I wanted to open this discussion as I often think about this topic; how do you measure success? Of course, this will not be the same for everyone. To some success is about how far they advance in their career and make it to the top, to others it’s all about leaving a legacy behind. Then you also find those who want to live a peaceful and simple life.
I’ve met all three types of people in my life and I cannot say that any one of them had it wrong, what I can say is that all of them had a strong sense of purpose.
In my opinion, success can not be achieved without a sense of purpose. The difficulty lies in finding your purpose rather than obtaining success, especially in the world we live in right now, where everything is at our fingertips. Therefore success can only be measured when one finds their purpose and fulfills it.
How do you measure your success? What is the most important thing to keep in mind?
