The question of what is success has been a very important question for which I have sought answers from many people. I have met real rich people, bureaucrats, politicians, businessmen, corrupt people,…………….50 years on the planet allows all this..and the best definition of success was given by a very learned, but uneducated man. He has no degree – thanks to Partition he could not even complete schooling.
He said “When I am 80 years of age…if
1. I can say If I were to live life again, I would repeat what I did,
2. Laugh much more than cry,
3. Have successful human relationships
and if 50 years after my death my son can proudly enter any room in the world without worrying that somebody would say ‘His father got me into trouble’
I would be successful.
So I asked him ‘why 50 years?’ – he said people are afraid of Dons long after they are dead…even fear about me will not be there 50 years later.
I think it is an awesome definition….and if you can sing Frank Sinatra’s song…here it is….that to me would be the icing…
