What is success? This is the type of question many people ponder, yet few have found or concluded a definitive, conscious or subconscious answer to such a potent and powerful question.
Perhaps success has many definitions or valuable meanings to different people and businesses. One may feel successful they graduated from college, university or high school. Another person may feel successful they achieved success, when they got married, or they started a family or business of their own.
Here are some potent success quotes:
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
― Winston S Churchill
“I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.” ― Herbert Bayard Swope
“Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”
― Albert Einstein
“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”
― Herman Melville
“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.”
― Truman Capote
“The worst part of success is trying to find someone who is happy for you.”
― Bette Midler
“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
― Winston S. Churchill
“A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.”
― Bob Dylan
From the above quotes of people, who have pondered and lived towards success within, we can safely conclude success has no ONE definition, image or meaning. Success is also not just about money or wealth, it is also about mind, heart, soul and spirit within. One may have achieved wealth or things successfully, but are you successfully happy, content and at peace within?
SUCCESS IS ACTION TO VISION OR GOAL
Success is action to vision or goal, for unless you achieve your vision or goal, how can one ever feel successful? Success is impossible without daily, monthly and or annual action. Success moves, aligns and only rewards people and businesses of action or execution of plan, ideas, goals or vision. Put simply, to ever feel successful or achieve success, one must action your plan, goal, dream, wants and desires from within.
SUCCESS IS 1ST WITHIN
Success does not come to anyone who has not desired, prayed, actioned or planned for success, or to be successful. Success begins within. Success is the reward of action, faith, persistence, hope, trust and belief within. We all get to choose whether we are successful or unsuccessful within and around. One may NOT know anything about success or how to become successful, but like most things if you can action, pursue, dream and vision with planning and persistence, the desire to want success or become successful, if with unwavering belief and action, you shall achieve. This is universal fact.
If Psalms is a Book of universal wisdom and Law:
He shall receive the blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Whether one is spiritual, religious or atheist, there is NO success unless, one is blessed in right doing as righteous not evil or wickedness. You may agree or disagree, as some people do believe in seeking or obtaining wealth as success, by any means necessary i.e. fraud, robbery, gangs, mobster, mafia or criminal. But is this really success or successful? This sure shines a light on the word success. Can one be successful of evil?
One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper; one whose tongue is perverse falls into trouble. – Proverbs 17:20 NIV
If Proverbs is a universal Book of wisdom and Law, it is impossible to ever reach or become successful from evil or corruption. Could this be the reason why many people even with wealth cannot find happiness, peace and ultimate success within and around?
VALUE LEADS TO SUCCESS
Success has more to do with aligning mind, soul and spirit in harmony with the Creator as his universe, than any book, course or monetary inheritance. Read the above quotes again…many of the people who wrote these quotes are of business, political or celebrity status of world. Yet all or most via quote, illustrate perhaps VALUE is better than success. Or value is the definitive road or path to success.
So what is value?
The regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something. – Oxford Dictionary
Value is anything useful, important or deemed valuable to people or commerce.
The above highlights the intrinsic and extrinsic importance and wealth value possesses. It demonstrates unless people, customers, corporations, institutions or Heaven, deems one valuable one stands little or no chance of achieving or becoming success or successful. Do you agree?
Zig Ziglar, the master of motivation, empowerment. marketing, advertising and success boldly states:
“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
This is value and success all-in-one. To reach any level of success depends on the value of your proposition, offer, skill or talent. I am motivating and speaking to myself as the world of people, trade & commerce.
FAITH LEADS TO SUCCESS
Faith also leads to success if one is more fearless than fearful. Without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please not only the Creator of this universe, without faith one can never please self. Without faith one will always feel like a failure, reflecting, if only I had tried, taken the risk or gamble. Faith is also what one hopes for, but cannot see by hope, love, action and belief within. Are you faithful to your dream, goals, desires or calling? Are you willing to pay the price regardless of the obstacles to showcase and perfect VALUE to people or customers?
In conclusion, there is more to the road and meaning of success. There is happiness, courage, faith, hope, belief, resilience vision and purpose.
