On Success

Success is such a subjective term. It can be defined in a million of ways and sometimes it's so easy for us to get caught up in how everyone else defines success.

But what really is success? How can one say that he or she is absolutely, definitely successful?

The answer to this question is simple but not easy. Success, in the most basic sense just means that one has reached a target goal -- whatever that may be.

So from that perspective alone, we can say that first of all, anyone who has no goal or target in mind will never reach success. Because really, how can you tell you've "arrived" when you have no destination in mind?

Success then would mean differently for every person because most of the time people have varying goals -- in degrees and specifics. So two or more people may have similar goals but since the situation and specifics vary per person, success then would mean differently to them.

So if say, my goal is to be happy -- as soon as or long as I'm happy, then I've reached success. Sounds simple? Absolutely.

It really is just that simple. Set a goal. Reach it. Declare success. Rinse. Repeat.

We have this tendency to complicate things just because it feels more reassuring when something goes through a rigorous process of analysis and justification.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

The simpler the process, the better.

So who wants to be successful? Go ahead and set that goal and execute like you mean it.

I'll see you on the other side of the success fence.

Love and light,
