What Will Success Mean to You?

We all want to be successful but the word 'success' means different things to different people. Which is your definition?

Success 1. Wealth. I want to be a multimillionaire. I want at least one large car and to live ina mansion in the country. I also want to have a large yacht and apartments or houses in the United States and in the most popular European countries. I want to mix with important and famous people.

Success 2. Power. I want to make my mark in the business world. I would exercise great influence in this field and earn in excess of £1 million per year minimum. I would enjoy having the power over people and events.

Success 3. Contentment. I want to have enough money to live comfortably and to have the freedom to enjoy my private life, to spend time with my family and friends and to enjoy my hobbies to the full. I want to be able to make as much money as I want when I want it but my success depends on my happiness and the happiness of my family. The operative word is contentment.

Which appeals to you? Personally I enjoy being out of the rat race. I'm free to enjoy my life in the way I want, in the country with my horses, dog and other animals. It suits me and I am happy. But I also know that if I wanted more I have the capability and confidence to acquire all want. To me, that is success.

I love this post. My idea of success changed today after I attended a business conference that said Generation X & Y is gaining apathy in the workplace. Now,success for me is being on top in business compared to my generation. Please read my blog and share it with your readers.

Thank you.
