Such a sweet word for most of us, and yet we feel it’s so hard to get a taste it. But why? Why do we believe that only a few “lucky” people find this sought after gem?
In order to find an answer to that question, we must first ask us this:
What is success?
I don’t believe that success is far as unachievable as many others might think. I think success, and what it is, is very individual, and the only person who can decide whether or not someone is successful, is the person in question. Why? Because success is probably something very different to me than it is to you.
To me, success doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve got an amazing career with a high-paying job, or that you’re well-known by people in your industry or people in general (althought this can also make someone successful, of course).
To me, success only means that a person is working hard (it has absolutely nothing to do with luck, as some might think) to get to a place he/she wants to be, and then reaches that place; success is doing something you want to do, something you love; success is being good at it, and having fun with it. Money or fame or the amount of people working for you, don’t really have anything to do with it.
If you ask me, that is.
But now I’d like to ask you:
What is success to you?
Let me know in the comments! 🙂
