The definition of success…

Success is something we all want, something we all seek, and something that some of us work extra hard to get!

What is success? For most people, it would mean achieving some sort of goal that they have set for themselves. Achieving a goal is hard work. You have to put in the extra hours and be determined! But with every little bit of success comes a whole lot of envy, right? Of course!

Be the change you wish to see in the world

 Okay, maybe not a whole lot, but definitely some. Instead of being happy for you for what you have accomplished, certain people will try to bring you down. In those circumstances, it’s important to have a strong backbone. Just remember that there are many people who appreciate what you have done and who are proud of you for working hard and for getting what you deserve.

To me, success would be measured by the good that you do and the legacy you leave behind. If you have had a positive impact on someone’s life, then you have succeeded. Whether it was just for that one day, or forever, you have made a difference in someone’s life.

No one can change the world in one go – we don’t hold that kind of power. Instead, the best way to change the world is to start with yourself. In the process of changing your own life, you could just change another person’s life for the better.
