SUCCESS – What is it?
In this article I’ll discuss about Success. I’ll discuss few simple things / rules with those success can be easily achieved. Few simple points to live life successfully.
In last month I wrote two articles on key ingredients for success – Consistency and Focus. But these are not only the two. There are more but before touching those I thought why not to first start with Success. What is Success? And then I’ll continue again on key ingredients of success formulas.
Warren Buffett – Success is whether the people close to you are happy and love you.
This is my favorite topic. Because everybody in this word needs success. Everybody in this world working for success in one and another form and basically living for it.
So let’s start with what is Success? This is very big question. You will find lots of articles / videos / books and so on for this topic. Answer for this question is different for everybody. We must understand what SUCCESS is for us. SUCCEESS definition for every individual in this world is unique.
Success meaning from OXFORD dictionary? – The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.
This is very good definition actually if we study it carefully. Its achievement of our goal, aim, our purpose and only ours not others.
At the same time it’s also important to understand what Success is not? Success is not competing with each other. Success is not one time. Its continuous process throughout the life. It’s not how wealthy we are. It’s not how many likes/replies/comments we are getting on social media. Setting our own goals for us and continuously trying for those unless those are not accomplished. Irrespective of failures we are getting, our only job is keep trying unless we didn’t get what we want. We need to be consistent and focused.
Chin-Ning Chu – A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one’s own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.
There is no specific formula for Success. But I strongly believe there are certain factors / rules which decides whether we are / we will be successful or not.
Following are the few key ingredients of Success formula, I believe this list will be always growing: Couple of from following list I already discussed in my previous articles and rest will discuss in upcoming articles.
- Passion / Enthusiasm
- Mental Fitness
- Physical Fitness
Never compete with anybody. Any individual in this world can compete with only one person – SELF. Only compete with yourself. Observe where we are yesterday and where we are today. If there is no change in your yesterday and today or in upcoming days then need to rethink. We must improve our life on daily basis, we must learn new things on daily basis. Where we want to go tomorrow.
Bill Gates – It is also nice to feel like you made a difference — inventing something or raising kids or helping people in need.
Expectation: Never expect anything from anybody except from SELF. Expectation from other always leads unhappiness, frustration, distract us from our goals.
Health Checkup – Every 3 months of yourself and your family. Nowadays those are very cheap. Be active, be fit. Daily do some sort of exercise which we enjoy. Fitness is very important part in achieving our goals. Which not only saves our money and time but also keep us active and make us more energetic, allow to us concentrate on our goals.
LIFE is very beautiful. Live for our DREAMS / GOALS. We have tremendous power within us. Let’s face all the problem in our success path and have courage to defeat them.
Deepak Chopra – Continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals
Nobody can make difference in our life except ourselves. Because nowadays everybody while communicating with us thinks from their perspective, according to their situations. Be positive all the time irrespective of who said what.
Let’s make our collection of motivational songs / videos / movies / articles / books. Have those friends / relatives to whom after discussing we feel good. Go through those whenever we are distracting from our goals. Whenever we fill demotivated. Whenever we fill sad. Remember we always need to continuously progress, move ahead irrespective of what happens with us, we fails or any sad thing/incident happens with us. Look for positive and move ahead.
Stephen Covey – If you carefully consider what you want to be said of you in the funeral experience
