If we do not determine what matters most and define success for ourselves, there are many people willing to do it for us. How we define success tends to impact how we live our lives and invest our precious time. I would say yes, it matters a great deal!

We each have the freedom and opportunity to determine this definition for ourselves. Unfortunately, due to multiple priorities and often being short on time, we fail to do so. It does not have to be that way. If you take time today to define success for yourself, you may reap these benefits:

Better Manage Distractions and Temptations

When we know what matters most and how we will measure our progress in life, it becomes easier to remain focused. Without this, it is easy to be swayed by others or what seems interesting or exciting at the moment. In order to properly invest our precious time in what matters most to us, we must be clear on how we define and measure success.

Experience More Happiness and Peace of Mind

Having a clear definition of success has the potential to result in less stress and peace of mind. You may find that you are experiencing more joy as you focus your time and energy on growing personally and building relationships that matter. It may become less about what you do or have and more about who you become.

Inspire You to Make a Difference

When life becomes more about others than us, we tend to experience a sense of fulfillment that money cannot buy, and material things cannot provide. The world needs people who care and who are passionate about impacting the lives of others in a positive way. When you consciously define success for yourself, you may find yourself contributing to society in unique ways that matter to you and positively impact the lives of others.

How do you define success? If you have not consciously determined this for yourself, there is no better time than now to do so. If you need help, do not hesitate to reach out to someone. It may result in you living a life filled with more peace and joy rather than stress and regret.
