“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” – Albert Einstein.
Life gives you many choices. Whatever you decide on, you will become. Your decisions develop your character; they make who you are, what you care about. Based on them, you will influence other people, and your own family. Your decisions will develop and improve their lives, or destroy them. Your choice. To help with your choices, you have to find the why to live, and then figure out the how. Why influences your decisions, everyday. The How will work according to the Why. You can focus on the success of gaining monetary items, fame, the prestige position, but those are materialistic. They will come and go without notice. No feelings attached to them. Those can be replaced. You can be replaced. Those are the unsteady ground: a simple shake, and it will tip and fall. Inanimate goals do not bring any happiness or success, since they are void of any feelings. You gave the emotions and attach to them, but not reciprocal.
To have an everlasting success, and happiness; focus on the value that you will give to other people, and your family. Those can never be taken away, no matter how hard people will want to tip it. Human emotions cannot be broken. They will last forever. They will live in the memory of others. Those are the success that you want to reach. No money in the world can replace the value that you place upon this world, and how you change other people’s life. Live your life with the priceless values you give. Give more than what you receive, and you will experience true happiness. Everlasting success. How do you define success? What do you value the most?
