I have the ultimate definition of success that I've spent years thinking about but what do I get out of sharing it?

"How do you define success? What has impacted your definition of success"

Well... it has a word suck in it... so it must be an essential part of equation.

@p1 he was thinking defining success as "how well you accomplish what you plan to do" then basically elaborating that people have different intentions for different things and your success should be measured on what is important to you and what you ultimately want to achieve whether it be monetary, philanthropy, influencing others etc

That's just existentialism

💰

I'm applying to Kellogg as well and don't feel like diluting my answer. Using that theme of "it's whatever you determine it to be" is like the most common and generic answer you can possibly come up with lol

Answer shouldn't be a non answer. It should be how HE defines success. Not a generic roadmap for everyone to find success.

His first line was that then went into what his goals or values are that determine success

@D1 ^^^

The thesis shouldn't be so generic. The first line should be about his own story of success. The essay should be personal and full of his own stories as to when he achieved success previously and/or what he's done that is preparing him for long term success, whatever that means. I applied to business schools this year and wrote one very personal essay that included anecdotes from my upbringing, college, and work with one unifying theme of what I wanted to do in the future. I applied it to several prompts: "tell me more about yourself", Kellogg's "how have you grown in the past and how do you plan to grow", "what is leadership to you" etc. This should be the same- it's not about sourcing success definition answers from fishbowl, it's about pulling out the relevant anecdotes from his life to string it into a story about future success (or leadership or whatever).
