Last week I challenged you to define the priorities in your life. I asked you to look not just at your responsibilities in your business but also at the myriad of roles you play in your personal life — parent, friend, member of your community, etc. — and to determine how all of these fit together. This week I would like you to take it one step further. I want you to think about success and what it means to you. Some people will tell you that your business is not successful unless you are earning a six- or seven-figure salary. The truth is, success looks different for each of us. There are many women whose family is their primary focus, and they are happy to bring in one new client a month. There are others who are working full-time jobs and running their businesses on the side. Everyone’s situation is different. You have to look at your life as a whole and decide how much time you have to work on your business. You are the only one who can determine what success is.
Today’s Implementation Assignment
Now that you have defined your priorities, decide how much time you would like to dedicate to your business. Ask yourself “What does success mean to me?” and don’t forget to celebrate success. As we constantly reach and reach, we often forget to celebrate our accomplishments.
