How are you defining SUCCESS?

November 9, 2008 6:18pm CST
Whenever I present seminars on this topic, I ask for definitions of success. Most of the time I get the usual answers: "money", "positions", "influence", "climbing the ladder", "the one who has the most toys wins". Usually I can group the definitions into five basic areas: power, prosperity, position, prestige, and pleasure. What about power? Is power the secret to success? What about prosperity? Materialism is a major problem today. Yet possessing things and having money aren't wrong. What about position? Some people say that position defines success. But do they succedd? What about prestige? Being known and recognized? What about pleasure? "The rule of life is to make business a pleasure and pleasure our only business"

Success to me is like the bulls eye of a dartboard. Success is like the peak of Mount Everest. Success is our heaven here on earth. The dream we have for ourselves is the fuel that keeps us going. What's important for me is the process of bringing success to my life. Success is just the bonus. The things that you'll learn in between is what matters. Even if you fail, at least you're sure of the fact that you've tried to grip the bonus with the very best of your ability.

Hi frnds, Every person should be a positive attitude will be their in life. never wait till tomorrow success which you can do today only. success is amatter of choice and not the chance. success is a attitude. prosperity and success are both pillars of thoughts and decision. success is a preparation and character. success is a hard work. try try until you succeed. success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal. success is recognition,good health,a good family,happiness,satisfaction and the peace of mind. success and happiness go hand in hand. success is getting what you want and happiness is wanting what you get. do more than exist-live. do more than touch-feel. do more than look-observe. do more than read-absorb. do more than hear-listen. do more than listen-understand. Failure are steping stone to success. If you really want to succeed,form the habbit of doing things that failures don't like to do. every person wants to success but success is not easy we have do more hardwork and the pratice to be succeed.
