Everybody wants to be a successful person, to have a successful business, to be successful on all levels. But do we actually know and understand what is “success”? According to the dictionary, success is “the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted.

You may often wonder how long does it take to achieve success, but the most important question one may ask himself is “how to achieve success”. The meaning of success differs from person to person, everybody understands and wants something of it or has the perfect idea of what success is all about. Some may think success is all about having lots of money and/or power, or having a lot os spare time, being good at a sport/hobby or just being popular. I think this is the basic idea that people have in mind when it comes to success.

After a while, success may become and mean something else, such as love, friendship, family, health. It really depends on you and what YOU think is important for you at that moment. You just have to think about it. Simply put: Success is knowing and accomplishing things that are important to you. (Freelance Folder)

Let’s take a look to what success means to different important people:

“Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
