Becoming a Success Giant!

Introduction

Success - we all read about it, hear it on the news, and label some individuals as "successful." In this society, a person is believed to be successful, just by measuring the amount of money a person earns, the size and location of his/her house and the vehicles they drive. You are successful if?

?you vacation in a far-off land, you are successful.

?you wear designer clothes and dine or entertain at renowned restaurants you are successful.

There are many definitions of success, almost as many as there are individuals. Your idea of success may not be mine and vice versa. I may not be concerned with what I drive and do not base this on success. You, however, might take great care in who shops at what store in order to attain the label of success. Whatever your criteria is for placing someone, including yourself, on a preferred list of successful individuals, is based in part on what is of value to you. If you value home location, then successful people live in certain areas. There are those that feel that opulent spending signifies status in the honor rolls of life. Who is correct and what assumption is accurate?

None of them are and yet they all are. No matter what you base the concept of successful living on, only the individual involved can attest to the fact that they feel successful. There is an old saying that "only true success will lull you to sleep at night." True success is basically living up to your potential and fulfilling life goals and expectations that you have set for yourself. You work hard to make your dreams come true; your family is well taken care of so you can rest at night. Yet, there are those who do not have financial comfort, yet make do with what they have and share their love and attributes with their family and friends. Both individuals are successful. They have done what is expected of them and beyond.

Understanding Success

Success is one of those words that we all understand, or at first glance, we think we do. We hear that someone is a big success, and we nod in agreement and apparent understanding. But what is success? Webster defines success as reaching a conclusion, usually a fortunate one. OK, what is fortunate? Most of us correlate success with money. If someone has a lot of money we tend to think of him or her as successful. But if you've been around a few years you know that money doesn't buy happiness. Money can make one's life easier and that can eliminate many obstacles to happiness, but money itself brings little or no inherent joy. And joy is the trademark of success.

I propose that success is achieving, in this lifetime, whatever you want to, to make you happy. Therefore, success is very personal and completely individual. Furthermore, success does not come as a result of money, but money may come as a result of success. Success is a feeling. Success is a state of being in which we feel a sense of joy, fulfillment, and achievement.

Forget what the media proclaims. Ignore what friends and family consider a success. Focus instead on what success means to you. Are you successful right now? If you feel good about the person you are being, then you are successful. If you feel joy when you are being who you are, if you feel fulfillment when you are doing what you do, this is your soul shouting encouragement at being the real you. This is success.

Success is About Self-Believe

There are no set steps you must take to reach success. There are just basic issues to overcome and control. These are few and simple. You must believe in what you do, be willing to share your knowledge and expertise with others, and acknowledge that others have the same rights to success as you do.

- If you can laugh at your own mistakes, but not at those of others, and if you fail at anything, but can find the strength to get back up, then you are on the road to success.

- If an elderly person holds your respect, and a child makes you believe in life itself, then you are successful.

- If you shake the hand of an individual down on his luck as warmly as you do that of a statesman, then you are successful.

It is all in where your heart is and if you have the courage to follow it. You don't have to be exceptionally intelligent, nor endowed with great beauty or strength; you just have to be comfortable in being you.

Success is in essence immeasurable. Yet, others lay a yardstick to it day after day. Your life will decide your success, and your own peace of mind will insure it. So, let each day be a step toward hearing "A Job Well Done" when all the cards are on the table, and there is no more playing time. Success - my toast to you!

Identifying the real Successful People

Real successful people appear relaxed and have a few points in common:

- They have the sound of success. It is not in their "actual" words, but the way they talk and react.

- They are not afraid of the type of impression they are portraying, because they are real.

- They are not, "putting on an act", they are just being themselves. They shake your hand confidently, and sincerely.

- They walk with an air of confidence that only comes naturally when you are happy and content on the inside as well as out.

- They have accomplished what they have set out to do, and they have the right to be proud and happy.

Not all successful people will make headline news and be interviewed by major television stations and talk-show hosts. They don't need this type of exposure to enjoy what they have achieved. All truly successful people are willing to share their insight and knowledge so that others may reach their goals and their pinnacles of ability.

Successful people can find joy in simple things and the sound of their laughter is not a mimicking type of facade, but a down-to-earth real-time sound that tells everyone around them that life is good and enjoyable. Successful individuals take their goals and their strengths and weaknesses very seriously. They can, however, laugh at themselves, but they will never cross the line to ridicule or belittle another.

They are true giants in whatever they pursue and undertake. These people face problems and look for solutions. There is no mountain that they feel cannot be ventured over and each morning brings fresh, new opportunities.

To a successful person, others are their equals, never beneath them. They may be giants of industry or the arts, but they truly listen and lift up everyone around them. Successful people are men and women in every walk of life, different ages, nationalities, and color. They are famous or live just next door. These giants of success are not afraid to lift everyone on their shoulders, so that they can see even further.

A child is a vision and an older individual is a beacon of hope. Nature represents balance and the world is an arena of growth and true prosperity. Money, fame, and fortune are tangible and can disappear overnight. Family, friends, and values last a lifetime and are worth their weight in gold. Time spent in truly listening to someone else is quality time and sometimes a simple walk down a woodland path with a friend is a chance to renew strength and composure. Winning an argument to them does not as important as understand the views of another.

Conclusion

Successful people are everywhere. They are in the newspapers, on television programs, and are being interviewed and their words written down by reporters for all kinds of magazines and journals.

You are successful if you feel successful in the small achievements as well as the larger ones. You are successful if you feel you have all that you need, but you know the difference between want and need. You can share what you have and find that it multiplies in return.

You all are successful, in your own way; just you need to realize it from within. This is my gift to all of you, on the occasion of Christmas and New Year.

Have a great time and enjoy your life with your near and dear ones.

With Lots of Love,
