What if:

Success is not about being rich, But about process of becoming of rich.

Success is not about being happy, But about process of becoming happy.

Success is not about being at top, But about process of reaching to the top.

Success is not about becoming the calm and compose person, But about process of becoming calm and compose.

💡 What if stop defining Success in terms of money or fame and not even happiness. What if we define success by the quality of person we are becoming?

This will mean success is not about being but about becoming.

The journey towards becoming the best version of ourselves encompasses personal growth, self-awareness, empathy, and meaningful relationships. Success can be measured by how much we positively impact ourselves and those around us, as well as how much we contribute to the greater good of society.

Changing your definition of success from a state of acquiring to process of acquiring, will change your life. Success is no longer an ultimate target that, once achieved, will make you successful and eventually happy.

Success will now become the effort you are putting in, processes you are placing in your daily life which is taking you to a direction you want to go in.

You can start being happy today once you begin the process towards your goal.

Remember if any success or journey to success makes you a worse person, stresses you, sour your relationships, gives frustration or make you a bitter person (parent, husband, wife, son, daughter, whatever), it’s not success. No matter how much money you will make or famous will become, it’s not success.
