Success is up to you, but what Is Success for you?


Most people want to be successful. Do you? I’m sure you do.

But do you even know what success would look like for you?

The number-one reason most people don’t succeed is that they don’t take the time to define what they want.

It is essential if you are to enjoy a life of ‘success’ then you have to know exactly what you want.

What does success look like or feel like to you? If you don’t know, you aren’t going to achieve it.

Most of us will go through our lives keeping busy, but never really determining exactly what success would ‘look like.’

Success means different things to different people. It would be best to determine what makes you feel successful in life because that will help guide your decisions on spending your time and energy in the right places. For example, success might mean being a successful business owner or making a lot of money, but for others, success may be spending time doing something they love, spending their time with the people they love, travelling the world or finding true happiness.

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Albert Schweitzer

It’s essential to come up with your personal definition of success. Try asking yourself some questions to see what success means to you.

  • What are the things and activities that make me happy?
  • What things make me feel inspired and fulfilled?
  • What areas in life do I excel at?
  • What legacy do I want to leave?
  • Is there anybody I look up to?
  • What things matter to me the most?

There is no one general definition for success. The answer to these questions will help you consider what success means to you. True success means doing the things that make you energized and engaged every time.

If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing. Will Rogers

To achieve success you must create a clear life vision of what you want to be in the upcoming years. All you need is to visualize the lifestyle you dream of having, even if it seems outlandish or impossible. A life vision is what you’d consider your ultimate dream, a vision of life as it should be. Visioning the future and vision mapping will help you create the most fulfilling path to the life you truly want. A life vision will help you get more clarity for your future and help you live your life more intentionally. If you’re wanting more out of life creating a vision of the future is a must.

Create a vision for all meaningful areas of your life You don’t need to figure out every detail of your entire life down to the flower arrangements at your funeral. You just need enough of a vision to give you a little more direction. You need to revisit this vision often.

To give you some very simple instructions of how to do this, transport yourself to some time far in the future and think about what kind of person you want to become, what do you want to achieve and how do you want to be known and remembered. This exercise gives you a general feel for how you want your future to play out. Imagine you are at a special day sometime in the future. See your day play out from wake up to bedtime. Where are you? Who are you with? What are you doing? Where do you go? What’s around you? See it all!
