He has assessed some of the better-known salons in the world and through his travels has acquired the defining qualities of pride in your professional and personal life.
The majority of people commit themselves daily to achieve success. My question is, what is success? Are we speaking of personal success or professional success? Are they two separate things or is that the same thing?
There is a lot of talk about what it means to be successful, or to reach a point of success. Also there are those who work so hard to reach it that there are some that even suffered to achieve success I want to be a person with success some people say but very few decide to get to work and actually work together.
Let’s stop for a second to actually think about this. What does it mean for you to be successful? Do you think success reaches only those who work hard to get it? What are they like and how do they live daily to be a successful person? I want to share my thoughts with you.
For me, success is not measured but what you do, but how capable you are enjoying what it is you have achieved. Let me explain. A person can work hard their whole life creating a great company, with a large volume of revenue and have made a lot of money, then gets to retirement age and has so much time and money to do anything but now he doesn’t have health. It’s possible that he realizes that he did not have time to enjoy his family, his free time, or to see his kids grow up. Another person, who has worked less, for a matter speaking, enjoyed every day and every moment with her family, their vacations, had time to see his kids grow up, and collected wonderful memories. This person also gets to the age of the satisfactory retirement with this life and with some money to continue till the end because he’s known how to use his savings and how to generate alternative sources of income.
Of these two definitions what do you define that a successful life? Which one do you want for yourself? Depending on the response you know which path you should take!
Devise a plan to start your journey and list the steps you need to take to achieve your goal!
