Like so many of you readers, I want something. I want to be successful.
What is success anyway?
“Success” seems to be paired up a lot with “money” these days. Money is important, yes, but it should not rule your life.The more I experience life, and the more I grow, I realize that success does not mean the same thing for everyone. I believe life is so much more than the “8 Steps to Success” we seem to fall prey to: go to school, get a degree, have a career, climb up the company ladder, get married, buy a house, have a family, retire with a lot of money. Success is more than your title, whether or not you have a college degree, or how much money you make.
When a person does not have a lot of money, but they have a lot of love to give, that person, in my eyes, is successful. When a husband loves his wife as Christ loves the church, he in my eyes, is successful. When a person goes out of their way to do something nice for someone else, regardless of their circumstances, that person, in my eyes, is successful. Success has a lot of meanings whether it be finding your passion, helping others, making a creative project a reality, or learning to stop and experience life rather than simply going through the motions.
Success has different meanings for everyone.
Oh, and that money we all go bonkers for?
It’s just a tool.
