How do YOU define Success?


At some point in your life, you’ve probably asked yourself this question: what does it mean to be successful? For some people, success means having lots of money. For others, success means raising happy children or spending time with family members. And for still others, success means landing that next big promotion at work! But no matter how you define it, there’s one thing we can all agree on: being successful is important. It’s important because it gives us a sense of accomplishment and drives us to continue working hard at whatever goals we may have set for ourselves. So today we’re going over how exactly you can define your own definition of success—but first let’s get started with some basics about what makes someone “successful” in the first place

What does it mean to you?

It can be hard to define success for yourself, but it’s a good idea to start by thinking about what your values and beliefs are. What does success mean to you? Is it having a lot of money, or being able to work from home? Do you define success as getting married and starting a family, or traveling around the world with friends?

The next thing is considering how others view success–especially those closest to you: family members, friends, coworkers and so on. The more people who are involved in this conversation about defining success for themselves (or for others), the better! This will help keep things balanced and give everyone an opportunity share their opinions without feeling pressured by someone else’s definition of success being imposed upon them without asking first if they agree with those terms or not!

Do you have a goal?

You need to have a goal to know when you are successful.

It’s not enough just to set a goal, though; you also need to take action. You can’t do anything without a goal!

Make sure that your goals are clear and measurable so that you can measure your progress along the way towards achieving them (and know when it’s time for celebration).

Are you taking steps toward your goal?

If you’re not sure where to start, it can be helpful to think about what you want. Ask yourself: What is success?

  • Is it financial freedom?
  • Is it peace of mind?
  • Is it health and happiness with friends and family?

If your goal is a good one, then take small steps toward making it happen. Focus on the process and enjoy the journey, rather than getting hung up on outcomes or worrying about how long things will take (or if they’ll work out at all). Don’t be afraid of asking for help when needed–we’re all in this together! And if something doesn’t work out as planned along the way, don’t give up!

Where are you at right now?

So, you’re feeling pretty good about life. You’ve got a job, maybe even a career. You’ve got friends and family who love you and support you. You’ve got that partner who keeps things interesting, but also understands when it’s time to relax and watch Netflix in bed together.

You’re doing great! But what happens when things start going wrong? What happens if your boss starts giving you more work than can be done in 40 hours per week? Or if someone close to you passes away unexpectedly? Or if something else comes along that makes life harder than usual–like getting laid off from work or having an accident while on vacation?

It’s easy when everything is going well: we can look back fondly on those times with good memories and feel confident about our current situation (even though there will probably always be some room for improvement). But when things change or fall apart around us, it becomes difficult for our brains not only because we’re thrown off balance by these changes but also because our perception of “success” shifts dramatically overnight–and sometimes even faster than that!

Success is whatever you want it to be!

So, what does success mean to you? Is it about money and fame, or does it have more to do with living your best life. For me, success means being happy and content with the choices I’ve made in my life so far. It’s about knowing that each day was lived fully–to its fullest potential!


So, what does success mean to you? If you’re not sure yet, that’s okay. Take some time to think about it and write down your answers in a journal or on scrap paper. You can even share your thoughts with others who have different perspectives than yours! Remember that there is no right or wrong answer when it comes down to what success means for each person–it all depends on how they define themselves and their goals in life.
