Are You Successful?
Success is not the same for everyone.
If you don’t know what your version of success looks like, you will never know when you get there!
What are you waiting for? Much like the decision to have children, there will never be a perfect time to quit your crappy job and go and find the one you want. That day will never come.
Great post. I think success is about being happy in whatever you're doing, as well as if you've reached whatever your goal is. The only thing is making sure you move that goal as relevant rather than clinging on to someone else's goal.<br /><br />I want to earn enough money to be able to do what I want to do without money worries, make sure N grows up to be a nice person, and have
I think happiness *is* success though, isn't it? <br />What I mean is - success is subjective, and dependent on what you see as successful. <br />For me, "success" means that I can still spend time with my daughter as well as earning a living. I think we all have success on our agenda, but in different forms. Some people are tied to the perceived image of success, others not so much
Very inspiring - you're absolutely right, success has not the same meaning for everyone. I do think too much emphasis is put on success as "material things and a bulging bank account" these days. To me, that's superficial success, not something that can give you happiness. Real success is about being a happy human being - even though that sounds rather simple :)
Your post is ON POINT! That day will never come to do what you want to do, what you are passionate about or to take that step you know will change your life- Like Richard Branson says, "Screw it, Let's Do It!". You've just helped me to make up my mind about a decision that I needed to make but was "waiting for the right time".
So true. Sadly, many people never manage to work out what would make them happy, what success would look like to them. Me? I'm a writer. I sell a few of my novels now and then. I'm happy, therefore I'm successful. Christine Campbell recently posted...The Case for Kindle
I love this post! I hate when people think the paycheck or the job title determines the success. I was miserable working for other people. I made my husband miserable as well. When I quit and opened my own business I immediately felt happier. And the kicker came when I started earning more on my own than when I worked for "the man."
