People often interpret success to evolve around materialism which is one of the reasons the ignorant ones often indulge in many dangerous means of acquiring wealth in order to be considered successful because of their profuse lifestyle, which is not genuine most time.
I consider success as individual responsibility that relies on self discovery based on what one is able to do for oneself in order to break the barriers of limitations in life and crossing the bridge of failure to arrive at one’s own land of promise.
So, it’s a process that one who desires to succeed in life, embarks on. Firstly, by discovering one’s abilities and hidden potentials.
Success is not competitive as everyone is not expected to arrive at the same time;
As peoples potentials differs, so do the opportunity to launch their potential varies. Some people maybe opportune enough to launch their potential early in life, thereby earning the extra mundane living beyond their mates. But, it doesn’t mean the potentials of their mates are not well nurtured or defined.
On the process of living lavishly, some who are good at exaggeration can make their mates think the future holds’ nothing for them, or they are rather failures in life. The mates haven defined ‘success’ wrongly, as extra mundane living whereby one has flashy cars and landed properties at his or her disposal.
But, is that what success is all about?
The sweetness of success is on the process of self discovery because that is where the experience lie, most of the people that launched their potential early in life do not really have the experience. But they were opportune, not because their potentials are well nurtured, but because they are impatient to wait further.
If not impatient to wait further, something absolutely compelled them to launch it, except the potential is already nurtured to the best of their ability.
So, such opportunity cannot be considered the golden one but rather the available one, of which a reasonable person would consider it a ‘step-up’ opportunity and nurture his or her potential the more and wouldn’t consider it the golden opportunity whereby one has to pause and pick up the showoff attitude to ignite competition and inequality in the society.
Showoff is one of the ugly trends that are launching the gullible into the fast lane of dangerous earning, to meet up with the extra large living of their mates, who perhaps, are exaggerating their living.
Understanding the predominant in authenticity in the world is one of the ways of curtailing too much expectation from one’s potential, no matter how nurtured. You are not in competition with anyone! You are being the best of you and only the best of you can reward off handsomely and randomly too, not the best of another person.
Showoff is a windy diet often enjoyed by people with non nurtured potential, especially the villains to make others feel inferior of themselves and appear as though they have made it in life or attained extremes of success.
Of which, a patient person will watch wind blow the diet off before the crack of dawn.
So, order than indulging in dangerous means of acquiring wealth to meet up expectations of people or lifestyles of friends, mates or, colleagues (which most time the source of their extra income proves untraceable), why not develop your potential the more and seek for a better or higher opportunity of earning;
But, definitely not to expect the extra large income, except if self-employed to certain height. Always know that nobody becomes a millionaire overnight, if not through the dangerous means, then such a person should be considered lucky.
