It's A Matter Of PerspectiveSuccess…

What do these things mean to you?

Really… I want to to stop and define these things for you. When you think of success, what does that mean to you?

You see, all of these things are a matter of perspective. Your definition of success will be different than mine.

Let me tell you why this is critical in the achievement of your goals.

Let’s say you come to me and talk about how successful you are. You travel the world and take exotic vacation on your big yacht and such. You want to show me how to do it too.

Sounds cool right?

Maybe not though. You see, non of that sounds appealing to me. I’m not much of a traveler and I don’t like water. So do you think I’m going to be as excited about your lifestyle as you are?

Not really.

Now, are there others that want that lifestyle. You bet there is but I am not one of them. It just isn’t me.

I’m not going to be as motivated to follow in your footsteps as others might be, just because there isn’t a connection.

This is why you need to define YOUR goals and what success looks like to you. You can’t follow someone if they don’t have what you want.

Once you have YOUR OWN definition of success, you can then find the mentor for you. Look for someone that has done what you want to do. If you want to succeed with that, you need to find someone that you can connect with first.

Live your own dreams, not some other person’s. You’ll get there much faster and will be much happier when you get there.
