When you base your idea of success off of what you think it should be rather than what you really want for yourself, is that really success for you? I think it’s important to create your own definition, because that’s what we should be reaching for – not somebody else’s idea of success.
Different people will have different definitions, and we shouldn’t impose our ideas on someone else, or let theirs impact our own. For me, success right now is being happy with where I am, liking what I do every day (even if some days are difficult), trusting that I am on the right path, and enjoying the moment and season that I’m in. What’s important is to be confident in where you are, and not letting someone else’s achievements or judgements cloud your happiness.
Game Plan: Create your own definition of success. What does success mean to you?
