What is Success All About?
I have a friend, whom I have been knowing him for almost 20 years. Just recently, he invited me to his insurance company annual dinner, which he will be presented with the top award that he has been working on for the past few years. In fact, it has been quite some time since the last time my wife and I meet him, may be 2 months, I guess. Anyway, when he saw us that night, he was so happy and grateful that we attended his dinner. We were given a booklet with all the winners’ name and photo in it, of course, my friend was there too. Not one award, in fact, it was few, actually.
We were brought by him to the dinner table that his parent and his sister were there too. Yes, I know his family, old friend, right?Â So we chit chat a bit. When it was my friend’s time to go up the stage to receive award, his parent went up to present the flower to him and suddenly, I felt very pround of him. As a man, when you have been working so hard for your success and it get recognize, you will feel very happy.
So the question pop up in my mind, what is success all about? How do you define success?
A lot of people say that having a lot of money mean success, some other people may say driving a big car is success, or some other people may say that by becoming a boss is a success. Whatever it is, for me, success mean alot, it means:
– You work very hard for something and get recognize.
– You respect by everyone.
– You have a lot of friends.
– You are very knowledgeable in your area of expertise.
– You have a wonderful family.
– You have your own career.
– You have wisdom.
– You are very healthy (This is important!!!).
So, these are some of the things that I can think of in term of success, how about you?
