Buffett : Love is the Greatest Measure of Success

Drop file here to send
The most important lesson and"the ultimate test" of a life well-lived has nothing to do with money and everything to do with the most powerful emotion a human being can feel: love. As the third richest person in the world and nearing 90 years of age, Buffett has lived and continues to live what he preaches with his commitment to philanthropy, like the Giving Pledge, which invites the richest people on the planet to pledge a big chunk of their wealth to charitable causes. https://www.inc.com/marcel-schwantes/warren-buffett-says-it-doesnt-matter-how-rich-you-are-without-this-1-thing-your-life-is-a-disaster.html

Following in Buffett's footsteps, there are a few ways in which one can put this practical kind of love into action such as 1) Thinking and acting selflessly without expecting anything in return 2) Choosing a culture of love and 3) Doing what you love. According to Buffet, the most successful people in business are those that are doing what they love

How would you define success, and how does one attain it?

Success is when your dream comes true .
Success is when your parents feel proud to have you as their child.
Success is when you are fully satisfied with the job you have.
Success is when you get six digit salary

Success in life could be measured as continued expansion of peace of mind and the striving to realize our self-made vision of fulfillment.

That’s my personal understanding of the concept of “success”. And it breathes life into my theory on what leaders are inherently responsible for – the amplification of success of the individual people in my organization.

Success to me is to find and fully live your purpose in life, and to leave an enduring legacy of having made a difference in the world.

Struggles are a part and parcel of life. You have two choices. First, to run away from them and live a mediocre life and second, to go through them and live a life that you dreamed.

Always remember, “The river cuts through a rock, not because of its power, but because of its perseverance”.

I agree with Buffet about doing what you love, I feel that my life is successful if I can live each day with a positive outlook, have a feeling of contentment with my circumstances, have balance in all the important areas of my life, and have the time and resources to pursue what I am passionate about.

There's no definition for success, it's purely subjective

I agree... coming from various backgrounds and circumstances, there is no benchmark or standard. If we were to define it, we'd be disregarding some people's small victories which are in essence, success.

You may have a big bank balance, a lot of money. But, if you can’t smile, if you are tensed, upset and angry, would you call such a person successful?

For most people, success is defined by financial standing.

Often, people spend half of their health to gain their wealth. Then they spend half their wealth, to gain back their health (which does not come). This is not a sign of success

To an extent, success can be considered a state of mind and there for short lived. you will be successful in a given moment but the very next moment you will be again struggling to achieve it. It is a journey of up and downs.

Lets look at this objectively. Let us say you have a dream to be a millionaire by the age of 30, and you make it, Do you think it will make you happy? In most cases what you will want is to make 10 million by the time you are 40. So what happened here is that, you tried to hit a moving target, and your definition for success changed. It is not anyone's fault, It is how the human mind works.
