What is success?
We can all think of something we could improve about our life. We all have dreams. Whether those dreams are realistic and attainable depends on a number of factors. Sure, some people may have it easier than others; better looks, better luck, a wealthier family, etc. We’re not talking about factors we can’t control. We’re talking about the simple guiding principles for achieving success, which are easily stated.
It starts by defining success. If you can’t state what success means to you then the chances of achieving it are remote. What is it that you want to have in life? What do you like doing that gives you a sense of satisfaction and pride? What do you want to be? What makes you happy or gives you a sense of purpose?
Life is made up of many dynamics. You have your own personal health and sense of well-being; you have a family, maybe a spouse and children, maybe even grandchildren; you have the people you work with and other groups you may belong to; there’s the state of mankind, the economy, whether we are at war or at peace; the condition of the planet and our more immediate environment; there’s possibly a spiritual side to your life, religious beliefs.
All of these dynamics may play a role in the definition of success for you. Your optimal lifestyle will typically involve balancing the benefit to all of these dynamics to achieve the greatest overall good.
Defining what success means to you, formulating a basic purpose for your life or envisioning your ideal lifestyle are all pretty much the same thing. The more clearly you can define it the better.
People often get too trapped in the day to day stresses of life or work to see beyond what their immediately stuck in. You need to make the time to formulate a better future. To improve your condition you first need to understand what condition you’re really in. You have to be able to step away from it and take an exterior view of what’s going on in your life.
