Basically, if you make a lot of money and you’re filthy rich THEN you have reached success, right? Not necessarily. Did you notice that none of the above definitions mentioned wealth as the destination of success?
Success is about setting personal goals and putting effort and purpose into them to achieve them. Maybe one of your goals is related to money. That’s totally okay. But what if we forgot about everything we think we know about success and defined it as our own? I’ll start:
1. The accomplishment of finding joy in every situation and persevering 2. The ability to surround myself with people who make me happy and support me
3. Finding new ways to better myself (mentally, physically, emotionally, etc.)
4. Doing whatever the heck it is that makes me truly happy without caring what others think
Now it’s your turn!
Having your own definition of ‘success’ can help you build your confidence and set you on a trajectory to reach those goals of yours.
Take some time right now to write in the comments what your definition of success is.
