It really bugged me. I thought that I, of all people, having studied and learned so much over the past few years, should have a very clear and concise definition of what success means to ME.
I pondered this question for several days and came up with what I thought was nearest to what success meant to to me. I'm quite proud of what I ended up with and I think it is a testament to what I have learned. The answer is a million miles from where my mind was five years ago.
I'd like to share my answer and hope that it encourages others to consider what success really means to them.
Success to me is about being comfortable and grateful:
Comfortable with my lifestyle and grateful for what I have
Comfortable with my family and grateful for who they are
Comfortable with my business and grateful for my good fortune
Comfortable with my associates and grateful for their help and advice
Comfortable with myself and grateful for who I have become
I certainly haven't mastered all of those yet, but I think they are five very worthy goals.
