Success - What It Is, What It Isn't, And Why You Want It!

 


Visitors: 241

Ok Mr. Unsuccessful, what's your problem, Lost a Job, your wife, your kids, your car, your home, your dog? Well what is it? Truth is so many of us value success solely by it's defined meaning but not by it's intrinsic value. Success is often tied to the attainment of wealth. Well I will tell you this, that guy who just won the state lottery is pretty loaded, but I dare call him lucky before I call him successful.

But now you lost it all! Does that make you not successful? Honestly? sure does, not because you lost everything, but because you are marinating yourself in that loss. It is human nature to ponder our failures, we think about them too much, we segment our memories to parts of our lives where we were successful and compare them to our life's lowest. This is not a trait of successful individuals.

Successful individuals know that success is a mindset. It is not what you do, but who you are and what you think. Thomas Edison allegedly once said “I have not failed 1,000 times. I have successfully discovered 1,000 ways to NOT make a light bulb. " So the idea is that even if you try and fail, doesn't mean you didn't learn something, actually failing gives us a better lesson than success. Simply put failure shows us how not to fail again, while success is simply the product of constant failure. You can't have one without the other can you ?

So how do you become successful? Adopt the mindset, that failure is an option and an accepted option. As long as you are progressive to attaining a specific goal en route to success, and never become idle like that old clunker you got in your garage, you my friend are going places.

Success is what you are, what you say, what you think, it's that swagger in your step, it's that confidence sitting on your left shoulder, it's you realizing that whenever you want you can tackle life head strong. You take on a persona “selective confidence" rather. You are as capable as I am, as the next man is. Want to be a better husband, better wife, son, daughter, student, or anything for that matter simply tie in that swagger with conviction. Say it to yourself, as many times as you need to, remember what you think, is what you say and what you say, will manifest itself.

Success comes to only those that try, those that believe, those that want, and those who never deviate from themselves. This means everyone of us, this means you, me, and the next person who reads this article.
