Success is something you keep on chasing all your life, you can always temporarily feel that you have achieved something of great significance, but then something or the other pops up and you attain a certain craving for achieving that.
There was a time in my life when a few friends asked me “What I think is ‘success’ ?” & “what is it worth?”. I did not know the answer then, or at least, at that time, life & success was not that serious a topic for me.
Today, after a lot of time has passed, I can answer. Success is anything that makes you feel a little bit better than yesterday. It’s a feeling of satisfaction & calmness that your soul can feel. Success doesn’t have to be big. Even the smallest of things like keeping a promise can give you a feeling of success.
But, what happens? When someone acts, without caring for how their actions will affect the lives of others?
It comes to this very often. A few people with power, for their own benefits, change the order of how this is done & how they should be done, to please themselves. It’s a question of conscience, integrity & ethics that make for a regulated use of power. It’s a common saying “powers can be delegated, but responsibility can’t be”.
Some will say “ it’s a matter of coping with life” & “life isn’t fair”, deal with it”. It’s not the “deal with it” part, but an agonizing pain that is caused by someone’s subjective decision to suit them.
I believe, most people work extremely hard & it’s only when they review themselves that they get success. But, when success or position comes without actually working for it, it creates chaos, not for them, but for others.

Nice , but last paragraph was unexplained
Thanks, the last paragraph says that ” one must carefully use power delegated to them ” ” wrongful or not thought out use of power create a chaotic environment for other people” ” it might in due course of time affect the individual who is wrongfully using his/her power” but, initially others suffer.
