What does success mean to me?
Honestly if I was to answer this five years ago the answer would be very different than the one then I am writing today.
In my opinion, success is meeting your own goals that align with your personal passions, what you are good at, and your beliefs. It is about the way you make a difference in the world.
It is not what everyone else wants you to do, no matter what social media says.
Goals are dreams with a strategic plan.
Success if feeling peace with your life and how it is constructed is success no matter what that looks like for you. Work life balance is a lie that is created to make people feel guilty for how they live their lives. When people feel inadequate it is much easier to control them. Advertisers prey on this concept.
Success in my career a couple years ago would have meant lots of travel and hours at work.
Now? I would love to work from home and limit travel to mostly family trips. I limit trips from the house as much as possible.
Here are my two SUCCESS quotes:
All of our experiences make us who we are. Some of these events are within our control, and some are not. There is a point of “before and after” when you realize what is important to YOU and your life, and what is not. Then decisions start to be made, your life looks different, and the people in your life change.
Perception and mindset are important to how you view success. I love this quote above. Drive and how you approach situations is a big indicator of success. Not really luck.
I tag these FABULOUS bloggers!
