Every person is different. Everyone thinks differently. Their struggles are different. No one can understand and match another as every individual is different.
Likewise, the way to look at life is different for everyone. You can see the world as I see, and I can't see the world as you see it. What I mean to say is that even the struggle, battle, and exams are not the same for everyone, then how can the success be the same for everybody. Isn't it?
If two personas are preparing for an exam, day, MPSC or UPSC, which are some of the toughest exams in India, their success in the exam is entirely dependent on how they prepare themselves.
They both are very good at studies, but their strategy will make them successful. The one who studies with the right system will get access soon, whereas others may take some time. It's all about their struggle and design; they looked with. The result will be a success for both of them.
On the other hand, two people who are not so good in their study, and hardly manage to get the passing marks, the result showing them pass their success.
All I want to say is the success is not the same for everyone. It will always be different for all. It also depends on how the person looks at their success.
For one, getting a passing mark can be their success, where for others, reaching 99% will be their success. One may feel successful-looking their family happy, while others may think that buying a villa and a Car will succeed. It all depends on the personality. But, indeed, success existed in everyone's life.
The one, who can't imagine their success, can't get successful. This is a perfect topic to discuss. And today's topic is going to be so attractive for you to identify your success. So, please don't leave the page, and be with it till last.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. Winston Churchill
Success definition as per dictionary or book
For sure, success's definition is not the same for everyone. It varies; it will go. Here I'm talking about the real-life experiences and the meaning of success according to the real experiences of people. As, anyway, it is most important.
Let's try to find out what books have an opinion on the success definition.
Like the individual personality, you will find the different definitions for success in various books. You will find the meaning of success like;
The satisfactory ending of attempts.
The fulfillment of someone's goals.
The success in relationship, honor, wealth, position, financial condition, etc.
The truth of achieving something that you were struggling for and looking to complete it as your goal.
The true sense of getting famous or socially recognized.
The definition of success will always vary with its measurement in wealth, career, love, etc.
Every book and dictionary will define success in different ways. Moreover, I would suggest, even if you read the success definition in any of the books, only you are the one who can define success for yourself as no book can help you to find your purpose.
Success is the sum of small efforts - repeated day in and day out. Robert Collier
What is success?
As of now, I have tried to understand what success means. But, do you know what success indicates?
SUCCESS refers, Students, Utilising Cooperative Community and Engagement Skills Successfully.
Isn't it amazing? The word itself says a lot of things in it. Success can be defined as the result of determination and hard work to achieve something called a goal.
You can never achieve success until you understand the power within yourself. Everyone is unique, and they can achieve everything they wish. But, it is only possible when they realize their capabilities.
Ralph Waldo Emerson Says, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Though every two people will have other opinions on success definition, in the end, they would agree to struggle for health, happiness, being fulfilled, loved, and cared for.
You get success when you realize your potential. Yet, here you are half done. I have seen many people doubting themselves. Just because, for the moment, they do not understand what they are learning, they don't find the program suitable for them. Maybe the same program helps them to get their goal.
Success is not challenging to achieve. But the route is. And, the one who keeps walking on the path continuously can only activate the goal.
Getting afraid of the path or the obstacles that may come to your journey is not the solution. But, facing them is the step you need to take ahead.
Make the ladder of those challenges and go up and up. Then only success will be visible. You can't see the surface of the moon being on the earth. You will have to fly to the moon. Whose journey is not easy. But, trust me, when you place your feet on the moon (which you can never do), you get the feeling of success.
If you think only the toppers can get success, and you can not, as you have too many flaws, you should know, the successful people were never the toppers. They were losers, dropouts, who best their fear fought with them, and as a result, they got success.
Success doesn't have any relation to luck. If you are not getting the win and blaming the chance, you have a void in your hard work. And that's why you are not getting hit.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Albert Schweitzer
The new definition of success
How can you understand the meaning of success from a different perspective? Well, it is not challenging. Every field indeed has its own definition for success. And when you know how to know success, what success is, it becomes easy for you to look over your success. Please go through some stories I'm sharing here with you. Use them as a reference for you and try to understand the meaning of success.
