What does success mean to you?
We all, in different ways, strive to be successful. That is a driving force in our lives. But, how many of us actually ever take the time to define what we really mean by success.
We can all recognize it in others, but what does it mean to ourselves.
I’d like you to take a short break from reading this and spend one minute – yes, just one minute – in writing down what you mean by being successful.
Not success as it applies to someone else, but success as you would apply it to yourself.
And before you start, don’t cheat yourself by writing something simplistic like ‘being happy’ or ‘being rich’ because my next question would then be ‘why?’
You need to take a few minutes and actually understand what your own definition is.
Simply complete the following;
Success for me means..
Did you do it? Was it difficult?
What is your definition of success, we all have a different definition, what does success mean to you?
“Success is not an accident!” – Paul B Evans
You see, when success is a vague concept, we all know in which direction it lies – it is somewhere ahead of us. But the road is shrouded in fog, and the pathway is twisty and treacherous.
We keep the hope alive that somewhere at the end of the journey things will get better for us – but for most, they don’t. The fog never lifts and the road never ends.
But if you took that minute I asked of you and honestly wrote down your own personal definition of what it would take for you to feel that you are a success, you have drawn a map. You have allowed the sun to burn off the fog.
When you know where you want to get to, planning the route becomes easy and fun.
“If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.” Laurence J. Peter.
Enjoy Your Success!
All the best
