How do you know when you are successful? Does it come in the form of respect? Money? Fulfillment?
How you define success matters. Otherwise, you will live in a world where others define your success. Critics will dictate your direction. Customers will create your roadmap. Colleagues will demand you tell them what they want to hear. Friends will tell you where to live. Bosses will require more out of you for less.
Your success is what you create. But it doesn’t happen passively. Seek to add value. Keep your promises. Follow those you look up to. Learn about yourself. Develop your own map for success
