Hang on your Own
Success. Why is it that when most people speak about success they associate it with financial and social prowess? Almost anyone that offers advice on how to be successful will preface their spiel with a story about how they created a business that's worth million of dollars. At this point I realize that they are not interested in helping anyone be successful, but rather they are interested in helping others reach success as they view it. Nothing wrong with that , after all the intentions are good right? Just so happens that in the western world, success and money seem to go hand and hand. " Learn success from the worlds richest business leaders" how about " learn success form the worlds most caring people" - you think the latter title would attract attention? Success is a personal matter and can be expanded to many aspects of life. Ultimately your view of success will be closely tied to your priorities in life. Family , money , attention , charity, - are just a few areas that can be priorities for people. Some can be weighed more heavily for people than others , some can not even be of any priority at all. The point being is, take the time to determine your priorities and don't let anyone impose their definition of success on you.
