What does SUCCESS mean to you?

Many people view success in terms of power, wealth, or fame. This is not the true success that a lot of us strive for and accomplish every day. Many of the most enduring and satisfying forms of success have nothing do with acquiring power, wealth, or fame. Success is what you make it. For some people it is just keeping busy, having fun and enjoying life as never before.
Lots of people have a goal of wanting to make heaps of money so they can do nothing. The people who have this desire most often hate their jobs. They have given up trying and can't believe they will ever achieve their financial goals through their career. It's easy to fall into this trap.
When you're spending your days working your butt off - full time loafing sounds like an attractive proposition. Actually it becomes quite boring after a while.
The solution is really easy. Stop working and start enjoying how you make your money. No matter what job you do, it is vitally important that you find something you love doing... something you are passionate about.
However, if you end up working for yourself, or working from your residence - there will be no bosses to prod you along. You need be able to jump out of bed in the morning filled with the enthusiasm to get going.
As a matter of fact, I haven't worked for years. It's not that I've retired, it's just that I love what I'm doing. My definition of work - anything I'm doing when I'd rather be doing something else.
When you think about it, anyone can stop working. There are two ways to achieve this, but they are both big steps to take.
The first; is to change your attitude to work.
The second; is to guide your work efforts into activities you love doing. The best way to be employed is to achieve the things you enjoy achieving. That way it's not work.
