What is Success?
Here is a classical definition of success: Success is the Realization of Worthwhile, Pre-determined, Personal Dreams.
Classical means timeless. This definition has been tweaked a bit here and there; however, the essence remains unchanged. Let’s look at what it means.
Realization means brought into existence; into tangible form; form that can be touched and measured.
Worthwhile means the accomplishment that gives value to somebody; it also encompasses the critical and essential benchmark of that accomplishment being moral/ethical.
Pre-determined brings in the aspect of setting up a prior goal/milestone first in your mind and then moving towards it practically. It rules out mindless activity that ends you getting somewhere and you taking credit for the same!
Personal refers to the significance of the accomplishment to yourself and eliminates you ‘accomplishing’ things that is important to only to others and not to you.
Dreams refers to operating at your your highest standards, benchmarks and/or aspirations. This entails rising to your highest possibility!
