What is success?
Many people ask this question.
I took to Wikipedia to answer this and here is what I came up with thanks to Wikipedia:
- Achievement of a goal
- Opposite of failure
- Attainment of higher social status
We are going to focus on the first two because I believe the last one is garbage because that is all relative and in the eye of the beholder.
Achievement of a goal
This one is pretty easy. You set a goal and you achieve it. It does not matter how small or how big the goal is if you achieve it then you have achieved success. Successful people set goals and then they go out of their way to achieve them. Thats pretty plain and simple. Goal setting is very very important to achievement. Start small and then work your way up to some really big ones. Don’t make them all so huge that you are never going to reach them. You need to build confidence along the way to make some small goals and work your way up.
Opposite of failure
When you fail then that is not success plain and simple. So even sometimes when you don’t accomplish something you can have success if you leaned something and discovered a new way of doing things. Just remember you can find success in many different things you just have to know how and where to look. Many great discoveries and accomplishments were done and discover by accidents and mistakes. So sometimes you have to be careful what you might consider to be a mistake or failure.
I could ramble on and on here but in the end you have to give yourself some credit sometimes. You do know how to achieve success. You have to believe in yourself and be able to find success in mistakes because you next great success could be hidden in a mistake or failure somewhere.
Keep your head and and keep pushing forward.
