Anthropology

Jason Brough

Jason Brough

Success is: "…often defined by achieving ones goals through hard work and effort. While I agree with this statement, I also believe success should also include the times when we fail and learn from those mistakes. Life is all about balance, if we never knew failure we would never appreciate success. Keep fighting the good fight."

Success to me is: "…knowing what you want to do, in any aspect of your life, and doing all that you can to accomplish your life's goals. This means working hard in the steps leading up to your goals, not just sliding by, helping others along the way if they share your goals or even if they don't and most importantly to stay positive. You will become a better person, friend, and have better success if you are positive, helpful, honest, trustworthy, and develop those important work ethic skills. Believe you can and you will succeed. "

Kelsey Tolbert

Kelsey Tolbert

Success to me is: "…often talked about as a culminating point. When all goals blend together in an ever so perfect harmony of productivity and prosperity. Though I have found this to be a skewed perspective. Rarely do things work out the way we anticipate, and when they do it does not build us. It is the times when everything falls through, when we are kicked around and nothing works out. That is where success is found. Those that lift their heads and stammer on, with a new found perspective and respect. They are the successful."
