The Definition of Success

Success to a man 
Is like food for a dog
He wants it
Nourishes it
Cradles it
And loves and basks in it
 
Sucess means different things to different people
To me it means accomplishing something out of my comfort zone
It can be as small as making my bed every morning
Or as large as shooting the winning three pointer in basketball
 
Failure is the first step to success
And trying again is the second 
Most frustrating step
 
I am like a droplet of water
Grating against my cemented goals
Until I wear them down and accomplish them
Pushing against the boundaries of life
I bubble and gurgle in happiness 
Surrounded by those I love and care for
My ringlets curl out and echo spreading across the clear as ice surface
Ideas traveling across the globe
Unstoppable 
Revolutionary
