In my #dictionaryfriday episode 2, I talk about success, like always I use Webster New World Dictionary and my Apple Dictionary to define the terms.
What is the meaning of Success?
According to My Webster Dictionary Success is (noun) 1. a favorable result 2. the gaining of wealth, fame, etc. 3. a successful person or thing.
According to Apple success is (noun) the accomplishment of an aim or purpose• the attainment of popularity or profit• a person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains prosperity• archaic the outcome of an undertaking, specified as achieving or failing to achieve its aims.
Define Your Life
Oh success, how you are used in the wrong way so often. Here is the thing people use the word success to describe a feeling.
For example, when someone ask “Do you think you are successful?” Most people will say ” I am happy with my life so yes, I am!”
But, here is the thing, happiness and success do not necessarily early hang out together. Based on the definition is appears you need to finish something that leads to the ackomplishment of a goal or dream, for you to have success. Nowhere in the definitions does it say, success is Happiness.
You can reach success as defined, and be unhappy!
Let’s stop defining our worth, and joy, based on success. Let’s stop thinking that to be happy you have to qualify as successful. Keep working towards your goals while being joyful and happy, don’t waste any more of your life waiting for success to experience true Happiness.