Success story 1
Amey didn't have any interest in studies. He never looked at them seriously, and he always manages to get promoted to the next class only. Instead, it was also challenging for him to get to the next level. When he was in 12th class, his father passed away in an accident. And, now, he was the only person who is supposed to take care of his mother and a younger sister.
Initially, he went into depression due to this sudden change. One day, his class teacher noticed all these things about him and talked to him. Amey's teacher makes him realize that the way to support his family is good education. Amey was an impoverished student. But, when he understood the importance of education, he decides to clear his HSC with the top scores so that he can get into the top college for further instruction.
He works so hard. He works on his weaknesses. He makes a schedule of his stories, keeps consistency in his work. And he gets the highest marks in his college.
The Morel: It's never too late for anything. Once you realize your potential, success is not far away from you. However, it was a small achievement Amey has listed.
Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. Edward Everett Hale

After some time, it was so tiresome for him to continue his mining. And, he left the work. After some days, another man came to know about the incident. And he decides to keep the mining continue from where the first man leaves the work. As soon as he started, in two three days, he gets the diamond.

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome. Booker T. Washington
Success story 3
Once, a man was coming to an elephant camp. He notices that all the elements were tied with a single rope, and it was tied in a leg only. Every elephant had the same situation. He got confused, so he goes to one of the trainers there.
He asks the trainer, "why the elephants are not breaking the rope and trying to get free. When they easily can do it. They have enough of the strength to do this." The trainer replies to the man, "when the elephants were small, the rope was enough to hold them. The elephants are tied with the same rope from their childhood to adulthood. But, today also, the elephants think that they can't break the tope, and thus they don't try to do this."
The Morel: In the story, the elephants have made their opinions that they can't get through the situation when they easily can do it. They are stuck ad their past condition and don't even try to deal with the states with the new attitude. The same thing applies to the human. If they have made any past mistakes, they think they should not repeat the situation without pain and failure.
Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally. David Frost
Success story 4
Once, there was a seminar in an auditorium. The host asked people, "how many of you are moved on with your past?" Very few hands were raised. Then to change the environment, he cracks the joke, and everyone started laughing.
Then, the guy cracks the same joke for the second time. This time, very few people laugh. Then, he again cracks the joke. This time, no one laughed. Then, he explains that if you can laugh at the same trick, why do you complain and stuck with your past? Going back in the past and again and thinking about the past can't be the solution for any of the problems; it will not assist you with anything, anyway.
The Morel: People in this world are so happy and comfortable with their past. They keep complaining about the same and don't want to see the present and the future. Instead, they should learn to deal with the situation and start looking at every moment in a new way.
There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen. Jim Lovell
Success story 5
A long time ago, a man was living at $99 social insurance bills, at the age of 65, in a small house. Even at the age of 65s, he wanted to do something to change his life. He was thinking about what he should do so that he can change his life. And, he had an idea. He thought of the selling fried chicken recipe that his family and friends loved.
With the thought, he leaves his home and visits various restaurants to sell his recipe. But he fails. He gets around 1009 Nos. He was also ready to give it for free, but no one agreed. In the last when he visited 1010 restaurants, he spawns a Yes.
His name is Colonel Hartland Sanders. And, the rest of the history, you know.
The Moral: This story gives you too many lessons. First is, it's never too late for a start. In the society of younger strength, Colonel Sanders has set an example; age is just a number. The second is belief in yourself. Have confidence in yourself. The third is consistency: one story, many lessons.
Success isn't measured by money or power or social rank. Success is measured by your discipline and inner peace. Mike Ditka
Success story 6
Once, there was a king. One day, he thought of experimenting on these people. So, he put a massive rock in the middle of the road, and hide nearby to see, what people do seeing the stone on the road.
After waiting for some time, he sees some wealthy merchants passing by. They walk by the rock, blaming the king that is not doing his duties. Then after some time, a peasant goes by the same way. He had some heavy stuff over his head. Seeing the rock in the middle of the road, he stopped and tried to move the rock sideways.
