For me it's been finding the balance between striving and satisfaction.
Success, in my opinion, is the result of knowing when to keep striving and when to say, "Hey! This is what I was after."
We can't all be champion athletes, moguls of the business world, famous entertainers, or great lovers; but we can all set reasonable goals, given our circumstances, and set out to reach those goals. Once we do we need to reassess what we've achieve before deciding whether to sit back or raise our ambition a little.
A successful life, for me, is one in which there's a wonderful relationship and a lot of laughter.
If I can borrow a quote from the Bible, Paul said, "I have learned, whatsoever condition I am in, therewith to be content."
You need to be determined to have a successful life, Life is not determined for you. You want a successful life, then you must try your hardest at what you wish to accomplish. For most, life is not predetermined or set out for you on a golden platter, were all you have to do is follow in your predecessors footsteps. It's like this, You want a drink from the fridge, get up off the couch and grab one. You want to be rich, then think of ways to become rich and follow them to you reach your goal. You want success, you need to find ways to get it and try try try!! :) Hope I helped a bit
Success for me is very personal, meaning I don't apply my definition to anyone else. Each person must decide what is success for them. For me, success is gaining such a perfect understanding of my relationship to God and the Universe that I become one with them. I work on my understanding through prayer, earnest striving to be calmer, more patient, more loving, and understanding of others. For me, the pathway to this "oneness", goes through learning how to be kinder, gentler, more patient with others, and less destructive of myself. I want to make the world a better place. I want to heal the broken hearts, give some light to those who feel they live in darkness, and love those who see themselves as unloveable. To get better at these things is my success.
I think that a successful life can mean very different things for different people. For me it lies in having learned from both the good and bad, forgiving myself for the bad and trying to make amends whenever possible. Choosing to be happy and content with the choices I make, and making sure those choices don't harm others if that can be avoided. Realizing that there is no such thing as a constant state of happiness. Above all being a good partner , daughter , sister , friend , and caretaker of animals.
We all have the potential to be as successful as we choose. Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It's not our parents, our relationships, the economy, or our age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. I don't want my children to follow in my footsteps, I want them to take the path next to me and go farther than I ever dreamed possible, as long as it's their choice.
being succesful depends on what your goals are....so being successful is when you can say i am happy in life...so yes a hobo can be successful....buissness success is a different thing that depends on how high on the rank you are and what money you make per year..
