The key to success?
Okay, in all seriousness, it all depends upon what you mean by success.
In it's broadest sense, "success" is a subjective standard: one person's success is not necessarily a failure to another, but it might be wholly meaningless. For example, many people consider Donald Trump to be a success, but to me he's a pompous greedy goober who would probably be bankrupt if not for television bailing him out.
At it's most basic level, the key to personal success is achieving an overall track of improvement at the things that are important to you. (There is an overarching layer of societal importance here, obviously the thing that one calls important shouldn't be something deleterious to people or society generally.)
Thus it is not really a proper comparative standard unless you have a focused set of parameters upon which you can agree. (Although comparatively speaking I think Donald Trump has more going for him than the suckers who tuned in to hear him say "you're fired"...
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
