Hello Once Again Readers,
Me showing off my book of Successes
I just wanted to reflect on success as a whole and what it means to be successful.
How to be successful can be a difficult thing to explain... especially en masse. The notion that success is relative is perplexing... but something that I hold to be true.
A college professor stands in front of her pupils and preaches a curriculum. She states that in order to be successful one must get educated, invest in yourself, and strive for a better job. The epitome of the triangular hierarchy in modern corporations today.
A wise and loving mother bends down to kiss her offspring. The child rejoices but his facial expression changes to a moot. “Mom am I loser?” “No! Of course not honey! Just be yourself and you'll always be successful.”. Success being defined as individuality is certainly plausible.
RGR follows his goals despite how much Failure. To try is to succeed (as the old proverb pronounces)... so RGR is succeeding year and year even though he is failing. Wait.. what? Attempting, just to try in pursuit of perseverance is an hand-me-down definition of success.
Let me tell you... everyone will tell you how to be successful and most likely no one will be correct. Only you will know when you're successful... personally I judge my success on my happiness. When I am happy, I am succeeding and the opposite holds true.
So whatever it may be, I hope all of you succeed in your endeavors, domestic (eRep) and foreign (RL).
