Reblogging – as this is registering as published three weeks ago (so it is hard to find). However, the fact it didn’t show up doesn’t mean a fail (I’m staying on theme here!), just more things to learn about wordpress. Anyway – please have a read and I’d love to know your thoughts. Cheers, Helen
I’ve been grappling with the issue of failure for a couple of weeks. I’d now like to flip it and look at success.
Yes, I know! Soon I’m going to write about something completely superficial – I promise – but I feel like I need to wrap up this series with a little exploration on success, succeeding, and being a ‘successful person’.
What do we mean by ‘success’?
Success is the opposite of failure, isn’t it? That’s what we are striving for – to be successful? (and I thought so initially, but after tossing it around in my mind, I’m less sure. At least – without writing this out, I wasn’t clear that I knew what I meant by ‘success’.
- Are we ‘successful’ if we achieve our goals – or is success determined by some other measure, for instance, living against a set of values? Are we the ones to make that call?
