What Defines Success?

What Defines Success?

This week we begin a brand new series on Success. It's based on information from my upcoming book which should be released in 2013. Let me know what you think about these small nuggets I share with you each day. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. The book is under construction so I'm trying out the new material on you first. Thanks for your input.

Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! - Isaiah 5:21KJV

Do you want to be successful? If your answer is yes, that desire is your first step in the right direction. Even so, there is a huge gap between desire and accomplishment. Desires are shaped by mental images which in turn are created by processed information. In other words, your imagination is an extension of information you have received and you can only truly desire what you can imagine.

Even though there are no tangible limits to your imagination there are perceived limits. If your exposure to information is limited, so are the building blocks of your imagination. As a result, the meaning of the word success is relative and differs greatly from person to person. What one person considers success would not work for another.

So what exactly defines success in your life? Your answer to that question is of utmost importance. It's highly unlikely that you will stumble upon success. Granted, people do sometimes find success in places where they are not looking but they're hardly successful by mistake. If you don't know your intended destination even if you stumble upon it you won't know when you get there.

Check us out tomorrow for Part 2.