It takes some time for him to clear the road, but he does it and goes back to his work. The next day, the same thing happens, but this time, there was a change. He saw a sag filled with gold coins with a letter saying, "It is the reward for your work you did yesterday." It was the king who placed the sag for his work.
The Morel: Don't complain about things. Take action to make a change. You have the strength to challenge situations that look tough. So, go ahead, and challenge the challenging situation. Also, karma comes back. So, if your karma is good, you will get a good reward and vice versa.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds. Orison Swett Marden
Success story 7
Once, A mommy camel and her newborn were turning in, soaking up the sun. The baby camel asked his mum, “Why are we with these large bumps on our back?”
The mammy thinks for some time and then said, “We are living in the desert where there is a shortage of water. Our humps reserve water to support us survive on long trips." The baby camel again questions, “Well, what is the use of these long legs with rounded feet?”
His mum answered back, “They are signified to enable us to walk through the sand.” The baby asked the third question, “Why are my eyelashes so long?”The mother answered, “Your long eyelashes you from sand when it hits in the wind.”
In the last, the baby asked, “if we all have the skills naturally to live our life, then what is the use of the Camels in Zoo?"
The Moral: It shows that your abilities won't have meaning until you use them. You might have heard about the persons, who have left their jobs to follow their dreams. Now, you have to decide, you either want to do your job only, or to live your dream. Maybe your plan gives you a struggle initially. But, it would help if you had the confidence that you will make a change. Think big, keep growing.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure. Mark Twain
Success story 8
Once, in a small village, there was a businessman who was having huge debts. And, he was not in the condition to return all his obligations to the bank. Moreover, the banker was an old and unappealing man who firmly wanted to marry that businessman's daughter.
One day, the business owner went to the banker and wanted to have a deal so that he doesn't have to pay the debts. Banker puts a condition of marrying his daughter. But, business owners didn't want to do that. But, he didn't have any choice to be debt-free as the debts were too huge to return.
In the banker days, he will put two stones in a bag, black and white. If the girl chooses the white stone blindly, the businessman's debts will be cleared, and the daughter will not have to marry him. And if she selected the black stone, she will have to marry him, and the debts will be cleared.
The banker walks over the path full of pabbles and picks up two black stones. The daughter was watching the banker from the window.
Then the banker called the girl to select the stone from the bag. The girl puts her hands in the bag, takes a stone out of it, and falls it on the ground full of pabbles. She says, "oh, I'm sorry, I'm a little clumsy. Please look at the bag, and see what stone is left over. Which will help us to see which one I selected."
The banker doesn't want to get catches for his cheating. So, he has to make now the businessman's debts accessible without marrying the girl.
The Moral: Often, the situation may come when you have to think out of the box. At such times, you don't have to afraid to question, challenge yourself, and think differently. Such situations may be challenging. But, you need to be strong and trust in yourself.
While you may have to think outside of the box sometimes, it’s always possible to conquer a difficult situation. You don’t have to always give in to the options you’re presented with. Challenge the status quo. Think creatively. Engage in constructive nonconformity when possible. Don’t be afraid to question the things that are expected to be true. To overcome challenges, you have to think in ways that you’ve never thought of before.
A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. David Brinkley
Success story 9
Once, a leader in a seminar hall shows the audience of 200 people a $50 pouch. Then he asked them, " who wants this pouch?" And everyone raises their hand in the air.
He said, "I will give this money to any one of you. But before that.....he asked one again, who wants the pouch?" And again, everyone agreed.
Then he tried to make as much money as possible as it hardly looks like wasted tissue paper. And, he again asked the audience whether they want it or not. And, everyone again agreed to have it.
The Morel: No matter how challenging your life is, how challenging the situation is, your life and the worth of your life don't decrease. Often you might face the case where you feel inadequate but remember your worth. And be proud of it. As if you value yourself, the world will love you.
You don't have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream. Michael Dell
Success story 10
Once a boy asks an old man, "what is the secret of success?" The man told the boy that to meet him on the riverside the following day.
The boy gets ready and goes to the riverside the following day to meet the older man. The man and the boy started walking through the river till the boy's nose ducked in the water.
