Defining Success

Success; just what does it mean?
When I asked someone, they tried to explain:

If you end up where you should have been all along,
When you end up happy and singing a song,
When you can rejoice for others, not just for yourself,
If you can accept that not all things are meant to be
exactly what was understood by you or by me,
When you let go of your own feelings and rely on God,
When you release hold on the bar to help out a friend.
If you are glad for someone else, despite your own pain.
When you can congratulate someone else on their victory,
That is when you have found true success.
Under those terms, I believe you have succeeded
and now, so can I.
