The secrets of successful people all depends on how you define success. Is it money, fame and recognition? Career, position and respect? Family, marriage and love? Maybe you define it as being able to follow your passions and dreams, or even simpler, happiness. How about a combination of all of the above? Is that success?

Even the word “success” can be subjective and transient for individuals. However you define it, does it always seem like an unattainable goal for you and so easy for others?

How many times have you assumed that someone’s success was based on who they knew, pure luck and happened over night? I know I have been guilty of that a few times too. And while there may be a few instances where those things may have been the cause, more often than not, the opposite is true. We like to believe that the above statement is the secret to success because we want to believe in “easy” success.

The secret to success is simple, you have to define it for yourself first. Everything after that, is really hard.
