So What is Success Where You Are Concerned In Today’s World?
Well I’ll inform you what it’s not.
Even believed a lot of us like to regularly visit our own individual Fantasyland total with its mansions, servants, expensive cars and trucks and trips to exotic places (check under the heading of “What I Would Do if I Won the Lottery”) most of us over the age of twelve with any experience under our belts are sensible sufficient to recognize our Fantasyland for what it is.
A fun location to go to however one sorely lacking in individual fulfillment.
There are many in our society who have actually purchased into the principle that relates “success” with huge money. And you can’t really blame them.
Our entertainment industry and the media have actually intensely promoted this concept. “Join us now as we take a closer look at the lifestyles of the abundant and well-known!” “Travel in glamorous style in our Really Expensive Vehicle!” “Are you prepared to be a Success? I made a million dollars in 2015 and you can do the same!” “Dress for Success with this Really Expensive Suit from the Really Expensive Store!”
OK, all you with a huge checking account and a pile of possessions can just unwind and take a deep breath.
I personally feel than anybody who has actually worked tough and has actually earned their money honestly is deserving of at least a pat on the back.
Yes, money can be an indicator of– or a result of– success. It ain’t “success”.
What is success anyhow? Here’s old Gene’s personal opinion.
Success is simply taking the actions to do the important things you wish to do. And it doesn’t matter what those “things” are. It can be just being the very best mommy or dad possible. Or being the very best teacher or secretary or tree-trimmer or banjo player or pet dog groomer or volunteer that you can perhaps be.
And no, you do not need to be much better than anyone else at what you like to do. Just working to be the best you can be– at whatever interests you – immediately qualifies you as a big SUCCESS!
Do not squander the time and energy attempting to compare yourself– that unique, special “you”– to anyone else. Do not drive yourself bonkers attempting to live up to what you may see as another person’s success. If you’ll set this image in your head and work for it, you can instantly consider yourself to be “successful”.
There are lots of in our society who have actually bought into the principle that relates “success” with big money. “Dress for Success with this Really Expensive Suit from the Really Expensive Store!”
What is success anyway? Success is just taking the actions to do the things you desire to do. Just working to be the best you can be– at whatever interests you – immediately certifies you as a big SUCCESS!
