Being young and successful is the thing that we want. We are often hurried, we believe that we must amass as much money/experience since we're young and then we can be even more rich and experienced down the road.
Yes this is very true, you need to start as early as possible, but everyone who only thinks this shallow usually don't allow it to be.
If you think the same as the society think, you will get only what the society usually get
99% on the planet are sleeping through life, they are certainly not really awake, this is exactly why if you ask them a deeper question in life, they're confused, including "what is success to you", their response is probably just money, happiness, etc. however they don't really know what it can be.
Happiness for example. Sure when you've got money, good friends, good job you can be happier, but that everything in life?
If you can't define success, society will define it to suit your needs and you will end up doing similar to everyone else and getting just like everyone else.
You know what 'the same' is right? Get a 'good' degree (whatever which means), get a job, get married, have kids, work hard to put kids through school so they can do the exact same thing as you and the rest of the society, retire, die in mediocrity.
Young and successful is a lot broader than money and relationships
Now i do not mean to say that this ol' corporate world is shit, if it is for you then it's for you, but most people are stuck within their shitty corporate job they do not belong there yet still think they still belong there because they're only raised realizing that it's the only way.
Precisely what should you do to know what's the definition of success?
1. Be open-minded
There are millions of ways to be 'successful', so many people have done it, they followed their heart and located a niche or even invented their particular industry, one example is what I'm doing now, One time i watched a video of a guy explaining how there exists a career for people who share their knowledge for a living, and here I am.
2. Play with it
I would never be able to find to where I am today easily only listened and knew there was clearly an industry like this. Trying things out has been at the heart of my success, I stupidly fell so frequently but I always kept moving. Actually, it's not as simple as point 1, just watching a video, I would not be even remotely interested about watching the recording if I wasn't ready. What's 'ready' mean? It implies, you have gathered experience combined with mindset needed to alternate from one passion to another. I was so focused on bodybuilding, books, as an HR manager, photography, and it all taught me a bit about myself, then when the pieces was formed produce, I felt compelled toward becoming some tips i am now, just like I always do, I aim it, failing so many times as well, and now the actual. The key is taking action congruent for your 'calling'. Don't worry if the feeling isn't strong, for those who have a slight hint of wanting to do something, do it first over a small scale and decide if you want to keep it up.
Forming the puzzle pieces is very important, I never understood why I used to be so passionate about street photography, no other kinds of photography, just street. Travelling the streets in Europe, I still remember I do think I took more than 200 pictures everyday every single day, and I realized given that my desire to take pictures of people on the streets is because I seriously love people. I truly do, many people who are confused about life say that like people, which is good, but they don't understand when I say i LOVE people.
Also and i'm writing this, I just realized something else, when I take street photography, I loved taking candid pictures, and why? Now I realize that it's because I love people's expression when they're just not faking it, they may be just minding their own business and expressing what they truly feel on the inside. Which is the reason I put so much effort into learning, reflecting, teaching about authenticity. Because I'm totally captivated by it! Damn, I enjoy writing!
So which is a good tip right there on how to reflect.. Write about it. Specifically the feelings you had about it.
So, the thing is, the more you're on the journey, not another woman's damn definition of 'success', you'll be more and more clear about what you love, what success would be to you. And the clearer you're, the clearer what action you need to take, the more clarity you've, the more you can put massive effort, and massive effort drives you to your destination faster.
Until the next occasion, buddy!
