I’ve known my entire life that I’ve wanted to be successful and for some reason, everybody I grew up with, knew I would be too. There was a time early in my life though where I finally asked myself the question; “What is success”?
There’s a good chance you’re reading this because you’re curious about the real definition of success and the reality is, it means something completely different to everybody.
When I was in my late teens, I came across a definition of success that totally clicked, with me and crystalized exactly what success is.
American journalist, Christopher Morley said it best when he stated:
There is only one success- to be able to spend your life in your own way.
The magic of that statement is the reality that success is a very personal and individual thing. When asking yourself the question, What is success”? you need to take it a step further and ask yourself “What is my success”? or “What does success mean to me”?
Doing that, is the first critical and absolutely necessary step in working towards accomplishing your success. Because without a true definition of what your success is, it’s impossible to put together a plan and commit to that plan to become successful.
