What Is Your Definition of Success?
What is your definition of success? Before you can achieve success, you need to define what success means to you. Unless you have a clear vision of what success is to you, you cannot work towards it.
Success means different things to different people. For some, monetary reward is a measure of success. Yet others have multiple definition of success.
1. The Different Areas
To find your own definition of success you need to dig deep within yourself and question your values in life. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are the things that are important to you? By answering these questions you can then come closer to your own definition of success.
Be aware that this can be a long process. You may not get the answers so quickly. But it is alright. Define your measure of success, one at a time.
Let’s take your career as an example. What would your definition of success be for your career? To make the managerial level by a specified time? Then dig deep to see what are your own strengths and weaknesses. Which would help you achieve it. Which of your weakness is a barrier, and does it go against your values?
For me, I value time with my family. However, my work requires me to work late nights and long hours. I will need to adjust my own definition of success. Which would take priority?
2. It Is A Journey
In our career, at a more junior level, your success can be defined by exceeding your job requirements or getting a promotion. Or success can be defined in a few respects. They can be:
1. Your relationship with your boss;
You may add other areas as you move up the corporate ladder. One of my definitions of success in my career at this point - is the number of staff I mentor to higher levels within my industry. When they achieve a certain level of skills and knowledge and are respected by clients, business partners and industry peers – I have achieved some amount of success as far as my career is concerned.
So think hard about your own definition of success.
