"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night 
and in between does what he wants to do."

Bob Dylan

Success is one of those words which seems to divide people.

There are some people who love it.  For them it means wealth, fame, awards, possibly a title, certainly a place at the metaphorical top table of life.   

For others, it means exactly the same things and that is why they hate it.  That isn't what they want their lives to be about, but it's what they think they 'should' be aiming for.  It's what the world seems to celebrate and shout about.  It's what business books tell us we should be working towards.

I looked up the official definition of success in the Oxford Dictionaries, which says, "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose".  That's it.  Which could apply to anything from a glittering career to making a decent cup of tea.

Or, as Bob Dylan suggests, living a life that makes you happy, whether that be fame and fortune or being able to spend your day being happy through producing your creative work.

Personally, I measure my success by the feeling I get working with exciting and inspiring people.  Yes, there is a practical level, where success also means generating money, but only to allow me to stay independent, making choices based on what I want to do for the rest of my life.

Don't get hung up on a word.  

Forget what you think other people mean by success and define it in your terms.  

Then go for it.

If this has struck a chord with you and you want to find out if coaching will support you in finding out what success means for you, check out how we could work together and get in touch.
