Significance is Lasting in the Name of Success
Success may be great, but success is fleeting. Significance is everlasting
The goal in most of the people belonging to the current society happens to be achieving success. Success in the form of wealth, power, control, and status are some of the most common factors that humans long for. Even though it is correct to some extent in the materialistic world, these things do not ensure attaining improvement in your life and the well-being of those who surround you. It is rather prudent to select this other side in life which offers lasting compassion and satisfaction – a life filled with significance.
Stop chasing Success and Start Seeking Significance
Human beings, blessed with the gift of thinking, must apply their minds to attaining a status of being able to help others, co-exist in an empathetic and responsible manner. One has to realize that the purpose of human life is not to achieve happiness and ephemeral joy—it is rather being enlightened with the need for standing for something, leading co-habitants toward a more meaningful life and succeeding in making a difference. This is what can be achieved by gaining significance in life.
Significance is the Real Success that Lasts
Financial and administrative successes are some of the most potent motivators in human life in the present day. They are seen to control a major portion of people’s lives. In the pursuit of such materialistic goals, morality and relationships are spoilt quite often. The sad thing is, these so-called successes end in no time. The greater call in life is significance that doesn’t fade away so quickly as such joys. Significance, when earned through the only route—adopting modesty and selflessness—lasts for a far longer period.
The Enduring Success is Significance Only
For different people, there are specific visions about success, these notions keep changing over time and depending on personal needs. Happiness for one need not always mean the same for another – humans are born and brought up with varied frames of minds and unique interests. But what matters centrally, what counts most crucial for every single member in the species is a sustained accomplishment of all desired things in an enduring manner. This can only be achieved through significance.
Change the rules of the game – Pursue Significance instead of Success: Success will follow you
Some of the Limitations of Success:
- Success fluctuates along with economy: Financial success depends on economy that is unpredictable
- Success lasts only as long as you last: As the saying goes, you are not going to carry any possessions when you leave this world - all will be transferred to someone else
- You never have enough of Success: It is a never-ending story- the more you gain, the more you seek-in terms of materialistic success
Benefits of Significance

- Significance is a Virtue that Passes on: The one vital quality of significance is that it impacts others—one person is capable of positively changing another
- Significance is Soul-filling: Giving the satisfaction and confidence that you have lived meaningfully and valuably, significance quenches our inner thirst
""Life is short. Man’s sole and most wanted need in life is to leave his footprints even after he departs from this world. Attaining significance that lasts and lasts is the one true way of achieving this."
