To experience true SUCCESS on your terms, you must first create your own, authentic definition of what success means to you. Once your mind has conceive your personal perception of success and your spirit has embraced it, then you can move forward to achieve life or business success.
When defining success, you will want to consider your core values and what is important to you in various areas of your life. This may require you to take some time and actually search your innermost being, so that you are completely honest with yourself about what is paramount to you. The time spent laying the foundation for your success will help you gain clarity on what it is you actually want to accomplish. This is crucial to your success, because if you don’t know definitively, what it is that you want or what it is that you want looks like, then you won’t know when you’ve obtained it.
While you are doing some soul searching in defining your success, you will without a doubt be able to answer another essential question to arrive at your place of success. That is the question of why? Why will you do what it’s going to take for you to do to achieve your success. Will it be to leave a legacy? Will it be for a spouse, children or some other relationship driven purpose? The answer to your why is what will keep you going when you want to give up. So be sure to know your why when determining what success is to you.
Once you have formalized success by defining it on your terms, it’s time for you to nail it down and illustrate it. Exemplify your definition of success wherever you go. Allow success to spill out of you with the words you speak. Keep your definition of success in view so that it is as strong every day as it was the day you conceive it. This will empower you to successfully LIVE IT!
