Looking for society’s approval? Check those three boxes, or chase until you can check those three boxes and the society will term you as successful.
• How do you define success?
• Who has the right to decide if someone is successful or not?
• Does getting another person’s approval necessary to term yourself successful?
Having read case studies on various entrepreneurs, listening to their podcasts, read their books, watched their interviews and the majority of them describe happiness as success.
It’s how you determine success for yourself that will decide how happy you are.
If you live a healthy life, with people around you whom you love and care for, if you adore your work, then you’re the most successful person you know.
Graduated in May 2015. Zazz Media started in December 2015. What happened in those six months?
The entrepreneurial spirit always existed within me. I knew; eventually, I’d build something – although, I didn’t possess the answers for the what, when and how.
Coming from our stressful education system, teaching us all but the same principles, those six tension-free months was a blessing! No responsibilities, no plans, no routine! Nothing valuable happened during that period. Although, in hindsight, I’m happy I took that decision because that brought me to where I am today!
Proceeding down this path gave me the push, the energy to accomplish something. That realisation was important!
It’s up to you, whether you’d like to take a break or not. However, remember this – If you can take a break, do it for yourself. Please don’t rush into decisions, because you got pressured into it. When that happens, you don’t make choices out of happiness.
We live a simple life, and anything beyond black and white is luxury. Necessary luxury or not, it’s up to you.
Metaphorically speaking, every colour you add to your life is luxury. Whether you add that colour for yourself or to show it to others is up to you!
The sooner we realise our decision-making process, the better for us! Do we want to win or do we want to show others that we have “won”? #DontKeepUpWithTheJoneses
