I keep asking myself this question – am I successful? Over the last two decades (ignoring my infancy and primary school days because life then was just happy for me), there has been too many times when I have pondered on this matter. I have probably compared myself and my achievements, endlessly with others and ended up basically quite unhappy.
As a small business owner, I wonder whether I should call myself successful yet! Some businesses have spent years to be successful and I am less than a year old. There is definitely room for improvement in the balance sheet of my company.
I realise, that success is all about how we define it (and we often confuse it with happiness). We will all be successful eventually by working hard – summed up nicely in the following.
