What is successful for one person may not necessarily be defined as success to another person.
We can all agree that the majority of people class being rich as being successful.
Soo.. what are the common myths?
Success means life will be perfect
When you reach your goals, getting promoted at work or starting your own business, or even just reaching the salary you wanted, this does not ensure happiness, is this success? We have to keep in mind that work is only a part of our life so we cannot expect to get the perfect life with just one piece of the puzzle. Appearances can be deceiving, Do not be fooled, Focus on things you like too.
Hard work equals success
No it does not. Yes hard work is very crucial if you want to get anywhere in life, but it does not ensure success. Some people get lucky, they just are at the right place at the right time. This does not happen to everyone, some people work all their lives to get to the same place as someone who didn’t.
You get the drift success is not based solely on hard work, Continue to work hard but do keep that in mind.
It looks the same for everyone
To some people success is working Full time, for others success might be doing what they love and using the rest of the time to travel or be with family or partners.
The mistake that some of us make is that we measure our own success by other people’s standards, for example your friend may be a lawyer and earning a lot of so you feel you need to go down a similar path to feel accepted.
Everyone’s idea of success is different, so do what makes you happy. Life is too short to try and impress other people. success can be many things big or small.
In conclusion there is no one answer to what success is. My opinion of what success is would be happiness and feeling content in every aspect of my life. What is your definition of success? Use your own definition.
