What Does YOUR Success Look Like?

What does success look like to you? Our culture often defines success as money, fame, power – something between a Pepsi ad and a car commercial. But success is more than financial rewards, the “right" car, or the “right" job. The news is full of stories of “successful" people sabotaging themselves with poor choices. Obviously fame and money were not enough to make them feel successful in their hearts. For success to matter it needs to be on your own terms.

Take some time this week to sit down and think about what success means for you. Is it more time with family and friends? The chance to pursue a dream? Owning your own business or publishing that book? Draw a picture or describe your perfect life in as much detail as possible. What does success feel like? How does it smell? Taste? Who is with you? What are you wearing? Where do you live? Do you have pets? What can you see from the window of your home or office?

When I dreaming about purchasing my first home I used a combination of words and pictures to create a vision of what I was looking for. I used many colored markers and drew a house near a stream, with comments written in about the size, the neighborhood, the details of what I wanted. I then put the drawing away and forgot about it. Several months after I moved I found the drawing in a stack of papers. There was a pretty accurate description of the house I had purchased. This drawing helped crystallize what I wanted. Then, without even remembering the drawing, I went out and found that house. I have since learned to use this method for almost anything I want in my life. If I take the time to really visualize it, I find that I create it in my reality.

Taking the time to visualize your success can make all the difference in achieving it. Knowing what your success looks and feels like will allow you to start making the first steps towards having what you want in life. So, take the time right now to really visualize what you want.
