Success is another key word. And like each of the concepts already discussed on Happiness, Wealth, and Discipline, it has multiple layers of meaning.
Success is also an elusive notion, a paradox. After all, it is both a journey and a destination, isn’t it?
It’s the steady, measured progress toward a goal and the achievement of a goal.
Success is both an accomplishment and a wisdom that comes to those who understand the potential power of life.
It’s an awareness of value and the cultivation of worthwhile values through discipline.
It’s both material and spiritual, practical and mystical.
Success is a process of turning away from something in order to turn toward something better — from lethargy to exercise, from candy to fruit, from spending to investing.
Success is responding to an invitation to change, to grow, to develop, and to become — an invitation to move up to a better place in order to gain a better vantage point.
But most of all, success is making your life what you want it to be. Considering all the possibilities, considering all the examples of others whose lives you admire, what do you want from your life? That is the big question!
Remember, success is not a set of standards from our culture but rather a collection of personal values clearly defined and ultimately achieved.
~ Jim Rohn
SUCCESS – Dr Myles Monroe
Here Dr Myles deem SUSSESS has been misunderstood and he took his time to share his perspectives on what SUSSESS mean. Study his and compare his perspectives with Mr Jim Rohn above and share your perspectives on the comment section.
He started out by saying that the greatest enemy of success is the fear of failure.
Some people are afraid to pursue the success because they believe they might fail and so they don’t try to do something new.
Secondly, success is the potential destiny of all created things. Every seed has a tree in it and the potential success of that tree is in that seed; and that’s the way you are. Whatever you were born to do and be is in you now and the success of your life depends on you becoming all that is trapped inside of you
The third thing about success that is important is to define it.
What is success? Success is the completion and the fulfillment of the original intent or purpose for your existence, or why you were created.
In other word success is not making a lot of money,
- Success is not having a big house with a car by a lake.
- Success is not having a lot of friends and a lot of accolades and a lot of plaques on the wall.
- Success is really very simple it’s you discovering your purpose and then completing it before you die.
In other words success must be measured by why you were created.
Success is therefore purpose fulfilled.
Success is not measured by what you’ve done compared to what others have done this is very important to note because sometimes we compete with other people and because we do better than them we think we are successful.
Success is not outbidding or outclassing other people. You can always find somebody less than you, so you think you are successful.
Therefore, success should not be measured by what you’ve done compared to what others have done.
HOW DO YOU MEASURE SUCCESS?
Success is measured by what you’ve done compared to what you should and could have done – again success is measured by what you’ve done compared to what you should and could have done.
In other words the only person who knows how successful you are is you and God.
I remember one day when I came in from school as a junior high student. I’d came first in my class, like I got the highest grade, and when i got home I showed my grace to my mother and my mother looked at the grade and she says: “you came first in the class, you beat everybody else?” Yes, I sure beat everybody else, I said, aren’t you happy I came first and she looked at my grades and she said: “I’m disappointed in you”, I said why she said “you came first with 69 – you ain’t smart, the others are just dumb”. In other words I was measuring my success against other people, she says: “you can do better than this”, In other words she would teaching me a lesson that success is not measured by how you compare with other people but by how you compare which you are capable of doing yourself; as a matter of fact, when you read in the Bible, it says that the race in God’s plan is not to the Swift, you don’t come first because you are ahead the race; it is those who are in door to end, they finish what they started that succeeds.
Purpose therefore is the key to success. Yes, what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. When you look back at the failures of this year, you know some things didn’t go right, you know something she didn’t accomplish, some of you failed in doing some things you really wanted to do, your goals were not fulfilled and you can look back and be depressed. But looking behind you doesn’t help you for the future and looking ahead of you can really make you afraid because you look at the uncertainty of whether you will succeed.
I come to tell you that what’s important is what is within you now, and God has placed in you everything you need to become all you were born to be and you are carrying it right now; and therefore the Word of God said it so well.
It says unto Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above beyond all you can ever acts or think according to the power that’s working, not in heaven, but He has placed the power inside of you and that means that whatever you were going to do and become is on the inside of you – very important to understand that there’re some things God want done in you and that’s why you shouldn’t just go about making plans without spending time with God. Because you are not smart enough to figure out your future, and God knows your future long before you were created, and therefore He wants you to know his purpose so your plans could be in keeping with it.
What a tragedy to be successful in the wrong things; it’s like a bird trapped in an egg, if that bird never flies that bird is a failure, it never made it to flight and that is what success is.
Success is not just existing, success is making it to the end of why you were born
