What does “SUCCESS” mean to you?
I love the concept of personal responsibility in our lives. I fully believe that each of us is responsible for what happens or more accurately, how we act and react to what happens in our lives. This also applies to defining what success means to us personally and how that success looks in our lives. This is a challenge that my clients, who are often very successful professionals, face. They wrestle with themselves over others’ definition of them as being successful or “having it all”. They sometimes feel guilty for feeling discontment. The fact that everyone in their environment tells them how successful they are, makes people doubt that they have a right to adapt their definition of success to be more aligned with who they truly are.
I often ask the question, “How does it serve you, if everyone loves your life, EXCEPT YOU?!”
It’s your life, your happiness, your success that are at stake and it is your responsibility (and your privilege) to define what that looks like in your life and to make it happen!
