“May you soon become successful, wealthy and a proud family”
That line often echoed the parents for their children, including me and maybe you, too. Is it true that to be successful you must have an abundance of treasures that can make the whole family proud? And in order to achieve their hope then we are running for success. Sacrificing ourself, our family, our friends to achieve our goal, sacrificing the chance to enjoy life and the main thing is to sacrifice the whole time which can never be replayed.
Once it is achieved, whether we can enjoy the success we’re looking for, or go after it?
To me, success means two things. Ultimate success is to be yourself. To enjoy my life my way, to be grateful that I can live day by day and accept life with all its pros and cons with a heart that ceaselessly grateful. It’s that simple! Yes! Very simple. But in reality, it is very difficult to apply in our daily lives. We still more often complain than being grateful. When I managed to overcome all this, then I have achieved success.
The second meaning of success is being a giver to anyone who asks something of me.
Being closer to God
Being closer to God is one of the main keys to success. There is no success that falls from the sky for even the simplest one. Submit the purpose and plan our lives to God in prayer because what we have planned is not necessarily the best for us. Therefore pray and seek an excellent means to achieve whatever our life purpose.
A lack of self acceptance is the biggest obstacle in achieving the success we want. Accepting yourself as is with all the advantages and drawbacks enable us to enhance our potential to the fullest. Do not forget to develop capabilities that we already have. Never stop learning.
Being grateful for whatever happens in life is the hardest thing for most people. Usually people would be grateful if they experienced happiness, or any kindness. But being thankful is difficult when we are afflicted. God has a plan could have been better in our lives by providing the accident.The more we are thankful for, it will be the more good we will get. Can you believe it? Try it and see!
Helping people should not matter. We can help anyone with donated labor, attention, advice or just lend a shoulder. Therefore, start by helping those who are around us with sincerity and selflessness.
Make the day we pass through become more meaningful. Whatever the profession and the work we. A day that has passed will never be repeated again. We should use the time we have as best as possible.
