Success(ful)

I like to daydream, do you like to daydream? When you are daydreaming, what is it about?

I daydreamed about  being successful, I CRAVED for SUCCESS in career!

And so I had spent a lot of time thinking of the word SUCCESS !

I looked it up under wikipedia and it said :

  • a level of social status
  • achievement of a goal
  • the opposite of failure
Thinking of these 3 phrases..It made me realize that my FEAR of failing is making me crave for being successful. But again who wants to start on something and fail on it, right? If i fail on what I am doing, that gives people a reason so say : HA ! And that thought had terrified me in a very long time.
HOW EVER how about the journey towards your goal(s), Anna asked me once.
Well, our conclusion is, trying to reach the goal is actually already a step towards success. It is no doubt a lot better than not taking actions and being left with : I should have done that / how would my life be if I….
Also it is important to think of the things you have learned during the journey !
This blog for me is about inspiring people and even though I haven’t got thousands of readers, the few people who say that I have inspired them, simply make me think: YES!! And also what I have learned is that by writing, it gives me a better insight on my own life.
I bought a book by Patti Digh called “Creative is a Verb” and in this book I found a lot of quotes which inspire me to write and being creative.
This one I would like to share with you guys and hope that it will inspire you to take a step.
