Definition of success!

I have been thinking about the definition of success lately. There are many factors to success that influence whether we achieve it and how we achieve it. What is success then, how do we define it and how do we get it? There are


many different types of success and they depend on your own personal definition. Monetary success is one of the most common ones, achievement would probably come next. I suppose is one of the most common definitions of success would be success at work, being a great friend and having things generally work out for you. But think about the factors that contribute to success. Confidence is a big one. If you are confident you tend to achieve more, taking life as it comes, rolling with the punches. When you are confident you will take more risks, be more likely to follow your dreams. Another key success factor would be integrity which boils down to your truth. Being honest with yourself and others is key to living your life with integrity. Being true to your values and being socially conscious makes your life have more meaning. What about clarity in your life. Clarity does not have to mean you know every move you are going to make ahead of time or even that your life is calm and predictable. It means rather that you have a clear vision of the direction you want to take. Your definition of success may greatly differ from everyone else’s, and that is perfectly fine, as long as you know where you want to go. Clarity is living your life, having time for the things that are important to you. Knowing what it is that is important to you and not getting caught up in the chaos of life. Many successful people have seemingly chaotic lives but if you look closely they have the factors of success working for them. They are not overwhelmed even if they have very busy and unpredictable lives. So what is the definition of success and what are the factors to success that contribute to it? well I think you need to have a clear idea of what you want out of life and living with that thought in mind. I think having a mission statement for your life would be a great start. Always giving it your best, being confident and believing in yourself. So how do you become successful? You go out there and get it.
