So what is success? Merriam Webster Dictionary defines success as “the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame; the correct or desired result of an attempt; or someone or something that is successful: a person or thing that succeeds”. Notice how easily in our society we tie “success” to “money, fame and social status”. Yet many of us know wealthy or famous people who are unhappy despite their riches. Is that really success? I say “No”. As for me I prefer my own definition of success “as having been able to take the steps to lead a happy life on this planet, with comfort, moral support, true values and a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.” As I enter my seventh decade I can more analytically reflect on the success I have had (by my definition), with some failures or better yet learning steps along the way. My coming book We Got Mojo! Stories of Inspiration and Perspiration reflects on the stories of 36 of us, our trials and tribulations as well as the successes that follow. In this blog we will regularly elaborate on many specific parts of our stories and invite readers to share their own stories with us as well as with readers of this blog. We encourage everyone to become an instant author. Send us blog-size snippets of your road to success, your definition of success, and how it has changed you.
The first 200 writers will get a special gift from the Lead Author of We Got Mojo! Raul Deju.
