The Definition Of Success

Perseverance In Doing The Right Thing

If we keep out a million distractions surrounding us and think about our goal day and night, we will succeed in our goal, no matter what. The key here is continued focus, and also making the right thing as our goal.

If the aim is only money, it may not help us much, but if we keep our aim towards learning or striving to become better at something, we achieve success in monetary terms as a bonus.

Emotional Intelligence and Success

Emotional Intelligence, the ability to understand yourself and the people that you live and work with, is an excellent trait to balance and correct yourself.

Humility And Our Willingness To Learn

One of the best traits in life is the continuous hunger to learn and be open to feedback. Being humble makes us leave our ego aside, breaking down the walls around us.

Humility makes us learn from one another, and stand upon the shoulders of giants. Instead of comparing ourselves with others, we have to create our own definitions of success.

Clarity

First, you have to know what you want. Sometimes this is best discovered by knowing what you don’t want. This can only be accomplished by trying, experimenting, and taking action.

Keep moving...

Focus

Once you become clear about what you want to do, identify the tasks that help you make the most progress.

If you can discipline yourself to work on high-value tasks, your life will change for the better.

Goal Setting

Goal setting gives your mind something to focus on. If you don’t give your mind something to go after, it won’t know what to do. Use the SMART criteria for setting goals:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Realistic
  • Timely

Being Aware of The Narrative Fallacy

The Narrative Fallacy makes us to see events as stories, with logical chains of cause and effect. When it comes to success, do not fall for the ‘narrative’ fallacy’ and think that great people became successful due to what happened to them, and if we emulate that, we will achieve the same result.

We need to do something extraordinary and exceptional to achieve great success, and that makes any successful person an exception, someone who did what few others were willing to do. Instead of googling for success, find what you want to do to change the world!

Success Is Something We Make Up

  • Very few of us went through childhood without getting any emotional scars.
  • Be it home or school, we suffered many problems when our impressionable mind wasn’t mature enough to handle them the way we can as an adult.
  • Our worldview becomes skewed, and we start to build upon the mutated version of the world around us, messing up with our lives.
  • Success by itself is not about money or fame or power, but our upbringing programs us to think about success in a certain way.

A 10 Minute Daily Review

Meditation
