I believe that most people are desperately unhappy on some level. I don’t mean everyone. Some find happiness, but I believe that most do not.
There are probably many reasons why this happens. When we can’t overcome a faulty belief system and have false beliefs about ourselves, we may think that we don’t deserve to be happy. I believe that we all deserve to be happy. In order to be happy, though, it means having the right beliefs, especially about ourselves. High self-esteem is important to achieving what we want in life.
What is Success Really?
Planet of Success defines success as follows:
Being successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals. Furthermore, success can be a certain social status that describes a prosperous person that could also have gained fame for its favorable outcome. The dictionary describes success as the following: “attaining wealth, prosperity and/or fame”.
Is this really a good definition, though? To a point, yes, it is. Achieving the things we want in life is important. However, these things only contribute to our happiness. They don’t make us happy. Outside things won’t give us the inside satisfaction that we desire if we truly want to be happy because happiness is a feeling. It’s an internal state.
Happiness comes from the inside. It is an inside state. It is a way we feel regardless of our outside circumstances. When we look to people, places, and things to make us happy, we will always be looking outside ourselves for things to make us happy instead of looking inside ourselves for that feeling of happiness. We hand our control over to others instead of looking inside ourselves for this feeling.
So what is the secret of success really? Success really means a feeling, how we feel about ourselves, our lives, and what truly makes us happy.
What is the Secret to Success in Life?
It starts with a feeling. Feeling happy and successful is only the beginning. It’s not everything. Self-esteem comes from who we believe we are. It comes from inside. Self-confidence comes from what we do. If we want to be all we are, then it’s necessary to take action too.
You start with a belief in yourself. You believe in who you are. Then you take action on what you believe. In order to do that, you must know what you want. In order to do that, you must discover what you desire in life and then take action to achieve it.
