Keys to Success

Success – It’s All Relative

There are an infinite number of:

“How to Succeed”
“What it Means to be a Success”
“10 and/or 20 Ways To Become a Success”

-type articles.

How is this different? What separates this “success list” from the others is that I am exploring relativity. How does success relate specifically to your life?

What Success Means to You

Generally, most success articles begin with its definition. If we perused the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, we would find that success (according to them) means:

a) the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame; and/or

Do You Need to be Normal to be Happy?

I remember a popular bumper sticker that read “Why Be Normal?” It is a good question. It seems that as human beings we strive for “normalcy” – if by normal we mean conformity. There has to be some level that a society defines as “Normal” – or we run the risk of total anarchy.

What Really Makes You Happy and Can Anyone Find Happiness?

To be sure happiness is elusive – there are those who might even say it is an illusion. How does a person gauge happiness?

Don' t Quit Poem(Photo: SantiMB)

Don’t Quit


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow;
You may succeed with another blow.
