The measurement of your success goes beyond work and business. When we get too tied up in measuring our success through what we do for a living, we can come crashing down if we're made redundant or business ceases.
Success is often talked about. It's one of those things that many people are striving for, but fear at same time. We talk about people and label them as successful. Yet success as a word is often without any real meaning for most people. Success is held up as something to aim for.
If you're chasing other people's versions of success, you're not likely to experience it yourself. You will only feel and be successful when you do it your own way. The first step towards real success is to define success for yourself. The dictionary defines 'success' as achievement of something desired, planned or attempted. Your definition will different from other people's. Success isn't an end result or a goal; it's a process and a journey to be enjoyed.
"There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way" - Christopher Morley
Success needs to be exciting and fill you with enthusiasm, not put you under undue pressure. Let your definition of success give you plenty of opportunities to celebrate. Your measure of success should challenge you, to really bring our your best rather than allow you to become complacent.
How will you know when you're successful? What is your own definition of success?
