Success: what does it mean? What are the requirements?
Many say that success is the absence of failure. But what is failure?
I believe that success lies in going after something with the goal of achieving, not always achieving, yet still getting back up on your feet and trying again. I am successful because I have failed and continued on anyway. I am successful because, despite defeat, I am steadfast in my beliefs, and the thoughts and feelings I entertain are intentionally in line with my beliefs in order to create my vision.
A vision is the secret ingredient to successful people's plaques, trophies, awards, or personal achievements and satisfactions. It is their drive, their motivation, their purpose. As a mentor of mine would say: with a mission and vision, you can change the world.
In the many facets of life, I have failed and succeeded.
What does success mean to YOU? What's your reason for living beyond yourself?
