The Principle of Success

What is success?

I am not going to try to define success. I think a precise definition is impossible. Is it winning a Gold Medal at the Olympic Games or winning Wimbledon, or being awarded a Nobel Prize? What else? I believe personal success could be anything at all—it does not have to involve public recognition. Who is more successful? A millionaire who is unhappy, or an unnoticed person who has led a simple, happy life? The simplest definition of success I think is“to set out to do something and to succeed in doing it”. It really doesn't matter what, or how humble the undertaking is.

Believe you can succeed and you will. Achieving success in whatever endeavor you choose may be the goal of life. Because it gives you freedom from worry. Could that be?

Success means different things to every one of us. Some people believe it is measured in financial terms, i.e. having wealth; others believe it is helping others rather than helping themselves. A bit of both perhaps! Or it could be simply achieving for achievement's sake. Success is such a personal thing. To many people it is the very root of their being—the reason for existing is to achieve something worthwhile in our lives. To the vast majority of the population it doesn't matter much whether they want to be successful or not; that's OK by me, as long as that is what you really want and you are happy with life. However, most people want and are motivated to a great extent by public recognition and a relentless pursuit of achievement. How many people are really happy? How many people are really doing what they want to with their lives? (Incidentally, the ability to imagine makes us different from animals.)

No matter what motivates you personally, whatever you choose to do with your life, don't expect instant success. The years of struggle, commitment and learning in excelling at whatever endeavor or trade you choose, is no easy task. I would wholeheartedly agree with that statement. It takes a lot of courage, character and discipline to achieve success in any field. Nearly all successful people have doubted themselves at some point and wanted to give up. Yet they carried on. So many people give up within an inch or two away from the gold in the seam down the mine—a whisker away from success. One thing is for sure: success breeds success, as it gathers a momentum of its own and you get on an inning streak when everything seems to fit into place.

I like all of the following quotations. They all stand for what success means to me personally. So I'll share them with you.

“Success is the continuous journey towards the achievement of predetermined worthwhile goals.” “To live your life in your own way. To reach the goals you' ve set for yourself. To be the person you want to be—that is success.”
