(s) of success did indeed exist solely in the minds of each person, then we would all be able to claim to be successful, and therefore success would be null and void in the absence of any “unsuccessful” people.

Sublime.