Now, the older man punches the boy's head inside the water and doesn't let him come up. The boy struggles a lot to come out, but the man pushes him in the opposite direction. The boy feels that a fish is swimming underneath his leg, and he tried to come up hard.
Now, the man pulls the boy and makes his breathing. And, asked him, "when you were inside the water, what did you want?" The boy replied, "The Air." Yeah, this is the secret of success.
Until and unless you want success, like wanting air, you can not achieve it.
The Morel: The desires give birth to Success. If you want to be in the pot, just because you can, you won't be able to get success. On the other hand, if you desire success as essential as the air, you will definitely go to get it.
The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way. Robert Kiyosaki
Success story 11
Two kids, a boy, and a girl, were playing on the ground afternoon. First, the boy shows the girl his collection of the pabbles, which was too beautiful. Then the girl also shows him her collection of candies.
They both make a deal of exchanging this collection. The girl gives her all the candies to the boy. Boy gives all of his pabbles to the girl. But, he keeps one of the most beautiful and big stones to him, without her knowledge. And they both were so happy.
In the night, the girl was so happy that she has got a perfect collection. And she goes to sleep thinking about the pabbles. But, on the other hand, the boy could not sleep, as he thinks, if the girl has also put some candies on her, as he did.
The Morel: What you give, that you take. Whatever the relationship is, trust is essential. If one is cheating, he will always think that the other person is also cheating him. As you believe, you grow up. So, think positive. Be honest. It is the ultimate secret to your success.
Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek. Mario Andretti
Success story 12
A man used to walk his dog every day in the morning. Every week he was noticing a woman nearby a lake. Week after week passed by. And then he finally goes to the women asked, " would you mind if I ask, what do you do here every week?"
The woman had a cage beside her, three turtles on her lap, and the fourth one in her hand; she was wiping with a sponge.
She smiled and replied, "I'm cleaning the argue and scum that grows upon the turtle's shell as it would reduce their ability to soak heat and reduce their swimming capacity. It so can get corrode and got weaken with time. I do it every weekend."
The man smiles and says, "But do you think you are making a huge difference? As there are not so many people in the world who do this. And the other turtles may be living with the algae and scums."
The women replied, "if these turtles were talking, they would say, I'm making a huge difference."
The Morel: You may not change the world, but you can change someone's life. You may not matter for the world, but it might be the world for someone. Only because you can't change the world doesn't mean you shouldn't try to help people. You might never know; your small help can make a huge difference in someone's life.
Success is sweet and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats. Amos Bronson Alcott
Success story 13
Once, there was a king who was so helpful. He has a person in his kingdom who was so clever. And the king used to admire the person the most.
One day, the king and the person goes the riverside. They were talking and discussing some severe topic.
Meanwhile, the king draws a line on the coast of the river and asked the man to reduce the length of the line without touching it or wiping it. After thinking for some time, the man draws an extensive line aside from the last line and tells the king that his line is shorter.
The King gets pleased with the man again.
The Morel: Try to look for the options around you. If you keep yourself closed in a box, don't let yourself breathe in the air, you won't be able to survive. Put yourself in extreme conditions to know your capabilities. Make your mind living. Think out of the box.
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success. Swami Vivekananda
Success story 14

The man then says, "see; you could break the single sticks but couldn't break the bunch of them. In life also, you will be easy to be broken, but if you are united, no one could break you."
The boys their mistakes and promise their father to stay united.
The Morel: You may not be the one who is the only important person on the team, but you can be the one without whom your team is incomplete. Everyone has different strengths, weaknesses, capabilities. In a group, your efforts may not benefit you individually. But, it will make a difference for your team.
Success consists of getting up just one more time than you fall. Oliver Goldsmith
Success story 15
In a classroom, a professor asks a student to come forward. When he comes out, the professor asks him to put his hands on a level outside his body alignment. When he does it, he puts two books in his hands. And ask the student if it is heavy or not. The student says it's very light.
After 5 minutes, the professor again asked the student if it is heavy or not. The student again replied the same. Then, the professor gets busy interacting with the class. After 15 minutes, the professor repeats the same question. This time, the student replied, he is feeling muscle pain. Then the professor asked him to go back to his seat.
