Howard Whitman asked 2 questions about  success: 1. Do others feel you are a success? 2. Do you see yourself as a success:? He contended that you will not enjoy success if you only based it on other people"s opinion . You should be able to feel and think that you have actually succeeded.You should set goals which you intend to achieve and map out strategies to achieve the goals. The goal setting consist of the following steps:
1. Decide on what you really want in life. This should cover every area of your life.
2.Break that desire into smaller goals and set specific time to achieve each
3. Arrange the goals according to their priority
4. Begin at once to work on the goals, avoid procrastination as much as possible.
5.Periodically evaluate yourself to measure your progress
6. Find ways to reward your efforts when you achieve any of the smaller goals.
If these spteps are consistently followed you will become a success in all area of life. I said in all areas of life because it is good to achieve balance in all areas. Read this important book as to get more points on success
                DO YOU FEEL SUCCESSFUL?
In the book UNIVERSITY OF SUCCESS, Howard Whitman identified two main criteria of success: i. Do others think you are a success? ii. Do you think you are a success? You need to see yourself as successful before you can truly enjoy the success. If your feelings are based on the opinion of other people, then you will be feeling miserable all the time. You should think and feel that you have actually succeeded. In my previous article, i defined success as accomplishment of an aim or purpose or having a favourable outcome. It is important therefore that you set the goals to be accomplished by yourself. Are you interested in attaining financial success? See this important book for details

Looking at the extent of poverty all over the world, one would feel like envying the rich people of this world. Instead of envy however, it is better to find out what the rich people know and do with the aim of copying these things so that we ourselves can be rich like them. Below are some of the things i find out:
1. Rich people believe in abundance: The rich people believe that the world is filled with great abundance. This help them to do away with poverty thinking. Is it strange that they are rich?
2. Rich people decided to be rich: Many of the rich people made a conscious decision to be rich. This is what Napoleon Hill called desire in his book titled THINK AND GROW RICH.
3. Rich people surround themselves with rich people: They associate with people who sympathize with their goals. They are ready to learn from others that are already rich
4. Rich people have more than one source of income: In the book MULTIPLE STREAMS OF INCOME, Robert G. Allen showed how important it is for individuals to have more than one source of income. He identified various avenues where these streams ould be created.
5. They set goals of investing instead of spending: According to Robert G. Allen in his book whih i referred to above, rich people value money. They treat money as seed which could be planted to yield more money.
From these points raised above it is very clear why the rich people are rich and if we can cultivate these habits we shall be rich also.
