Who's Measuring Your Success?

It just feels fitting. We strive for it, desire it, and some of us write songs about it (Or at least download songs about it). Success... But our definitions of the word vary so much that for some it's difficult to determine what it means to be successful, let alone when they've actually reached success. Can someone only be called successful when they have the money, cars, clothes, and hoes? I suppose. But we all know how the saying goes: Mo' money mo' problems. I'm not gonna talk about the jealousy aspect of it though (That'd be too easy). I want to take a look into what most people don't (or at least don't talk about): Once you get it, you have to work even harder to keep it. After you drive off the lot in a new whip, you gotta change the oil, rotate the tires, wash and wax, and keep it gassed up. And don't let something break down on your car. I've seen that break a few people down to where they quit... A guaranteed way to avoid success.

Success... By definition it means to achieve or accomplish a preset goal. So that means in order to be successful you first have to determine what you're aiming to be successful at (Can I get an amen?). Are you aiming to get the money, cars, clothes, and hoes? Are you aiming to move up the corporate ladder at your job? Am I aiming to get a new Escalade and be able to maintaint it? Yes I am, and yes it's personal because it applies just as much to me as it does to you. I've had some areas of success: I wanted to own a home and get married to a beautiful young woman that I'm crazy about and got both (success). I also have areas to grow in to success (like my Escalade). We can all benefit from constantly adding new goals after we've succeeded. That's the motivation to continue being successful.

I have a request for you. I want you to ask yourself what you're most passionate about. What motivates you the most and why? The reason is because this is what you truly desire to be successful at, and when you can identify it, you've already started on the path to achieving it. When you figure it out, I want you to write down everything that it would take to make that happen (How much easier is it to make a move when you know what direction to move in). Then make it happen. P.U.S.H. Pray Until Something Happens and Persist Until Something Happens. On the way you will come across haters, and plenty of people that don't want to see you succeed, but remember this: "Others can stop you temporarily - you are the only one who can do it permanently." - Zig Ziglar. Was this helpful to you? What are you aiming to be successful at? What does success mean to you? Let me know in the comments below!
