THE KEY TO SUCCESS

May 26, 2017

"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful." -Albert Schweitzer

     I am no expert on success. In fact, I know very little about the subject. Success has different meanings to different people. To some, it means vast amounts of wealth. I'm sure a large number of people share this belief and the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a successful person is someone that makes a substantial amount of cash. However, this is only one example. The dictionary definition of success is: the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. So if one's aim or purpose is to obtain a large income and they achieved such, then one would be considered successful.

     I feel that a vast majority of people, however, look towards self-accomplishments and happiness in order to consider themselves successful. I for example, love to record voiceovers. I am not at a point where I can do that full time, but once I reach that point where I can solely acquire an income doing voiceovers for a living, I would then consider myself a success. I would be happy doing what I love, while having the freedom to travel and visit my family and be my own boss. "Freedom" is the key word here.

    It is funny how the "American Dream" has evolved over time. Originally it was considered to be an American social ideal that stresses egalitarianism and especially material prosperity.(https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/American%20dream). But the modern day individual identifies with the prospect of doing what they are truly passionate about for a living; for to them.....true happiness is the real definition of success. The absence of stress, anxiety, pain and conflict weigh more to some than all the money in the world. Although some feel that all the money in the world would eliminate stress, anxiety, pain and conflict. Or at least they could buy their way out of such detriments. Everything does come with a price though.

So what does success mean to you? I would love to get some feedback. Please feel free to comment below and as always, thanks for reading!

DOLLAR SHAVE CLUB

November 28, 2016

This will be short and sweet, but i must say that i have an obsession with Dollar Shave Club. I used to use other razors that you could buy in the store and not only were they always way too expensive, but they usually irritated my skin. That's why i love the entire line of products that Dollar Shav…

BATTLEFIELD 1

November 9, 2016

The eagerly anticipated Battlefield 1 has been in my possession for about 3 weeks now and I've got to hand it to Dice. Not only do they stay true to what makes the Battlefield series great, but they took it to a whole new level using the graphics processing power of the Playstation 4. I've only play…

THE FLASH SEASON 2

November 9, 2016

So i noticed I've been watching a lot more TV since i got rid of my cable subscription. My initial decision was due to the crazy overpriced "bundle package" which was designed to save me money. In essence, it's simply a feeble attempt at getting people to spend more money on products or services the…
