All of us want success in our lives. We put high expectations on yourself and want to stretch our boundaries. This is a good thing because this is how you grow and evolve. Moving out of your comfort zone helps you to reach new levels.
What is Your Definition of Success?
But sometimes, too much emphasis is put on achieving milestone after milestone and not enough on the process and the feelings. If you don’t hit on these targets, then you feel anxious. You feel nervous. I felt this often as a recruiter. My feeling good was linked to how many placements I had.
But it’s important to understand to not get caught up in this. Create your own definition of success. You don’t need to follow the same definition as others.
Don’t Wait for Success to Feel Successful and Happy
Often, you wait for something to happen for you to feel successful. Maybe your goal is to have a profitable business, so you wait to feel happy and pride when it becomes profitable. But why not start to create those feelings now?
Why not feel successful starting this very moment? You are in charge of your feelings. When you start doing this, success will come to you anyway. And you’ll also let life flow magically.
Enjoy the Process
Focusing on the present moment and creating feelings of success NOW lets you enjoy the process. You go with the flow and live life to the fullest.
