Success: Just a Feeling
“Success is nothing other than a feeling. Some people feel 'successful' after taking their dog on a walk. Others feel like a failure if they don't get 1,000 likes on Instagram." What is success, really? Part of understanding success is knowing how you define it— that is, what are you aiming to achieve? Having said that, there's a great argument to be made that success isn't something to be achieved as much as a moment to be appreciated. Chances are good, though, that the truth lies in the middle. Success is both something to achieve and something to appreciate that generates a feeling of success. For some, a big house makes them feel successful; maybe for a day, maybe for a month or year. For others, success includes a life of service and contribution that provides fulfillment. Both situations equate to a moment in time when one FEELS SUCCESSFUL. Thus, to feel successful, it's important to understand how you define success, know what makes you feel successful, and how to manage your emotions with precision most of the time. If you don't feel successful, guess what? It's JUST A FEELING. If you feel successful, take note and understand what the contributing factors are so you can manage that feeling better in the future. Listen in to hear more about the component parts of success and how to contribute your ideas. Enjoy the episode! How much do you really know about habits and goals?
