Success has a different flavor for everyone
Definition of Success
I have heard people saying “I have a lot of money, the count of my assets gives me joy, Now I am successful!!” Does it go same for a Saint, who thinks that he is successful because he has reached the highest level of detachment from all the worldly pleasure? A man who is a writer, doesn’t live a life of leisure, sits alone and smiles when he counts the people who appreciated him for his work, a sense of being successful runs through his veins.
I have written on this subject earlier too, Success is something that we desire the most in our lives. Every passing day we count our efforts in the direction of being successful. Everybody is in a rate race of getting the tag of “Successful”. When we find the lack of something in our life than achieving that becomes our uttermost purpose, and such attainment gives us a sense of being Successful. Success is nothing but our search for happiness in those areas of life where we are lacking and want more. The sense of fulfillment in any aspect of life is a form of success.
Success is a state of mind
A passing thought says that Success is nothing but our efforts of filling the gap in our lives that might have existed since long. A person who was born with a silver lined fortune but grew up watching family fights, lack of support and love will definitely feel that money is not that which gives a peace of being successful but this is the love and affection of family which makes someone successful, he will look for love everywhere and his success will be getting such people into his life. But a kid who has a loving mother but he begs on the road to get a meal , will think that having money is about being successful rest everything follows.
One of the most important key steps to achieving success in life is to know the meaning of success for your personal life. In reality, the true meaning of success goes far beyond the common definitions such as having a lot of money, being wealthy, having a lot of tangibles and earned degrees. Quite the opposite: true success in life cannot be measured with the above-named factors, but instead with the number of people that are able to live a better and more advanced life because of what you created. This is the meaning of success. Not the trophies people are collecting in their lives. Media and society let us often conclude that living a successful life means to be extraordinarily wealthy and have a lot of tangibles. But the meaning of success is to live a happy life and to make this world a better place for everyone. The desires are never ending and so the urge of being successful, we are successful when our good deeds touch the lives of other and bring a smile to a face, not tears.
Be Successful first to meet your necessities first, Be successful to fill all the gaps in your life. But in the process of being successful, don’t be unsuccessful in making someone smile. The worst exchange in the race of being successful is compromising with your values and hurting the good ones who meet you in this journey. Stay Honest, Stay Good and Rest Will Follow……
As I always say- Do Good and Expect Good to Happen!! Life is a Blessing for Those Who Makes World a Better Place for Others.
