The Secret to Success: Creating Your Own Definition of Success

Even if we don’t admit it, we all desire to find the secrets to success. It is our desire to learn about the aspects that will help us achieve our objectives, whether they be in our work or personal lives.

In the previous two years, sales of self-help and productivity books have almost doubled.

Autobiographies and memoirs have seen a 42% rise in sales in the last year alone. We’re interested in studying the habits of successful people. We’d want to know how they ended up here.

What’s more, there are an infinite number of alternative answers, ranging from networking and investments to morning routines and an optimistic mindset.

There is so much conflicting information out there on how to succeed. How can we know what works best for us? Choosing who to follow and what actions to take may be a difficult task.

What if we all had our own unique blueprint for success? Couldn’t we tap into our own wisdom instead of following someone else’s?

Identifying your own personal definition of success is possible using this method.

How Do You Measure Your Success?

If you don’t know where you’re going, you won’t get there. Traveling without a destination in mind is challenging. Otherwise, we’re simply going through the motions and hoping for the best.

Therefore, it is impossible to discuss success without first examining the ultimate goal and its accompanying metrics. By looking at your progress toward achieving your definition of success, you’ll know whether you’re on track or need to change your path. Is there any other way to tell whether you’ve arrived?

What it means to be successful is to accomplish what you’ve set out to do.

As a consequence, it is difficult to succeed without a goal or purpose. We can’t have success unless we know what success looks like for ourselves. Using the definition could provide us some guidance.

Even while simply watching television may be regarded as successful if my aim is to relax on my day off, it isn’t when my goal is to get a lot of work done.

It’s best to put off that back-burner work project until tomorrow if I want to spend quality time with my family today.

Choosing one’s path in life is a matter of life and death. You have a decision to make between two possible outcomes. For the sake of anything else, you’re making a compromise. To study for a test, you may have to give up a night of partying. If you want to conserve money, you may have to skip a vacation with your pals. Instead of watching television this evening, you may work on that project.

But if you don’t know what success is, you won’t be able to make decisions on what to do next. Achieving success requires a clear understanding of your own priorities.

Values are the determinants of success.

Having a clear idea of what you’re getting into is the first step to success. We measure the things that are important to us. I can’t remember what my friend ate for lunch, but I’m sure our conversation was worthwhile.

At any given moment, there are an infinite number of factors to consider. Our success or failure will be determined by the measurements we choose. And we’re going to keep reassessing our priorities.

To a large extent, our lives are a direct reflection of our values and priorities. Our lives will reflect the choices we make if we always put others ahead of ourselves. When we put our careers before our families, it will show up in our personal lives as well.

Our actions are influenced by our beliefs. They tell us whether we’re making progress toward our objectives, and if so, how we might adjust our course of action. As a result, it is impossible to achieve any kind of success unless we are aware of our own beliefs.

It’s hard for me to see how a promotion that pays a little more money but requires me to spend a lot more time away from my family is a success for me. Is it a success for me if I have a lot of interesting activities but also cherish my personal time?

It doesn’t matter what the “objective metrics of success” are if something doesn’t match up with our ideals.

It’s impossible to be successful in any area unless you first have a clear sense of your own ideals.

Sensitivities are a major concern for values.

The question is, how can we know what is important to us? What criteria do we use to prioritise the things that are most important to us?

Our values seem to change dramatically over time or in different contexts. We tend to value independence more while we’re young. As we become older, our priorities may change, and we’ll start to value the connections in our lives more. It’s also important to us to be creative at work. However, we value structure in our personal lives.

It’s also difficult to know for sure whether our beliefs, such as our concept of success, aren’t simply based on those of other people.

Fortunately, we have an internal guidance system that tells us about our values and sensitivities, which is a positive thing. There are certain things in life that we are very sensitive to, while there are others that we are not so sensitive to.

Maybe we’ve always been sensitive to the concept of freedom and have been searching for new ways to feel more free. Our natural drive to make others feel included may stem from a deep-seated yearning to feel like we belong.

You can’t help but notice and enjoy all you see and feel. “Sensitivity” suggests that we have more senses than most other individuals; hence, our feelings are influenced by what we see as most important.

As a consequence of our higher sensitivity, we naturally have stronger aspirations, needs, traumas, and skills in that area of our lives. No matter what stage of life we are in—from infancy to the present moment—this same level of sensitivity will permeate all of our relationships, whether professional or personal.

In our greatest triumphs and most agonising defeats, they will be seen. In good and bad times, they’ll be there for us. As a team, we’ve experienced it all. We haven’t experienced them every time we’ve failed.

Success and happiness may be achieved in every situation by following these simple rules. They are the methods through which we construct our own definition of success.

The only thing left to do is to map your own sensitivity so that you can define your own success.

Mapping Your Sensitivities helps you determine your definition of success.

Map your sensitivities with emotionally captivating stories from your own life, and you’ll be on your way to discovering your values and success metrics.

The following is a little exercise to help you map your sensitivities: [Activity]

Look back to a time when you were at your happiest. Create a picture in your mind. It’s important to take note of all the sensations you experience in this circumstance.

Make a note of all the words that come to mind at this moment and cross them out. As a result of this, you may have felt awestruck, awe-inspiring, magical, affluent, alive, or wealthy.

Choose one of the most painful or horrible situations in your life (that doesn’t seem like it will re-traumatize you). In this case, imagine the situation and bring it to life using all of your senses.

Jot down a list of all the words that describe how you are feeling at the moment. Your emotions may have ranged from depression and abandonment to perplexity and a sense of helplessness. Write how you want to feel next to each word. It’s possible that you’re looking for a sense of belonging, a feeling of contentment or clarity, or a sense of drive.

Circle any words that occur twice or more on your lists for both your happy and unpleasant experiences. An excellent example is if you felt connected at a happy moment and sought that connection during a sad time. Any words that are quite near to one another might be circled as well.

The mapping of your sensitivities is now complete. Would you consider it a success if you felt all of the words you highlighted? You would, of course. Because they are the most delicate and, as a result, the most priceless parts of your personality. Think about how you’ve done well in the past and you’ll learn to recognise such words. Take a look at prior examples of “failure” and the polar opposites.

An in-depth exploration of one’s sensitivity maps may be much more instructive and insightful than this quick overview of how to define one’s own success.

The Secrets to a Successful Life

Our own notion of success is shaped by the experiences of our whole lives. These are the things that have been successful for us, from our closest friends to our biggest successes. They also let us know when we had failed. All that remains is for us to make the links between those experiences and to appreciate the sensitivities that constitute our success.

The ultimate secret to success is following a strategy that has already been demonstrated to work for you. That evidence is already prevalent throughout your life. Perhaps you’ve been successful each time you’ve had a true connection, been hilarious and entertaining, shared strategic ideas, and voiced your opinions without apologies. If that is true for you, you already have the secret to success. You’ve seen it work in the past and are positive that it will continue to work in the future.

It’s self-sufficiency.

I’ve assisted hundreds of folks in finding their sensitivities, and I can declare clearly that, at the end of the day, everyone of us has our own unique recipe for success. And we are not compelled to duplicate anyone else’s formula as no one else has our unique blend of talents, experiences, and sensitivities.

Therefore, develop a map of your sensitivity. Discover your own success formula. And define success according to your own criteria.
