Success Does Not Involve Jobs, Careers, Being Rich or Poor

Life is short. Likewise, most Millennials and parents are debating what makes themselves successful, what career makes them rich, what kind of work makes them really popular. Success is overrated.

Being successful does not involve numbers, but the time that it takes to achieve progress within the process. Likewise, success is a mere feeling and not a one size fits all definition.

You can be successful:

  • in a 9-to-5 job (if you love what you’re doing).
  • if you have risen a great family throughout the years.
  • with a current or previous relationship.
  • on the verge of how they have helped someone.

Being successful involves all kinds of ways, ways that you might have never imagined of. You can also be successful in multiple ways.

Success is Progress within Process

What people preach about is the title of being successful. What it involves is achieving progress within the process. If we can achieve progress, you are already successful, regardless of the assumed title.

Likewise, success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. Purpose includes a multitude of things. Like graduating from your dream school to as simple as passing a driver’s exam.

Being Rich does not Guarantee Success

Many think that in order to be successful, being rich is a requirement. Truth is, you can solve many problems with money. But, without the proper understanding or research of what you want to attain, the percentage of being successful fundamentally decreases.

Think about this for a moment. When is there a time rich people don’t put in work to attain that success? None.

What we should think about is the process of enjoyment. What can you do to reshape this world, to change or improve the lives of many, to leave your legacy behind without this monetary question in place.

That is the question you should be asking yourself. Drop a comment below and let me know your thoughts!
