This document allowed me to enumerate, elaborate and visualize how the (my) brain sees this idea. What I associate with the idea of achievement. As you’ll see there are two poles: success and failure, one positive and one negative.
- to succeed
- to win
- antonym= to lose/lost
- antonyms: defeat to give up – to surrender – to abandon
- antonyms – failure – to fail
- dissatisfaction/ insatisfaction
III. to achieve
- to attain
It may well be that different cultures, different backgrounds see this differently. To each his own!
