What is success? There is no one answer to this question. Success is something different to all of us. Some of us may immediately plug into the ĎAmerican Dreamí as our answer, though I wonder how true this is for any of us. Most of us probably want parts of the traditional American Dream Ė a house that fits our needs or our dreams, enough money to live to our desired standard. Itís likely that we define the greater picture of success from our own unique perspective.
One way to determine your definition of success was talked about in a past entry. There I wrote about finding a job you love, a job for which you have a passion. But a job, a career, is only part of success.
Successful people live balanced lives. They nurture body, mind, and spirit. They have a plan for success.
It has been proven time and time again that successful people, those who live a balanced life and find joy in living, have this plan for success grounded in specific goals. These goals include a long-term (three to ten years or more) goals with short-term (six to twelve month) objectives.
