Many people believe that money is the ultimate success. However, there are many wealthy people that are utterly miserable. Maybe success is about more than just money.
You can define success for yourself. Is success about money? It can be if that’s what you choose. It can also be about something else. You can set several criteria and attempt to achieve them.
What’s important is to create a definition for success that resides within your values, allows you to enjoy life, and avoids feelings of regret when you get older.
This is easier to determine than you might think.
Your definition of success is unique and yours to determine. Period! 🗣
Consider these ideas:
Whatever the reasons are that resonate with you, just make sure it is YOU who is defining what successful means for yourself. Don't leave something that important up to the expectations of society or other people. That will never serve you.

Not feeling well? Kind of blah and wishing you had something better to say about the day than a mumbled ‘fine’ when someone asks you how you are? The solution might be simpler than you think.
Our attitudes really are everything. When we’re not feeling great about our lives or how the day is going, everything can seem to go wrong. The problem is, life isn’t a steady thing. You might have one really good day followed by another equally bad. With so many things outside of your control from the weather to politics it might seem impossible to ever truly feel good about anything.
The answer lies in your thinking. By being able to think positively, you will find your entire outlook changes.
How do you develop the habit of positive thinking?
The obvious answer is to use more positive words. Instead of saying something negative, either out loud or in your head, try to find a better way to say things. For example, work isn’t grueling so much as it might have interesting challenges. While this might seem artificial and forced at first, the more you work to rephrase things, the easier it will be to find a more positive spin.
How many times have you talked about ‘having’ to do something. This alone has a negative connotation, as though you’re being forced into something you don’t want to do. Instead trying to drop the word ‘have’ in this context, and try inserting ‘get’ instead. You don’t have to do a presentation by Friday. You get to do one. Hear the difference? This is how you change a task into an opportunity.
Sure, disasters are going to happen. Not everything you attempt is going to turn out exactly the way you’d like it to. Rather than focus on the disaster, try changing your focus. It might be time to shift to a slightly different method or goal.
It’s so hard to be positive when you’re absolutely exhausted and feeling like you’re in over your head. Sometimes the best way to cultivate better self-talk is to cut yourself some slack and take a break. Things will look brighter when you can come back refreshed.
Being positive should never be about closing your eyes to tragedy or injustice. Bad things are going to happen in the world. But someone with a positive attitude will be able to look beyond the tragedy to the next step. Positivity finds solutions where others only see problems. Here is the birth of activism and change.

People sometimes feel that they have no hope. They find themselves in dire situations and believe they're never going to recover. For instance, a person may be born with an issue that sets up barriers right from the start. Another scenario is people who experience trauma.
These situations are never comfortable, and it may be understandable why people feel there is no hope. However, there are several instances of people who overcame dire circumstances and thrived in the process. One example is Helen Keller. At the age of 11, she lost both her sight and hearing due to complications of a disease. With the help of her live-in teacher, Anne Sullivan, Keller went to college and became a prolific author and activist. She has set up schools for people who are blind and deaf.
While you may have heard of Helen Keller, have you ever heard of Nick Vujicic? Nick was born without arms and legs. He is now a motivational speaker and evangelist. You can see plenty of videos of him doing activities better than people who have all their limbs. He simply refuses to let a lack of limbs get in his way.
If you remember Christopher Reeves, who was an American actor famous for playing Superman in the 1990s series of movies. He developed quadriplegia after a horse riding incident. Shortly after the incident, he used his fame to help others who experience similar fates.
There are plenty of other examples of people who rose above their disabilities. It is a source of inspiration and motivation to others who feel helpless. These are all examples of people who would be likely to give up based on their circumstances but refused to do so. Their situations were in no way easy to deal with, and they all had long journeys to rise above their situations. They not only did it but excelled at it.
Perhaps there is someone in your life who is facing a particularly difficult situation. You can help them by showing the inspiration of the people mentioned in this article. Even people who are not facing dire situations can get motivated by these great people.
For instance, if you are facing a problem, think about what these people had to go through to give yourself some perspective. It will help motivate you to look for a solution. You shouldn’t look at it as reveling in their misery. You are instead, celebrating their lives and their ability to overcome the adversities they faced.
