Across the world, the definition of success is almost unchanged. Success is represented by two factors: wealth and recognition. In her book "Thrive" Arianna Huffington compares this definition to a person sitting on a chair with only two legs. Eventually, the chair will collapse underneath.
So what is it that we are missing?
And why do people, who are very succesfull on paper, end up, oftentimes, not feeling succesful or happy at all?
Have you ever felt succesful because you loved the weather? Or because you enjoyed spending time with your friends? Would you ever say I am succesful because today I cooked a yummy meal, read an interesting book, looked at myself in the mirror and liked what I saw? Why not include our happiness and joy in our definition of success? Instead, we feel guilty about those things that bring us joy because they take time away from the career goals we need to achieve.
I believe that the most succesfull people are the ones who live their life finding joy everywhere, and not letting the outside worls dictate what success must mean.
My favorite recent quote!
"And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, "This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!
And each day, it's up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, "No. This is what's important."
