3 Common Myths About Success

What is successful for one person is not to another person.
I think we can all agree that the majority of people think being rich is success. Here are some common myths…


1st Common myth-Success means a perfect life

When you reach your goals, getting promoted at work or starting your own business,it does not ensure happiness. We have to remember work is only a part of life so we cannot expect to get the perfect life, with just one piece of the puzzle.

 “There is no such thing as a perfect life” appearances can be deceiving. Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes. 

 Do not just focus on work and expect happiness, focus on things you enjoy, and develop a life outside work.

2nd Common myth- Hard work equals success

 Wrong. Yes hard work is very crucial if you want to get anywhere in life but it is not all you need to be successful. Some people get lucky, they end up at the right place at the right time. This does not happen to everyone, some people will work hard and some won’t.  

I think you get the drift success is not based solely on the hard work. Continue to work hard but do keep that in mind.

3rd Common myth- Success means over working

To some people think success may be working all the time and for others success might be doing what they love. 

The mistake that some of us make is that we measure our own success by other people’s standards.

Everyone’s idea of success is different, so do what brings you happiness. Life is too short. You cannot generalise success, success can be many things.

 Success to me is happiness and feeling content in every area of my life. What is your definition of success?
