Social Media: Are these really crazy times?

So the other day I was listening to a very good self-development recording.

It offered the best definition of success I’ve ever heard.

Before I share it with you, let me just say I think the definition of success is a very personal thing.  Kind of like your definition of “love.”

Not everyone loves the same way, and just like love… success has different meanings for different people.

I like this definition: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal.”

To me, if you’re moving forward towards something worthy, then you’re successful, because to me success is a journey, not a destination.

Doesn’t matter what the context is… as long as you’re in motion, then you’re making something happen – and for me, this means you’re moving along your journey of success.

But for other people, this is different.  Success is the appearance of money or material things… or some kind of new relationship… or some other visible “fruits” of your labor in a tangible form.

So, everyone’s different.  And that’s cool, too.

The guy who offered up this quote, went on to tell a story about how… after he first shared this definition of success, people sent in comments about it.

One of the comments he got in, was something to the effect of, “Hey, it’s a crazy world out there.  What about the people who make money from selling drugs — how can you consider this a success?”

And of course, the teacher explained that this was a timely comment in today’s world, however the back-end of his definition did say “of a worthy goal.”  And obviously drugs aren’t such a worthy goal, so his explanation was accepted.

Now let me tell you something about this story.

This story actually took place close to 30 years ago.  It comes from an outstanding program I recommend you listen to, called “Lead The Field,” by Earl Nightingale.

And my point is this: the world always has one crisis or another going on.  I have ads and articles that go back in time over 121 years, that reference one economic issue or another… one social blight or terror over another.

That’s just life.  And the reality is — in the big picture of life, most of the time, fortunately — MOST things are running smoothly.  And the periodic pain we may experience from this crisis or that problem… is just a blip on our radar screens, when it comes down to it.

And thank goodness for that, right?

You bet.

All you need to do… is realize that dirty four-letter word, “time,” always makes EVERYTHING… better.

See, the key to life isn’t “winning,” it’s… hanging in there.
