For me, success can be defined along the lines of "To have a healthy body, mind and a good lifestyle" or "To have a loving family and the money to live well" or even "To have financial freedom and to feel awesome on a daily basis".
Of course, how success is defined will be different for most people. There will obviously be the common values such as financial freedom and a good lifestyle but in general terms, it will be different.
As I said above, for me success is a range of things in different areas of my life. I want to have a good body, I want to be in good health, I want to have a clear mind and I wouldn't say no to some extra money in the savings. I will be truthful with you, at this present moment in time I am not achieving the level of success I would like in any of those areas of my life.
However, I am working on them! I have been getting my "butt" out of bed at early hours of the morning to go for a run and to practise some meditation. I have been putting in the extra hours to get some tasks checked off the list.
I am spending time throughout the day the way I would in my dream lifestyle. Sadly, for many that is not the case, I hear on a daily basis people tell me things like "Once I am successful I will start running" or "Once I am successful I will eat healthier".
That's some crazy talk there, I often reply with "Oh so once you are successful you will have more time for these things". Usually, they will say "Exactly!". Surely their version of success consists of lots of fun time and not that much work.
That's not correct, they are just making excuses! True success is not easy, it takes a lot of work and a lot of determination. Stop with the excuses!
"Stop delaying things till tomorrow and start living your dream lifestyle today! Because tomorrow never comes" by Unknown.
That quote hits the nail with the hammer! It's exactly right! If anything, when you are at your ideal level of success, you will have less time and more possible excuses!
