What Is Success?

Success for you doesn”t necessarily means success for me. What is success for you, it might not be for somebody else, and that is all there is.

There is no destination for everything. Once you reach destination, you are not going to be more happy than you are now. You simply won”t. Look at success as a journey. There is no end to your goals. Once you reach your goals, you will want to reach some other, new goals. It is about the journey. It is about be, do and have better than yesterday. It is about growing and evolving every day.

What it is that you wanna achieve in the future? A stay at home mother of 5 and the one who is into career, can be equally happy. You need to define what success means to you.

Successful people are not going to talk about the success at last, but about the journey that they been through, challenges that they faced and they stood up, stronger than ever.

Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

What are some signs that you will be successful in the future? You are super competitive. You know how to outwork everyone. You know the things, you know them in full.

Success is all about mental state. It is a state that you either feel or not feel successful. It is how you look at things.

I am sitting now at the airport waiting for my flight and I feel quite successful, even thought for some I might not look successful, I don”t have a house, car and all the exotic vacations, but I managed to be successful in all the undertakings.

There are the ways that you can discover what truly matters to you, and what success means for you. It is about asking yourself questions, powerful questions that will reveal who you truly are and what are your values.

Questions that you need to ask yourself in order to discover what success truly means to you are:

I am suggesting that you take a notebook or piece of paper and start writing your answers. Really, and truly, be honest with yourself, and write like there is no tomorrow. Be completely and utterly honest with yourself.

One more things that is really important is that you need to be specific. You can”t just say that you want happiness. You need to be clear to say what things you do to make you happy, with whom and where.

I will never forget when I asked a friend of mine a question related to her work. I wasn”t ask specific question, and guess what, I didn”t get specific answer, not the one that satisfied me, or answered to my question. The day I realized that I need to ask more specific questions, changed entire course of my life.

 “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”

— Herman Melville

There are many aspects of life that we need to manage well in order to find happiness, true fulfillment and success. We are body, mind and spirit and we need to feed all three in order to function well. It is the same with life. Just some of the life aspects are: work (your career), health (your physical health), learning (your personal development), social (your relationships with others), spiritual (your relationship with the greater power).

You need to find a way to feed all 5. If you are into spirituality and you are learning all about this, that wont bring you any good in your health or career.

What you get will never make you truly happy – who you become will. -Tony Robbins

I made a Youtube video about this topic, and I am really passionate about this because it is the thing that all should consider to think about it. We need to define what success means to us.

Success can mean: feeling that tingle of excitement about what you do, sticking with what matters through hard times, living a life you can feel proud of in retrospect.

Success provides confidence, security, a sense of well-being, the ability to contribute at a greater level, hope and leadership. Without success, you, the group, your company, your goals, dreams and even entire civilizations cease to survive.

Success can mean: feeling that tingle of excitement about what you do, sticking with what matters through hard times, living a life you can feel proud of in retrospect. These talks say it all.

There is a short video about success and what leads people to success. I highly recommend to watch this video. It is very short and fun. Here it is:

What will lead you to success is: Passion, Work, Focus, Persist, Ideas, Good, Push and Serve.

There is no success if you are not doing anything without passion. You need to be led by love and passion in order to feel and be successful. Work, work, work, nothing without work. I know! There is no easy way to success, but always hard work will guarantee you success. Focus! You need to keep the focus on what and why do you want it. People who have a laser focus to the goal that they wanna achieve never miss the target.

Persistence in everything is the key. To fail, but to stood up is the key to success. You are building confidence by that. Soon after you are realizing that a lion lies within you. Ideas, you gotta have ideas. You need to relax in order ideas to flow to you. Everything in life that you see now someone sometime had an idea in his mind.

You need to be good at it, and the only way to become good at something is practice, practice, practice. In the times that you feel down you need to find that last atom of the energy and push yourself to continue with your work. Serving people is the best and easiest way to get to the riches.

Life Is But a Dream

Do you ever feel whatever you been through in the past doesn”t exist, it didn”t exist, and feels like it was centuries ago? That was like an old you, and it was, that wasn”t you. Than was an old version of you.

 

Life is everything but a dream, or
Life is nothing but a dream?!

 

You and me are constantly dreaming, either good or bad. You get to choose what are you going to dream about. You wonder how to dream good things? You need to be focused on the good. You just cannot dream bad and expect good. Doesn”t go this way.

Don”t get things too seriously. We often times think life is very serious. It is not. We tend to rush, we tend to hurry, and those are the times that we stop creating, we stop creating our DREAM life. Nothing is happening by forcing something, you just might get a burnout, and then you will blame a God, country that you living in, all that is, just not you. Things will come to you when you least expect.

Constantly remind yourself how all that is, all that has been, and all that will be, is just a dream. All is temporary. Don”t be too scared to do something new. All will vanish. Don”t be affraid of what people might say about you, the truth is they don”t think about you at all, people think about themselves all the time. They are mostly occupied about their life, not yours.

It is amazing time that we living in ow. It is truly fascinating all the resources that we have. Information and answers that we need, we can find out with one click. Everything is available to us, just the question is, how much we are open to this, and can allow to ourselves, how much we can handle.

Working Hard

What does it mean for you working hard? Do you ever had a feeling of tiredness, but at the same time it seems you didn”t much accomplished? So, staying until late night does not mean you are doing something meaningful.

For example, being at office, does not mean you are doing sales calls, you might scroll Facebook or update software. Do you see the difference?

The most valuable question you can ask yourself is: “What is the most valuable use of my time right now?” By questioning that to yourself, you will naturally draw yourself to the things that really matter.

Hard working hands

I remember a times when I worked in our family business. Those were times when I was working more that 12 hours, but I loved it, and it was our family business. Everybody would contribute that much, if they really care, but the question is, where will that get you. Do you taking proper care about yourself as well. I didn”t! That”s why I had a painful back. Was killing me.

One day I said STOP to everything, because I had to take better care of myself. I stopped working so hard. I focused on myself, my health, wellbeing and everything, and eventually I changed country of living, and thus far that is my best decision ever. I grew as a person.

I still wonder what does it mean to work hard, because let”s face it, people all over the world are waking up. They see potential in themselves and others, and they are trying to pursue their dreams. I am one of them. I try to be specific about my goals and everyday do something about it. I tried to fill myself with coffees, cut off my sleep, but it didn”t work, I felt so tired. Our body and cells needs rest.

If you keep asking yourself question why is that, why is that, why is that, eventually you will come up with answer. I still wonder what is the best use of my time. Should I go out with this friend, or better stay at home and work on my business. If I go out, I might be bored, but most importantly I might meet somebody new. What should I do?

Working hard doesn”t always mean being effective. We should be able to take a break, to sit back and relax. I was told just recently on my job how I am a “layd back”person. I took that as a compliment, because there are very rare people who are able to stay calm in a midst of busy times. I just don”t see anymore why we should freak out about the jobs that we are doing. Everything will solve out, eventually.

Now, your turn! What does it mean to work hard for you? How many hours do you put in your business? Maybe I just need to ask myself question more frequently: “What is the most valuable use of your time Maja right now?” And that will give me clarity, put me away of endless scrolling my Instagram and Facebook feed, and focus on the things that really matter.

How do you managing your time? What does it really mean for you to work hard? Do you feel tired and overwhelmed working hard? Do you feel like on a good track working hard? Do you feel like you wanna be some place else working hard or you have that sense or rightness?
