I believe definitions for success are somehow endless; try asking your friends and people you know how they define success and you will rarely find similarities in their answers. People seek success through richness, love, power and you will find as many as answers as you keep asking more people about success in their lives. Though success is somehow relative to people likes and believes.
Having that stated and we are now relaxed from being questioned; let me share with you one definition for success that everyone can accept and agree upon:
Success is the continuous journey toward the achievement of predetermined, worthwhile goals.
Continuous journey! Isn’t success is a point where someone can arrive at and it is done? Well, in this Life, this doesn’t exist. There is no place called success that anyone can reach and be happy there forever. What would you do for the rest of life if you made success during any stage of your life?
Predetermined shows that a choice was made, a course was set. A plan to commit yourself to.
Worthwhile is a key since you and I as mankind and the majority of people in the world want to do something worth with their lives.
Consider using this definition for yourself and lay a course for an exciting journey toward success!
I am sure most of you will like this definition pretty much. And now what about thinking of success:
Success is small baby steps towards a bigger thing, hopefully bigger than you are !!
What does this mean? And what do you mean by hopefully? Is there a chance that I may not achieve my goals?
Yes. What is more important than reaching your goals – that you planned for very well – is that you “keep yourself on the road”.
نحن لا نملك نتائج أفعالنا و أعمالنا في هذه الحياة، وهذا لسبب بسيط إننا لا نملك الحكمة الكافية لمعرفة توجيه النتائج من الخير إلى الشر. وليس معنى أن نسير على الصراط المستقيم هو إننا لن ننحرف عنه ولكنه قمة الكمال الذي حدده الله للإنسان و هو الرجوع المتواصل إلى الصراط بعد اللإنحراف
And that’s what will always make you feel successful (and definitely happy) since your goals will keep changing every now and then, but you will always be comfortable you are on the right road.
Remember happiness has to do with two things: Challenges that you can overcome and good relationships. So keep these two always on your road!
