Success is a combination of letters which has been repeated in everyday life nowadays. However, one of the biggest problems might be faced by humankind is to understand precisely the concept of success (Jordan, G.M., 2013). Unfortunately, success is literally a word which cannot be described in words. Defining success effectively, people may keep their eyes on some successful stories of the great people. This essay will do a research on two legends’ success, René Descartes and Walt Disney, followed by cited their famous quotes: “Cogito ergo sum” and “If you can dream it, you can do it” (Brainy Quote, 2013). After comparing and evaluating their successful stories, it illustrates the difference aspects of the meaning of success in life; one opinion of having succeeded is to identify someone’s own intrinsic figure; whereas another perspective is far beyond. Being successful could be based on the realization of their dream and motivation to make it become reality; success is seemed to be able to see as an extrinsic tangible object by the result of reaching human’s dream.
