Never Settle for Failure

Everyone has an idea of what SUCCESS means to them. We have a societal norm of “success” which usually is attained by affluent means. We have a definition of success that our families tend to determine for us, and we have an definition of success that we define for ourselves. What is YOUR definition? If you personally define success by what someone else tells you it is, you will have a really hard time finding happiness in your endeavor.  However, if you take the time to ask yourself, “What makes me happy?” You will have a much greater chance of feeling like you have arrived at your personal level of success. This does not translate to, “I think, therefore I am.” This DOES translate to figuring out your personal goals, laying out a timeline or plan for how you will get there, and chipping away (milestone by milestone) at each achievement along the way. Each person’s journey, path to get there and reason for wanting the desired result – is completely different.  Be happy in who you are and what you stand for. Define your own success and don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. If being successful is a destination, then give yourself attainable goals and celebrate when you achieve them. Success is not impossible, but you may need to alter your personal definition. Happy planning!
