Traditionally success has been defined by your income level, the house and neighbourhood you live in, the car you drive, whether you have an office at work and your own carpark.
But is that what real success means to you?
Because here's the thing, how you define success will have a big impact on you and how you live and work. It's also going to impact on your relationships and health. So, it's well worth taking a look at, isn't it?
To be successful...
Are you working long hours, holding yourself to impossibly high standards and constantly pushing hard? You tell yourself it's okay because it's helping you get ahead, helping you achieve success.
But it's exhausting, right?
While living and working that way may bring some success, it's not likely to be real, sustainable success. There might be a fleeting sense of satisfaction but stress, overwhelm, poor health, broken relationships, burnout and so on, linger longer.
What does real success mean to you?
Part of my definition of success includes doing the work that I love with people I want to work with and in the way that I want to do it, to be purpose and soul led, daily walks in nature, time to write each day and there's more.
Now it's your turn. How do you define success?
Don't judge or censor your thoughts, simply write down what success means to you. And remember, it doesn't need to make sense to anyone else, this is about YOU and how you define success.
I'd love to hear from you. Let me know how you define success.
