There Is No Such Thing As Failure When You're Aiming For Succes.
This week's prompt topic is Success. I don't have a particular definition for this since this is a broad topic to discuss. Honestly, I don't have a specific definition in mind to elaborate on this. As I read other entries for this topic on PromptlyJonica Community, it just influenced my mind more and my thoughts become more scattered like I'm searching it in a vast void.
Please bear with me as I search those thoughts in the messed-up universe inside my head. As I said, I can't certainly define this topic in a sensical manner. I decided to just define this on my understanding.
Do you know, that the moment we are born in this world, we are already successful?
Yes, we are!
The moment we came out of our mother's womb and let out our first cry for the world to hear, we are already successful. Being able to breathe, being able to see skies of the heavens, being able to step on the earth, and being able to feel the wonders of life is a great success itself because we are given a chance by God to experience all of this. However, some people don't appreciate this unfamiliar perspective of success.
They thought that success can only be attained if you have money, power, and prestige. They focused too much on the materialistic and influential side of it. They can only define it if they see the results on a bigger scale.
These kinds of people only measure their success if they can have these designer bags, clothes, and shoes. They will only acknowledge it if they have the largest diamonds and the purest gold hanging in their bodies to be shown off to their envious audiences. They will only celebrate their success if they have mansions to host a party. They will be too happy to show off their coolest, fastest, branded, and most expensive car, then treat it like their trophies.
Some people only know the meaning of success if they can have such good businesses. They can only be considered successful if they can sit in the highest seats at the tallest company buildings. They call it a success if they earn millions every month. For some people, that is their kind of success and their wealth symbolizes it.
I don't mean to say that havings these things is bad. It's actually good to have those. I just mean to say that your success can't only be measured by those fancy things.
Success is all about the achievements that you gained from your hard work. Whatever the outcome is, whether it is an ill success or an outstanding success. Anything that is a fruit of our labor is a success.
Be it you just finish cleaning your house. You finish your homework. You got a new job. You got good grades. You graduated. You win from your mobile games. Even if you fooled your dear friend or you lose from the lottery. Every little thing or huge event that happens to you, may it failed or succeeded, it still counts as a success.
Like when I finish writing this article wherein the standpoints are messed up and don't have a specific direction, I would still consider this as a success if I finished publishing this. But before I end this kind of laid-back article, let me drop these inspirational quotes from Abdul Kalam.
These quotes serve as my inspiration when my job was still a Field Representative in a marketing company. I often read this quote before proceeding to train or setting off to the field so I can be motivated and be productive. My job there isn't simple and it only depends on our skills if we can earn more since it's a commission-based kind of job. It depends on our motivation and determination if we can achieve our goals every day. Our success relies on our efforts and accomplishments.
May it also be your inspiration to continue chasing your goals and dreams in life. Don't ever give up and don't ever think that you're a failure. There's no such thing as failure for those people who are determined to reach their goals.
The rain is heavy and persistent from the other day until tonight. Bring your umbrellas and don't get soaked from the rain everyone. It's the start of flu season now. Stay healthy, stay safe, and God bless us all!
