I know the definition of success, but I can't tell you what it is.
Because it's my definition.
The meaning of success is unique to each and every person.
Some people want sports cars, some people want money, some people want love, some people just want less stress.
There's successful people who work on Wall Street and make lots of money.
There's successful people who live in small remote villages who fish all day long and they are living their dreams.
Most people don't know what their definition of success is.
That's why they have so much uncertainty.
That's why they get caught up in trivial things.
If you haven't thought about it yet, you have to devote an entire day to just sit down and think: "What do I really want out of life?"
It sounds simple, but most people just don't do it.
They don't have the guts to admit what they really want to do and what they really want.
And I mean seriously and realistically listing what you want.
Don't say "I wanna to be rich."
That doesn't mean anything.
Rich could mean earning a ton of money but working 80 hour weeks.
That's probably not actually rich because you're working too damn much.
Rich could mean something completely different.
Like owning a really big comic book collection.
Both people are rich right?
They have a lot of assets?
You're going to have to do some deep soul searching.
You have to try new things.
You have to fail.
You have to meet people who are doing what you want to be doing and ask them what it's really like.
There's a million questions to ask yourself.
The most important question is "What would life be like if I didn't have this dream come true?"
What would life be like if you didn't get that really big comic book collection?
I'm kind of joking, but it's true, you need to think about the results and consequences.
And I'm telling you this because your goals might requires bigger actions than you think.
Do you need to move to another city or even another country to achieve your goals?
Sometimes it matters a lot.
Do you need to quit you job to ultimately be happy?
See, this is why I never believed in asking other people for advice.
Because who can really know what's good for you?
Only you.
Nobody knows how important certain things are to you.
Some people will even reject it.
They'll tell you not to do things, especially if they are radically different.
Sometimes they might be jealous, but the truth is they don't think it's right for them.
Success is serious.
This is what drives you.
This is why you wake up in the morning.
This is why you go to work everyday.
This is important.
That's why you need to take the time to focus and figure out what it means to you.
And just because you've done it once doesn't mean you're done.
You have to reevaluate the meaning of success periodically.
Like every few years.
Because your values will change.
What's your meaning of success going to be like after you finish school?
After you get married?
After you retire?
It's always going to change.
But that's okay.
