Let’s take a look at the moments in our life where we experienced success. It can be success in our job, in a relationship, in hobby or sport – wherever we achieved success it was just a great feeling. We want to repeat it as often as possible.
In our search for this repeat-craving life moment we ask ourselves: what positive feeling do we exactly experience when we achieve success?
To find this out we can make a simple test: imagine one of your successes and imagine you were all alone at that moment. You couldn’t show your success to anybody. What do you think? Would you still feel the same way?
Success is great for two reasons: 1: We are proud of ourselves for having achieved something we desired so much. 2: We want to get acknowledgment from others.
There is no real positive success feeling without getting esteem for it – getting esteem from others and from ourselves. Getting esteem is the point which makes success so desirable.
There is also another secret behind the connection of esteem and success. The more sure we are that we get esteem for our activities the calmer we become on our way to achievement of our goals which in turn attracts success for what we’re doing.
Napoleon Hill is the author you want to read when it’s about esteem and success. The following book is a classic in its field.
