Success is something that is dreamed about by the everyday intangible mind that wants to feel the pride and glory of being a step up from regular and normal.
The first step to acquiring success is learning the ability to separate yourself from negative situations and people. Negativity is not something natural that fits in the everyday life, it happens here and there, but it shouldn't be an everyday habit. Being able to cut off the negativity in your life will help you see the bigger picture in life, which is for most people being able to spend time with their family and enjoying and taking pride in your everyday work.
Pursuit is a healthy form of going after something more. When you reach a milestone in life, you should never stop reaching for the next level. Reaching for the next level is always healthy, as long as you don't let it control your life. Reaching for something better should be done in your free time and should be enjoyable. Pursuit is one of the biggest factors of reaching success. Success doesn't just fall in your lap; you have to earn the right to say that you have acquired success.
Disappointment and stress also play a very important role in success. Disappointment can come from a number of things. Some people may feel like they have wasted so much of their time on something that is showing little to no results, and there are other situations where someone may feel that they have did well but not as well as they wanted to do. Disappointment can stop or delay someone from pursuing what they really want. For some people, disappointment is so bad that they're afraid to fail, which creates a life of stress, because you're constantly running away from tough situations because you’re afraid of the outcome. Stress is not something that someone should constantly go through, it is unhealthy to the body and is not a successful behavior.
Instincts are what keep us alive as human beings. Our instincts help us determine between what's real and what we feel. Instincts are one of the biggest factors of success and staying successful. Great instincts result from experience and awareness that in some cases can only be acquired through time. Sometime's what we feel isn't such a great choice at the time. Feelings are somewhat temporary and shouldn't be depended on for every situation. When making a huge decision, we should sit down and think about "what's real" more than "what we feel". Real things in life never really change, the situation may be different but the principle often remains the same.
Success isn't judged by money or fancy cars, but more of the principles and values of life and of course pure happiness.
