Let’s talk about success. Success or being successful for me is definitely subjective. Success can have different meanings for each of us.
What does being successful look like to you? Is it having tons of money or being financially free?
Buying your dream house? Landing your dream job? Or being happy?
When I was younger, being successful for me means accomplishing my goals. I saw success as something that was measured through one’s accomplishments.
But now, it’s different. Success for me is being happy. When you are happy, contented, and living a meaningful life then for me you are successful.
But to you, success may look completely different and that’s okay. For me, there’s no right or wrong definition of success.
We go through different things and we all have different journeys so I guess it’s safe to say that we all have our own versions of being successful.
But regardless of how we may define success, I think we can all agree that successful people all share the same habits to help them achieve their own version of success.
