The definition in the dictionary for success is “The favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors, the accomplishment of one’s goals, the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.”
Everyone has a different meaning of success and being successful. You may not have a million dollars sitting in your bank account right now but that doesn’t mean you aren’t successful. I’ve started businesses and failed a handful of times. I wouldn’t say I’m unsuccessful but I wouldn’t say I’m to successful either. I’ve learned a lot from all these different businesses and adventures. Just because it’s a failure doesn’t mean it’s unsuccessful.
You learn from your failures and you learn from your mistakes. That’s success right there. You got something out of it. You learned how not do something. Everyone has a different meaning for success and different levels of their meaning. I definitely don’t think I’m at the level I want to be. I also don’t think I’m unsuccessful. You have to keep on trying to move forward no matter the struggle is.
That being said. If you have something you want to do, just do it. A goal, a dream, some sort of curiosity. Go try it! Doesn’t hurt to try something new even if you fail. Hey, you’ll have a better chance of success if you keep trying.
