The first step to success? 

Define what success is for you. 

Our culture likes to portrait a certain version of success that we so often subscribe to without really checking with ourselves on what is actually important to us.

I want to encourage you not to let the world, your culture, your community, your friends, your family, your colleagues, or anyone else define what success is for you. Don't compare yourself to others to determine your success. 

Success is not a cookie-cutter formula. 

So, how do you define your version of success?

Get clear on what you most value in life.

We all value different things. When you get clear on what you personally value most deeply in life you can focus on and lean into those values....put them at the center stage in the days of your life. This is what I believe success is. 

If you live according to what others think you 'should' value, you could end up feeling unfulfilled, and not very happy, while the people around you may view you as successful. 

So the question is then, would you rather FEEL successful or be viewed as successful by others? If you would like to feel more successful, It's important to get clear on your top values. 

How To Get Clear On Your Top Values: 

I like the list of values that Brene Brown has compiled here: List Of Values . Know that you are more than welcome to add your own if you wish. 

Take some time to circle the ones that you personally value the most. Come back to the list multiple times until you have narrowed down the top several values. 

Do some writing on each value, and what they mean to you. 

Do some writing on how you can embrace each value in your life in tangible ways and set those intentions. 

From this place, it can be easy to define your own personal version of success in life and know what you need to get there. 

This can be a really clarifying personal growth exercise. 

Wishing you all of the glorious success that you deserve!

With love,
