How Do You Define Success?
Many people define success as having money, power and happiness in life. Of course, if I have money and power, I would be happy, right! Materialistic piece of damn ass! Yes, only materialistic people would think that! And I am not materialistic! I am the goody two shoes spiritual being, living a human experience angel.
Sadly, no matter how hard I refused to admit the fact, it is very true. Like many people, I view success base on how much money and power one has. I know it is super shallow, but how can I call myself successful when I do not have the money and power.
Sure, I am happy, but without money and power, how happy can I be, or how long can I be happy?
"Show Me The Money"
I have been challenged many times “Show me the money”, when I “preach” about how happy I am. I doubt myself due to the lack of money and power. I feel embarrassed and I feel like a failure many times. Sometimes, I manage to cover that with self-comfort on how blessed and happy I am…
And today, this question just kept popping up my mind …..so, HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?
I googled and discovered an article in Business Insider on how people whom we traditionally see as successful do not view money and power as the main matrix to measure their success.
Happiness Is Success!
Billionaire Richard Branson, who owned Virgin Air, rated happiness as true success.
Shark Tank Billionaire investor Mark Cuban defines simple happiness like waking up with a smile, knowing it’s going to be a great day as success.
Billionaire investor William Buffet measures success based on how people who he is closed to are happy and love him.
Acclaimed author Maya Angelou shared that “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”
As I am starting to take note of my evolvement, the one I am starting to resonate most is Hick’s definition of success. Success is all about how aligned you are with your own vibration. When you are aligned with your vibration, you will be happy and successful as you see your manifestation of what you want unfolds before you.
