What Is Success Really About?

Is success really about you? Or is it about your actions? Or is it about your words? Or is it about your thoughts? Or is it about how you treat other people? Or is it about how you treat yourself? What does it really mean to you? For the purpose of this note, success is not about you. It is more than you. It is about how you live your life. It is about how you treat other people, especially the little guys, the vulnerable ones, the homeless ones, the poor ones. It is about knowing what you want in your life and going for it. It is about doing what you want to do to change your life. It is about taking positive actions that will change the lives of other people. That is what success is all about. Success is not about what you have; it is about what you give to change the lives of other people. Success is not about you; it is about other people. Because no one succeeds alone. Whatever you have, you didn’t do it alone. If you want to succeed, help other people succeed. Keep doing good things. Keep changing the world. Respect yourself. Treat people with respect. Don’t try to make everybody happy. It won’t work. That is not success. Success is making yourself happy. Success is thinking positively about yourself, your work, your relationships. Because if you don’t like yourself, don’t expect other people to like you. You are your message. You are your own messager. If you want people to help you tomorrow, be nice to them today. Because your tomorrow is happening right now, right where you are. Don’t ignore it. Live it.

Do Not Try To Do Everything

Life is not about trying to do everything perfectly. It is about doing something really well. No one expects you to be good at everything. But the world expects you to be really good at something. Permit me to ask you, my friend. What is it that you are really good at? What is that one thing that keeps you up at night? What is that one thing that you never stop talking about? What is it? That thing is your purpose in your life. No matter what it is, you have the power to do it, so just do it. Don’t fear anything. Fear will always be there. Just learn how to play with your fears. Don’t let them stop you. Take action. Play with your fears. Always prepare before you start. Don’t just jump into what you don’t know. Always ask questions. Ask people who have done it before. Don’t let your pride stay in your way. And do not try to be perfect. Because it doesn’t exist. No matter what you are trying to accomplish, always do your best. Work really hard to create your own future. Because the future you are chasing is right in front of you. Do not miss it. Remember that everything is possible. Believe in yourself. You are responsible for your success and failure. You are. Yes, you are.
