Everything that occurs to us, occurs for a reason. And sometimes, one thing leads to another. Instead of locking yourself in your cage of fears and screaming about past heartaches, embarrassments and failures, treat them as your instructors and they will become your tools for improvement and success.
Success and happiness tend to go hand in hand, but, you have to find out what it is that would make you feel successful and pleased.
Occasionally you will find that success and happiness will pull you in 2 different directions. For example, you may find that your current living situation makes you happy, but if you ever want to be a CEO then you will have to head to the city. You will have to consider, at some point, which is more crucial to you. Keep in mind that if you are able to discover happiness, then you will be more personally successful than you can imagine. Everyone's goals should be to lead to happiness and if you do that, then you will find success.
So when does self-improvement become synonymous with success?
