Defining Your LifeWritten by Jim M. Allen
What is life? What does it mean to be a success? What is winning?
Why all questions?
Because it's important for you to know answers. - Not somebody else's answers. Not Philosophy 101 textbook answers. And, of course, looking up definitions in Webster's doesn't count. The important answers to these questions, best ones, are your answers, your definitions. When you have your answers to these questions you also have a framework, a foundation, for your life and what you do with it. Answering these questions helps you create a benchmark for determining whether or not you are being true to your self and really doing things that bring you joy. If you don't decide that "Success = XX" then how do you know if you're successful? If don't decide that "Life is XXXX", how do you know if you're really living?
