Success is what everyone college student dreams of. My Philosophy of Success, I believe that success is being able to wake up each morning, look in the mirror and be satisfied with your life. I believe successful people have learned to appreciate all the good things in their lives. If they have food, clothing and chance to learn, they are grateful to have these things because they are fortunate compared to about 80 percent of the rest of the world. Success does not mean being extremely wealthy. It means being able to enjoy the life you have now. It means having the love and support of your family and friends. I believe that learning is one road that leads to a successful life not because having an education means earning a bigger income, but having education provides us with knowledge and critically thinking skills and a chance to meet different people and communities, which help us to know the importance of taking personal responsibility for our lives.

The first success strategy I plan on using all the time is accepting personal responsibility. There will be time when I need to focus on school and worry less about my free time. For example, I have a test to do on Monday and I have to study in order to get an “A” and pass the course. The weekend comes around and all I do is procrastinating my studying. The smart thing to do about this situation would be to think wise and use my self-management strategy. Free time will always be available but a test that determines your grade will not. This helps me to be a creator about things and keeping up with the self-management strategy.