The professor explains that if the boy had held the book for 1 hour, he might feel keeping the heaviest thing. But, if he holds the book for a day or the week, his hand may feel paralyzed and numb.
Similarly, the book refers to the stress and worries in your life. If you hold them for few minutes, that's ok. Buy, if you have them for much time, it will give you pain, mentally and physically. It will help if you let go of them as soon as possible. Otherwise, they will paralyze your brain.
The Morel: If you can't hold your happiness for longer, why do you carry your stress everywhere you go. It will give you nothing but sadness and more anxiety. Let go of your tension. Don't carry them everywhere. Free up your mind so that they can have a space for new ideas.
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. Bruce Lee
Success story 16
Once, there was a Carpenter who was nearby his retirement. He goes to his boss and informs him about his retirement. The boss got sad, as the carpenter was one of the best employees he had ever.
The boss asked the carpenter to build the last house for him before his retirement. Though the man didn't want to do it, he agreed to do so. And he started working in it. He was such an experienced and knowledgeable person. But, as it was his last house, who doesn't take too much effort, uses average interiors, and so on.
When it gets ready, he gives the key of the house to the boss, and the boss provides access to the carpenter's return, saying, " it is the gift for you from my side."
The carpenter thinks that if the world has known that it is for him, he would have taken the double efforts and gave a quality product.
The Morel: We often save our energy for the next day, which we don't know, what and how it will be. This story teaches us to give 100% at the moment. You waste your time giving excuses and then complaining about the outcome. If you don't give your best, how can you get the best?
Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming. John Wooden
Success story 17
In a school, one camp was organized for the students. The counselor comes to the auditorium and asks students to share their experiences that have hurt them badly.
One of the students stood up and said that one of his friends says something to him that had hurt them so badly. And, they can not forget what their friend has told them.
Then the counselor puts up the chalk and breaks it into two parts. Then they ask the students whether anyone can join it back and make it like before. Everyone says no.
Then the counselor says, "like, you can not join this chalk back, and make it like before, you can not take your words back. Your words are the most powerful. So, use it wisely. It may give you an injury severe than any of the weapons."
The Morel: We can not live without talking with each other. Being in a conversation, words are the most important things that help have a good relationship and bond. Conversely, if you use the wrong words, your most robust relationship can be faded away.
Right words heal, where bad words injure you the severe. You can't take the terms back. Once you said something that could hurt the feelings of somebody, your 100 times "I'm sorry" can't make it right. Take some time to think before you utter a word. You should know what to speak and when to speak. As if you learn to speak wisely, you are successful.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try and keep trying. W. Clement Stone
Success story 18
Once, there was a man who was so intelligent. People know him and their work. And they used to appreciate him due to his works. He used to calculate and study every single thing that he was doing. Then, one day, he notices that his shoes are going to tire soon. He realized that he had worked so hard, and as a result, his shoes will be split into two parts.
He decided to buy a pair of shoes. So he thinks of going online and looking for the shoes that are best suited for him. Meanwhile, he also believes that what if he bought the wrong pair. So, he wanted to be sure before purchasing the shoes. So, he takes off all the books that he was appreciated the most. And after too much research, he finally reaches the solution that how he needs to buy shoes.
He makes all the measurements using the scales. On the next day, he went to the shop and selected a pair of shoes. But then he realized that he had forgotten the scale at home. So he goes back home, but he realized that his boots are torn. And he has to walk to the house barefoot.
On the following day, he goes to the shop barefoot. But then he comes to know that the shoes he has selected were sold out. So the confused shopkeeper asked, "why didn't you bought the shoes yesterday?"
The man replies, "I had forgotten the scale at him yesterday. And as per the books, I have to buy the shoes with the measurements of the previous shoes."
The shopkeeper laughs and says, "sir, to buy shoes, there is no need to research them. You forgot the scale at home, but you had your feet with you. You would have to try the shoes and then buy it."
The man says, "according to my research, this was the only way to buy perfect shoes."
