I’ve been thinking about this since last Friday, when it was a topic at The Collaborative. “What is your definition of success?”
Webster’s Dictionary defines success as follows:
Definition of SUCCESS
2 a : degree or measure of succeeding
b : favorable or desired outcome; also : the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence
3: one that succeeds
Is this the definition that we measure our personal success by? I’m not really sure that I do. When I think about my personal success, I think about how I feel. How others around me feel. I used to measure success as accomplishments of or toward an outcome. But that wasn’t a very fulfilling measure. Especially when in life sometimes those outcomes don’t always come to fruition, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t still successful.
Therefore, I’ve created my own personal definition of success:
My Definition of SUCCESS
1: Living life on purpose.
2: Positively impacting the lives of those around me.
3: Being who I am without fearing if that isn’t good enough for someone else.
