In his new book, Million Dollar Habits, Brian Tracy defines success as follows:
“Success is the ability to live your life the way you want to love it, doing what you most enjoy, surrounded by people you admire and respect.”
I absolutely love this. It doesn’t say anything about money or fame… it’s about living life the way you want it. Yes, money gives you options and fame often gives you a platform to share your message, but at the end of the day… it’s about how you want to live your life.
This is the essence of my book, Find Your Lane… the ability to navigate your career that gives you a chance to experience success as described above. It starts with you. I call it maintaining your vehicle, which is the importance of investing in yourself. If you want to experience success, then you must find a way to define what it means to you…
Here are 3 things that may help you on your journey…
- Perspective… Be intentional each day by creating time in the morning or evening to read and think about whats important to you. This will lead to fresh ideas and strategies to apply for acceleration in your career.
- Plan. Be purposeful and invest time to plan and set goals each week that will be most meaningful. Invest 15 minutes to review expected outcomes at end of each day. It is like planning your road map on a trip. It will make the difference in your results.
- People. In my book, I call this “Investing in your people zone“. Be purposeful and open minded as you connect with people. Find common threads and look for ways to be open minded and transparent to help each other. Remember that “Your network will be your net worth”. Relationships really do matter!
