ᴡʜᴀᴛ ɪꜱ ꜱᴜᴄᴄᴇꜱꜱ?, AND IS SUCCESS REALLY ACHIEVABLE?
The big question right? I took a class (which were mainly consisting of youth), on a very interesting topic on business few months back, i was happy as much as i was humbled to know that young people were so interested in advancing.
But the looks on their faces changed when the talk about success began, a class that seemed to be interactive broke into silence when i asked the question...

They all fixed their eyes on me like my question was rhetorical, i could tell they were finding a clue on my face, seconds rolled by i got my hand pointing at each one of them so as to get them talking. it was mind thrilling how each of them defined success. Their whole response was not same. It made me realised that the whole concept could be seen in various ways based on what an individual see as priority, value or success.

I know you would like to know what i see as success, Success to me is set by the mark made on others, some visualise it as impart.
ᴀɴᴅ ᴡʜᴀᴛꜱ ᴛʜᴀᴛ?
I believe each and every one person found on the earth surface was created with a purpose knowing our individual purpose is one step to becoming successful and fulfilling that purpose is a full package of success.
Is success really achievable?
The more i have given thoughts to the concept of success i realized it proposes a different thing to all of us. At one point when we meet our success, a new success begins as we keep working, striving, and wanting more. Success seemed to be far off as what one see to be success today is no more success when the morning comes.
Just like change, success may not be parmanent as goals are pursued, actualised and new goals are set and the process continues.

While some Visualise success on comfortable and huge finances, others set it by the mark they make on others (impart). Some of us define it as an ever moving goal, some will agree or disagree that it is a product of our imagination.
Success doesn't have to mean to you what it means to me and same applies to me, that's one of the beauty of living our own lives.
What are you thoughts about success? To me it had made me revaluated my life and i feel many times to adopt the word for my personal use.
Can i boldly say i am successful in one area and not in another area of my life?
Can i say my success has been and will be nothing without the ability to better other people's lives?
Whatever your take on success is, wheather personal or work, it won't be wrong to revaluate.
