Redefining success

1 year, 8 months ago

We all know here that success is mostly if not completely measured based on wealth and fame. This has been the case for many years. It’s no longer a matter of natural selection, now those at the top of the food chain are those with power and wealth. We’re born into society where we must be in constant motion to try an climb this ridiculously high latter. Not only is becoming more expensive to exist but now we’re faced with having to constantly catch up with whats new in technology. And if choose or simply can’t catch up we’re out of the loop. At least technology has evolved so much that now we are able to stop worrying about survival and deviate focus on this whole other type of survival. We now go into battle with everyone else in the world trying to be the best, be the richest, have the nicest things, have the latest things. Through all these technological devices we network and advertise ourselves so the we can remain in the social loop. I’m not sure if i’m making sense here but what i’m trying to express is that this is happening, and i want people to know that it’s okay to feel the pressure and redefine your idea of success. It doesn’t have to follow those guidelines. You can be the most successful person and live as simply as it can you want. To me success is the ability to find a balance in your life. And grow and become better than you were yesterday. It’s a life long journey but in a way it’s probably why we were put in this earth. To have the human experience.

It’s nice to know that there are other people out there who don’t care about money, fast cars, and big houses. People always give me a strange look when I tell them I’m majoring in English. All they can think about is how I’ll never be “successful.” The fact of the matter is that I may be much more successful than them, even if I don’t make much money.
