Achieving “Ultimate Success” In Life


It is very fulfilling and satisfactory to achieve success in whatever project we undertake in life. The feeling is even more awesome if you have once failed and have then had the guts to rise out of failure to achieve the success you have always wanted.

The ultimate wonderment of success is never seen in the accomplished output but resides deep in our hearts. Achieving success to some of us is to portray to others how thriving we are when it comes to whatever project we are working on but success goes beyond being seen as an accomplisher among your peers or certain group of persons.

Our want for success and greatness always leads us into chasing projects which we envisage as rewarding, thereby neglecting the imperative elements of our livelihood “Love, Belief & Passion”.

Success would have a more meaningful structure if it is not the sole reason why we embark on projects. Achieving success with any work done is satisfying, but it becomes “ultimate” when it naturally comes out of us doing what we love and believe in.

Many of us are successful with our jobs, holding the ultimate positions within our fields. This sounds like an absolute success and accomplishment, yet these achievements do not hold within our own hearts. Our hearts still feel empty since we have not achieved the ultimate success we desire.

Our inability to obtain the ultimate success we yearn despite our accomplishments is entrenched in our lack of passion, love and belief in what we are achieving or have achieved success within.

The above is what George Burns acknowledged in his words “I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate”.

As we strive to become the successful person we dream of in life, our passions, beliefs and love should be the fundamental guide to whatever we embark on.

Though we always want success as human beings, we should not aim for that in our endeavours, as David Frost said “….we should do what we love and believe in and then success will come naturally”. Ask yourself if you believe in what you doing, if you naturally have the passion for what you doing or if you love what you doing?

It is when we harvest success out of doing what we love and believe in that we will achieve the “ultimate success” we howl for, the success that goes beyond being a mere achiever, the one that would fill the success vacuum in our own hearts and proudly reside there forever.  Gird up your loins and chase what you believe in and love, and success will naturally follow your passion.
