You are a human being and when you are born you have a huge list of dreams and goals that you want to achieve in life. You are even afraid that you won’t succeed in reaching all of them so you strive to achieve all of them.
Here is a list of all the things that you aspire to do but haven’t yet.
- You want to move to a big city in the United States.
- You want to get into a good college and have the best possible future for yourself.
- You want to become successful at what you do.
- You want to get married and have a family.
- You want to travel the world and have an amazing time.
However, the one thing you don’t want to achieve is success. Why is that?
Because the more successful you become, the more you have to put up with, the more you have to worry about, and the more stressed you feel.
And all of this stuff is a waste of your time because you will just get to the point of forgetting all of the things that you are working on when it is too late.
Success is something that you strive for because you see the amazing results and so you want to achieve them. You want to build your own empire, you want to be the boss of your own life, and you want to be independent.
But, if you want to be successful, then you have to be smart, because you can’t achieve success if you don’t have the smarts and skills to do so.
Is success the only thing we need?
This is a very selfish question because when you get to the point that you can get any of the things you want, success will seem like something that you don’t need anymore.
If you were to sit down and think about it, and calculate everything that it is going to take to be successful and achieve all of your goals, it would probably be pretty exhausting.
You will probably start working so hard that you will collapse from exhaustion, and that will only last for a short while before you start to slow down. After that, you will have to start working even harder than before, to maintain what you have achieved.
You see, you should want to achieve all of the things that you want in life, but you also should want to achieve all of the things that you can. Otherwise, you are just going to get exhausted and be disappointed when things don’t work out like you want them to.
If you only want success, then you are probably going to get a lot of that. However, you will get it in ways that aren’t as healthy for your overall wellbeing, and you won’t be able to experience the health benefits of the things that you are accomplishing either.
What’s the point of not being successful?
Being successful is not going to make you happy, so why don’t you just enjoy the things that you are doing that you like?
Many people waste their entire lives pursuing happiness when they could be doing something else that is going to make them happy. Many people give up on their dreams and goals in life because they feel that they are going to fail, or that they are not good enough, or that they are not worth it.
But, the truth is that failure is one of the best things that can happen to you.
Failure is the most honest thing that can happen to you because it helps you identify what you really want in life. It helps you find the things that you really like, and gives you a chance to go back to them when you want to achieve what you really want to achieve.
Failure makes you realize the things you are doing wrong and the things that you will have to start doing differently to achieve your goals. It helps you make changes in your life to better yourself and to help you achieve what you want to achieve.
I don’t mean to be flip, but you will have so many chances to fail if you want to, and if you are lucky, you will even fail spectacularly, in ways that make your life worth living.
What does success mean to you?
In a general sense, success is having a lot of money, being a movie star, being a great dancer, having a lot of friends, having the best job in the world, and winning the lottery.
But, there are so many ways to achieve success, and that does not mean that you should set your standards so high that you are just achieving mediocrity.
Personally, I don’t think that you should worry too much about success. I think that you should set your standards high enough that you are doing something that you enjoy.
In that case, if you do what you enjoy, then you should be a successful person, and not a mediocre person.
You shouldn’t be trying to achieve a huge goal in your life that you will have to spend your entire life pursuing. Instead, you should only be aiming to do something that you really enjoy, something that is going to bring you a lot of joy and happiness, something that you are able to do to get a lot of enjoyment out of it.
Then, you are free to enjoy the fruits of your labor, whatever they are. That way, you can feel the joy of getting everything that you want in life, and you won’t have to worry about disappointing people, losing your job, or not being as successful as other people around you.
The best part is that you are not compromising on your values, and you are doing something that you love. So, you are never going to be disappointed.
