Buying and Selling

Achieving success in life has a lot more to do with how you define being successful than it does with doing what others tell you to do.

So long as people buy what someone is putting out regarding “becoming successful,” then the salesman wins and gets money in their pocket.  Does the salesman ultimately care if their method works for others?
No.
So long as their end goal is met, they probably couldn’t care less because they are busy with the next sale.  This is to be read “they don’t have time to care,” aside from the caring that builds their business.

The definition of success is defined by each individual, and those who are being “sold” are supporting someone else’s dream and therefore, (monetary) success.  There are no definite “X Steps To Success,” and whoever buys into it, is being sold; The seller wins.

So long as one believes these things to be the “key” to success, it is self-evident that another person’s life is being idolized vs creating one’s own definition of it, and thereby not living one’s own.  Until you truly understand and believe that you are your ownwhy,” you are fooling yourself and will suffer needlessly (and others as a result).  Let’s add here that no one’s life is perfect, nor would salespeople be willing to show off the true “behind the scenes” footage, so to speak.  They sell.  Successful selling only exists if the true cost is not shown.  Right?

“The biggest breakthroughs come from outsiders—people who have no career or prestige, people like Einstein—who look at the current assumptions and simply say, ‘What if this wasn’t true? What could be a better explanation?'”

Granted, I doubt Einstein’s main goal was chasing paper or fame, but look at where he is today!

Be your own “why.”

Keep pursuing that which makes one happiest, the rest falls into place as it should.
