Define Success in Your Own Words
Or you might need some famous quotations from successful people to help you give the meaning of your own success.
Here are my top ten favorite success quotes:
“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”–Winston Churchill
“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” –Maya Angelou
“Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed.” –Abraham Lincoln
“As long as you’re going to be thinking anyway, think big.” –Donald Trump
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” –Benjamin Franklin
“If you are going to fear anything fear success. Think about what you are doing and when you succeed what life you will have” –Brandon Chalmers
“Success is not so much what we have, as it is what we are.” –Jim Rohn
“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.” –Henry David Thoreau
“Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.” –Nelson Mandela
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”— Michael Jordan
So, now that you have those insights from successful people on how they think of success you should also understand how success means to you.
You have got to be able to define success and describe it in clear words before you can be and feel successful. It would be a shame to go through your career, your business and the rest of your life and miss all the success you are creating along the way if you are too busy chasing the wrong definition.
When we are not clear about our own definition of success or a vague understanding on how to achieve it, we get confused easily and lose direction along the way. And if we follow some role model and just can’t attain their definition of success, so then we feel bad and compare our self. We feel small. We feel insignificant. We feel even like a failure.
Defining success in your own words should be one of the first steps in any personal development journey. You need to clearly give the meaning of how success means to you.
When we are absolutely clear on our definition of success, we feel good – and feeling good reflect all positive energy. We feel empowered. We feel strong. We feel in charge. We feel happy. We feel beautiful. We feel fulfilled.
At this moment take time to realize and dig deep down inside what SUCCESS really means to you. And remember this will shape what your future will BE.
