What is success to you?
What defines a successful lifestyle?
If you started to wonder even for a split of a second about the answers to these questions, you may be having difficulties enjoying your life. I know I did. I struggled for years with the socially generated concepts of success and tried a lot of things to achieve them.
It took me some time to understand the real meaning of success. It’s difficult to understand that. Most definitions are socially generated and most of the times you need somebody else to tell you that you are a successful human being.
Being successful should be something that comes from within. Success is often defined by the number of people that have heard about you.
In today’s world, money and recognition are the most important success definitions. You might be a complete and fulfilled person, yet if you don’t have tons of money or you’re not quite a popular figure, you’re not going to be accepted as a successful person.
All because you gave in to ready made success principles, without understanding the most important part: what YOU really want. What makes YOU happy. What YOU can offer in an unique and fulfilling way…that should define YOUR success.
If those things are totally and honestly filling your existence, they will lead you to success anyway. Every thing that you do without effort is a promise of undoubtable success, this is your gift.
The real joy of life always comes from within. The real need for success always comes from you to the others, not the other way around.
Success is a state of well being, an equilibrium in motion. A personal choice. It is not a social label.
You are successful when it is not a stress anymore. When you feel right about what you’re doing and when you’re doing everything right.
