March 26, 2012 – Does success seem elusive? What is your idea of success? Is this truly what you believe or has your definition of success been influenced by others and their beliefs? Do you feel you have reached success or that you still have a long way to go? Do you fear that once you achieve success, it may change you in a way that you don’t desire because of how you have seen success affect and influence others? No matter where you believe you are on your scale of success, the true measure of your success lies within you, and only you.
Take an MM&I Moment to differentiate between what you truly believe in your heart makes you a success in your life and work and what has been imposed upon you in some way, potentially skewing your idea of success. Define what success feels like for you. Define what success looks like for you. Define what success will enable you to do. Define how you can reward yourself and others. Don’t allow success to be a measure against everyone else. Allow it to be a measure of your own internal satisfaction, appreciation and knowing that you have lived life to its fullest, not only for yourself, but for others.
