Success: That Elusive State

It looks like it’s Sassy Saturday and I didn’t write for most of the other days! I’m incredibly sorry for leaving you all hanging and I don’t have a good reason for it. All I can say is that I plan to start going by my daily themes list and providing interesting posts for you all. Today, I’m going to blog about success.

What is success? I’ve heard that it’s something that we all need to define for ourselves. Some people believe that it means they’re rolling in money at the top of their career ladder. To other people, it’s simple and undefined: a happy life, whatever that means for them. There is a new definition of success for every single person that exists and thinks about it.

By my definition of success, I have a way to go. I want to be financially independent and able to travel the world at a whim. I want a full life, with friends and loved ones. I don’t need to marry or have babies, but if that comes about, it happens and I’d like to be happy. I want my life to be meaningful and full of purpose. I want to mean something good to the world after I die, no matter how long human life lasts for.

That seems simple, doesn’t it? It isn’t.

No matter what anyone’s definition of success is, while they’re on the journey, it’s an uphill battle. Some people begin at the bottom, and others begin at the top. Personally, I think that those who begin at the bottom have more success than those who begin at the top for one reason: the road is rockier and harder to climb. There are more people involved in pulling those at the bottom forward and up, and therefore the final success is infinitely more precious than if it had simply been given or attained easily.

Now, here are my questions for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ How do you define success? How far do you need to climb before you can have the type of success you want? Is there anything about success and the journey to it that you’d like to add? Leave a comment and we’ll talk about it. Until then….
