According to society success comes in the form of wealth. To be truly successful you must have the big house, the six figure income and the perfect family.
Women are not portrayed as successful unless they can "have it all." They need to be able to work and raise a family...all the time not letting either suffer. We are inundated with being the "perfect" woman.
We are surrounded by this crazy ideal of success and perfection.
What is success really?
If we think of our lives as the "event" then we must think about what is our intended purpose for our life? That simple question will help us focus in on our personal meaning of success. Success then becomes very personal in regard to what our "intended purpose" of life is. What is our intended purpose for our families, our children, school or our professional life?
By breaking down our intended purposes in these life areas we will find that that success is attainable! It is important to break down these goals into smaller steps. I encourage my clients to think "baby steps" and keep moving forward in the direction of their life goal. If you keep moving forward you will get there! The important thing is to keep moving forward.
If you keep moving forward you will get there!
