Most people define success in terms of money and status. But what is real success? Can success truly be measured by material possessions, status or power? No, because the yardstick used to measure these self-serving items tends to change. Nevertheless, one must satisfy reasonable needs for material and social well-being in order to feel freed to progress to the higher levels of desires–to serve others and to achieve freedom from all desires.
Success is attaining what you desire and wanting what you have attained. Such success results in fulfillment. To have success, you must first know who you are and what you truly desire — from within. That is why Introspection is the first step in the Framework for Purposeful Action. Once you know what you really, truly want, you should perform a reality check and reconcile your vision with your current state. This will help you define a mission for your action. Now make an unwavering commitment to your mission and proceed with your action purposefully — applying the remaining nine steps of Purposeful Action.
