    Just wondering how some of you would define the word "successful" here on black hat world. I myself would define the word not in the amount of money you make with your internet ventures but having your bills paid on time, a good state of mind with what you are doing, and the ability to help others like others have helped you online.

    Success can be anything you want it to be... just let me know your thoughts.

    Success to me is having the health/time/money/freedom to do what you want... whenever you feel like doing it.

    Earning tons of money is great, but if you work 18 hour days it doesn't really matter how much you make. You need the time/health/freedom to enjoy your wealth.

    "The favorable termination of anything attempted." Though that's Raymond H's Definition. Pesonally, I'd define success as achieving desirable results through self correction.

    It's when you are getting laid, and the woman wakes up during the session and doesn't scream rape.

    Her screaming rape when she wakes up would only happen to you... I have never had to kidnap a female to get laid.

    Asking takes too much time.

    Success for me is being 6 feet ABOVE the ground when I wake up tomorrow. :)

    All kidding aside though, success means different things to different people.

    For some people, success is just being able to feed their family and put a roof over their heads . . . Then again, some people never feel successful - even if they have millions of dollars.

    Actually for me, success is being able to do what I love and get paid for it. To set my own hours, to be my own boss and to enjoy life.
