What Success Means To Me

While I was very young and just growing up I remember all I could see my self doing in the future is success, I have always felt like I don’t want to attain anything but success. I remember that my parent are very particular about education they want me to attain greater level in education, they believe that is the only way to get successful in the world of less opportunities but I was not sure about what I really want to do with my future but I know I want to attain success.

I knew I was going to face a high number of challenges before I could attain what I have dreamt of but I don’t really mind I just want to be successful.

In the pursue of my success I have fail so many times I remember after my education I never want to work for quite long but I knew I have to work for a firm in other for me to raise money to start my own dream business.

I went for many interviews but most of them did not employ me, it got to a point that I became weak and I was about losing hope but something in me triggered my strength and I told myself that I am going to make it, I remind myself of how much sacrifice I have put up to, to get to this stage gradually as I kept going from one interview to the other I was able to secure a not so good job for myself but I knew I have to put my mind and soul into the work in order to have a good result and outcome.

Months flew and I was promoted and I started getting a bigger pay then I started saving more for my own business which eventually start and with the new and little experience I had the business was not very successful at first but gradually it became a big cake for me and I started having branches all over the places to me that was when I became successful, to me success mean when you have gotten your dream purpose. Years passes by and I was making great income from that business which I started in a small form. I got to employ people and reach my peak. I travelled to places I have always wish to go and I was able to buy the things have been hungry to get.

To me success means an attainable height which you have work day in and day out to achieve, it almost seems like it is not possible but at the end of the day here you are, you are on top of your priority. People now serve you then you can truly say you are successful. Thing around is growing happily and friends see you as someone to run to during the time of needs and they all come out happily.

Success requires you to move out of your comfort zone, you don’t just have to sit and read inspiring success quotes, you need to step out of your comfort zone before you can achieve the success you are hungry for.

You know you are success when your parent looks at you and have no choice than to be proud of what you have become, friends see you and able to point at you as their friend in a proud manner. To me success means a greater deal, you know you have attained success when you are able to achieve everything your heart and mind have always wanted.

To me success doesn’t mean how much I really have in my bank account but how many people I am able to put smile on their faces. To me success have to do with my happiness and once am able to get my purpose in life then am truly successful.
