What Is Success About?

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

– Albert Schweitzer

What It Means For Me

If happiness is the key to success, then the only thing you have to ask yourself is this: Are you happy right now with your life? And if not, what is it exactly that makes you happy?

There has to be one thing in your life that keeps you excited like nothing else. Find out what it is and think about how you can do it every single day.

Here is the thing:

The only person in the world that can answer this question is you. If you cannot do so because you feel lost, confused and disoriented you may ask a close friend or relative that knows you better than yourself.

Just do what you love and believe in it and success will come automatically:


Take up this idea and make it an integral part of your life. You have to think it, breathe it, dream it, and live it in every moment. Your whole existence has to be full of this idea in every sense and way imaginable.

What do I mean by that?

Without having a desire to start with, we lose the chance to channel our energy in one direction. Instead we get lost in daily nonsense and waste time, energy and our resources. If you don’t have a vision, how do you expect to achieve anything?

Here is an example:

When you wake up in the morning you have to be eager to work on your idea and can’t wait to get started. Do you feel like this on a Monday morning when your alarm clock is doing its duty? Then you can be sure that you really do what you love.

But many of us rather start to count the days until Friday arrives, when they can again escape their unpleasant duty for another two days.

So what should you do?

It doesn’t really matter what you desire. You might think that you cannot make a living from it. This couldn’t be further from the truth. There is no right or wrong in living your dream and there is always a way to make a living from it if you only allow yourself to think bigger.

Here is the thing:

Do you want to be surfing all day, have your own strawberry farm, excel in your craftsmanship, or show the world what you do make the most delicious chocolate cake?

Did you dream as a child to build a huge model railroad, write your own fantasy story or to go on a treasure hunt with Donald and Dagobert Duck (I did 🙂 )?

Whatever you are good at or want to be good at, why don’t you get started right here, right now? Why don’t you allow yourself to at least think about living your dream? I f you can’t imagine it, it can’t get real.

If you don’t allow yourself to:

  1. have a dream,
  2. allow yourself to pursue it,
  3. and don’t care what other people think of you,

how can you ever expect to change your life for good?

Stop comparing yourself with others. Instead of being envious of others, why don’t you see their success as an inspiration and start focusing on working towards your own goals?


Action is the foundation to success.

Ask yourself the following question to get you going every morning:

What is the single most important action step that I can do today towards fulfilling my desire?

Today is all that you have, over and over again. Today is the only time that exists, what do you do about it? What are you waiting for? Do you seriously think that you can only get started in one week, one month, or one year from now on? No matter when you think will be the right time; it will just be another day with 24 hours, just like today.

What could you have achieved by then if you would have started today to work at least 30 minutes daily towards your goal?

All visualization, manifestation and law of attraction techniques will be useless if you do not take action! Our thoughts create our reality, yes, but without us getting into action, we cannot enter the law of exchange. We have to set a cause that can have an effect, without action, no reaction. This is very simple.

Setting goals

In setting daily achievable goals in alignment with a greater purpose we create the opportunity to successfully completing these tasks. This way we experience the joy of achievement, which in turn keeps us motivated and makes us happy. This is a self-enhancing process that will become the power source of your personal success story.

But action alone is not enough, you have to add value:


Adding value to whatever you do is a fundamental to success. It doesn’t matter what we are doing. But what matters is how we are doing it. Do you honestly try to give your best, and to add value? Without adding value you cannot expect to receive something of value.

The subsequent quote inspired me long time ago and it truly helped me along my way since then:

“If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

So no matter what you do, always give your best. And there is no better thing to do than something that you truly love and that is your own personal project or business.

You have to be happy in giving more than you receive. This is the true meaning of value and abundance. If you look into nature you see that everything is overflowing in abundance. Be grateful for what you have and always be ready to give more than necessary

Instead of creating someone else’s dream, start building your own and be passionate about it.

Adding value to your actions


Success is nothing more than practicing the same simple actions every single day.

