This is a discussion on What does success mean to ENFP? within the ENFP Forum - The Inspirers forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; Originally Posted by huiwcleon I just realized I've never considered being happy in my definition of success. How come I ...
Oh and 99% of the time I get to live in accordance with my values. My company does good work and I have been helping and inspiring people all over the place. Now that I'm happy again everyone shows me where they need help. I love it. Last thursday I got to comfort one young girl who was going through a tough breakup, and help another guy who's in love with her but it's going nowhere and is completely obvious to everyone. He seemed a lot happier after our 2 hour conversation.
- getting what I want
- doing what I want, when I want to, on my terms
- working from anywhere in the world whenever I want
- paying someone else to do all of the tasks I don't enjoy (laundry, cleaning, cooking, bills, etc)
- not having any obligation to anyone, ever
Success in an alternative universe may have meant something very different to me. Perhaps a universe where my parents die in a car crash and I end up being adopted by really loving people. A reality where I am me, except I'm not as fucked up.
To be quite frank what I want and what I believe success means are totally different.
The question should be "When you reach your last moment... were you successful, why or why not?"
Obtaining success isn't really a thing that you say "SUCCESS!!!" to, at least not for ENFP's, if that were the case then I am already successful!
So to the new question. To answer yes I'd have to be able to say that I left something of great value behind. How great? As great a thing as I feel I could have possibly left considering all things.
Like offspring that are awesomer then I am and will also want to leave something greater then themselves (like even more awesome offspring) and that good will come of it all.
Happiness... duh lol
what make one happy has nothing to do with type though
