#BlogFlash2012: What Is Success?






Blog Flash 2012
"Success"

What is success? Is it being famous, having lots of money and a large home? Or is it the tiny goals we all have that we want to achieve? Fame and fortune comes and goes. Right now everyone is focused on the Olympics. I can guarantee we will all remember these wonderful athletes until something else catches our eye. How does one find success when fame only last 15 minutes in the public’s eye? If you only focus on fame and fortune then you truly are missing the bigger picture. For materialistic success is only short lived but achieving you personal goals will last a lifetime.

  1. So true! I can only imagine the feeling those athletes must get though as they perform at their best. For many of them, just to be there is a success even though they have no real shot at winning a medal.

    1. So true. They all worked very hard to get where they are today. Nothing is an instant success. It takes years of building up a following or developing skills in order to achieve success in whatever you do.

  2. This is very true! I have loved the responses today. They have been a great reminder that success isn't about material possessions for most people, but about things which are beyond value, such as love, family, and friendship.

    1. I think in the society we live in it's sometimes hard to remember this. We live in such a materialistic world that tells us the more money and fame you have the more successful you are. I think its a sad lesson we teach our youth.
