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!

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 played the story mode so far which has been really interesting because we are getting to see different parts of the world and individual stories of characters involved in World War 1. This is a direction I've wanted to see them go in for a while. Nothing against Call of Duty, but with all of the futuristic and overly excessive features and gadgets at one's disposal, it takes away from (in my opinion) the fun factor. All one of these games need in order to be great is familiar playability, enriched graphic content and a compelling backstory with memorable, relatable characters. I've never been great at multiplayer mode, because i don't have time to spend hours a day practicing, but i am looking forward to seeing what maps will be available and how different it will be for players with stripped down, flair free weaponry at their disposal. Who knows? Maybe it will finally even up the odds in my favor. More content to come. Take care and happy blogging!
