How does one define success? Some say that success is in the eye of the beholder. The obvious equivalent for most people is measured in dollars. For others, family time or travel might measure success. Each of these are important; however, it is the balance between them that is the true success.
We need to take into consideration the importance of flexibility. According to Merriam-Webster, one of the definitions of flexibility is the quality of bending easily without breaking. This definition speaks for itself and can be easily applied to multiple instances. In life, to achieve this juggling act, we must be willing to bend.
It is often insinuated that you cannot have one type of success without sacrificing another. True success is a combination of multiple aspects. What is success to you? Is it genuine success without encompassing all the experiences of family, travel and career? What is wealth without making time for yourself? Sometimes the most successful and wealthiest people are the unhappiest. I know that without my family, my life would not be fulfilled. Make sure that you see and experience as much as
you can. Do not wait until it’s too late.
Where will you find success? Ponder on the word success and what it means to you. We hope each of our readers find success. Keep an open mind and explore all the aspects of “success”. Make time for yourself, family, travel, and friends; all the while having a successful career. Live your life to the
fullest, and do not miss out on the joys of living.
