You’re a success, regardless…

It’s easy to believe that for one to be labeled a success, they must have fat bank accounts, superb careers and are high up in society. Maybe it’s so because society has created a picture of what it should mean and what it should look like. It seems like success has a stereotype: lavish lifestyle, a mega social media following, a fabulous career… the list goes on. Therefore, it is understandable why most people feel that they are so far behind and why they also feel like failures when it doesn’t work out for them by that definition.

This, however, is a misconception. Success isn’t and shouldn’t be limited to lavish living or a large social media following and the likes. You can be called one even in the little things you do.

If you’ve been able to complete a certain task, no matter how simple it may seem, you’re successful. If you are able to get by on a daily basis, you are successful. If you’re able to provide for your family, no matter how little, that is an achievement. If you’re still holding on regardless of how bad things seem, you’re a success. How about if you get out of that toxic relationship or a depressed state? What if you create a vision, overcome those fears, take the leap of faith and make that vision a reality? That, my friend, is a very successful outcome.

Maybe it’s time we started seeing and defining success in the little things we do on a daily basis rather than basing it, particularly on money and materialism. Perhaps, we wouldn’t feel left out, neither would we feel so insecure. I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t see the need to outdo one another or feel envious of each other. There would be no need for clout chasing or fake lifestyles because we would be content with our little successes knowing fully well that we are all shining in our individual ways.

So always remember that you’re a success, regardless of where you are in life. Don’t let society’s definition make you feel less of yourself. Have fun celebrating those little successes instead of wallowing in self-pity. I hope you have an amazing Monday. Much love!

Thanks for this reminder. I’m on my late 20’s and lately, I feel that I’m behind my colleagues because most of them are now married and have a child. After reading this, I thought about all my achievements. I must say that being successful is not really about who gets the first milestone. We are all successful in our own ways.

Exactly, Karla. I’m also single and in my late 20’s. I take life easy and celebrate my “little” successes.

This is a great blog post and a great reminder that success isn’t always big things and money


I agree on this post so much! Success is something not really measurable!

Kristine Nicole Alessandra

This was what I wanted to read. So uplifting! I’ve been having such a hard time lately, trying to get out of this depression that hit me hard this time around. I have to keep repeating that to myself – I am a success!

Sondra Barker

Yes! This is such a great reminder!

Melanie williams

LOVE this…such an important and well needed message. Being positive regardless re being a success is a must xx

Ashley Rademacher

So many of us compare our lives to others and it gets us in a rut.


just this is just what I needed to read today. Sometimes little things can make you wallow but like you said we have to look at the brighter picture and celebrate success! Great post

what a great post. often we like to compare ourselves to others – especially “celebrities”. i’m sure your post will have a positive and encouraging effect on many.

I think Success is defined by your personal goals and the limits you set in yourself. Success is so personal because it’s so different to everyone.


I totally agree with you. As we grow older, our definition of success changes. It’s more than the amount of money or places you’ve been. It is all about living the life that you want with a purpose and meaning.

I agree with you, success is also about being happy and contented with what you have

Sarani Basu

this is so true. some people measure success with how much money you have in your bank. But it is more important to be happy and content.

Paul Murphy

nice post! everyone tries to chase after the cliche of ‘success’ but few stop to take the time to think what success really means to them! keep up the good work! 🙂

Sol Razo

Nice share! Success for me is not about how huge your money and investments are, it’s more of being happy and contented for what you are and what you have
