In this day and age, success is often equated with fame and fortune. If you don't have the fame or fortune, you're not considered successful. But think about it for a second. What does success look like for you? For some people, success is their job. For others, success is making a certain amount of money. For many, success is their family. If you're stuck in a job you hate, with no hope for a better future, you might find it difficult to be happy. But if you're passionate about what you do and you find joy in your daily activities, then you're likely going to find success.

There are many things that can go wrong with the idea of success. First, success can mean different things to different people. For some, success might mean a certain amount of money. For others, success might mean a certain job title. For others, success might mean a certain amount of power. But no matter what success means to you, it's best to understand what success means to others. Success can be a trap. Sometimes it's not what you think it's going to be. This can lead to disappointment, frustration, and anger, so keeping your expectations in check is important. Because success might not be what you wanted it to be, It might not be what you expected it to be. But it's still something that is worth pursuing.

Success is not always what we think it will be, Sometimes what we think will be a fruitful endeavor can be a complete let down but whatever it may be we don't have to take it for granted and we must be realistic about what success will look like because we can probably find success in the small things. Sometimes success can be found in the little things like helping someone less fortunate. For example, you might find success in helping a friend who is going through a hard time being a good person and helping out those in need. Sometimes success is in leading a fulfilling life in a home being a good wife or husband. That's the reason the definition is different for everyone.

My short story

There was a time when I was doing well. I had a decent job that gives me little money as young as I am, a good relationship with people, I was healthy and happy. Then one day it all changed. Everything I thought would make me happy, didn't. I was unhappy and I couldn't find a way to make it stop. I was lost and I didn't know how to get back on the path that would make me happy. I thought I was happy and it wasn't until I was miserable that I realized it wasn't the case.

What I'm trying to explain with my short story is that We often have a misconception that if we work hard or try harder, we'll find success. But sometimes if you work hard enough and try hard enough, you'll find failure. So there are different ways to define success and success often.

In conclusion

It's easy to get caught up in the idea that success is going to be one and the same with happiness. But people often find that once they have achieved a certain level of success, they are not as happy as they thought they would be. Success can be a trap, and it can lead people to think that they need more and more in order to be happy and content. But the truth is, success is not always going to lead to happiness. It is possible to find happiness in the absence of success, and this is what I explored in this article " Success it's not what you think it's going to be"
