Definition of Success
The word success is a funny thing….and what exactly is it anyway? We’re conditioned by the media and other influences around us that success equates to obtaining lots of money, owning a nice house and car, and having a position of status or power in the work you do.
I don’t know about you, but my definition of success is oh so much different…..and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone.
Think about it. For some reason the person who drives the nice car and has the cool “stuff” is deemed successful. But ask yourself what your own personal definition of success is, and I guarantee it has nothing at all to do with money. One of my favorite quotes on success comes from Bob Dylan of all people.
“A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.”
I hear you, Bob and feel exactly the same way. I may not be a success in the traditional sense of the word…….but I couldn’t be any happier with the way I’ve led my life. Beating the rat race, staying true to myself and my core values, and not letting boundaries get in my way. Oh, and my days are pretty much filled with things I want to do.
Do whatever makes you happy. Be happy Go Lucky. Be a Success. Enjoy. #MakeitHappen.
