Define What Success Means
I’m a big believer in how you start your day determines your success.
But what is Success?
It can mean different things to different people.
One persons interpretation of success will look completely different to the next.
This is how The Oxford Dictionary define what success means:
success:the fact of becoming rich or famous or of getting a high social position
I don’t particularly like this definition, it’s not how I determine success to be FOR ME
While it’s important that I keep improving my skills as a chiropractor so that I can become great at what I do, the real success is seeing the positive results and lifestyle changes in each individual who walks through my door.
Success for me means;
…being a better version of myself than I was yesterday.
…getting to spend valuable time with my family
…having the time and the means to travel and see the world
Now for YOU;
Define what success means;
Take time to figure out what success means to you, is it simply being happy (how will you know when you are happy, what will it look like?) Is it about having a good relationship with your loved ones (what does that look like?) Ask yourself the hard questions.
Whatever it is, know what it is.
Without a bench mark you are forever chasing your tail.
Perhaps you’re chasing someone else’s definition of success?
As Jim Rohn said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”
Know what success means to you but remember to stop every now and then to see how far you’ve come.
What has the ‘You’ now achieved that the ‘You’ 12 months, 6 months or 2 weeks ago could only have dreamed of?
Measure how far you’ve come and celebrate it!
