How to define Success

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. " ~Winston Churchill

Ashley sent me this fun little quote last night, and I kind of love it. I kind of love it so much that I have definitely thought of a cute way to draw it and put it on my wall. It is so true. Because, honestly how do you define success.

I mean, good old Webster says : A :
degree or measure of succeeding b : favorable or desired outcome; also : the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence
But, where do you stop and sit there and say, this is everything I have always wanted. This is my favorable or desired outcome. Maybe it is just me, but I know for sure that I never have. But I know that down the road, in many different places I have failed, but I can say with full enthusiasm that I just kept going. Like the little engine that could, just keep saying, I think I can, I think I can.

So, hold you head high! Keep on pushing up that hill saying I think I can,I think I can, because all you need is a little bit of faith in yourself, and you can be successful. But you need to find your own definition of success. Deep down in your heart do you want to be the person who looks back and says, I don't have a billion dollars in the bank, I failed at life, or do you want to be the person who says, Wow. Look at all of the things I have made it through and accomplished. I would personally rather be the second person, and I'll be pushing up that hill singing I think I can the whole way.
