What is Success?

“Success is a collection of problems solved.”  I.M. Pei

I don’t know about the rest of you out there but after yesterday, I felt drained and had to take a break from my normal creative activities. Maybe it’s the warmer weather and my bodies rejection of humidity. I shouldn’t feel the need to pant while I’m walking outside. The fact that I was also around a few people who weren’t in the greatest of moods probably didn’t help either. Their stress kind of drained me.

Sometimes, adults need nap time and I had to rest to re-energize. One glass of ice water and I was back at my keyboard. The other thing I do when I need a boost is look to other writers and I realized that it’s still Asian Pacific Heritage Month.

Today’s quote by Chinese-American architect, I.M. Pei, was something that I needed to hear and share with other people around me. You hear people talking about success all the time and often, it’s associated with wealth or money. But what really sets apart people we think are successful compared to others?

The answer is simple. Successful people have just solved more problems than those who haven’t reached that level. They spent time finding answers and solutions to questions that other people haven’t. If you ever feel frustrated, just remember today’s quote and never give up because you’re probably just one more step away from success.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
