Success May Be Closer Than You Think


Most of us strive for something... a bigger paycheck, a bigger house, a better job or simply a better lifestyle. But in the mist of our journey it's easy to forget what we are really trying to accomplish. It comes down to our definition of success.

How do you define success? Is it a new Porsche in the driveway? Maybe it's having a large bank account?

Success is not measured by what we have or can buy.

Regardless of what the world views as a "successful" person, success is meaningless if you never reach contentment.

Ask yourself these four questions:

1) What do I want to be?
2) What do I want to do?
3) What do I want to have?
4) Why do I want it?

  1. Success is measured by contentment, by how much positive effect you have on the world. Money certainly can be a part of that, but it won’t be the prime determinant in whether you are successful or not.

    How much eternal impact you have is a broad but very good measure of your success.

  2. I agree Jason. When we learn to live with very little then we can truly see the freedom in it. Freedom from debt, maintenance, no time, etc. It’s not easy but definitely a goal to strive for.
