I just wanted to know

I just wanted to know that “What is success in your Opinion?”

Success has its own style and meaning to everyone. The meaning of success for me is different from the meaning of success to you. So I want to confirm success with your point of view.

  1. What is your meaning of success? I’m curious to know!

    Success to me is accomplishing goals, whether small or mammoth-sized. Whether success ifs at the bottom of Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, or the highest tier where someone is working towards self-actualization, it is all relative to the person. I am sitting in the third/fourth tier most days.

    We are already more successful than the majority of people on this planet. If you have a roof over your head, you are successful at finding shelter. If you have food on your plate, you are successful at having these resources available to you. If you are in a loving relationship, then you’re successful at finding love. If you’re crushing huge goals financially well past survival needs, then you’re in a very small % of people who are successful at staying focused and in control of your destiny. Like I said, success is all relative to the person. Have a good day, and stay blessed! 😊💕

    1. Nicely described, I agree with all your ways of explanation. In short we can say that success is the key to happiness. If we are having inner satisfaction at what and how we are, we are the most successful people on the planet.

  2. One of the biggest lies that society tell us is, “work hard and you can be anything you want to be.” It’s often sold as the “American Dream” that anyone can be what they want to be i.e. I can grow up to be President. Another lie is, “you can be the best in the world.”

    These are lies that are accepted by Christians and non-Christians. These lies damage our worldview and become distorted through the biblical views of “success.” These lies define us in the 21st century, and we’ve made it an idol. Personal success and achievements has us believing we don’t need God, that our security rest in our careers, money and status. To be at the top means you have to step over people and be someone that no one likes.

    Scripture gives us an answer to the misguided idea of success. It’ stated by Jesus, Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30). As Christians we have a mission that God expects us to accomplish. We are to do the work of ministry, use our talents and gifts to glorify God, and to further His Kingdom. God calls us to live a life of significance not success. I want a life of significance. I want to make a difference in this word, so when I leave this place I made an impact.

    1. Absolutely Kim, life of significance is more than success. We are here to help others and live a life to glorify God. We are here to raise humanity so that we will remembered in a great way after death. If we have inner satisfaction on what we have done si far, we are the most successful person in the world.

    2. I hear what you are saying but that is only relative if you actually believe in organized religion. Also I do not believe in a book that I have no real proof who wrote it, so I have a difficult time with your reply. I am a non believer today, and I am not caught up in greed. I have always volunteered, given my time, I work as a counsellor. I believe you have to always believe in others. I believe that had to be within you, to me it has nothing to do with god. I believe that is just another way to manipulate humans , that is why we have such dictatorship leaders. We have so many avenues that people go and gather to pray and speak of god, it would be more useful if everyone was out in the community actually helping those in need. I do not see a lot of that. I am o my sharing my view point but respect your opinion. Have a great evening.

      1. Here I would like to say that we all are right at our own ideas and beliefs. Many people whi believe in God but can’t fulfill their desires. I truly believe in the oneness of God and in our beliefs, supporting other people should be our first priority. Have a great evening Lucy.

    1. Success to me is, happiness and satisfaction at what we are is the real success. Many people are not satisfied with a lot of maney but many people are satisfied having no money in their hand but having just love in their hearts for themselves and for others.
