Measuring Success

BookerTWashingtonObstacles

In an attempt to measure success, we inevitably measure failure, obstacles, boundaries. But do we value them or value the absence of them? Many of us view failure as a sign of weakness, imperfection, and unoriginality. But that is not the case at all, as long as we do not allow any failure, any obstacle, any boundary to be point at which we end the journey. Every time we overcome, re-cooperate, re-organise, our goal becomes even more important. The success isn’t made sweeter by how quickly or effortlessly we got there, but instead by how much we were willing to struggle, to put in the time, to never give up. You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals.
