The definition of success can go on and on.
Many people see success from different perspectives. Even all the people around you think that you are successful, having branded car, elegant house and excellent lifestyle; you still have to ask yourself; is this all what you want? Do you have anything else that means more than physical possession? Do you feel happy and satisfy?
I met with one of my friends who have successfully changed his “broken lifestyle” to be “extraordinary wealthy”. He has a childhood dream of having a luxurious car. The day he bought and drove his brand new Mercedes, he told me that “I don’t feel excited at all” Well; driving a new car gives him comfort and pride, but is this real success? I am not against people having brand new car, in fact, I too have the same vision. The question is “Are we feel the value and satisfaction of the whole process?”
There are people who attain success through unscrupulous actions. They might become the king in their undertaking, but they might not be able to enjoy their career with passion. There are also people use unethical ways to win a business deal and sweep others under the carpet. These are greedy people who don’t deserve real success in life. They might be looking good outside, but the inner heart is full of rubbish. They play dirty games to get what they want. They just think about themselves and they don’t care about the victims who lost everything in life.
But don’t get me wrong. I am not intended to offend anyone here. I just wish to say that “characters” are the foundation of your happiness. When you have a right mental set up, you will handle your friends, your family and your life with great approach. There are people who boost his success so much that they forget about the meaning of humble. There are also people who were so successful that they forget about social responsibility. Some so call rich people are tight up with heavy commitment on various luxurious items and do not have any extra money for their parents.
I strongly suggest that all youngsters have to back up their life with right characters before they march into their respective career dream. Learn to reprogram your inner soul using various personal development tools. Learn to refill your inner heart with abundance of love and care. When your thoughts are right, you start to do right things, and you will surely feel satisfaction in all your endeavors.
