What does success look like to you?
Success is the measure of achievements and accomplishments relating to satisfaction and happiness in a person’s life. When people talk about success, it’s usually associated with monetary and material wealth. In many ways, this is even true. Money and your successful pursuit of money can truly free you from the burden of struggling to survive day to day. It can free you from the restraints of where you can live and where you can move to. It can drastically improve your quality of life, and the kind of lifestyle you wish to live.

Having money and attaining wealth is a measure of success. However, success can also be much more broad than material wealth.
Once basic living needs can be met, there are other contributing factors that begin to play a larger role in determining what constitutes success to people. Some of these are:
  • Interpersonal Relationships
    The quality of our relationships with friends, families and acquaintances are extremely important. It helps to shape how we feel about ourselves, our relationship to people and the world and is the basis of trust, stability and love.
  • Personal Achievements
    The ability to achieve personal goals have a huge impact on how we see and feel about ourselves. It raises our self-esteem and self-worth and gives us new perspective on the world. This achievement can be in a person’s career, a hobby, a personal challenge or even a public endeavour. Goal achievements matter.

People in modern society tend to fall into the trap of chasing money exclusively. They end up struggling for more and more material wealth at the expense of other important parts of their lives. In fact, many business leaders and some of the world’s richest and most successful people advise to focus on building personal goals, achievements and relationships. Wealth is often resultant from these factors.

To become truly successful, in a broader sense, requires:

  • Life Purpose
    Many people go through their lives not knowing what their purpose in life is (personally). Clarity of Vision and Purpose gives you a fundamental reason and goal to work towards. It helps to answer the question of “WHY” you’re making certain decisions; and even helps answer the question of “What do I want?”.
  • Life Direction
    How you direct yourself as you grow helps to answer the “HOW”. It helps identify the most probable choices and paths you can take to achieve your purpose.
