Hello dear March,
I have a few tasks to accomplish, so a success quote might be what I need right now. The weather is a bit grey in Paris but they offered me a chocolate at my favorite café 🙂
So, yes, I want success, you want to know what I mean by it?
I checked it up at the dictionary, here is what I found:
a. the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame
b. the correct or desired result of an attempt
“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed”.
You might object, yes but this is Michael, not you April. I agree, I don’t try to be a world-class basketball player 🙂
As to the third definition of success, a person or thing that succeeds it is my favorite, because it shows how arbitrary these things are: who decides if a person is successful? what if I decide for myself?
I am most successful, the most successful person I have been closely acquainted to, yesss (I don’t think I am as closely acquainted with anybody else). Whose word would be enough to contradict me?
Society? It is very vague. Even people who seem to agree, they might doubt. I might get dressed as a queen and go to a fashionable café. If my way to behave lacks confidence, if I seem to ask forgiveness for my existence, my expensive designer clothes will not be enough even for the anonymous “others”.
So, let’s give ourselves a vote of confidence as successful people! Let’s be the most successful person we are closely connected to in our life!
Why? Because We say so 🙂
