Describe a success in your life – IELTS Cue Card
Describe a success in your life
You should say:
- what it is
- when you achieved it
- how you achieved it
- and explain how important this success in your life is/was
Success means different things to everyone. For Elon Musk it could be colonising Mars, for Jeff Bezos it could be making Amazon an omnipresent service across the world, for the house help employed in my home, it could be sending their kids to school and watching them grow older and get well-paying jobs. Success means different things to everyone, and to me, this is what it means. Success, to me, is not something that can be measured by money, or scores, or grades or a designation – I know that if I define success by those terms, I will get caught in always wanting more, and as a result, I will never be successful or content with my life. Success is what makes you happy, and that’s the goal for me. I define success by my happiness. Being kind makes me happy, living a fulfilling life makes me happy, my family and friends and my little hobbies make me happy. That is success to me. I achieved it when I let go of material beliefs and refused to get caught in this mad rat race that the world is having. I gave it a good thought and realised that if I define my life and happiness with these parameters, I will never be happy because I’ll always want to be more successful. So I decided to be happy instead, and success followed. This success was probably one of the most important in my life as it gave me a newfound perspective and appreciation for things that I just did not see before. It lifted a weight off my shoulders and I am grateful for it. It is vital for each person to define his/her happiness and success because it’s your life, and you should set your boundaries.
