Success is important. Success is worth pursuing.
Career success is often measured by title, authority, recognition, and income.
Presidents are seen as more successful than vice-presidents. Being in charge of 100 people is seen as more successful than being in charge of 10 people. Receiving a national award is seen as being more successful than recognition in your office. Making $250,000 a year is considered more successful than making $80,000 a year.
People invest an enormous amount of time and energy in working to be successful. It’s a good thing to be successful, to be seen as successful, and to have the resources to do what you want in your life for yourself and other people.
