  • 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 require 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 every day.

  • 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.