The shopkeeper says, "sir, to buy shoes, you don't have to do any research. You only need your feet, some money, and the common sense."
The Morel: Knowing does not guarantee you to be an intelligent person. Several times, you have to take action without thinking. Then, the conditions come where you need to deal with common sense and not the knowledge you have. At the same time, don't hesitate to use your knowledge whenever you need it. It will lead you to success.
Action is the foundational key to all success. Pablo Picasso
Success story 19
There was a company, who's boss was so strict, and employees didn't like him at all. One day, when all the employees come to the office, they see a notice on the door, "the one who was holding you back died yesterday. Please gather in the seminar hall for condolences."
Reading this notice, every one of them thinks that the boss dies. They feel so sad. And everyone started moving to the auditorium. When they enter the hall, they see the boss sitting on the chair fit and refined and a coffin placed in front of him. Each one of them was shocked, who is died then.
One by one, everyone comes to the coffin and sees inside it. But, when they looked inside the coffin, everyone was shocked. As, inside the coffin, there was a mirror only where they saw their own images.
Besides the mirror, there was a letter, "The person who was holding you back is you. There is no other person in the world who can hold you back rather than you. You are the biggest speed breaker for your success. Unless and until you understand this fact, you can't get success."
The Morel: The one who is the doer is you for yourself. You can make you successful and unsuccessful at times. No one can hold you at any sort of time. Only you can keep you and release you to do something extraordinary. Don't put limits on yourself. Be limitless. You have the best relationship with you. If people are blaming you, making fun of you based on your efforts, it means you are logging at some point. So, don't blame others for their perception of you. As somewhere you have given them a reason to think like this.
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. Winston Churchill

The host says, "this is what we do in real life also. We keep aside other's happiness to look for ourselves. But we forgot that if you can't make others happy, you can be satisfied too. "
The Morel: The secret of happiness is, be helping to others. Find your joy in other's happiness. When you give a smile to other's faces, you will ultimately get a reason to smile. You don't have to run for joy when you help others. And, success can be achieved in the same way. By helping others and taking others together, you can get win only.

Success story 21
Once there was a farmer who used to sell 10 kg of butter to a shopkeeper. He has become the regular seller of the shopkeeper. One day the shopkeeper thought of measuring the butter, whether the farmer gives him the correct quantity or not. So, after buying the butter, the shopkeeper measures the butter and found that it was less than 10 kg.
The shopkeeper takes the farmer to court. The judge asks the farmer," why did you cheat the shopkeeper. Instead of giving him the correct measurement, which alias used to provide him with less quantity."
The farmer replied that he doesn't have anything to measure the quantity. He only has one measurement using that; he gives the butter to the shopkeeper.
Judge asked the farmer, "what is it?"
The farmer replied, "I purchase 10 kg of bread from the shopkeeper. And, in the same container, I put butter in it and sell it to the shopkeeper."
He continues, "if he has found the butter, less than 10 kg, he might have sold be the bread less than the right quantity."
The Morel: You might have heard that you give will come back to you for sure. I don't know in what form, but you will get it anyway. If you give respect, you wi be respected. You give grief; you will receive sadness. This story is the best example that proves; Every action has equal and opposite reactions.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. Vince Lombardi
What is your personal definition of success?
This question is fundamental, you should ask yourself. And then try to find the answer to this question.
When you answer the question, you will realize that the other's success is just a theoretical read you had.
For me, success is, achieving your goal with happiness and satisfaction. This is the correct definition of success for me.
Success refers to achieving your goal. But is that so only? Completing your at any cost, is the can success be? And, what if, even after achieving your plan, you are not happy? Would it be a true success?
I may sound stupid, but you will also agree that many people say they are successful, but they take sleeping pills to sleep.
Ultimately, success means having a lot of money so that you can live a lavish life peacefully. Almost, for everyone, success is earning money. And, I'm not saying it wrong anyway as it is their perception looking at success. But, even if you make money, but you are not happy, satisfied with your job, designation, work, location, company, and whatever it is, would you call it your success.
