When Success Isn't


Lately, I have been contemplating the concept of success - how it is defined and how it influences our perception of others who attain it. Sometimes, our perception of someone's success can limit our willingness to engage with them. We may create stories about them being too expensive or too busy, or we may feel they are out of our league, like a first crush when we were young. It's essential to examine these perceptions and not let them restrict our opportunities for growth and prosperity.


My interest in this topic was triggered by recent conversations with people who made remarks about my apparent achievements based on my social media activity. I find it intriguing because I only showcase my everyday routine and profession, which may not always come with financial stability, yet it gives me a sense of satisfaction. Although I may not be affluent regarding finances, I am wealthy in spirit and emotions.


Perceptions

In today's fast-paced world, social media presents a perception of success that is difficult to ignore. We see countless posts displaying seemingly perfect lives, extravagant vacations, and impressive accomplishments. It's natural to compare ourselves to these individuals and feel inadequate.


However, it's important to remember that social media is often a façade far from the reality of everyday life. People tend to carefully edit and filter their photos and videos to create an ideal image. Success is a deeply personal concept that can differ significantly from one person to another.


For example, some people may associate success with material wealth, finding inspiration in those who own luxurious houses and drive flashy cars. In contrast, others may value success through solid relationships and a close-knit support system, considering genuine connections as the accurate measure of achievement.


Defining success on your terms and focusing on what truly matters to you is essential. Constant comparison to others will only lead to dissatisfaction. Instead, concentrate on your unique goals and accomplishments, taking pride in your journey.


Success is subjective, and everyone has a unique definition of it. Although society equates success with material possessions, success can take many forms.
