No...I am certain that you can achieve your own success, or yourown interpretation of what you deem another person's success to be, but not the exact same results or the same success as others...as we are all born at different microseconds in the past, making it factually impossible to experience the same as anyone else - unless you have a time machine

"I just LOOOOVE London!". There was no denying it: I was irked.
