Meaning of Success:
Achieving the target which is being thought or created before hand in any way of life, may be termed as “Success”.

Analysis of the word “Success” being compared to the word “Winning”:
Difference with the word “Winning” – “Winning” refers to gaining the medal or reward in a way of life or work with or without any effort or prior planning. It may be by God’s Grace or by Good Luck charm, or incident achievement, or anything..

Everyone likes to get success in anything whatever we do. So, Scope of success and path to Success is what everyone dreamt of for. What is said okay, for a way of life, may not be applicable for other way of living. But, it does help us to make a chart of things to be considered how to get success on what we do.

Essentials of “Success”:
1) Clear objective – Concrete goal which is touchable i.e. which is measurable.

Explanation: – Keeping goals like “Becoming a good person in life” is not a concrete goal, though the goal is indeed good one. It is very difficult to plan and analyse the goodness of an individual or the way to define the word “good”.

But, if one decides to become “a Doctor”, “An Engineer”, “A Lawyer”, “A Businessman”, etc.; he/she will be able to achieve what he/she had wished for i.e. “a good person” side by side, if the individual maintain the personality of the goal effectively. At the same time, becoming “A Doctor” or “An Engineer” does not mean the individual is already a good person; but, if we think things in positive way, we will be achieve what we have dreamt of by keeping concrete targets.

2) Good Health – Health is wealth.

Explanation: – All our thinking will go waste if we are not physically fit enough to get at our wishes. So, along with target of achieving success, there must be proper health & fitness planning so that we are mentally & physically sound to work hard for the goal in mind.

3) Good Support & Environment – Achieving Success in any way of life needs support (may be from friends, family, or others) which may be psychological or may be physical help.

Explanation: – It is rare in this world to be able to do everything required in life by a single individual. If one has to get something, one has to help him/her in some way or the other.

In fact, it is a team effort i.e. achieving the success in an individual’s life via the guides of people & environment in the surrounding. It is expected to see a gentleman out of a gentle family at most.

4) Clarity in understanding of Self – Knowing the internal instincts & the weakness of self.

Explanation: – We keep on learning everyday and we keep on adapting to the situations every time. It is all because of our thinking capability. For achieving success on something we do, we need to get aware of what are really need in the way we wish to do.

Based on the finding of the requirements, we can establish the strong points in our character and the weakness on self that will try to pull us down in the way to success.

5) Punctuality & Strong Determination – Setting a target and trying to achieve via proper step by step planning punctually.

Explanation: – It is well known from the saying that “Rome was not build on a single day”. For achieving success on what we do, we need to be patient enough and follow clear laid out plans punctually.

6) Good Personality – The Personal character in action, in thinking, in behaving.

Explanation: – One needs to develop one’s personality from Day One towards the goal what one wishes to be. It is very difficult to imitate someone else at the last moment. Whatever one learns every single day is what we all accumulate and use them in today’s life.

That is how our personality comes about. It is difficult to change our personality suddenly. Based on the goal and way of life, one needs to develop and learn to develop a matching personality so that there is success in the way of life.

Generalised Steps to “Success“:
1) Finding the target
2) Understanding the requirements and limitations
3) Understanding self and matching the requirements with self
4) Making a process (not just only rigid steps) to achieve the expectations towards the goals
5) Having a Back-up planning in executing the steps in every process
6) Maintaining a feedback or loop back on the steps being executed to analyse the success rate in meeting the targets with respect to planning.

Thus, in fact achieving success is a simple process. It is similar to having a checklist of things to do be done and verifying whether the individual has completed all the requirements.

Lastly, “Success” is all, not just about achieving targets in some way of life. There are lot many in life. Sometimes, it does help us to understand ourselves more, if we do look from the outside preview whether our success is really indeed leading us to the right ladder of our career & life. It is worth waste if we realise we have miss our precious life while trying to achieve success in some other way of life which is not at all related to our life goal or career.

Another caution is, all the failures in life are not indeed real failure. There too, we need motivation & positive thinking to consider the failure as the chance to experience beforehand the final countdown. If we indeed analyse the past mistakes and put strong determination, we will win someday if not today.

So, we need to dream, plan, & execute – all within the specified time. It’s worth remembering “where there is a will, there is a way“; but at the same time, it is also important to keep reminding ourselves “There is no second chance in Life; & Time just comes and goes for ever“.
