Personally?... I'm happy in my life... There's a roof over my head, food on the table and a little money in the bank... I never was one to chase "dollars" as a measurement of success... Contentment and good health were of more concern.

That is really a tough question.  It depends on where you are in your life.  When I was in school, it was completing another class towards my degree. When I was out of school, it was getting my first professional job, and then getting promoted within it. Having a family was a long term goal and achieving that was great success.  Opening a brokerage and succeeding in it was a huge success within the last few years.  Now I am looking at defining success based on whether or not we can transition into a great, active retirement sometime within the next 5 years.

“What is success?


To laugh often and much;

to win the respect of intelligent people

and the affection of children;

to earn the appreciation of honest critics

and endure the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate the beauty;

to find the best in others;

to leave the world a bit better,

whether by a healthy child,

a garden patch

Or a redeemed social condition;

to know even one life has breathed easier

because you have lived.

 

This is to have succeeded!”

How do you measure happiness?  It differs by person and not really quantifiable.

That was the title of one of the first blogs that I posted here after I joined AR 10+ years ago.Here's a snippet from it...

 

Most people measure success in dollars, position or other tangible ways and for years I was one of them...at least until my mentor passed away.

The words from the eulogy are stuck in my head

"If success is measured by the number of lives

that he touched,

then he was wildly sucessful".

How do you measure success?

There is only ONE measure.

SUCCESS is measureable only in the number of lives one helps.
Devine success is measurable only in the number of lives one helps by the touch of their hand.(doing the direct work)

All other iterations of success produce regret when the hourglass nears empty.

Mortgage Officer 46 years!

I am now retired as a Licensed Mortgage Banker of 51 years. Lent over $1 Billion in mortgages. I now give FREE mortgage advise and I DO NOT REFER any business to current mortgage companies. I feel it's my way to give back after a very successful business. I have no need for money and I am trying to get my heath back from being a 100% Disabled Marine Vietnam Vet. Recent events have raised my PTSD and I am sadden by the lost 0f my 11 Marine Brothers and Sisters in Afghanastan. Of course I feel sad for are Army and Navy hero;s. Success is measured in many different ways by people. Money is one, but Heath and Friends are so much more important. As Mark Twain said, "Live your life so well, that even the Undertaker cries at your funeral". Take Care  and and success to all of you.....

Success  (as an agent) is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them. 

Wealth is a by product of that.

Measure?  In small bites, and a "gain" mentality VS a "gap" aka "how far have I come" (if I see progress & growth it's a success) VS the "gap" mentality of "I still have so far to go" and seeing the present as a failure.

Success is a relative aspiration unique to each individual.

We all have our goals in life, career, wealth and so forth. 

Sometimes sucess is the achievement of these goal, and most of the time it is in finding and recognizing happiness.
