The Meaning of Success

1. How many of you want to be successful? Do you agree with the opinion of the accompanying article’s author that, “Only 1% of you may go on to fulfil your aspiration of becoming a CEO of a large company or leading a successful startup!” Support your argument with valid reasons.
2. What do you mean by success? How do you measure it? Is it static/dynamic or a moving target? Is it in being successful in lifestyle or in being successful in legacy?
3. Once, while addressing a gathering of youngsters from premier B-schools, the author of the accompanying article asked, “You worked very hard to get here. However, do you still have that passion, drive, dreams, determination and a huge appetite to learn what brought you here?” There is an often quoted criticism that the graduates from the best B-schools or country for that matter hit the deck at a very young age because they seem to suffer from the legacy conundrum.
Do you agree with this? If yes, why? If no, why not?
