Success Defined

Today is Monday so we are talking about personal growth.  As a small business owner or operator, it is imperative that you are continually growing and stretching yourself. 

Listen to the same content in my 5 minute Vlog teaching or continue reading below.

As the leader of your organization your team is looking to you to set the tone for what it means to grow personally. 

Over the next few months I am going to share some success principles that will help you grow in the area of relationships, equipping others, your attitude and leadership.  I want you to grow personally in all four of these areas, because if you do you will be successful in whatever industry you are in. 

So, let’s first define success.

Success is _______________ (You fill in the blank.) 

Success is really whatever you define it to be.  Success is as different as people are.  Sure, a theme of success is fame and fortune.  Many people desire those two things, but a whole bunch of people couldn’t care less about fame and fortune.  So, what about being respected by friends and family.   Great desire, but not necessarily the definition of success for some. 

You see success is really how you define it. 

So how do you define it?

Let me help you out here:

Success is knowing your purpose. What on earth am I here for?

Success is growing to your full potential. Fully expressing what you were put on earth to do.

Success is sowing seeds that benefit others. Is what you are doing adding value to those around you?

Lifes most persistent and urgent questions is, “What are you doing for others”?
— Martin Luther King Jr.

Take some time and write down your definition of success.  How do you define success?  Tell me in the comments below!
