Success is always associated with ones ability’s and thus I believe it is something personal which differs from one individual to another. When we tend to talk about success we realize that there are plenty of unanswered questions.
“Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.”
I tried to find the meaning of success in a dictionary. It read ‘Accomplishment, fulfillment of one’s dream or aim’, after a moment’s thought I understood that the question is by no means an easy one to answer. Each and every one of us has his/her rendezvous with destiny. A successful person is one who makes this rendezvous triumphant by laying a firm foundation with the bricks that others pelt on him. You may have everything but still not be happy or satisfied. Success provides us with an opportunity to be recognized and talked about around the globe. We always tend to associate success with the choices we make in our life. We pray to god for miracles to happen for us to be successful. The irony is we pray for so much to happen that we have forgotten to define miracles. A daily wage worker who earns not more than Rs.100 a day finds food to feed himself and his family, that’s a miracle. A teenager who says no to drugs and alcohol and yes to education, that’s a miracle. We expect things to fall in place and ultimately achieve success. What we don’t realize is that we have the power in our hands to change and improve our life.
“Success is not measured by what a man accomplishes, but by the opposition he has encountered and the courage with which he has maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds”. Life does not depend upon love and intensity shown by us for achieving our dream.
We have always associated success with one self that we seem to be oblivious to the things happening around us. Have we ever wondered how we could have made another persons life trouble-free by helping them or uttering few caring and warm hearted words in our life? Only we correlate success with benevolence and compassion will we show signs of achieving it.
Decision-making is and will always be an exigent business. Our task becomes easier when we agree upon the fact that we are imperfect and we cannot change the inevitable. If we want to taste success, the easiest way is to take charge of our minds. It is believed that the only thing we can do is play on the one string we have and that is our attitude. Let us take control of that string and redefine success together.
