Why not to strive for success

Why Not to Strive for Success

 

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

This is great advice to anyone trying to develop his or her own law practice. Many people focus on milestones, such as a high salary or an expensive lifestyle, to define success.

Physical milestones may mark your current success, but as many people have learned in the past few years, a six-figure salary or a new home not last forever and is not an indicator of expertise or knowledge. In other words, success marked by physical indicators may show off your current status, but personal value is something that can’t be taken away.

Curiosity helps to fuel our imagination. When we ask questions of others, we can find out important information to help us solve problems, open new doors and form connections. When we ask questions of ourselves, we can shake up our beliefs, reveal our innermost desires and make positive change

If you have a dream, you’ll be faced with obstacles but by staying with problems longer, as Einstein says, can mean the difference between failure and success. Some ways to begin practicing perseverance is by committing to your dream, keeping a positive attitude, staying focused on what you want every day and bouncing back from adversity.

We can miss the pleasures of the present by becoming too preoccupied with the past and/or future. Reminding ourselves daily to be present will bring us more peace and joy as well as provide us with a greater appreciation for life.

To become an expert at something, learn all you can about that subject, study other’s successes and then aim to do it better than them. The stronger your commitment and passion is to your endeavor, the greater your resolve will be to succeed.

If you have a job that is unfulfilling or that is frustrating on some level, think about what you can do to change the situation. Sometimes a new perspective on the same situation is all it takes to open one’s eyes to what’s possible. The first step is to recognize the dissatisfaction and then take a single action towards satisfaction.
