How Do You Define Success?

Your vision of a successful day, year, and future is uniquely yours. What are you working toward? 

No matter what your personal and professional goals are, in general, most people associate success with feelings of positivity and happiness. While professional success can create happiness in our lives, today’s top entrepreneurs have also learned that:

Happiness comes from balance.

Professional fulfillment can be both emotionally and financially beneficial. However, for most of us, our mental health benefits the most when we keep our devotion to work and self-care in balance. Self-care is more than working out, getting enough sleep, and eating healthfully (though these habits will take you far!); self-care also consists of spending time with friends and family. Our personal connections bring true meaning to our lives, from the moments we laugh together to the times we support each other. Balance your time between professional pursuits, loved ones, and caring for your mental health, and you will feel successful in no time. 

Happiness comes with growth. 

Allow yourself to feel fulfilled by your daily and weekly growth. Self-study and improvement, overcoming obstacles, and dedicating your time to your goals will contribute greatly to your personal satisfaction levels. They also happen to be habits that invite professional success! 

Happiness doesn’t come from looking outside.

As much as we should all celebrate our achievements, success comes from more than awards and external validation. While you want to be respectful of others and maintain high work standards, at the end of the day, it is important to stay true to yourself. If your actions and accomplishments align with your personal values and goals for your future, don’t let yourself lose sleep over your perception of others’ opinions of you. Your mentor can be a good source of trusted, personalized advice that enables you to apply your unique strengths and values. You deserve to succeed on your own terms! 

But happiness does often come from reaching out. 

Life is about more than your personal growth; it’s about enabling others to grow, too. Whether you are a team leader or team member or comprise a team of one, you cannot always succeed on your own. As resilient as you may be, eventually, there will be times when reaching out to your team, mentor, or support network will be the best idea for you and your professional pursuits. The more you support your network, the more they will help you! Likewise, if you spend time making a difference in people’s day, whether in a personal or professional capacity, you are helping plant seeds in your community that will ultimately lead to more growth.
