(Video) Ask Yourself These Six Questions to Develop Your Own Definition of Success

Do you have your own definition of success? Most people are trying to live up to society’s definition of success without considering if this is the best option for them.

Ask others what success means and you’re likely to hear a variation of these answers:

  • Fancy car or two – Mercedes, BMW, Lexus
  • Nice house – Big, with a swimming poolwith a beautiful garden
  • Respectable corporate job – something worthy of bragging about
  • Attractive spouse

Those things are fine if they’re of your own choosing. But, if you take the time to think about it, your definition of success might be: Single, traveling the world, running my own business from a laptop, having adventures each day, and wearing flipflops at least eight hours each day. A person with this definition of success would be miserable in the first scenario.

You might find yourself accomplishing something that doesn’t appeal to you in the end.

Avoid disappointment by creating your own definition of success!

Watch the practical video below to create your own definition of success.

(Pack) The Power Within: How to Gain Power and Influence at Work and in Life

You’re familiar with the idea of power at work and in life. You might believe that you’ll never have any power. Perhaps it’s because of one of these reasons:

  • I didn’t attend the right school.
  • I didn’t have the right university major.
  • I’m too shy.
  • I’m too nice.

But these aren’t true limitations. They may be obstacles to overcome in some circumstances, but these obstacles can be bested by those with the skills and motivation to do so.

(Guide) Tired of Working without Recognition?

Employees want it, managers know it’s important, and it usually doesn’t cost a cent. When you look at it that way, you’d expect to be drowning in recognition at work.

Yet, a recent Gallup poll found that only one in three workers in the US say they received recognition or praise for doing good work in the past seven days. It’s not that surprising when you think about the possible reasons.

Some of your coworkers could feel too competitive to notice you. Your boss could think that keeping you on the payroll proves they’re satisfied with your performance, and any of your colleagues could be uncomfortable or unfamiliar with handing out praise.

If you want to feel valued, you may need to shake things up.
