Many times clients come up to me and tell me that they would like to be more successful. They want more success, more money, more fame or they want to be better parents, lovers, sons and daughters. Then I ask them how they measure success and they often stumble. What does success mean to you, how would you define it I often ask and they take a long pause. Then after some deliberation a beautiful answer comes out and it’s never the same for any of my clients. Each one of us has a different definition for success.
To me success is a journey that leads to and ends up in happiness. Success is measured by how happy a person is. That means that a person could have short success trips during any given day celebrating small wins and longer ones which may span over their lifetime. It doesn’t matter how long it takes as long as it results in happiness.
After all, the road to success has no end; it knows no beginnings and does not have one single definition. It’s up to you to draw the map.
