Success. Such a small word for something that holds so many different meanings.
For some success means earning a large amount of money and owning property and luxury items. Others believe that success means finding and enjoying a career you love regardless of the paycheck. Still, for others, success means helping as many people as possible and inspiring those around them to do the same.
We could spend days discussing success, what it is and how it can be achieved but in the end, the definition of success will always come down to one’s values and goals in their life. Success doesn’t happen overnight and one has to work their way up to achieve it.
What success means to you will vary. A large part of success is wishing success on others because success for one person does not necessarily mean success for the next. And if success leads to happiness, then it’s up to us to decide what success means and how we wish success on those around us so that together everyone can strive towards their goals and be happy along their journey.
You could say success is the pursuit of happiness, while some would argue success comes after happiness has been found.
Your success is the success of those around you, your failure is their failure. Sometimes success is measured in dollars and cents, other times success can only be viewed by helping others succeed too; success in all meanings is achieved when we’re happy with ourselves and understand what it takes to get there.
