UNIT 3:

The Contributor’s Vision of Success
...Not only external rewards but also deep inner fulfillment Explore the meaning of success in your life. Contributors have a deeper and wider definition of success than Non-contributors. While Non-contributors define success in terms of material success, achievement, external impact, etc. Contributors are able to deepen and widen this definition of success to include personal fulfillment, development of self-esteem, ongoing development of personal capabilities, etc. Concept Exploration Concept Application Field Work (Projects) Swami Vivekananda speaks to you pg. 2-7 pg. 8-19 pg. 20-21 pg. 22-23

UNIT 3: THE CONTRIBUTOR’S VISION OF SUCCESS

Concept Exploration
EXPLORATION 1:

Expanding one’s Vision of Success
External Success
I want a bonus, so I will work for the targets given.

External Success + Inner Success
The bonus offered for meeting targets will only be an additional benefit... ...More important, I want to experience the challenge of working for a target and the joy of achieving it.

REFLECTIONS
Q1. Share an experience where you or someone you know, were part of a group trying to achieve some goal, where though the goal was not accomplished for various reasons, you all thoroughly enjoyed the process and felt it was worth it (the excitement of working together, the energy created in the group, the thrill of overcoming challenges and finding solutions, the sense of achievement, etc.). Would you also call this a kind of “success”? Write about this experience.

EXPLORATION 2:

Expanding one’s Vision of Success
External Success
I want to come first in the marathon.

External Success + Inner Success
Not only do I want to come first in the marathon... … I also want to build the confidence, will-power, and stamina to run such long distances, face the challenges that come up with a positive attitude (without giving up), and beat my previous record. I want to also develop self-discipline.

REFLECTIONS
Q1. Sometimes one does not “win” an external achievement, yet one feels that one has gained confidence and become stronger from the experience. To others this might look like a “failure” but to you it doesn’t seem so. Have you or anyone you know experienced this? Write about this experience.

Q2.

Life is not always smooth and easy – tough times are bound to come. How does such a wider vision of success change the way one deals with failures and tough situations that come up in life?
