I can’t remember exactly what quote it was that inspired my thought. Come to think of it though, upon searching through images on my phone, it may have been this one:
“The integral part of being a star is having the will to win. All the champions have it.” – Betty Cuthbert.
The thought came to me so clearly, I knew instantly it was true. I shared my musings with Hubbie that night.
What do all successful people have in common? They never gave up.*
It is so simple. Define successful, you say. Well, my definition of success comes from a state of achieving that what you want. Success then, comes from not giving up, from perseverance, from having the drive to keep going NO MATTER WHAT. No matter what the people say, no matter what society says, no matter what odds or obstacles are thrown in your direction. Despite everything, choosing to go forward and pursue your dreams, despite everything, and everyone.
To live life the way you want to, I also consider, success.
What do you define as your success? How far will you go to get it?
The next question would naturally be, how important it is to you…
