Most people associate success with fat pay checks, luxury cars,huge mansions and signature clothes. But there are a few who says success is not just about material things. it's doing what you love, regardless of the pay. what do you think real success is?
This is a great question. I used to make decent money at my old day job, but I was miserable. Money only gets you so much, and it doesn't matter how fancy your car is when you just aren't happy.
I make less money now being self-employed, but I'm in a much better place emotionally. Enjoying what I do is more important to me than making bank.
Every year I lower my standards. These days my definition of success is just having food and shelter.
Success is doing what you love and being able to make a living at it.
Success (physically) is being able to do what you love without risking your safety or financial standing. Mentally or emotionally it is feeling like you've made a difference in someones life while enjoying what you do. Or so I've come to believe.
Happiness, the feeling that I have made a difference/helped someone or something in someway and staying true to myself and my beliefs
I was recently asked what my greatest success is. I said then and would still say today that it is my family. That we enjoy one another's company, love each other and support each other. I can have the worst day of my life professionally, but I still get to come home to a place full of love. Better, they are only concerned that may day get better from the time I get home onwards.
I believe that in life there is but one success . .and that is to be able to spend your day in your own way
For me success is that moment when I punch the air or smile to myself in joy or treat myself with the good things in life
Happiness. Going to bed every night feeling secure, getting up every morning looking forward to the day instead of dreading what it might hold, and not regretting missing out on anything. Being satisfied with what you have, never obsessing over what you don't have, and being the kind of person who takes time to appreciate family, friends, and the world around you.
Success is achieving what you really want. What I really want is detachment from things and persons and being contented thereby.
My personal definition of sucess is what I feel I have made of my life. I have my own business doing something I enjoy, I've raised two beautiful daughters, I have many good friends, I've survived cancer, and I live my life on my own terms and not by anybody else's definition of sucess. I never worry if anyone else approves or disapproves of the things I do as long as they feel right for me.
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
My personal best description of success
Success for me is being happy with what we are doing. It doesn't matter how material or monetary value we've acquired, as long we enjoy doing it. It is able to do what you wanted to do in life.
correct grizelda, money can't buy you success.
Success to me personally is maintaining good health,(physical,mental & spiritual)- not being in-debt, enjoying something in each and everyday, establishing a good love relationship that may help you grow as a person,being happy in your work,and keeping a moderate amount of everything that is necessary to fulfill a safe existence.
