Success is not
just about having...
It's Deeper than that!
Success is Relative!
We all have our own vision / definition of what success means to us personally.
So, the question first comes down to…
What do you define as Success?
“Life is a Journey”
I would like to add to that cliché...
If "Life is a journey", filled with its Ups and Downs / Successes and Failures, that would mean
We are continually evolving, changing and (hopefully) growing
The questions then become:
Have you attained everything you will ever attain?
Have you achieved everything that you hoped to achieve?
Have you traveled everywhere you have wanted to visit?
Have you finished everything you wanted to complete?
Have you met everyone you would have liked to?
I’m willing to bet that your answer to most of these questions is a BIG“No”!
(Knowledge +Awareness) + Action = Wisdom
No matter how much you...
Achieve, Accomplish, and Acquire
...there's always MORE to learn!
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.”
- Winston Churchill
Why does all this matter?
This matters because, far too many people put off what really matters to them, in pursuit of a set goal, they’ll worry about the things that really matter to them once they reach their set destination.
If life is a journey, (and I believe it is) we need to remember:
Enjoy the moments along the way
Move toward what matter to you
Know what success is to you; personally
Below are different forms of Success

“Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.”
- Theodore Isaac Rubin
I’ve made plenty of mistakes in my life on my way to my version of Success.
I am thankful for the ability to get up in the morning with a chance to gain more knowledge and learn more as I attain more ‘Success’.
As long as I am still Growing, Learning and Transforming into more of who I want to be, I am Successful!
May we ALL continue to Fail Forward in our own unique way!
