Goals and the CPA exam

CPA Success in a Word

What's in a word?  Well, according to a notable psychologist at Stanford University a word may weigh heavily on how we shape our thoughts. Lera Boroditsky has been "intrigued by an age-old question whose modern form dates to 1956, when linguist Benjamin Lee Whorf asked whether the language we speak shapes the way we think and see the world.  If so, then language is not merely a means of expressing thought, but a constraint on it, too."

So what about the word "success" and in this case namely "CPA Exam success" - what does it mean, in a word?  CPAnet conducted a quick poll from its forum members on what passing the CPA Exam means to its members in one word.  There were some repeats along the way, however, the experiment resulted in a myriad of meanings.  Here's some of the "words", ... what word motivates you and inspires you toward your CPA Exam success goal?
