What is Success?
1. The accomplishment of an aim or purpose
“the president had some success in restoring confidence”
synonyms: favorable outcome, successfulness, favorable result,
successful outcome, positive result, victory, triumph
the good or bad outcome of an undertaking
“the good or ill success of their maritime enterprises”
For this article I’ll use the first explanation, the first definition.
Aim or Purpose
Aim or purpose is rather subjective.
What is a success for one might be a failure for another.
Recently, I spoke with a young lady about what her purpose in life would be.
Her reply was to be the perfect housewife, with the house all tidy and clean,
kids clean and bathed when hubby would come home.
Personally that wouldn’t be my ultimate goal in life, but for her it is and
I appreciate that at least she knows what it is she wants from life.
Each individual has his/her own aim or purpose and it is utterly useless to judge it.
Yours is the only one you should be concerned about, at least get it clear,
know what your purpose is!
Aiming for money
All too often we’ll see people aiming to hit a target money wise, like
making $10k per month.
Once that number is reached, they still don’t feel quite happy, so the
number is increased.
It is a sad given fact, that aiming for money and reaching that goal
will not bring the happiness of succeeding into your life.
We all know people who seem to have it all, yet are heavily depressed.
Nice partner, beautiful house, making big money, perfect kids,
still heavily depressed.
Money will not give you fulfillment, living your purpose will.
That varies for each individual. Some will have a purpose to have a
stable with horses, others to have their own foundation to help a
specific group of people. Again others have a purpose to teach.
It is something you will have to find within yourself, deep down.
It is something you can only find if you are willing to ignore other
I’ve found my purpose through a life altering course that is given
only twice per year. You can find some more information on that
on this website, just look under MasterKey Experience in the navigation bar.
No right or wrong
There is no right or wrong. Your purpose is your purpose and you don’t
need any approval from anyone to live it.
As long as it is authentic and truly what you want from life, you will
find happiness living it, you will consider yourself successful once living it.
Give More, Get More
Whatever it is you want from life, you will have to become aware of it first,
then start giving it to others. It is one of the universal laws we need to
give in order to receive. Those who get that and apply it are rewarded in abundance.
