Successful People Judge Themself On This To Determine Their Success
Success is the higher level knowing that in this moment, there is nowhere else you would rather be.
Success isn’t having tens of thousands of dollars in a bank account.
Success isn’t having a diamond ring on your finger.
Success isn’t consistent travel.
If you have $50,000 in your bank account, but you come home distraught from eight hours of doing something you don’t like, is that really success?
Does a $100,000 diamond ring patch the holes of a unhealthy relationship and give you the feeling of complete comfort and ease within the four walls of your home?
Will you really find happiness by traveling the world for three years, or will you find a disconnect from your relationships, an overwhelm from spiked growth and an exhaustion from meeting and saying goodbye to so many people?
Three months ago, after three consistent months of travel, there was nowhere else I’d rather be but home with my family and particularly my sister who just had her second baby.
I knew that in those moments, feeling successful meant that I was being a good sister and supportive aunt to my new niece.
Every few months the place that I feel drawn to changes. As I’ve spent three months home with my family and friends, I know it’s time to leave. To stay longer would impede on my growth and plateau my personal and business development.
Now, it’s time to focus on My Writing Library and ghostwriting for my clients, while being around other people building their own businesses.
I don’t want to be doing anything else but growing my two businesses, in an environment that is a catalyst to my personal and business growth.
Right now, this is where I am meant to be.
And there is no other plan I would say yes to.
Because success is knowing that I have put myself exactly where I need to be for what I’m trying to pursue right now, and the happiness that comes from that knowing is making these few months the absolute best of my life.
Success is knowing you are doing the right thing, and you are planning for the next right thing.
And then the next, and the next.
Because our what would make us successful in that moment changes as the events of our life flow.
But our knowing of where we need to be to feel successful doesn’t.
