I know i sound crazier everyday with these off the cuff questions. In truth i think all humans have some degree of insanity, just not to the point of having to be committed or put on meds. I am comfortable with my kind of crazy.
Today was a dynamic day. It rained English style till about 2 pm. When the rain was done, went out to oxford street around 3.30pm just to window shop with my sister inlaw. We got back at 8pm. We had candid convos about losing her husband etc.
Anyways to todays hot sexy topic. Do you think you are a success? What the hell is success anyway? I thought i was successful at 23 when i nailed a six figure salary in USD (ahh mean Unired States Dallas). My salary doubled by the time i left that job 5 years later. Success was being able to consider the option of buying a bentley cash out but not doing it.
I am 32, minimal annual income since i left consulting behind and trying to chase a dream. I am not even sure i have 100,000 Naira in my account and i still consider myself successful. I have some assets. But now the thing i am thinking is if i ever see myself as a failure or i am a perpetual optimist or just dis-illusioned? Or is my own success simply defined by me?
Success in my own terms is having peace. Love is peace, sucess is peace. I think peace is the defining emotion in my life. Success means being at peace with my decisions and ensuring i am happy executing those decisions. So I doubt my feelings of success are attached to how much money i have. I believe i am living my purpose till date and my past and present help direct my future in both negative and positive ways.
I would say i am 85% successful. The only things that i believe i am yet to accomplish are childbirth and opening the school. So i insist, “I AM SUCCESSFUL”! Are you? What does it mean to you? Feel free to rate your perceived success rate.
