According to the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (New 8th Edition), Success is the #fact that someone achieves something that he/she wants and have been trying to do or get; becoming rich and famous or getting a high social position. However, the actual #Fact is that Success is the exact definition that you give to it. You must define your own success!
WordWeb on the other hand defines ‘Success’ as an event that accomplishes its purpose. In other words, achieving one’s purpose is Success. What this means is that there must be a purpose to be achieved before success can be attained. Goals, meanwhile, is a state of affairs that a plan is intended to achieve and that (when achieved) terminates behavior intended to achieve it. They are set out plans to be achieved; fractions of your purpose.
Dr. Mike Murdock asserts that a goal is a dream with a deadline date. Remember that for your goals to lead to success, they must be SMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Bound. Today is the day that you make the decision to set goals that will lead you to outstanding success in your life, family, career and all other endeavors. Let your dreams be bigger than your fears; your actions louder than your words and your faith stronger than your feelings.
So, wake up, smell the coffee and define your success!
