For some people, this word makes them overly excited. For others it presents anxiety and fear. What does it really mean to be SUCCESSFUL?? I lived so many years of my life feeling unsuccessful. I watched everyone around me grow and prosper.
At the age of 19 I found myself Pregnant with our first child. I was unfocused and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. And on top of everything else I was pregnant. At this point I had no Idea what successful meant. Success seemed so foreign to where I was at that point in my life. Little did I know, I was truly successful.
According to my good friend Google,
Being Successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals. The dictionary describes Success as the following: ”attaining wealth, prosperity and/or fame”
In 1987, I had NONE of the above. I hadn’t achieved a desired vision, I hadn’t achieved wealth, prosperity or fame.
DID that make me unsuccessful??
Too often we put labels on people and never give them the opportunity to see their full potential. Everything that is happening may not look like success, but it really is success. Success in our lives is a combination of everything that has ever occurred.
Take a look at the stars you idolize, guess what? They once were just as confused and frustrated with life as you. It’s never easy to see life as successful when we don’t look like the people we follow on IG and in the Media we can sometimes see our lives as less than Successful.
Life is a process and if you judge your life by what you see around you, you’ll never know how REAL Success is supposed look.
Real Success is ups and downs and Good days and Bad Days. It’s Highs and Lows. It’s Everything you ever wanted and some things you never asked to come into your life. YOU ARE A SUCCESS. Don’t look at the challenges as things that stop you, Use those things in life to groom you for the “success” you desire.
