There are many ways that people would describe success throughout their lives, from having the most power or money to just being alive and breathing. It's all how you perceive yourself.
Success can be measured by people differently. I personally think success is just how you perceive yourself. Does success equal more power or money, does it mean having more things in your life or knowing more people that say you are important to them. I feel as though success is whatever you make it out to be. Success can simply be the idea that you are alive and able to share your experiences and thoughts with the people that surround you. Success could be doing something new that you never thought you could do. Success could be standing in front of a group of people and telling your story and not feel as though the entire group is judging you. Success is whatever you make it out to be.
My personal success story started last year, I started attending church at King's Park International Church and started seeing my life completely differently. I have gone through a difficult past but over the last 6 months I have overcame my fears and doubts. The fact that I was finally able to realize that I deserved more in my life was a huge success story all in itself, which if you'd like to hear the whole story just ask. I was finally able to realize that I was able to obtain my dreams and aspirations and that simply going after what I thought was important in my life and would make me happy would write my own success story.
I think the best thing to do when thinking about success is writing down what will truly make you happy, don't ever compare yourself to your friends and where they are in their walks in life, just simply look at what you want to accomplish in your life and then set yourself goals that you want to accomplish and go after them.
Another thing to consider as you start reaching these goals is when is it enough. To many people when they start becoming successful, they start to make it a mission to get more. As you writing down your goals and aspirations also write down what it would take for you to feel completely successful, and what you are going to do when you reach that mark. You need to realize that life is more than just being successful.
Take a moment to think about what would make you successful and how you are going to go about reaching that success.
