Many people believe that success is beating someone at something. Selling more than someone. Having more than the next person. Running faster than the person next to you. I am here to tell you that these are not true success. Success is not being better than the next person, it's about being better than yourself. What other people are doing is no measure of our success. Some people may run marathons every Tuesday but the first time you run three miles you are successful. Each day, each time you attempt something new, something you never have done you become a success. The only way to fail is to not try. Continuously attempting to improve yourself...that is being a success. Keep track of your workouts. Over time, you should strive to increase the weights you lift. Extend the distance you run or ride or swim. Improve on your times, not on the times of the people around you. Work on improvement of yourself on a daily basis. Are you moving toward your goals or away from them? Knowing the answer to that is what will make you a success.
