How do You Define Success in Your Life

How is success determined?

Have you ever felt like the odd one out in a group of “successful” people? Maybe you didn’t have designer clothing, didn’t drive the fanciest car, or didn’t understand their business lingo. Regardless, feeling as if you are inferior to someone else — especially a group of people — is not a great feeling.  

But does it really need to be this way? At Meru Mentor, we believe the answer is no. By joining us for holistic life mentoring sessions, you can also break free from this way of thinking.

Typically in our society, success looks like having financial freedom, a high-level corporate job, and an expensive house and car. If you don’t have these things — or maybe don’t even desire to have these things — you may feel like you don’t belong. 

It’s easy to get caught up in what the world tells you you’re supposed to want in life, but what you must remember is that you get to define your own success in life. Whatever you deem important is how you get to determine your successes and failures. 

Importance of Defining Success 

The definition of success according to Merriam-Webster is a “favorable or desired outcome.”  

Do you know what that means? Just because you live in a world where money is seen as the end-all, it doesn’t mean that that is success for you.  

It’s important to know your personal definition of success because if you’re striving for someone else’s standard of success, you’ll never truly feel accomplished. Once you’ve defined what success means for you, having confidence in who you are and what you desire out of life will fulfill you far more than a full wallet ever will. 

Ways to Define Personal Success 

There are many ways to define success in life and business:  

  • Career 
  • Family  
  • Faith 
  • Finances 
  • Possessions 
  • Reputation  

These are just a few of the ways you can define your success in life. For you, it may be a combination of several things. When you connect with Meru Mentor, we can help you determine what success means in your life through personal goal-setting sessions.

If you are a believer, your definition of success in life and business will look much different than someone who is not. You likely will have a biblical standard rather than a worldly standard.  

Others may find success in the size of their family or their ability to purchase designer handbags. 

Unfortunately, if you incorrectly define success, you are setting yourself up to strive after things that will ultimately let you down in this life.
