The Measure of Success

Success… such a vague broad word!

Just like Happiness, it holds different meanings to different people.

But the feeling I get is that for most people Success is measured by either money, power, status or assets.

Mix everything together and there’s the most common recipe for success.

What else can success mean?

Maybe it’s the perfect body that ultimately makes you feel accomplished.

Or maybe public speaking while getting the crowd’s admiration and inspiration.

Maybe it’s family and kids.

Maybe it’s getting married.

For some of us it may be getting the backpack ready for one more trip.

It may be spending summer sipping your drink watching one more magical sunset at the beach chinringuito with your love or your friends.

It may be an endless summer life chilling on your flip flops.

It may be volunteering in an organization that actually contributes to improve someone’s life, and therefore you help improving someone’s life, as well as your own, just by giving back… paying it forward.

So you see… so many different goals.

All are legitimate.

The beauty of human diversity.

How do you measure success?

In any way it’s meaningful to you.

Success is what you want it to be.

It’s getting where you want to be, regardless of other people’s perception and expectation.

So… get your move on.




If you don’t know what success means to you… find out.

Experiment until you feel “at home”, just like finding love!

And then you’ll know.

Enjoy the ride 💙

The idea behind this page is to share my opinion and experience in what seems to be a crazy world nowadays. I look at myself, my friends and acquaintances and hear so many different, yet similar stories… of our search for Love, disappointments, insights. I wanted to share them! Considering cultural differences some adjustments had to be made. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!
