What do you mean by success and why is it important? - 

Not you or me but everyone wonders how to be successful in life? And just as important, even though many are chasing success how come so few find it?


What is Success?

Success is defined differently by many people and could be anything as - financial, spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, philanthropic, communal or familial. 


Success is a continuous journey

Richard St. John reminds us in one of his Ted talk session that success is not a one-way street, but a constant journey. He uses the story of his business' rise and fall to illustrate a valuable lesson -- when we stop trying, we fail.

One of the most important and respected motivational speaker late Zig Ziglar defines it as-

I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can't truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.

 - Zig Ziglar


Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.

- Albert Einstein

My favourite definition of success is :

Success is a favourable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavours; the accomplishment of one's goals.

Every human being is different and they perceive success differently. We all plan for something and set some goals in life. If we are reaching to those milestones and achieving our goals, it makes us successful. 

Why is it important?

Success  drives us forward, it is something we all seek or aspire to achieve and it can be quite distressing sometime if fail. Success is incredibly important to each of us, but why is it so important?

  • Success provides confidence, security,
  • It helps in building a sense of well-being
  • the ability to contribute at a greater level
  • Gives a reason to dream, hope and lead 


Success is mostly outcome of your preparation, continuous effort  over a period of time, in some cases your luck. But one thing is certain that success is a common fuel of humanity built on countless  hours given by scientist on experiments, entrepreneurs trying new idea innovating something new. 


Finally, Success was as important was in past as it’s in present and it will be as important we could see in future as well.
