A lot of people in today’s world chase success.
They run around day and night, work 7 days a week, and create a life that they hate just so they reach this ‘Success’.
They hate the work, hate the grind and hate the constant running around, but are still so tunnel-visioned by this idea of ‘Success’ that they keep going anyway!
Some of these people run for months, years or even decades to the point of burnout, depression and intense misery.
The problem is that they invested so much of their energy into this journey to success that they cannot stop running now or else they risk loosing everything they’ve put in.
But also because they understand that if they truly take time to reflect they might realize they have forgotten why they have begun the chase in the first place.
Happiness, Comfort, Money, Luxury, Meaning, Purpose. Those were the things they thought success would bring. Yet a lot of these were sacrificed on their way to reach the success!
Most people never realize this because they never get there, and the ones that do realize it way too late.
When they finally reach success they stop and take a look behind them to see what they have lost and realize that the journey took a toll they never meant to pay.
“I wish everybody could get rich and famous and will have everything they ever dreamed of, so they will know that it’s not the answer.” — Jim Carrey
If you want to become successful, truly successful, there is one thing you must do first: Define Your Success.
You must know the path and the reason for the path and must repeat it so often you never forget it!

Without a goal in mind you will run aimlessly about, hoping to randomly catch that perfect version of success that everybody talks about.
In the process you blind yourself to what is, what you are sacrificing and what you could reach. You are chasing a phantom.
Define your success so that you know what it will look like when you get there and that you do not keep chasing the ideas other people throw at you.

Those that have not reached success do not know what it looks like, and even those that have do not know what will make you feel successful.
That is something only you can do.
If you want to be successful you have to figure out what success means to you and get exactly that. Only then will you actually be successful.
