What is success…? How do you define success…? And most importantly, are you a successful person? Do you relate success with your job title, the size of your bank balance or the schools or college you are sending your children to? Or the five-star hotels you are able to afford? A mediocre would definitely define success in terms of money.The Oxford dictionary defines success as, “The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.”
We all define success differently.Your idea of being a success might be different from mine. So, the first thing you need to do in order to be successful in life is to decide. What success means to you as an individual. Never mind what it means to others, what it means to you?
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.– Albert Schweitzer
For me, Success is happiness- the feeling of peace and tranquility.
A successful life is one that’s lived through following your own dreams rather than blindly following someone else’s path.
Success is living each moment fully and not worrying about what future has in store for you.
Making people around you happy and be a source of happiness in someone else’s life is a success too.
Having a loving family and Spouse is a success.
Staying positive in negative times is a success.
Making a difference in a world can also be described as a success.
Having the ability to laugh and more often is a success.
Enjoying simple things in life, for example eating pizza with friends, or watching a movie together can be a source of immense happiness, you don’t necessarily have to aim big to achieve success.You ability to compensate and enjoy simple things to the fullest is actually the SUCCESS
Sleeping well without having any worries and grudges is a success.
In short, if your healthy, happy and your basic needs are met, which includes food, clothing and shelter you are truly successful. Success is a state of mind. It could mean many different things to different people. But if at the end of the day, your happiness is compromised, or you are not at peace with yourself, that’s when, all your definitions of success and its mantras fail. Being positive and happy in the world with full of negativities such as fear, anxiety, envy, jealousy and rivalry, is really an effort, and hence makes you a successful person. As peace and happiness are things that even money can’t buy….so what is success to you?
