We all come from different backgrounds with unique upbringings, challenges and opportunities. Despite that, happy and successful people can be found in all areas of the world. Why is it that some people are more successful at being happy than others?
Firstly, success is defined differently by each individual. The first thing is to know what success means to you. Does success mean having a job that you’re passionate about? Having a family? Living in a nice home? Having time to travel? Making a million dollars? Spending lots of time outdoors?
What is your definition of success? Without knowing what that is to you, how will you know if you reach your goal?
Once you’ve spent some time on defining your success, next, it’s time to get curious. What areas of your life currently need more work? Relationships, finances, spirituality, health? It’s not a time to say all the things you think you “should” be doing. It is simply an opportunity to reflect and evaluate where you are versus where you want to be.
Once you’ve identified an area to start from, figure out 1 thing you could do to take you closer to your success.
Take action towards your successful life right now. Remember to measure your success by what is important to you and not by comparing yourself to those around you. It is also important to celebrate when you take steps towards your goal.
Include success in all areas of your life and don’t just define it by finances. Life's a journey, not a destination. Having trouble figuring out your successes? Come to our advanced workshop.
