Are you successful? It’s an interesting question, and before you can answer it you must first define what success looks like for you.
For many, success is about money.
For some, success is about a feeling of accomplishment.
And for others, success is the positive movement toward specific goals and dreams.
It’s one thing to say you want to be successful. It’s another thing to define what success looks like.
