The traditional definition of success means attaining or accomplishing something. This is an accurate definition. However, if we limit our idea of success to arriving at a destination, we overlook the little triumphs along the way.
Perhaps the most overlooked triumph along the way is the mere act of overcoming disappointments and moving forward. In other words, continuing along a path that has been full of stumbling blocks. Let’s keep in mind that simply “surviving” these disappointments is also a success. Moreover, as this anonymous quote reminds us, success (by definition) is what happens when we do so.
