Success: How do you measure up?

"Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand."
–– Bruce Barton

Success is measured in many different ways, some people define personal success as achieving their life goal, example: getting married or becoming rich. However, on their way to achieving these goals they come across a road block and that might stop them from persevering and achieving those goals which they truly want to achieve. I think that failure and success are not directly related and hear me out, I mean that if you fail, it doesn't mean that you cannot succeed.

Failure is just one form of road block on our path to success and often failure is enough for people to throw the towel in and give up. Our various definitions of success also coincide with our various definitions of failure. Some see failure as never achieving your goals while others may see it as giving up on that goal or doubting your ability to achieve it.

Remember: Success is creating what you want the way you want it to be.

A little bit of homework for you:

What do you want to achieve today? What kind of roadblocks may you encounter? How will your persevere through these roadblocks? What will you do if you fail?

You are right, failure is integrant part of success.

Indeed, I think too many people see failure as the final point of defeat when it is really the test of our determination and focus.
