3 Ways Of Defining Success

Of course you want to be successful. Of course you love to have luxury cars, nice mansions, great holidays, designer clothes and tons of cash. But is that really definition of success?


Let’s just  have a look.

According to Oxford Dictionaries: success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

The attainment of fame wealth, or social status.

A person or thing that achieves desired aims, fame, wealth, etc.

How famous people define success?

Winston Churchill (Britains former prime minister),said:” Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm”

“To find and fully live your purpose in life and to leave an enduring legacy of having made a difference in the world”- perscribes success, Ron Cordes ( the founder of Cordes).

Jeremy Young,(CEO Tango),says : Success for me has always  been in providing a great quality of life for my family, for those who work for me and to my community”


Interesting how many people define success. Yet for many people success is making lots of money. “Success says Dhiraj (a bloger), is the reward of hard work, patience which gives you achievement, satisfaction and happiness. Also success meaning, changes time to time, place to place and person to person”

Ways of defining success

1- Setting goals and doing your best.

We all have aims. We work hard to achive them. Failure in process for me is success. You learn and you try again. Every little step towards your goal is a success. As long as you come home and say: I had a good day

2 – Setting a work-life balance

We go to work every day. Providing for ourself and our families. By doing so we define it as success. There is joy when you sit and have a meal with your kids, wife, mum dad. It is success to set a work-life balance . It makes you happy and brings a smile in to your loved ones.

3 – Make a difference

You accomplish your dream by achieving your goals. You create a comfortable life. Make sure every day you try to make a difference in peoples lives.Do as little or as much as you can. That is your legacy. Making a difference in your life, making a difference in peoples you love lives. Making a difference in your community lives


Success can be difined  diffrently from different individuals. A film maker from Israel was asked ones, if she had plans to go to Los Angelos and try to break in Hollywood film industry. Probably not she said, since I cant imagine being that far way from my family. So if for many of us would define as success going to Hollywood for the the Israeli film maker was the opposite one.

Now you tell me how do you define success?

  1. I agree with everything you have said. Probably I feel most successful when I achieve something which leaves me feeling good in the long term, rather than something which is great when it happens, but doesn’t last for long so is kind of empty, if you see what I mean! ‘:)

  2. Success is both intrinsic to what it is you are doing to achieve the desired byproduct/extrinsic perceived success..
    When both can be claimed, life is really successful… As we live a success and not just wait for it..
