Success isn't equated in the amount of dollars you earn or kilograms that stare back at you on the scales. It's not about how many friends you can rely on when you need that extra bit of support. Even still, it is not about your happiness. Really, it's a combination of all these things and so much more. Success is relative to you, and it's defined by your own standards and goals. One's life satisfaction says a lot about their overall 'success'. Finance, relationships, health, livelihood, the list can go on and on...but we need a balance of each of these areas in our life if we are to be a true success. The person with all the money in the world and no friends is not what we would determine to be successful. Yet the social butterfly that's living pay check to pay check is also not a shining beacon of what society would determine as a success.
You can have your cake and eat it too. It's called striking a balance. People who are in sync with themselves and the world around them, who devote their time and energy into an array of areas in their lives, are what I would determine as being successful. Yet, as I said, success is truly a relative phenomenon. Ask yourself, do you feel successful. How can you be more successful in your life? Do you need to physically alter areas of your life, or is it more of a mindset shift that you have to make. Dedicate this week to being focused on how each area of your life can contribute to you as being nothing but a success, because the only person stopping you from determining whether you are a success, or not, is yourself!
