Where do you see yourself?

Where do you see yourself in the coming ten years? A very common question being asked in the job interviews to most of the business graduates. I still remember the day when I appeared in the interview for the first time in my life. It was for Tata Consultancy services HR assistant. I answered almost all the questions like what is 360 degree appraisal, Syndicate training and bla bla. At the end the interviewee asked that very simple question which was quite expected to be asked. Like every average student, I replied, “I want to be a successful person.” Then she asked, what is success?” I was totally blank at that time. She smiled at me and I never got a call back. Now 10 years have passed since I did my post graduation. I don’t have an appropriate   answer of that second question yet. People define it in their own ways:

Barack Obama, “Success isn’t about how much money you make. It’s about the difference you make in People’s life.”

Stephen Covey, (writer of the book “7 habbits of highly effective people”) said, “If you carefully consider what you want to be said of you in the funeral experience you will find your definition of success.”

Bill Gates, “It is also nice to feel like you made a difference — inventing something or raising kids or helping people in need.”

Warren Buffett, “I measure success by how many people love me.”

Thomas Edison, “Success is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.”

Winston Churchill, “Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”

I also did my self-introspection and found a few answers from within. Success doesn’t have any one definition. Success is the alternative word for satisfaction. A person is successful when he/she is satisfied with what he/she is doing and his/her achievements. Don’t forget to tell me in the comment section about your viewpoint of success.

    1. Agree with everyone…
      And for me….
      Success starts from the day….you start doing what you love…what you are made for…. Though people, society dissuades you..
      But You keep going ….
      Stepping up…
      Because when you do what you love…
      You don’t care about success….
      Aur vaise bhi….
      ( Aksar raaste vahi khoobsurat hote hai.. Jahan manzil ka pata hi na ho) 😇
