Defining Success

July 24th, 2017

For motivation Monday, I thought it would be good to talk about SUCCESS. Just what is success?  There are lots of opinions on success. Here are my thoughts.

I think success is how you define yourself and being ok with yourself. Success lies within your self-esteem and knowing that you are capable and worthy. It is accepting your uniqueness as an individual. Success is living within your identity and your character.

It is essential that you see the strength and courage of your identity and are comfortable that you have done your best. You have faced adversity and maintained control over your mind, thoughts, and how you feel. Success is making your own decisions based on how you think and feel about yourself.

Success is forgetting the past and looking to the future. Success is the journey to who you want to be, and creating your own identity. It begins with a dream that becomes your vision and your mission. This is how you create success. How do I get there? Well, as they say, sometimes all it takes is a leap of faith.

Success starts with a dream and committing to fulfilling that dream. Commitment requires that you have a process to get there. Trust in getting out of your own way and having confidence in your ability. Know that you will succeed. The process is doing what needs to be done and when it needs to be done.

Dreams are what you want to be, who you want to be, and where you want to be. The key to dreams is having them. Let your mind do what it can do and follow your dream. Don’t let other people’s thoughts and opinions take you off your track on where you want to go. Ask questions, listen, and then reach your own conclusions.

Commit to trusting the process and the never-ending pursuit of improvement. Turn your dreams into reality and SUCCESS!
