“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” Jim Carrey
I was at dinner the other night talking to a young friend of mine that casually made a comment that his definition of success is having a lot of money in the bank and a high net worth.
My own kids talk about the big houses they want to own one day with all the toys to fill in it imaginable like cars and an indoor swimming pool and a huge game room.
I just smile and ask them to expand their definitions of success that might include other things besides stuff and money.
What’s so funny to me about these conversations is I was exactly like them!
It got me thinking if I have all the stuff and money that I’ll ever need and way more how will I know I’m successful? So here’s an incomplete list of things I want in my life to know I’m successful.
I know I’m successful when (an incomplete and growing list):
  1. I can work when I want, where I want, and with whom I want.
  2. Saturday and Monday are the same days.
  3. I have total control of my time and schedule.
  4. I only take on projects that fulfill me intellectually and spiritually.
  5. I’ve helped over 1000 people escape solo economic dependency.
  6. I have all the things money can’t buy: A fit body, a calm mind, a house full of love.
  7. I don’t self-soothe with distractions like work, social media, and television when uncomfortable feelings arise. I just feel them.
  8. I no longer care what people think.
  9. I don’t compare myself to others.
  10. I’m constantly investing in my self-development, mentally, physically, and spiritually to be the best possible version of myself.
  11. I enjoy all my relationships and quickly avoid toxic personal and business relationships.
  12. I live by the Golden Rule and when I inevitably don’t, I quickly make amends.
  13. I don’t blame, criticize or judge others harshly. I have compassion for everyone yet don’t let myself be taken advantage of.
  14. I take total responsibility for everything that happens in my life.
  15. I’m generous with a full heart to others with no expectations of reciprocation.
  16. I’m my own best company.
  17. Fear doesn’t stop me from growing into a better version of myself.
  18. I forgive myself and others easily.
  19. I don’t mind what happens.
  20. On my death bed, I’ll be surrounded by my loved ones and they’ll say I was a good ancestor and made a positive difference in their lives and others.
I’d love to see your “I know I’m successful when” list. Email me your list at [email protected]
“Hey, you. Yes, you. Stop being unhappy with yourself. You are perfect. Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else. Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you. Stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks. Love them. Without those things, you wouldn’t be you & why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident with who you are, smile, it’ll draw people in. If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself, stick your middle finger in the air and say my happiness will not depend on others anymore. I’m happy because I love who I am, I love my flaws, I love my imperfections, they make me, me & ‘me’ is pretty amazing.” -Dandamudi Yesaswini
