what is success?


      When we are talking about success, mostly the first image comes into our mind is an image of a successful business man with high social status, apartment, and quite a lot of property. Most people believe that is success and all that they do is for this purpose. But then what is real success? There is always more money, bigger house, higher position in front of us.

      What is success? Different people have different opinions on this question. Is fortune success? Is fame success? Is high social status success? My answer is not.

      To be clear about what success is must be the first step to achieving success. To a football playerscoring on the field is

    success. To a soldier, killing the enemy is success. To us, during the exam, getting a high score is success. While, for those who want to fail, is not. And this remind me of what success to a robber is managing to get money from the bank, to a murder is successfully kill someone he wanted to kill. Money to a hungry man is not a success though it can by food. But food is.   So far, the best definition I have concluded is: "Success is the achieving anything intended." In other words success is finishing what you planned to do.

      The above definition of success consists of failure and success. Make a plan and follow it and you will succeed. Make a plan and do not follow it and you will have failed. Success comes after failure.

      As you know, whatever you do, there are always two possible

    results: success and failure. When you fail, you should never lose heart. On the contrary, you must build up your confidence and work harder than before.

      I have two frogs that could best illustrate this principle. One day two frogs dropped into a jam filled with half glass of milk. At first they both jumped very hardly but it didn’t help. One of the frogs gave up and began to swim in the milk while another one kept jumping. A few days later, the second frog found that the milk under him became solid and he could jump higher and higher. (The milk turned into cheese.) The last time, he jumped with full energy high above to the mouse of the jam. He succeeded. Of course this is a tale.

      Set your own goal and trace on it, make a small progress one day, a month later it will be a big difference. People fail not because the task is difficult, but for they give up themselves in the half way. Too many people are worn down by life and give up their dreams.

      There is a saying goes like "Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going". Action is the key to success, and fail to act is the reason most people will never achieve the kind of success they dream about" Elvis Presley gave his cousin Donna some advice to help her achieve her goals for the future: "so long as you have faith in God; have faith in yourself; work hard and never let anyone tell you, you can't do something".   Every dream is personal but the principle is the same. Practice to be successful is a principle that can change your life totally. Do the things that your goal requires, whether you like it or

    not. If you want to be rich you have to do those things which will make you rich.

      Finally, it is also important for you to get along well with you co-workers, care for each other and help each other. If you follow these principles, you will certainly achieve remarkable success in the future. Having a goal is important for most people to be success but it does help to have a clear idea of what success means to you.
