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!

PS4 VS. PS3

February 15, 2017

When I purchased my PS4 a while back, I was a bit concerned that now my PS3 would remain untouched until I decided to either sell it, or until it collected enough dust to never work again. However, I have been wrong. In the past month, I think I have put in more time on my PS3 than I have on my PS4

That's why i love the entire line of products that Dollar Shav…

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…
