What is the definition of success. The definition of success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. So, that being said, can we truly measure someones success? If every person has a different idea of success, why has society shaped our minds to think that you are only successful if you are rich or famous? Therefore, I ask you. What is your definition of success?
We are the creators of our own success. Luckily, we live in a day and age where change is encouraged and embraced. So, why haven’t we changed our views on encouraging people to chase their own success? When I was younger, I dreamed of one day being famous. That being said, I’m not an amazing singer, and I don’t have any extraordinary talents. But, I still was convinced that if I could make it big one day, then and only then, would I be living a fulfilled life. Nevertheless, time passed and I began to realize that I didn’t care if I was rich or famous. I cared about the well-being of others and leaving my own mark on the world. Once I realized what my morals were, what made me feel fulfilled and what fed my soul, everything I once thought about being successful shifted.
Everyone has their own perception of true success. Individual success is immeasurable. Why? Well, every person has their own set of values, morals and goals. It’s time we as a society start recognizing the importance of immeasurable individual success. So with that, I challenge you. Take a minute and think about what success means to you.
