Success. What is success in your opinion?
Here are some definitions of the term success. I chose the ones that I feel are most applicable to me and to many others.
The achieving of desired results.
A favorable or desired outcome.
Success is the achievement of something that you have been trying to do.
The achievement of something that you planned to do or attempted to do.
The dictionaries also mention things such as money, expensive items etc. This is what most people think about when it comes to what they think of as a successful person. I have underlined two segments in the above definitions. This is because I will be focusing on these areas as part of the work undertaken by Project The Remote Influencer - PTRI.
Money or making huge money has never been a priority for me. Albert Einstein once quoted ' Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value'. I would have to agree with Einstein on this one. I believe that money could be made as a by product of the work we do. It doesn't have to be the main focus though. I feel that I have achieved some level of success with this blog. The blog has been running since 2016. I have funded this blog myself without outside financial help and I have not accrued any debts through the creation of this blog. In research, results don't happen overnight. It can take years for certain types of research projects to succeed. Research can also be built or improved upon by other present day or future researchers. So therefore, the research work we undertake is not a waste of time.
