Paying Your Rent And Owning A Car Are Not Signs Of Success by AussiePlayboy(m): 9:32pm On Apr 15
I've come to notice a common misconception about many people, especially the ladies and some guys who dont know better and think that owing a car and paying rent for an accommodation are signs of success.
.
I find it appalling, really appalling. Thankfully, at 23, I bought my first car and moved out of my parents place and a year after, I still totally don't consider myself close to successful. I even feel like there is a lot I am not doing with my life.
I presently work in a top multinational company(outside Africa) and get paid flights and accommodation(even at the moment) in the best hotels in the world, yet I often see it like I have seen it all, and hence, its not true success. I am lucky, like really lucky to experience this at an early age and hence it has helped me understand what matters life.
I have seen so called "big men" loose everything in a flip of a second, I have seen what supposedly rich people go through and I sometimes marvel when I hear phrases like. "He owns a car and affords a 2/3 bedroom flat" so he is successful. Nawa o. My people nawa o.
Flat that one mistake at work or simply low turnovers beyond your control, and there is no difference between you and the guy carrying file on the street looking for job. Or car you have to keep that job to maintain? What about those in business depending on just one main client who they have to kiss their feet to ensure bills are being paid, yet brag. No matter how fine the apartment is, its still a liability to maintain, and you ll be kicked out, along whatever you put in there the moment you stop keeping the landlord quiet.
Also, its even funny how people see car as a luxury. Car is not a luxury. Having a car is just a basic necessity.
Nowadays, I flip through social media, and don't get moved. I just see people faking out their lives, with the temporary illusion of happiness, while I critically thing of the real things that matter. Too many people living hand to mouth, waiting for the next paycheck to maintain that lifestyle. That's not freedom to me. That's not even success

Draw your ears boy and girls.... Having a car with paying for a flat is NOT success. Heck, its not even a luxury.

I get your point bro.


Life nah in stages and dreams are bigger than dreams!


What is success to me may not be success to you and what counts for you may not mean anything to me.

But the bottom line is that, people should stop leaving a fake life cuz it makes them live under pressure to 'perform' or live up to some expectations.

Ok fair enough...

So what is true success?

Honestly I feel there are varying levels of success with different measurements... So to you it might not be but maybe that person worked extremely hard to buy that car or house and for them that is their measure undecided .... Honestly as long as it's not on credit.

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way - Robert Kiyosaki


So it varies... Some desires are not as strong as others
