how do you define success?

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
― Winston S. Churchill

What is success?

What does success for you look like?   Have you taken the time to define what success is for you?   It could be success at home, at work, in the community or success as a friend.   What is your measure for success in life?

Perhaps it starts with the idea of your personal vision.   What are you working towards?  What are your goals?  Are those goals motivating you to higher levels of personal and professional performance?

You can think of success in terms of your personal brand, what you stand for and who you are.   Does your personal brand shine?  When I work with people who are looking for a new career path many of them have no idea of what their personal brand is.   If they are asked how they are viewed by others many just don’t know.  If they are asked what their key contribution was they aren’t really sure.  If your personal brand is a success then what does it look like?  How do you describe it?

How is your life making a difference?   It doesn’t have to be some monumental outcome, but there should be something that you’ve done that has made a difference.   What have you done that has made a difference?  Think about it.

If you feel you have reached some level of success, are you content?  Are you at peace with where you are in life?   If not, why not?  If yes, then why?  What has success enabled you to feel or do?

What has been your greatest success?  What will be your next success?