Of course, not. You will agree with this statement. Right? Success should be the amalgamation of sound financial status along with happiness. You keep working, working, and working all the time, and don't live your life; this success will don't have any value.
If you can't enjoy a single day, how can you say that you are successful? You devote all of your time to your work, don't spend your moments with family and friends, and won't succeed.
Your successful life should have a balance of work and personal relationships, then only you would call yourself thriving realistically.
Deciding a target, working hard to achieving it, and one day accomplishing your goal is the pre-success job. But, you also should know how to handle success. You can not overdo it. You can not ignore it. You have to maintain it.
Achievement can be challenging, but after the triumph, your efforts and responsibilities rise automatically to maintain it.
You can see the billionaires saying they work with double efforts before being successful. They are not just settled in their AC cabin, waiting for them to give them an everyday turnover file. Instead, every day, every one of them doubles their job, goes on the floor, and works with their staff.
One more thing, you should be grounded with your success. You have started your business from a small shop, and today it is a vast company, can surround many negative energies. And you should know what is good and evil. Protect yourself from the feeling of EGO. It only destroys. Be humble.
This is what I think about success. All this works for me when I want to say victory.
Success is simple. Do what's right, the right way, at the right time. Arnold H. Glasow
What is a real success in life?
Again, the point comes from what real success is. We can divide success into various categories, viz. personal success, professional success, and social success. These three successes are the foundation of real-life success.
Human is the only animal, who lives their life in this three-domain and have three lives at a time. Personal success refers to private life, including happiness, satisfaction, peace, health, wealth, etc. Professional success can be building an empire, getting a high-profile job, achieving dreams, earning money, etc. However, social success is related to human social lives. They have to give society love and respect, be kind, humble, grounded, etc.
When humans learn to balance their lives in these three areas and remember to be successful in the same areas, they can call themselves successful in a realistic manner.
Real success can be defined as accomplishing the objectives that are most important for you. Those things that are important and are goals for you will indeed be based on your journey till today, from your birth. These things will decide what your success will be like. As these things determine the goal of your life, they are needed to achieve the goal.
Life is a journey everyone goes into—the elements, events, experiences, your life easier or harder. And, as a result, you set your life goal.
Let me say, if someone is born in a lower-middle-class family, who have also faced the days where they hardly could manage their meal, their success would be getting enough money so that they don't go back to the same days.
Likewise, if someone has decided to be a doctor, engineer, an officer, their success goal would be different than that person. Whereas the person from the previous example can also have these goals, their journey to achieve them would be different.
They may need to work extra as compare to them, whose financial condition is good. But, ultimately, real success all depends and comes from real-life and real-life experiences.
Success is falling nine times and getting up ten. Jon Bon Jovi
What does success mean to you?
Success is not just a word; it is the feeling, emotion, and result of the revolutionary struggle. Go throughout history, and you will see, no one who is successful today has an incredible journey.
However, if you already had the sources to do something, you won't understand and feel the real success. Therefore, to achieve your goal and enjoy the feeling, you have to struggle.
For me, Success is my Responsibility. No matter how hard I worked, how arduous my struggle was, or what extremes I have seen, if today I'm successful in any domain, it will build my responsibilities, being on the post.
Let me say I was deemed to be a doctor from my childhood. Today, I have achieved my goal and successfully write the doctor's prefix in front of my name. But, it is my responsibility to finish here. No. I have to be more responsible now.
Being a doctor, patients will trust me for their lives. They will expect me to hey cured. So ultimately, my struggle of being at a reputed post increased, but it has given me many responsibilities that I need to justify with my work.
Remember, achieving your goal, whether personal, professional, or social, can be the first step of your plan. And, now you must maintain your success.
Success comes with an enemy. And, you have to deal with this foe. It's up to you how you do this. Well, even though it is true that you should respect the enemies too, I would suggest you kill that opponent.
I'm talking about EGO. I have seen many examples where Ego has destroyed many people. So if you welcome Ego, with your success, you can not survive longer.
Ego is a slow poison. It will not instantly harm you, but it will indeed harm you and destroy you. So, beware of this enemy and maintain a safe distance from it.
The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way. Dale Carnegie
