Is Success Important?

suc·cess

favorable or desired outcome; the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence.

There was a time when I thought success was measured by popularity and material things. I assumed that if I didn’t have those two things then I wasn’t successful. I did not realize that popularity and material ‘trinkets’ are considered superficial success. Someone can be popular but not respected. You can have many possessions but be morally destitute. I lived a life full of things and void of fulfillment.

So now that we know what success is NOT, let us dig into what is considered success.

Goals- If you have goals and work constantly and consistently to achieve them…SUCCESS!

Values- If you set values for yourself and uphold them…SUCCESS!

Vision-If you can see what life is like in the future and create passion for it in the present…SUCCESS

These are just a few examples of what I think success is.

How do you define SUCCESS?
