Are You A Success Person???

In my last posting I mentioned a word of 'success'. What does 'success' mean to you?? I think before we talk about this interesting word, we should know about its definition.

Several resources I got, they said that 'success' is:

1. Success means different things to different people. For some, monetary reward is a measure of success. Yet others have multiple definition of success.

a. The Different Areas

They measure it across a few areas. It can be career, health, spiritual, emotional, time or financial. As an example, one can be successful in one’s career but not emotionally. Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive - so you can add areas that are relevant to you.

To find your own definition of success you need to dig deep within yourself and question your values in life. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are the things that are important to you? By answering these questions you can then come closer to your own definition of success.
Be aware that this can be a long process. You may not get the answers so quickly. But it is alright. Define your measure of success, one at a time.

b. It is A Journey

When defining your success, remember this important thing. Success is a journey. It has multiple peaks and not one ultimate pinnacle. One success builds on another. Setbacks and mistake will also help you build success. At different periods of your life, success is defined differently. (csfn)

2. Success is a mindset (Jennie S. Bev)

Two of those resources above are enough for me to define 'success', and brafely I will say that I am a success person because I am healthy, have a happy life with my own family although I am just a simple person who becomes a lovely wife for my husband, a lovely mother for my children, a good person to be a friend to my friends, a good and loyal associate at my work, a responsible and loyal person in doing the activities that I like to do them, and as an inspirational person to the readers who they might think I am as their inspirational person to them (thank you), although I don't have millions dollars at my bank account, I drive my own car, 1997 Oldsmobile (silver sedan) that I bought with my own money after 1 year working and put away 20% of every paycheck I got, living in a cute and small house with almost a half acre land, feeling free to express everything through my writings, feeling happy in doing a lot of things that I like to do, and exciting in doing several things in order to reach several achivements in the future.

Success is not a happiness, but a happiness in doing and having something that I do and enjoy, it will bring me to be a success person. (Fida Abbott)

You might have a giant house or have millions dollars in your bank account, a good career, as a famous person/artist, going to vacation every year to another country, or driving an excellent car, but if you have problems with your health, have unhappy family or you feel unhappy by yourself, feeling not safe, feeling nobody loves you and maybe they love you because of a certain purpose; do you think you still consider yourself as a success person?? I don't think so.

If you think you are a success person, I encourage you to write in your Blog, why you consider yourself as a success person. Let me know if you have done, so we will together celebrate our successful world!!!!

I have the same opinions with this writer to describe about Soeharto, Indonesia ex-President. I always see someone from a good side because as a human being, we never escape from the minuses. Nobody is perfect!!

That is a very nice review sister. The definition of success could be different for each person. The standard that we placed o success itself could determine the result. If we put the standard in a highest place which it is not realistic and very difficult to reach, we will never be satisfied and always looking for more. But if we put a standard in a many small things, success is not difficult to reach. Me, myself is actually a perfectionist person which always want everything to be as perfect as possible. Then I realized that there are things that human can not avoid and can not fulfilled without the grace of Christ and there are also things that is out of our control. At that moment, when we place the standard of success in the top rank, we will not get it. We might can get it but it take a very long journey to be fulfilled. What I learn is that we have to be thankful for every little success we made. It is better than grumbling for many big successes we did not make.

Anyway, have a great day sister!

PS: I also want to buy car by my own money. But it must cost about at least 50 million here (or may be more). My salary in one year can not afford it. Lol. But I have hope. :)

Hi Devita, Thank you.
I think it is better you write a post about this theme based on your prespective.

Have great day!

Postingan ini termasuk salah satu tema favoritku dan termasuk bagian dari pergumulan hidupku. Setuju, ukuran sukses orang bisa berda-beda. Ada yang bilang sukses itu adalah achievement atau pencapaian suatu prestasi. Yang lain bilang, ia adalah sebuah perjalanan, yang artinya prosesnya itu jauh lebih penting ketimbang achievementnya. Yang lain lagi bilang, bukan prosesnya, bukan pula achievementnya yang penting. Tetapi, seberapa besar ia memberi inspirasi kepada orang lain. Dan saya lebih memilih yang terakhir. Alasannya, karena disitu ada konsep untuk berbagi kepada orang lain. Namun,pergumulan hidup saya sekarang adalah berusaha melakukan kehendak Tuhan sehingga sukses itu akan datang mengikuti. Jadi causa primanya bukan pada sukses, melainkan pada kehendakNya...Tetap semangat ya bu.GBU.

Mas Sahala, sukses sudah saya lihat pada diri anda. Sebagaimana Jenny bilang, bahwa success is a mindset, maka mindset Mas Sahala adalah menjalankan kehendak Tuhan, merupakan jalan menuju kesuksesan.

Salam sukses!!!
