Success – Find Your Own Definition

posted in: Freedom Philosophy | 10

Success… Such a complicated word. You want to be successful, don’t you? You’ve probably spent a great deal of time achieving some level accomplishment, and that’s great! But the real question is whose success are you really achieving? Other people’s? Or Yours?

We’ve all felt the pressure of others’ expectations of us. I certainly have. And while people mean well, it is often hard for them to understand that their idea of accomplishment for you isn’t necessarily your idea of success. I learned years ago – when I walked away from corporate life – the joy, pleasure, and true sense of satisfaction that comes with discovering your own definition of success. It was life-changing.

I followed my own path to success. Not my colleagues’, my family’s, or society’s. My own definition. My own way. Now here I am – a blogger, a YouTuber, and an author hoping to help you find your own definition of success. Your definition doesn’t necessarily have to be different than your friends’ and family’s, or even society’s, but it’s critical to make sure you are truly going after your idea of success. So how do you pin that down?

How To Find Your Own Path To Success

That’s what we explore in my latest video on The Freedom Strategy. And it really is Step 1 so don’t skip it! You’ve gotta start somewhere! Do this step and you’ll be well on your way to finding and defining your own path. You’ll be glad you did! So grab a pen and paper (no, you don’t really have to take notes, but it might be a good idea!)

Now you’re on your way! You’re taking the first step to find your own path to success! Yay you!! (Don’t forget to check out how to fund your path to Freedom here.)

    It took me awhile to find my own sense of success, but boy was it worth it!

    Great tips on writing down your goals so you can really focus on what’s important to you. I liked the video.

      Thanks Carrie! Yes, writing these things down really does help me too!

    THIS! I needed to read this today and remind myself to focus on my own vision of success, not what other’s think my success is to be. I agree, being able to pull away from other’s perception and views on what my path is pertinent in moving forward to reaching our goals. Thank you!

      Yes!! Never lose track of what makes YOU happy!! Follow your own path, even if that means you need to buck the system! #BuckIt

    This is so true! I think my first realization of “I’m going to do me” was when I was getting ready to get out of the Navy. I learned that just because I may be good at something, and that talent may make other people happy, it’s not worth it if it doesn’t make me happy! I appreciate the lessons that the military taught me, but I don’t want to work just to meet other people’s expectations. I have to find what my passion is and strive towards making that my success story, whatever that may be.

      That is so great that you already learned this lesson. Some people go a lifetime and never figure that out. Good for you!!
