Definition of Success
I recently asked for views on the definition of success in our personal lives from subscribers to “The Dreamer’s Guide” Motivation newsletter. These are some of the responses that I received:
it’s about setting a mission and on its completion do you succeed.
Make that high goal, have an achievement strategy, attain that vision and you will hear them tell you: “you have really succeeded!”
Success can also be about developing oneself into a person who is valuable to others. However this will lead to making money because people will pay for value the same way with a skilful person at his job will usually command whatever pay they wish.
Faith in oneself is another huge and important part of success. You must believe that you deserve and you have the ability to succeed.
While it’s very difficult to define success as you have put it, it may mean different things to different individuals. In my own understanding I would define success as "the achievement of ones desires such as goals, missions dreams and so on"
it is for this very reason that I’m a working so hard and smart so that I will be able to find my self in a situation to help someone... it might be with money, it might be emotionally, or whatever possible way that I can.
Because I know that one day I will have something to show for it when God asks me what I have done with my life.
I believe what Martin Luther King jr. said "life's most important question is what are you doing for others?'You can never do something nice for someone else without you yourself feeling good.
Every night before I go to sleep I ask my self this question and the answer will determine whether my day was successful.
Thanks to everyone above for sharing on the definition of success from your perspectives. I am certain lots of people will find them useful.
I would be happy to include your comments on the definition of success to the website so others can learn from you too.
