“Never give up”… how many times do we come across versions of that statement? It seems like every time I log onto Facebook there’s some inspirational quote in my news feed to that effect. But is it really that easy to keep on going? When it seems like all odds are stacked up against us and there is no solution in sight, how do we find that strength and courage? How do we stay positive?
Last week I met a student at a networking session and he asked me something I hadn't really thought about in a while: "What do you think success is?"
I actually paused and looked closely in his eyes, trying to understand what he wanted to hear. I cleared my throat and answered, “ask a thousand people the same question and you’ll find just as many different answers. The meaning of success is different for everyone, based on their experiences and goals in life. To me, being happy and content with myself and being able to understand myself and the people around me is success.”
