“Success” has a different meaning for different people. It might mean wisdom, money, recognition, fame and so on. In my opinion success denotes achieving one’s goals. Thus anyone can be successful. Anyone can achieve their aim. Anyone can walk on the road to success. There is no secret of success. Nobody is born successful. Its the qualities and skills which make a person successful.
Now here is a test to check your direction on your road to success. In the end it will also suggest where to improve, in order to increase your chances of being successful. So lets begin –
1. Are you passionate about something ?
Do you like doing something, without which your existence is meaningless ? Is there some skill or hobby which you love doing ? Do you have a goal to achieve in life ? Is there something which you would happily do even if you are woken at midnight ?
Sheer bliss !!! Yes that’s how i feel when i complete my targets and deadlines. Sometimes the targets may be small just like to finish some particular task in some time duration and sometimes the target may be somewhat big like to complete some major portion of the project. But believe me the pleasure, happiness and sheer bliss is always almost the same :).
Happiness is one of the best achievements of the life sometimes even more precious than name, fame or money. If you have everything but no happiness then that ‘everything’ is of no use at all.
Such moments make me feel so good. I forget my surroundings and also the past setbacks are no more remembered. Sometimes this sheer bliss persists for weeks together ! I love such happening times of my life when i go over the top. I hope the frequency of these days keeps increasing exponentially :).
The main cause of this happiness and bliss is a sense of achievement and fulfillment. When you put in hours or days or weeks of efforts into something and when its finally completes successfully it is bound to give happiness. Its a great feeling when efforts finally bear fruits.
So i would suggest, next time when you get the opportunity to perform, take it as a challenge. Give your best. Give all your time. If it’s not good enough then try again. Don’t give it up in between. Because quitting or giving up is one of the worst feeling in life. Trying and losing is always better that not trying ! Finally when the time, energy, efforts, hard work and perseverance result in a big success ENJOY !!!
