Success is relative. My relatives in Cebu measures success if you have your own business card. They saw that I had my own business card, therefore they regard me as successful.
That made my eyebrow raise. Am I? It's just a business card... that I made... using my own computer. Having your own computer is even more big deal than having a business card.
Thus, I am even more successful in their eyes. I am successful because I have my own business card that I myself made in my own computer.
Before that, I didn't realize that I was successful until my business card proved that to me.
