【英文原文】

I have always been fascinated with the word Success. I have read countless descriptions and definitions of the word, but I have yet to find a description that is all encompassing. Success means different things to different people.

In blogging here at Success Begins Today, we have talked about a myriad of things that lead to success, but it is hard to put into words the exact meaning.

The dictionary says Success is www.verywen.com


the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors. 本文来自美文网


the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like. www.verywen.com


Yet those words tend to imply that success is a destination. If that is true, then it begs the question… are we a failure until we reach the destination? I like Authur Ashe’s definition better… verywen.com


Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.

In my experience, I would agree with that statement. So many times the journey itself is the key element. The important thing about the journey is the direction. Is it leading to success or is it leading to failure. verywen.com


For the new year, I would like to introduce the concept of consequences. copyright verywen.com


The definition of Consequence is verywen.com


the effect, result, or outcome of something occurring earlier:
The accident was the consequence of reckless driving.
an act or instance of following something as an effect, or outcome.
Eating less at each meal led to positive consequences.

In simple terms a path of action can have three different outcomes or consequences.

1. Positive Consequences. The path leads in a positive direction towards success 内容来自美文网


2. Negative Consequences. The path leads in a negative direction towards failure verywen.com


3. Unintended Consequences. The path led in a different direction than planned.

This simple concept can help us judge our actions and goals.

Let me give you a simple example of each one. 美文网


1. If you save 10% of your income each paycheck and put it in savings, the consequences are very positive. In times of trouble or in retirement you’ll have a nest egg to draw from. 本文来自美文网


2. If you spend more that your paycheck by 10% by charging things on a credit card it can have very negative consequences in the long term by creating a growing debt balance with high interest.

3. Lending money to a friend or family member may seem like a helpful thing to do but may have the unintended consequences of anger and broken relationships if the debt is not repaid. www.verywen.com


It is my premise that doing activities and setting goals with positive consequences will lead a person to success. www.verywen.com
