A Prize In Every Box

This is a place for the random musings and life experiences of one Fliven, who looks for life's fun little surprises, even when its in a giant box of stale, tasteless foodstuffs.

Webring Post #4

In this, the fourth installment of the most widely varied webring posts ever, the topic will be My Definition of Success.

So I am going to define success as "what happens when the victories and accomplishments in life outnumber the losses." Example. Cooking a delicious bass without burning it is a victory. Cooking a delicious bass and burning it would be a loss. Cook a LOT of delicious bass without burning many, and you would be considered a "successful bass cooker". Works the same way with most things...business, driving, money, eating right, etc. My little formula does not always work. You could be a successful health nut, and still get lung cancer or a heart attack. Or have a successful relationship (bitterness...rising...) and have it ultimately not work out. Ascribe that to the unfairness of life, or conflicting interest of successes.

Another thing is that there is no ultimate success. You cannot be "a success". You can be successful, but there will always be more challenges to face and more bass to cook.

Also, Successful Bass Cooker would be a great name for a band.

That's pretty much all I've got on the subject. :)
