What does success mean? Success is what everyone aims to achieve. Every man or woman defines success their own way.
For some it is attaining the number one position in class/ profession but then for how long can a human or a company hold on to the first position. Does it mean the day they lose the number one position it can be equated to having failed (Having failed to achieve their own laid down goal).
For some success is getting an admission or a job. Does the success story end the day the job or the admission is obtained, or does it start from there? Most of them end up implementing someone else’s ideas and have no ownership of their time and emotions. They lose their originality also somewhere in the journey.
There are others for whom success lies in being able to sustain amidst adversity. For them life is what happens between two struggles.
The long and short of it is that a large majority relate success to achieving a goal. They are constantly in pursuit of a goal and do not realise when life slipped past.
For me success is simply having ownership of one’s own mind and time. The day an individual starts using the mind and time as per own need he or she is successful. It is not easy to achieve but not impossible and certainly worth going for.
