Success has different faces
Regardless of how the individual defines success, there is no wrong or right, no black or white. The diversity of the nuances makes life, success and happiness.
Whether it's the dream of just being happy or making people happy, making big money or making others rich. Again, no either-or should apply, but always an both-as-well. Happiness is success. Success is luck - whatever the individual person understands it.
The 5 types of success
In the following, I have listed 5 different faces, which may be successful for you:
1. Absolute or relative success
Top performance in sports: the comparison with others and thus the determination of absolute success by a new world record or the achieved gold medal. On the other hand, there is the relative success, that is, the personal best time, or the skipping over of the bar which can be achieved for each individual person.
Personal definition distinguishes between these two types of success - while one is only happy when it is actually the best, the other sets its own as a measure development and looks forward to small steps in the right direction.
2. partial success
One hundred percent is not always the measure to make a success. Sometimes a small success can have a lot to do. Like in football, when a team is on the relegation grounds all the time.
One failure chases the other, then in the last game but still a draw to achieve a relegation place - a partial success. Better than nothing. It goes up again.
Respect and appreciation are demonstrated by the attestation of respect. All attention! When you hear this sentence, you have achieved something, achieved a certain success. The success of the score is often underestimated.
But it is valuable to be recognized by other people. In sport, for example, the success of the Eighth Prize plays an important role. So the Olympian competitor might not have climbed the podium. Shortly before it fell ill, he still achieved a good placement. Better than expected. All attention!
4. The illusion
The tradition is handed down: “Another victory and we are lost!” by King Pyrrhos I of Epirus. He had won the battle at Asculum, but with great losses. At first glance, the victory seemed like a success for him, but in context, the whole thing turned out to be a failure.
The Pyrrhic victory, as the illusion is also called, is an excessively bought success. The victor emerges from the conflict similarly weakened as the defeated, so can not build on the victory. Not everything that looks like a success must be one. Not everyone is happy with the successes they have achieved in life. What seems to be a great success on the outside can have destroyed the affected person for a long time.
5. Material or emotional success
Does success really have to be “black on white”? No, definitely not. Depending on what was set as the goal, it can vary for each person. It makes sense to differentiate between factual or emotional success. In factual success, there is actually a certificate for particularly good work, personal commitment, higher sales, etc. That is provable for success and can be made visible to the outside through things. You show how successful you are.
In contrast to the emotional success: A loving partnership, the family, satisfied employees, with themselves or be faithful to themselves. What is self-evident to one is for the other a goal that is associated with hard work. Whether it is a matter of factual or emotional success, it is crucial to define and find your personal happiness.
