“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
― Bessie Anderson Stanley
Earth is a magical place, now I know you might be wondering “why in a post about success, after such beautiful quote by Stanley, why are we talking about magic?” Well the answer is not a sophisticated one, I want to capture your attention, there I said it, my secret is out in open. So will you still read on or opt to close this tab? I urge you to read on, Maybe this post will change your view regarding something in life. Magic. I believe “Success” is a Magical Word.
Success can be defined as something little inconsequential thing like walking two steps or something really tremendous like successful landing on planet mars BUT there’s always isn’t it? Walking two steps can be tremendous step for a handicap person and successful landing on mars can be itsy bitsy thing if you are already living in an alternative reality where Planet Travel is equivalent to travelling to next state, so, in short “Success is a State of Mind” it all depends on YOUR own PERCEPTION.
Never let anyone make your moment of success feel insignificant just because it is not high up on someone else’s ladder. Everyone has their own struggles and the way they go about certain circumstances is different, like finger prints no two persons are 100% same no matter the similarities. Same goes about Success, Everyone have their own version of Success, Maybe for a Handicap its going about their own daily life without any help and for a student its scoring top marks.
Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something because that’s what society do they sit back, comment, eat popcorn and see the drama unfold. So, don’t let anyone ever come between YOU and YOU desired SUCCESS because at the End of the Day when it’s all said and done it is you standing alone on a long winded road that is yet to be Travelled and It will be YOU ALONE looking back on the Years and Reminiscing the Good and Bad Times and at that moment it will be YOUR desired success which will make you happy not what the “other” person or “Society” set for you. So, Set a Goal which makes YOU Happy, No matter how Insignificant it seems to other, as long as it makes you happy it is the one!
