The fundamental problem with the common acceptance of the definition of success by the vast majority of people is their biaised world view.
Most people identify success with financial wealth. Success is so much more. Genuine sucess is about self-awareness, self-acceptance, time and happiness. The fight for material success is everything that’s wrong with the world. It only creates misery and leads to countless failures.
Real success needs no words, it thrives in silence. The most successful at life remain forever anonymous. That’s their power and that’s their strength but it’s also their weakness. To the people at least. Not to themselves. We all know them, they are everywhere. They are private heroes and they need no stars on the pavements of the Earth. They are the winners and theirs is the only success that will ever truly exist.
I’m starting to feel pretty successful myself.
