Views on Success in Life
I recently asked for views on the true meaning of success in life from subscribers to “The Dreamer’s Guide” Motivation newsletter. These are some of the responses that I received:
Success, for me, is the satisfaction I get from doing something. It is that feeling of elation that you get when your hard work is rendered substantial fruition. I measure success by the satisfaction I get from one thing. The satisfaction does not give me 100% contentment.
I could be everything in this life but complacent. When I get no satisfaction out of what I am doing, I change the approach towards it. If that fails, you critically analyse, taking everything into consideration, and make your decision.
The financial aspect of measuring success is so very much enchanting. Truth is nobody hates the financial security; Money abates half the problems man faces. Nowadays, success is the connotation of handsome bank accounts, ravishing cars, exquisite houses. We cannot marginalise the importance of one's financial status in measuring success. Not that it overrides all other aspects of life; it might just be the most important for my personal interest.
There are other aspects of life that need to be considered when analysing success. I should state that the financial aspect has for a long time now been used as the only means of measuring success. I know quite a number of wealthy men holding coveted positions and commanding great respect with crumbled marriages.
Personally, I have measured success by the splendid results I have attained all way through my educational life. They are not perfect, but they are hard-earned and remarkably astounding. This is so simply because I had no financial or emotional concerns of my own to take care of.
Know what? I would have met true success that fateful day I buy my Hammer or Jaguar.
Moses coming to your question, I think if one has to be called successful, they have to have a good financial base. The so called successful people of this world are measured by their wealth. For example, for someone to say they have a peace of mind they are able to pay bills or they are debt free, and able to save. Such people who save are able to invest hence grow wealth and end up to be called successful.
Finally but not least success in my personal opinion is when a person has a healthy relation with God and what follows are basically the fruits of that relation. These range physical, intellectual, financial, spiritual accomplishments. the list is endless but The core of the these accomplishments usually mushrooms the relationship. Thank you for taking time to consider my opinion.
I am sure the answers above give us some insight into the true meaning of success in life. Thanks Suwilanji, Naomi, Muuka, Deborah and Muzunga for sharing your thoughts on the true meaning of success in life.
