Success!

Activity or possession do not equal to success. The result of your hard work and the satisfaction you receive are the true success in life. I've seen many who bragged about themselves. Every time they tell me what they do or what they have, I tell them this: "SO WHAT!?" I consider myself an artist, not because I draw and paint, but because I put my everything on what I do. Success has a different meaning depending on each person. I don't believe in failure, but I believe in success. Right now, I truly feel successful. I feel satisfied to see the result of my work and I always seek to improve myself as a person and as an artist.
