Wow well I guess my answer won't be as good as everyone above... I agree with "Peace of Mind", Love given and received, etc.
What is Success for me? Very good question. I remember two years ago when I was laid off from my job, quit college because of that job might I add, disfellowshipped and feeling lost and hopeless, I had an interview and they asked me what were my acheivements and goals... in the lines of success. I was really stumped to reply and answer... I just said well I findly found a really good guy who wants to marry me and my goal is to be a good wife, find a job to support our lives together. Ha Lame and I know that wasn't quite the right answer they were looking for. Ever since then I pondered that same question... Why am I good enough for anything? What has my life come too? Where do I go from here? I felt to low to succeed at anything! My goals were shot to the ground. And I needed to find new ones... but I had to tackle a "Peace of mind" as you called it. I felt like a falure and a sinner. At the time living with a boyfriend. Sin. No job. Loser. No fulfilled education to back me up. Dumb.
I started from scratch.
Come to me again with that question. :) I found success when I pulled myself out of that gutter. Saw hope and reached for it. Never gave up on me and found "Peace of Mind" that it was ok to help me and forgive me. I found the strength to put effort in reaching goals I made for myself and found a job, Went back to school, and Had supportive and loving people in my life to tell me how proud they were of me. In the end I felt successful.
I couldn't have found success though if it wasn't for help of kind hearted people that at the time didn't really know me to long, I couldn't have found success if I didn't make an effort, and I couldn't have found success if I didn't look back and gave appressiation and reconition to myself and others.
And what makes it more exciting is my success continues... I'm a mother of a beautiful baby son... so far I feel the success coming when he is able to tell me he loves me. If so... He gives me the biggest smile every morning when I see him. And my husband kisses me and says goodbye before living for work. And comes home to ask me how my day was and what a wonderful mother and wife, I am.
Just like many of you I find that my daily work gives me daily success. Small and simple as it may be it make me happy.
