How we define success will determine how we feel about our selves, how we feel about others and will determine the thoughts we have and the actions we take. Before becoming a teacher, I thought that success looked liked a high rise apartment, a german car and palm trees. Those thoughts were all challenged and changed when I got into education and mean’t many people who have influenced hundreds and even thousands of young people for the better. And needless to say, none of them had a penthouse, a BMW or a vacation home.
So my question for you is (and I have a couple):
How do you define success? Is it by what you have gained or what you have given? Is it by how you will remembered? Is it by what you have been able to build? Does health and love play a role in how successful we are? Does living a life that excites us exist on the scale of success? Where does pride exist in success? These are some questions to ask yourself when thinking about success.
