For everyone "the top" is somewhere different. This is what "the top" looks like for me, and what it isn't to me as well:
Success to me is not found in holding a certain handbag, or wearing a certain label, success is not just a paycheck or a "title". I think success is when you love yourself and accept your flaws. I think it is when you overcome your own doubts, fears and claim your own goals. I think "the top" is found when you seek out opportunities, make them happen, become who you want to be. Then after you reach your goals, you make a new one and effect and help others strive to be where they want to be as well. To me that is a successful person.
