Purely Dominica

Everyday of our lives the media have led us to think that success is made up of the greatness characterized by fame, popularity, riches and the achievement of heroic acts. And the bad thing about it is young people are most vulnerable to this type of thinking.


The triumphant image of people who have made it successful in life that is not only the best in their field, company or country, but has been made famous and rich through their success, makes an attractive and convincing image.

I mean what person would not want to imitate their favorite heroes who at their same time have more money than they will ever need, and in addition, receive continuous praise and approval.

Are people who reach this type of status living picture of success? Well … yes, and no.

Yes, because achieving victory, fame, and riches in, or because of, hard work is not a bad thing.

Yes, because triumph in any activity showcases the effort, dedication, and physical focus on a specific goal, one of the special abilities that we have as humans.

No, because success in expected to be definitive, permanent and transcendental.

In other words, success in internal and essential. It is life that matters not external circumstances. True success is measured at the end of our existence and not as a function of wealth or popularity that we many have been able to achieve. It is measured by our personal values, our character.
