What is SUCCESS?

I was pondering on the word SUCCESS and discovered that it’s the driving force behind all of human endeavor. Little wonder, everywhere you go, people strive to attain success. A lot more go the extra mile-good or bad to achieve that level of success they crave and yearn for. What then is SUCCESS?

Success means different things to different people, but the binding factor is the fact that success tends to be the driving force upon which every achievement rests. To some people, success means making more money, starting a new business, expanding a business outfit, getting one’s dream job, to be promoted, to get married to one’s best friend, to have children, to graduate from college, the list is unending…

The common feature of success is the fact that it brings about satisfaction, contentment and fulfillment. These are feelings within the human nature that emanates from the inside. No one has been able to explain this feeling, but you will get to know it once a success level is attained. Success deposits a kind of feeling within the human nature that gives you some sort of peace, calmness and reasons to want to enjoy life.

It is important for you to know that success is said to have been attained when a specific goal is achieved. With this understanding, you know by now that without a goal, success cannot be attained. In essence, success is directly proportionate to achieving a goal. Let’s say, your goal is to earn a monthly income of 250k by the end of 2017. Achieving this goal is SUCCESS to you. In order to get to this level of success, you know that you will have to put in a lot of effort, strategies, etc. that leads to the attainment of your goal. This leaves us with another fundamental fact about success, which is this, SUCCESS is a deliberate act. Safe to say, success does not just happen, rather, it takes deliberate and dedicated effort to make success a reality.

You cannot achieve success without having a goal, even when you have one, you will need to be intentional about the way you will achieve it. Success is not luck and it does not happen by chance either. You will have to work it out to make it happen.

Having established this fact therefore, I can confidently tell you right now that your success in any endeavor is determined by you. No one holds the key to your SUCCESS other than you.
