    Lightbulb Check

    “Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.” In today’s society, we tend to look at a persons success by the amount of money they have or the expensive things they possess. When in fact, it is not the salary of a human that makes them successful, but it is their experiences and overcome obstacles that show their success. Any man/woman can be born into this world with great riches, but it those that work hard for their achievements, and can show their triumphant through difficulties, that have achieved true success. Success is an achievement of something desired. To gain success, one must lose something in return. An example would be a student achieving an A on a test. This success cost the student time, and probably a fun weekend out with his/her friends. One must think, is one’s goal, and success worth what one has to give up for it.

    Can someone please check and see if this paragraph is gramatically correct? Thanks.
