Success is not an eventual pinnacle. It is an odyssey that has multiple peaks, and at each peak one must strive to attain his goal and culminate his efforts into something fruitful. Different people have myriad opinions about success. Some relate it with money, some with power. However, for me “success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best, to become the best of that you are capable of becoming.” It consists in being content with what you do!! Success is something one assembles from components he discovers in his soul and his imagination. It can be achieved by knowing, understanding, believing in oneself, and executing the apposite actions required to achieve it. “The truth is that all of us attain the greatest success and blithe possible in this life whenever we use our native capacities to their greatest extent.” “Do not aim for success if you want it! Just do what you love and believe in, and…it will come naturally.” Sorrowfully, success has been commercialized with fame and popularity. “The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic, and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them-for the most part- humble, tolerant, and kind.” Setbacks also help in achieving success. It is very aptly said that discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success. Multi-faceted success doesn’t lie in not falling, but lies in rising each time you fall. If we become dejected, we will be in nadir and will lose the hope to ever rise again. It is imperative that we take our failures in our stride, which will actuate us to accomplish our tasks. Having done so, we can set an inspiring example and leave an indelible imprint on the minds of others to emulate.
