I define success through having pride and happiness in what you do. If your not happy with what you're doing then you can't be successful and you really have to be motivated and take pride in what you do. In my life I have achieved success in being a leader which is actually quite suprising to me because most teachers think i'm a distraction or crazy in the classroom which I may be. I find success in my life by staying motivated in the things I do and enjoy. I achieved that success by staying hard working in sports, school, and relationships(at least family and friend relationships).
"Whatever you are be a good one" -Abraham Lincoln
I like this quote by president Lincoln because it says no matter what you are, whether it's a doctor or a bum then just be good at what you do.
Failure. How do I define failure? I define failure as the opposite of success, being unhappy in your profession or life. The areas of my life that I have found that I may have failed in are not being as close to my family as I could be. I am not sure that this has been because I've obligated my life to other things like baseball or friends but I feel like I haven't been as close to my parents as I could be. What led to it? Like i said, what led to it was obligating my life to other things outside of my family.
Even though this picture is small I chose it because it says something to me. It says to me that you can choose whether you want to be find success in life or if you want failure. Finding success is something that everyone can do as long as you know what you want to find it in, however you don't find failure, failure is something that overcomes you.
Depending on your success or failure(s) in life depends on how you are motivated. Failure may make you want to get better, success may make you greedy and want more then what you already have. Personally, I find more motivation by failing. Why? Then I know what to fix in order to find success.
My goals for my blog were to learn the Finnish language and culture. So far I have found success in learning words that interest me because they role off the tongue or they are funny such as sexual references or just very basic words. However, also in this blog I have failed at learning more culture and strong grammar but that's hard to do alone. And yes I've been very alone in this blog because I haven't been as talkative with my foreign exchange student. In order to find success I'll need to just have more communication with my student who is from Finland. At the end if I get a good grade and am happy with my work then I will have success, otherwise failure.
