Do you now the true meaning of success? Success has many facets. Achieving what can be termed as a major triumph such as success in your work or personal victory after a long, hard slog can bring a wonderful sense of euphoria when –and if - you finally get to the peak. This up-hill climb to success can be unforgiving and difficult in terms of maintaining the momentum needed to achieve the ultimate task and is more suited to those brave souls who are prepared to live on the edge and do anything it takes to achieve their goals.
But what about those of us who prefer to pace ourselves? After all, each of us has the capacity to be successful in our own rights whether we run like the hare or take a slower pace like the tortoise. Many of us are more suited to setting small, easily achievable goals that can bring about daily successes. This can include anything that takes you that extra mile such as finishing a piece of work that contributes towards the bigger picture or learning a new skill. Rewarding yourself for smaller successes on a daily basis makes life’s journey more pleasant while giving the sense that you’re really getting the most out of each day …and enjoying it immensely too. Is this a true meaning of success? Read on.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with taking life to extremes to achieve your goals. More often than not, those who prefer this more intense approach of taking themselves to the limit find it’s the only way for them. How you go about achieving success is very much ‘each to his / her own. So what works best for you?

Im sharing an article in the newspaper on 01 Jun 08 by Douglas Vermeeren

The most important beginning principle for creating greatness in your life is to recognise and then utilise the principle of personal power and personal accountability. Every person comes with the built-in ability to choose their actions and reactions for any given set of circumstances. How we use this ability will ultimately determine all of the outcomes we will experience in our lives. Those who attain the greatest successes in life do so, not because their circumstances have been dramatically different from others, but because their choices have been. It is our personal choices and accountability that have the most significant impact on the kind of lives we will lead.

Many people do not realise that even the so-called little moments can have great impact, and it may be easy to justify not giving our attention to them because the consequences may not be immediately apparent. However, an ancient proverb shares this great truth in a different way; “The greatest walls are built with the smallest bricks.” Our lives are the same, and we must begin with the little things.

Now, how will you know which little things really deserve your attention? There is an easy solution for us in prioritising all things. Before beginning to sort out life things we need to have a system in place. It’s like building a puzzle. In order for the little pieces to be productive and have value we need to understand what the big picture looks like. Our big picture is essentially defining what we want our life to look like, who we want to be and the legacy we want to leave behind.

Many people do not invest the time to answer these important questions. However, if you can do this one step at a time, you will find that all your questions will instantly become clear, and you’ll be on your path to success. But what is success? The definition is different for every individual, and only you can define your view of success.

Understand that success is a journey and not a destination. It can never be a spot of permanent completion. Success is akin to continual growth. Success is a matter of finding appropriate balance while you are in motion rather than finding a comfortable resting place to stagnate.

Lasting success is found in the balance of four independent elements.

1) Your feelings about wealth — Success in this area is not based on a specific number on a bank statement. In fact, it has very little to do with money. But it has everything to do with how you feel about what you have. Do you have enough to meet your obligations? To live the life you choose? To be free to pursue the things which are meaningful to you? There are many people who are extremely rich, but not wealthy. How do you feel about your currently level of abundance or wealth?

2) Your feelings about your health —Success has very little to do with quantity of a given thing or an outside measurement. Instead, it has everything to do with the feelings relating to a certain thing. There are many who suffer from disease, disability and challenge who feel very successful in this area. Your feelings about your own health are the important consideration for this issue.

3) Your feelings about your relationships — David O McKay, a religious leader, said it best when he stated that, “No success can compensate for failure in the home.” Everything starts in the home, but relationships also include everyone you interact with. The fullness of success is only enjoyed when we have the ability to share it with another.

4) Your feelings about your self-achievement, dreams and spirituality — What are your inner most yearnings? What is your connection to things of the spirit? How do feel about these things? Are your needs being met in this area? In some ways this area is slightly more important than the others. It’s really more of a foundation than a pillar. Until you have these elements being met in your life you cannot inspire or lift another to their greatness. Without this, you are a lot like a lifeguard who can’t swim. When you know who you are and you are confident you are headed in the right direction, magical things happen for you and those around you.

Take a moment right now and stop what you are doing … invest this time in you. Take a careful look at these four areas in your life and consider how satisfied you feel about them.

Hey Guys, while on the net, I stumbled upon a wonderful site which, besides giving more meanings of Success, has a wonderful resource on motivation.

Meaning of Success

Is the person who has money successful? Is the person who does not have money unsuccessful? The answer is “yes” on both counts - and “no” on both counts.

The reason both answers can be true at the same time is because there is more than one level that we have to think about. Money is only one measure for evaluating success. When you see a person who has a lot of money, the first thought is that this person has accomplished something good to get the money. But, in actual fact, there are other people who have been successful in fields where money is not the primary marker for success.

For instance, a person can be a brilliant parent and raise a child who goes on to become a fine person. That is wonderful success, but the evidence comes from the character of the child, not in the bank account. Another person may be a master musician and get huge satisfaction out of giving joy to other people, but not be using music to make money.

The bottom line is, success relates to accomplishing a goal, no matter what that goal might be.
