I am Success…
Success is one of the most fascinating words we ever get acquainted to in our life. Few think it’s certain and for many others, it’s an accident. But is it sure or an accident?
The first reply that comes to my mind is, ‘It’s for sure when I am focused on my purpose and efforts but an accident when I relate it to others’.
Though success is purely a subjective term, societies have made it a relative term - relating it with others. Society at large has evolved to define the result as success or not. Success is getting its meaning from the results; the pre-narrated results. But is its so? If we take the example of any sport - the people standing in first three positions are considered to have succeeded. But what about the other participants? Are they failures? We have made it purely a relative term. And with so many failures, we strive to drive and motivate the people for success. The environment is of failure. For many it happens and for few others it is for sure.
One day in the quest on the above and debating inside, I found an attractive but stressful lady sitting beside me. Taking an opportunity to relieve her from that position, I asked her name. She replied, “I am Success!”
Amazed by it, I asked again, “Really?” Raising her eyebrows, she replied, ”Not again”. I requested her to tell something about her; to tell me about the reasons of her stress. She replied, ”Thank you”. She continued, “I am the present, not any past or future. I am unique for everyone, a personal reason to be happy and joyful. As any other creation of nature, I am being created moment by moment, act by act and keep moving in aligned direction. People have confused me with achievements, the results.”
“But are you not the result only?”
”No. I am in everything, whatever is done to achieve those results; not only the result. If I am taken as result, why not the result of every activity? I am living stress-fully as people are blaming me for the insanity rising in the society.” “I can understand you, Ma’am. Can you please explain how do you see yourself?”
”Thank you for giving me a voice! I am energy, travelling from one completion to another. I am the smallest part of a whole and the complete whole in myself. I am there when you think and start to apply. I am there when you move from one stage to next. I am the choice you made from different alternatives. And this everybody does for any activity. A combination of these activities to the pursuit is achievement.”
“If I summarise Success, you are the ripple effect of energy, enthusiasm and confidence resulting from every action. You are for sure when series of activities fall together in one direction at the right time without comparing others. And for others it’s an accident.”
“WOW! You have understood and simplified it. Please share and spread with others to allow them to live in the present with fulfilment and joy.
I am Success!!!”
