What Success Looks Like

I'd like to be successful in life, (I'm sure most people do), but I'm still grappling with what it means to be successful. I think what I really need to do is to itemize what's most important to me over the course of my imagined lifetime and I'll find my definition somewhere on that list. But until then, this image that I found on Business Insider makes me feel much better about all the struggles I've encountered :) It's a tweet from Unilever's vice president. What do you think?

Success is just like the journey of life, and knowing that every moment makes it all worthwhile and takes us on our own adventure. :)

Success happens to be what you make of it. The journey's in life are never easy, but they are worth it in the end.

This is great! I love the illustration. It's never that simple, and anything worth having is never easy

Totally agree with the other posts. There is no straight shot to success and it's definitely an adventure. Plus everyone's definition of success is different. The key is enjoying your journey.

Jen, this is great. It is about the journey after all.

I agree success doesn't come easy or in a straight path, this photo is so appropriate!! I know how it is - I'd love to be successful and have Etsy become a business. But that might not come without years of pushing myself, marketing and lots of work. It's what you put into it that you'll get out of it.

Best wishes!!

So true. A tangled road to success or a bumpy one...same concept. Gotta just keep moving.

Success is hard, but it you try you will succeed.

Success is different to each person.. it is what you make it.
