Success is being able to spend your life doing what you want to do. That’s it.
And, because what you want to do is not exactly the same as what others want to do, success is entirely subjective.
Success is like happiness. Other people’s subjective feelings or definitions of happiness cannot make you happy. Other people’s definitions of success cannot make you successful. It’s deeply personal and unique.
Which means that, actually finding out what you really want to do may be the harder part.
It’s also worth noting that, if what it takes for you to feel successful is harder, then it will be harder for you to be successful. This is neither good nor bad – it just is.
