How do we define success? Accolades? Parties in your honor? Awards?
Does success always have to be fancy? Have you wondered about it? Has it always plagued you how to find yourself in a decent position among those who make a show of success and sing tirades of how they did it?
And have you ever wondered if it counts how many and what sort of efforts you made to make success kiss your feet? Well, one thing, success is different for all. Another thing, different people have different ways to find it. Some try everything they can, some find a sturdy way of progressing and then stick to it. Human population growth statistic tells us how dissatisfied human of all nations, classes and races are with their lives. Looking for grand success with complex means need not really bring in satisfaction.
I still recall a practice from my childhood days. My brother and I used to get to rent a video game system if we were good as kids. Consequently, we always ended up fighting. We would get a game like “Street Fighter” or “Mortal Combat”, where we would have to compete against each other. My brother would try to use as many buttons, and make as many different moves as possible to get my guy. I would find one thing, one button, and just keep pushing it, just keep doing the one thing that worked. For me, it worked almost every time. He would yell, he would fluster, and get so mad. “That’s cheating!”, “That’s not fair!”, “You can’t do that!” He had all kinds of reasons why me winning with one move was not a real win at all.
But it was a win, after all. A win is a win. And, doing something simple, over and over that works, actually WORKS! Success doesn’t have to be fancy; it doesn’t have to be complicated either. If you are still ill at ease thinking how to find yourself that magic bean which grows a stock leading to treasure, think again. May be you just need to do your daily job well to do well in life.
Do what works; do it well; repeat.
Don’t over think; don’t over act or react.
This applies to everything in life. If you have a side-business that is helping pay off debt, but it is not exciting, keep doing it. It will work and pay off. Don’t lose small avenues of improvement in search of something grand.
If you have a diet that is working but is bland and uneventful, keep going.
The secret that economists keep looking for to attain holistic human population growth may be just this bit – figuring out what works for you. The greatest treasure in life is just beyond the dry, barren deserts. The gold is within the common soil. Don’t be fancy, just be consistent.
Find what works.
