The Definition of Success
A businessman was driving through a small village when he came across a fisherman returning from his daily fishing trip. The visitor saw an immense opportunity, and with his own plethora of business experience, he showered the man with ideas of how the daily fishing make the fisherman millions of dollars and buy him all the luxuries he wanted.
After the fisherman asked a series of questions, the businessman told him that if he created a hugely successful business, the fisherman could achieve his definition of fulfillment: to live in a quiet village, sleep late, fish a little, take an afternoon siesta, play with his children and take a stroll into the sunset.
The story concludes with the fisherman’s final question: “But isn’t that what I am doing right now?”
How often do we embark upon a journey of self-reflections to answer the ever-evolving questions “Am I successful?” Some need only a few moments, others take a few days, but for many the search for the answer takes a lifetime.