Consistency is therefore another important key to success.

What you have to keep in mind is this:

Consistent action creates consistent results. The more often you do something the more it becomes your habit and second nature.

But be cautious here, because this works both ways!

If you want to learn how you can change bad habits and replace them with more beneficial, success enhancing habits and behaviors then I can recommend you to try self-hypnosis. This is what helped me to get rid of self-constraining beliefs and thinking patterns and what can help you as well, if you allow it to do so.

It is better to work every day for some minutes towards your goals than picking up one time per week and then all day long. This is valid if you want to lose weight, stop smoking, make money, or learn something new.


The only true failure in life is to never have tried it. Instead of finding 1000 excuses why you didn’t do something, try to find just 1 reason that is worth going for it.

Facing and overcoming obstacles and failures is to prove how badly you want something. How many times are you ready to fail until you achieve your goals?

“Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.”

– George S. Patton

A mistake in its original meaning comes from “missing the mark”. When you miss the exit from the highway you don’t continue to drive on the highway forever or give up and walk instead. You simply take the next exit and adjust your route. The same is true for your vision. There are many ways to achieve your desires, and if something turns out to be a failure, you have just found another way that won’t work.

Never losing enthusiasm no matter how many times you fail is another key to success.

If you think you have tried everything possible then I tell you that you are wrong. Just give it one more try.

Michel Jordan - I have failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed

Who Said ItAlbert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) was a French-German theologian, organist, philosopher, and physician.  About his time in West Africa, when he was serving as a physician, he said: “For years I have been giving myself out in words but this new form of activity would not be merely talking about the religion of love, but actually putting it into practice.

There you have it again: Radical Action!

He received the Nobel Prize for his philosophy of “Reference for Life“.

Below you find a short excerpt of it:

“I am life which wills to live, in the midst of life which wills to live. As in my own will-to-live there is a longing for wider life and pleasure, with dread of annihilation and pain; so is it also in the will-to-live all around me, whether it can express itself before me or remains dumb. The will-to-live is everywhere present, even as in me. If I am a thinking being, I must regard life other than my own with equal reverence, for I shall know that it longs for fullness and development as deeply as I do myself. Therefore, I see that evil is what annihilates, hampers, or hinders life. And this holds true whether I regard it physically or spiritually. Goodness, by the same token, is the saving or helping of life, the enabling of whatever life I can to attain its highest development.

In me the will-to-live has come to know about other wills-to-live. There is in it a yearning to arrive at unity with itself, to become universal. I can do nothing but hold to the fact that the will-to-live in me manifests itself as will-to-live which desires to become one with other will-to-live.”

4 thoughts on “What Is Success About?”

  1. I definitely agree with you. I think success can come in all forms: money, fulfilling personal goals, giving to others. It’s not necessarily doing better than others, but instead doing better than what you thought you were capable of and finishing all the goals you had in mind.

    Thank you for this!

    • Thank you Daybe for stopping by. You are right, it is not about comparing ourselves to others. Each one of us has a unique set of skills and talents that is only waiting to be unleashed. The biggest obstacle for this is not someone else’s success but our own limiting beliefs. But in order to do so we have to look inside of us.

      Have a great day

  2. I believe the definition of success can be very personal indeed. There are people who can be content with very little and consider themselves successful. Other define success in terms of health, as you write in your interesting post.
    So, as long as our goals, whatever they might be, are fulfilled, we experience success.
    Thanks for sharing,


    • Hi Francesco,

      thank you very much for your comment. Although everyone may have different personal goals it is important to not get consumed by always wanting more. I think that it is very important to find a balance of what you already have and of what you still want to achieve .

      One way to do so is learning to be grateful


      For setting and actually achieving your goals I have written an entire series. I recommend to start with the Introduction To Goal Setting – 8 Steps To Achieve Your Goals

      At the end success is built on small regular steps that build something big in the end.

      Have a successful day, everyday!
