Answer to defining success
A question that I have struggled with for some time is how
to define being successful. This question was presented to me
by my friend while I was attending the University of Virginia in 2005.

At that point, I thought it was a silly question. Being successful
meant measuring it by financial measure. In other words, how
much money a person had.

Then I grew up.

The answer really started to bother me.

I was struggling with that notion: To measure success, you would
need to measure the worth of a person’s bank account. Could
that really be it?

Coupled with my faith in Islam, I realized that I was struggling with
it because that was not the right answer. As I continued to thrive
professionally, I realized that there was more to life than that.

So what happened?

Well, I struggled with it and now 10 years later, I feel like I’m
getting an answer to it.

Success is defined by how well you do something that you put
your mind and efforts toward.

That’s it.

It is how well you perfect that art of whatever you are doing.

For example, take Jiro Ono. He is the owner of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a three-Michelin-starred Japanese sushi restaurant in Ginza, Chūō, Tokyo. Getting a reservation for his little
restaurant requires a very long wait. I watched a documentary on him “Jiro Dreams
of Sushi” and I began to realize why he was so successful.

It was in his art.

He is really good at combining flavors and orchestrating a meal so that it
is as fine-tuned as the best musical orchestra in the world.

Jiro sought perfection in his work.

Another example: Michael Jordan. Someone that just about everyone
in the world knows and recognizes his Jump Man label.

Why was he so successful?

It was his tenacity to be the best in basketball.

Jordan put his mind and heart and soul into his practice.

That’s why he became a success.

Success isn’t defined purely by money. Money can be a factor, but
that’s not how you define success.

Success is defined by how well you do something that you put
your mind and efforts toward.

That’s it.
