  1. I agree with your views on this.

    It is unfortunate though that there are people who do not understand what success means. They usually count success as receiving a material reward. But until we are satisfied with what we have, whatever we do will seem unfulfilled. Never giving up is hard but once we stick by it we start living like it. Then giving up doesn't even cross our minds.

    Stay motivated! :)

  3. You know BB!

    Never giving up is my definition of success... only never giving up means to live each day from the beginning to the end no matter what!

    Thank you for your wide meaning haiku!!

    1. Yes, Od, we'll succeed when we don't give up! The second part of your comments is so meaningful. Thank you so much for your inspiring comments and for reading my simple Haiku.

  4. I am in agreement with Sui's comment in regards to the meaning of success. It's not always for material gain, yet unfortunately, because we are human, this is what we often look for (even me sometimes).

    The visual image for this poem is a good one as well.

    1. It means a lot. Success is for happy life, exams, work, relationship and lots more. I agree it isn't for material gain only. Thank you for your nice comments. :)

  6. Success doesn't always come of you being a winner..giving our best and full determination in each stage or opportunity we have with a smile is what I consider to be success..passing by Balqis have a great day ;)

  12. Hello Balqis.
    I look at success as being you reap what you so. If you only put in half an effort, that's what you'll get back.
    Nice imagery.
    Thanks for sharing.

  13. Blogs are what make a people interactive and social. The most popular blogs have a very interactive community who voice their opinions on posts frequently. This post is one of them. I liked it.
