success [səkˈsɛs] (noun) – an event that accomplishes its intended purpose; the attainment of a favorable or desired outcome; the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted; an action that immediately and involuntarily results in “the pump.”
We tend to equate success with the attainment of wealth and fame, but success isn’t merely reserved for that tiny sliver of potential. When you boil it down to its very essence, success is simply an event that accomplishes its intended purpose (that’s any event for any purpose).
Today, I successfully got out of bed. I’m not rich or famous because of it it, but nevertheless, I was 100% successful in that activity. In fact, I’ve been practicing success all day long, and whether you’ve realized it or not, you too are a success MACHINE!
You see, there’s no such thing as remaining stagnant. No matter what, we are always either progressing or regressing, succeeding or not succeeding. Regardless, we are constantly practicing success – either successfully or unsuccessfully (this will make sense later).
