In Pursuit of Success



Success. We all have our own definitions of the term, but most people misinterpret what it is, or how it should be. Traditional success can be defined as having an education, a job that pays well, and nice home/marriage. But, it’s not that simple (and neither is life). Which is why it’s important to understand people and their decisions in life. You may think you know someone when you talk to them, but you really don’t. We all have had that moment when we were talking to someone, and thought that they were not really “successful.” It’s something that we have been taught through social conditioning our whole lives. What we have to understand is–that there is no true definition of success, and there shouldn’t be. I’ve met a lot of amazing people over the years, and they’ve all had their own take on success. Since starting this blog, interviewing people on my blog and podcast, I have had a crash course on what it takes to be the best that you can possibly be. Of course you don’t always get what you want or go after, but you’re gonna get pretty damn close if you take action and go for it. Whatever it is that makes you happy or passionate, I strongly recommend that you go after it. I’ve waited to take action on certain things in my life, but that does not define me, nor does it tell my whole story. You will get judged by people in your life on what you do and what you don’t do, but don’t let that discourage you. Develop thick skin and forge ahead. Be relentless and willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goal. It won’t be easy (nothing worthwhile ever is), but you’re gonna find out a lot about yourself in the process, and when you look back at all that you’ve accomplished–you’ll have a greater sense of the person that you’ve become. I’m here to cheer you on and to tell you that it can be done. Good luck in your pursuit of success, and remember to have fun along the way.
