What is success? You may say ‘earning lots of money’ but think again. No one will look back on their lives and be pleased they had shed-loads of cash stuffed under the mattress. Of course, having some financial security is nice and allows you to do things you may not otherwise be able to do but there is much more to success than wealth.
An author with the splendid name of Whit Hobbs summed it up nicely with the following quote:
“Success is waking up in the morning, whoever you are, however old or young you are, and bounding out of bed because there’s something out there that you love to do, that you believe in, that you’re good at – something that’s bigger than you are, and you can’t hardly wait to get at it again today.”
“Lack of success is waking up in the morning after hitting the snooze button a bunch of times. Doesn’t matter how old or young you are, you feel blah. You slowly get out of bed with a feeling of stress about your day. You may have thoughts going through your mind like – Another day another dollar. I have to get out of bed now and go to my job. Can’t wait for the weekend. I am tired of making someone else’s wallet fat”
Which of the above applies to you? If you’re not happy with your answer, then you need to take action – now.
