What is success?
It's not a one size fits all deal.
It's not a mold that all who seek to be successful must fit into.
It's not a rubber stamp one must be stamped with to be approved.
Here are a couple of definitions that I think are a bit closer to the mark.
"Success is the progressive realization of worthwhile, predetermined, personal goals."
- Paul J. Meyer
John C Maxwell suggests that success is:
1. Knowing your purpose in life.
2. Growing to reach your maximum potential.
3. Sowing seeds that benefit others.
Arthur Ashe came up with a classic when he said, "Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome."
I believe that success is not a random phenomenon.
It's not an accident that just happens nor is it reliant on the random roll of the dice.
With the right tools and massive action, success is within everyone's reach.
