Oct 15, 2012 - How do you view achievement? What does achievement mean to you? When do you feel that you have achieved what you have set out to do? Is it a measurement you have determined based on what you have accomplished before or a measurement based on what others have accomplished? Are you setting your standards based on what others expect, or have you determined standards of which you expect of yourself? Does success associated with achievement for you come with awards, rewards and material gains or does it come with an inner state of satisfaction in knowing that you are making a real difference and bringing real value as a result of your efforts?
Take an MM&I Moment to understand what success and achievement really means to you. Then also take this same moment to understand what your success and achievement can mean for others. Understanding both will help you better know the real impact you are making that can multiply your achievement into success beyond you and for others in powerful ways. Success for self-motivation results in a continuous treadmill of self-doubt and self-depreciation. Success and achievement focused on creating value and making something better for others brings a rally of support and belief in what you are doing that propels you and everyone around you into accomplishing more.
