If you Had to Choose....

Achieving personal success and making all your dreams come true is not easy; it takes hard work and serious dedication. Women oftentimes are forced to juggle and sacrifice in order to do it all. But what if you could only achieve success in one aspect of your personal life? What role means the most to you?

If one finds their passion and ultimate purpose in life, it would have to be career. One's career ultimately defines, motivates, and is one's sense of self. I know there are stay at home moms out there, for which I have great respect. But if you are a single woman in the USA today, your main purpose and drive should be to focus on your career.

Career. It's 2007 I realize there is no knight in shining armor who is going to save me. I want to be a successful writer with a vaca house in Spain and who is going to give these things to me? Well I am of course!

Motherhood & marriage should be hand in hand. I want to be a mother very badly but I won't do it until I get married.

Other - I would say family as a whole. Marriage and motherhood would be included in this.

A long time ago, I would have said love. Now, it's motherhood. We have five kids between us and I'm doing everything I can to make sure that they grow to be confident enough to achieve their dreams.

Career and then motherhood next. I feel broody. As far as giving to others, we do that together. My husband is very nice that way. He's kind.

What would you use to measure success in motherhood or marriage? For me love is that measurement.

If I could find a way to really touch people's lives and help the world through philanthropy, that would be the most important thing for me to do.

i was thinking motherhood, but i don't want to be a mother unless i had achieved success in love with the father of my children. so i chose love instead. and success in marriage doesn't necessarily mean you've succeeded in love either.

I voted for love, because without it, none of the other choices would mean all that much to me.

I voted career. I guess that's all that's on my mind these days.

I would have to be love. If you have love, everything else just falls into place.

I said career. I do not want to define my life by a relationship or even my children....I have worked way too hard to be a teacher to give it up. If I had my career, I would have children...that I love! See if you find that one can bring you all of those things.

Yeah, me too. Love is a big one, and to me once I get that, I will achieve other great things like marriage and motherhood. Success is important, but not the most important.
