My Version of Success

( Image via Under30CEO.com

Back in September, I received my Monday Motivation email from Britni Danielle. In the email, she asked subscribers the following question:

What does success look like to you?

Next was a series of questions designed to inspire the reader to work towards creating the life they really want. What initially appeared to be a simple exercise was really eye-opening and I wanted to share it with you.

Am I happy?

If not, what would make me happier?

I feel most successful when?

I really, really want to accomplish __________.

What’s stopping me?

Is that just an excuse?

How can I overcome it?

Today I will do________ to get me closer to_________.

(After you get through the questions, the reader is instructed to  jot down a brief description of his/her ideal life using the following questions.)

What do you do for a living? Where do you live? What do you feel like? Who are you sharing it with?

That’s the end of the exercise.

When I finished, I felt so relieved. Not because the exercise was difficult, but because I realized that successful was within my reach. Prior to receiving the email, the idea of success was so overwhelming. The email helped me evaluate what was preventing me from accomplishing my version of success. I printed multiple copies and placed them all over my home. A visual reminder for me to do something daily to work towards my version of success.
