Success takes many different definitions. People have different interpretations of what success really means. For me is as simple as: living well and laughing often. The idea of living well is a very broad statement. Living well, in my opinion is getting success in personal, social and professional life. If I can achieve all of these three levels of success, I believe that I have lived well.
Personal success for me is being able enjoy little things that life has to offer. For instance; understanding and appreciating diversity. To have someone to love and treasure, to meet the right person, fall in love, and get marry. To feel that I’m able to love my child and pass on wisdom to him .Feeling that someone loves me, is something that makes me completely happy and ...view middle of the document...
Meaning that I have good friend where I can rely on. I know that if a need help on anything, there will always be a helping hand. A part of societal success is also to learn how to treat people well, and I have been blessed to have such a great family that has showed me how to treat people since I was a little kid.
I consider that I have reached professional success when I’m able to finish any goals that I have set in my mind. It doesn’t necessarily means that I need to have a masters or a doctored on my career. If my goal this year, is to graduate on April 2010, and I’m capable of doing it just the way I set it in my mind, then I have reached professional success, even if it is only my Associates in Art (AA). In the long run, it always good to be as much knowledgeable as we can, but if my decision is just to finish my first goal, I consider it to be as success as if I keep having more goals to achieve.
If I laugh often, then I definitely have achieved success as well. When I laugh, I bring out good thoughts, good aura, and joy to the people next to me. If I don’t have a reason to laugh, it usually means that there are many worries near me. It could also be that I’m mad at something or someone. If I’m mad, many bad thoughts could cross my mind, even if is not my intention to hurt anyone. It is just that I have madness inside of me, and of course I don’t think clear so bad things could happen. I try to laugh a lot, and that is very hard to achieve today’s days, so definition of success for me is clearly when I had laughed often.
For some, success is measured by social status and wealth; for others, including myself, success is determined by the amount of happiness one feels. Living well and laughing often is my closest definition of success.
