I do not claim to know some esoteric, grandeur and out-of-this-world meaning of life, but I do know what life means for successful people in this world. Losers have no meaning in life and that’s the honest-to-god truth. Winners on the other hand don’t have, but rather they create a meaning for their lives. Have you ever met a highly successful person who did not have a passion in life or had a lack of direction in his or her life? I’ve never met such a person!
I’ll be rational here and tell you that success is different for many people, but I’m writing this blog post with my distinct definition of success in mind. Success is simply doing what you love to be wealthy. Wealthy means generating enough revenue to support yourself. I don’t use the term rich a lot because rich has no exact definition and the word is extremely vague. Even a janitor can be wealthy! If the janitor loves his or her job and the job supports him or her well, then by my definition of success the janitor is successful! Then there’s abundance, those who emphasize and embrace the four things that I’m about to cover in this blog post are abundant in life. In others words, I gauge the value of my life by success, wealth, and abundance. Please don’t let me confuse you because I tend to have that effect on people and I hate it.
For the successful men and women of this world, we know where we want our lives to go because we know what we want in life. The unsuccessful man typically drifts in indefiniteness of purpose as Napoleon Hill puts it. This doesn’t mean a person with indefiniteness of purpose cannot become successful because they can, but the unsuccessful man’s success is often short-lived because it wasn’t built upon passion, purpose, and hard work. Anyway, enough of my babbling, let’s explore the four aspects of the meaning of life for successful people!
- Health – Health is my first priority in life because there is no point in attempting to build up a life of success, wealth, and abundance if you’re not healthy enough to enjoy the fruits of your labor of love. If you want to be around to experience your manifestations, then health is everything. This is why I eat healthy meals most of the time and this is also the very reason as to why I exercise for at least two hours a day when I’m not participating in a sport. I know people who have made it perfectly okay in their minds to eat shitty, unhealthy foods, live a sedentary lifestyle, and treat their bodies very poorly by consuming alcohol, tobacco, and other pointless things that they perceive to be luxuries. Treating your body poorly is not okay if you want the best experience life has to offer. There is no justification whatsoever for causing yourself to be unhealthy! Whenever you have a choice to choose healthy or not healthy (unlike many people suffering from illnesses that are beyond their control), then please choose healthy like any one of us successful, smartasses would!
- Fun — I understand that everything in life cannot be fun, but if you’re not having fun often then you’re not living life right. Fun can be anything from enjoying someone’s company, creating humor, watching your favorite TV or Web show, etc. It’s a big notion in society that as you get older, then you should not have fun and you should be primarily focused on not-so-fun adult things when that’s not true at all. Fun is for everyone! I don’t care if you’re eight, 38, 68, or 98, fun is for everyone! Everyone who wants to have fun should be able to have fun! Fun is one of our many innate pleasures of life and we should embrace fun, not limit it to children only.
- Achievements — Another great aspects of life are achievements. All successful people have something that they’re extremely proud of that they can show you. Those who are truly successful do not like to be idle, but they like to always be looking for things that they can achieve. The successful person doesn’t achieve a few things then end his journey of success there because the successful person knows that the bread and butter of being a successful person is to always be looking for that next achievement!
- Good Relationships – Having good relationships is also another aspect of being a successful person because a huge part of being successful is to be good with people. Forming good relationships is as easy contributing and being good to others, so I won’t go into much detail about forming good relationships. Just remember that to be a successful person you have to be good with people!
