What keeps you awake at night? What do you dream about? What would it mean to lead a happy and fulfilled life? What would give you the feeling to thrive, being “on top of the world”? How do you define success?
There are many different approaches on how to be successful in life, and the strategy that works best for you may depend on your view of success and happiness. We often think of it as doing well at work or earning a high salary. But what is required to get there?
Nobody would disagree to say that real success in life is achieving the goals that matter to you the most. For example, a successful career is usually one where the person feels happy to go to work every day, doing something that they are really interested in and that gives them a sense of accomplishment. However, what about the other aspects of life?
Professional success is what you're aiming for in your professional life, or your place of work. Personal success, on the other hand, refers to what you aspire to achieve for yourself: family, romantic relationships, academic achievement, happiness, sport or finding purpose are just a few areas where people may strive for success. Is it possible to combine the two?
While professional accomplishments can be one piece of the puzzle, it leaves out many other important areas of life. Your individual definition of what success is may vary, but many might define it as being professionally accomplished, personally fulfilled, happy, safe, healthy, and loved. For many, it seems difficult, if not impossible, to combine a successful career with a happy and balanced personal life. What do you need to thrive?
To feel successful implies that you are able to reach your goals in life, whatever those goals may be. So, what can you do to boost your chances of achieving these things? What are some of the habits of successful people?
There is no single right way to be successful. What works for you might not work for someone else. There may not be a perfect combination of ingredients that can guarantee success, but there are some basic steps you can follow that can improve your chances of being successful in life, love, work, or whatever happens to be important to you.
