‘Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.’
The definition of success differs with each individual. Furthermore, it keeps changing, depending upon the phase of life you’re going through. Back in school, making the swim team might’ve been it. A little down the road, passing the driving test, and maybe further down, making loads of money!

Make time for yourself, every single day
Single, married, studying, employed, unemployed or a mixture of any of these; each one of you deserve a little time for yourself. More so, you need it. It could be in the form of mediation, exercise, reading, a little music, shopping (best of all of course!) or any number of things. It should be something that you find relaxing and refreshing. Something that can always make you go through the day with a positive state of mind.
Contentment is something alien to human nature. We’re never satisfied with what we have, and are always looking for more or for something better. Challenge yourself to be better than you were yesterday. Improve every little thing about yourself, constantly. Be it your intellect, health, relationships, career and so on. Keep reminding yourself that there is so much more to be achieved, and keep working for it. The key to success after all, is to keep pushing.
