What determines success

June 20, 2011

There are a lot of opinions out there about what best defines a success. Having the most money, the best lifestyle, the most toys, the least toys, happiness, family, etc.

But those are all things one acquires after achieving so-called success. Right?

So what best determines success? Ignoring fear.

No matter your definition of success, it always takes change and forward movement to achieve it. You know the quote: “If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.”

To stop doing what you’re doing, and to start doing something else, something different, takes guts. Change is hard. And scary. And everyone – everyone – has some amount of fear related to making it.

It’s those that will move forward regardless of that fear that will actually begin to achieve something.

Allow the fear to keep you from taking action and…those definitions you have of success? They’re lovely, but they won’t be yours.

If you can step through the scariness, then you can move towards the change, and you can start making your definition of success a reality.
