People measure success and happiness in many ways. Many people measure success by wealth, while other people measure success in other areas.
Personally I never measure success and happiness based just on money alone. We know that wealth does not guarantee total happiness.
I personally measure wealth by family, peace of mind, good health, fulfillment and helping and impacting the lives of others. Of course we all know that money is just part of the equation, you certainly need to pay your living expenses and maintain financial security for yourself and your family.
Success is when you learn to develop your self confidence and determination within ; which will help you overcome adversity and self doubt with confidence, helping you create balance within yourself towards reaching your goals.
To start, you need to understand that success starts within. You control your own success or failure. Only you can define and measure your own success or failure.
The following guidelines will help you conquer self-doubt and give you some guidelines to reach higher levels of excellence— personally, professionally, and financially.
The following tips will help you measure your own success and happiness:
Goals — unless you clearly define what will make you happy, you will be unable to define and measure your own success or happiness. Clearly define and separate your own goals into three areas; personally, professionally, and financially. Without goals you’ll just drift aimlessly.
Stay focused towards making your goals a reality. The easiest way to make your goals and dreams a reality is to develop your competitive spirit towards making your goals and expectations a reality. My book, a Hairdresser’s Guide to Success will be extremely helpful. Click here
Positive Attitude: if you look real hard at the positives every day, you will not see too many of the negatives. Stay away from people who are always making excuses to fail.
Look at adversity as an opportunity to learn and grow. Develop a positive mind set ,by always striving to look for the good in life personally, professionally,and financially.
