According to Dictionary.com "success" can be defined as:
1. the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavours.
2. the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.
3. a successful performance or achievement.
4. a person or thing that is successful.
I put it to you that every single human being on this planet thirsts for "success". Also what can be guaranteed is that, just as the dictionary did not have one single definition of success, the definition of success is different for every one of those humans on this planet. "Success" to me would be different to "success" for you.
Quite often you will notice that someone who is spectacularly successful in one area of endeavour will also be experiencing total disaster in another. Famous actors or popular music stars come readily to mind. Very wealthy and very successful in their career, idolised by millions, but their personal lives are disaster areas.
The trick, obviously, is to be successful in as many areas of your life as you can and circumstances allow. My personal definition of success is the attainment of a state of joy in my life. To be happy and satisfied.
Where to find it? Look in all the small places first. Start with the little things - and the big things will follow naturally. Make your life chock full of all the things that ring your bell. All the things that thrill you. All the things that you look forward to. All the things you just love to do. What puts the smile on your dial? If you need to, be prepared to change some things that aren't working for you - that may be a job you hate, or even a place you don't like living. The effort will be worth it! It comes down to this - What price do you personally place on "success" and your personal definition of it. Are you prepared to be a price payer.
Just a warning here. Make sure that in your forward motion to attain your definition of success you are not trampling all over someone else in the process - for that would definitely be a false success. Check you attitude to your fellow humans. You share this world with others. True success never impinges on the rights of others, rather, it lifts everyone to new heights, just as the tide lifts all boats in a harbor.
Success for you may be attaining the status of "millionaire", or it could be the feeling of happiness in helping someone with a task they are unable to perform for themselves. Whatever it is - go for it - give yourself permission to find success - whatever it means to you. Put no limits on what you can achieve. It's all there waiting for...........YOU!
A quote for you: "Success is not so much what we have as it is what we are." - Jim Rohn
