The Indisputable Definition of Success––How to get it…and how leaders can help others get some too!

Let’s start with the definition. I’m not an arrogant person, but on this subject I am absolutely certain I’ve got it right. After my explanation, I’ll welcome any arguments…

People like to argue with me over my assertion that I’ve found an indisputable definition for success. Many of them say that success is subjective––that it means different things to different people.

I could never accept that premise. Why would we work so hard and commit entire lifetimes to attaining something that is completely indefinable? I could never make sense of that. So––I spent what most would consider way too much time thinking about it, studying models of success and most important, people who consider themselves successful.

Here’s what I came up with…

Success is the product of abundance. Success is nothing more than having “enough” in 3 major areas of life: Material, Emotional and Spiritual.

When you have “enough,” you feel successful. When you are lacking in any area, you don’t.

It’s that simple. As with most of the things we talk about––not always easy.
