Framing Success: Six Keys to Fulfillment
Since we were born we have been driven to become successful. We have been encouraged by our parents. Society has used various strategies and tactics to plant the success seed by using images, words, and sound (music). We are in awe of huge homes, lavish lifestyles, money, and cars that exceed the budgets of many car owners. The way in which we attempt to be seen as successful is becoming an entrepreneur, climbing the corporate ladder, investing, excelling educationally, or by any means necessary. The way that society has defined success for us is by focusing on four P’s: Power, Payroll, Position, Prestige. But the question is, how fulfilled are they?  Success does not breed fulfillment, but fulfillment breeds success. It is highly possible that a person can obtain one or all of the four P’s but not be fulfilled. However, it is highly unlikely, that a person who is fulfilled in their personal and professional lives is not successful.
