How do you measure success?

Is success the amount of wealth one acquires? Is it fame? Or is it how many trophies and awards received.  Is it how many books, music albums, movies ect. sold? To some the consolidation of power
over people and things is success. The list goes on and on. But have you ever considered  the simpler success stories, the humble ones that may seem insignificant to some people but extraordinary to those involved. Example: The kid who has struggled to keep from failing in school brings their grades up.
Parents who raise their children without making them cringe in fear whenever they are near them. When
they themselves came from abusive childhoods and choose not to follow that path. The couple that still hold hands and goes out on dates and have a greater love for each other after decades of marriage.
How about the the guy who's been out of work for months and finally lands a steady job because he didn't give up. The girl who was told growing up she was nothing and wouldn't amount to anything. Now is a published author and is becoming very popular with many people. I could go on but I think you get the point. Success can be anything. So before you judge yourself or others unsuccessful, really think about it. I'll bet you find more successes than you thought.
Be thankful for small things. Like this small blog and being able to write it, and hoping it will touch someone in a positive way. I wish you much success in all that you do in life, and thanks for reading
