How do you measure success? A promotion on your job? A nice apartment? An expensive car? Recognition from your peers? I guess we might be able to list many other things that are commonly associated with the idea of success. According to thesaurus.com "success" is defined as "the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one's goals". What is that goal that we are all striving to achieve? What is that fire that keeps us going and make everything possible for us?
I think this is something called WILLPOWER.
Nothing ever comes for free, a huge dose of hard work with the right amount of resilience and tons of bravery are the must have ingredients to bake a success. Mixing those ingredients is not as easy as 1, 2, 3... but it will be easier if we only believed more in ourselves, believing that we are worth it, believing that we deserve it. Not much different than with religion - if we believe in God, then we might find ourselves experiencing his/her presence in our daily life - in the same way if we believe that we can achieve great things, we might find ourselves noticing those little things that make us just incredible human beings. And what about you?
