What is Success - to You?

Do you want to be successful? Of course you do. Everyone does. But the reason most people never actually reach that goal is that the “success” they long for is ill-defined. It is a good term when dealing with principles, but it falls sort when applied to the realities of our lives. The only real success is “specific” success – success that has specific and measurable ends.

What does success look like to you? Before you can be successful, you have to answer that question – otherwise you will never know when you have arrived. Visualize success. Think through the progression of steps to get there. Then begin working on step one. Then step two. Then step three. Never give up until you’ve reached your vision. Then, and only then, will you know you’ve become a success.
