Success means different things to different people. To be truly successful, you need to decide in yourself what success means to YOU. I will give you 2 examples.
My Zone Therapy mentor some 25 years ago was an amazing person who healed many people including the British royalty. He was extremely talented and would fix hard to treat health problems often within a few sessions. He only charged £7 an hour. He was jolly, friendly, successful and very happy. Success to him, was helping people and passing on the good he was able to create.
On the other hand, one of my bosses when I used to work for others was all about money. He even charged his mother for old clothes he would otherwise throw out and would charge his employees to provide them tea and coffee! He went on to make hundreds of millions of pounds!!! He was also successful and generally a happy person. These 2 people were both successful but were miles apart. You need to decide what is success TO YOU. Only then will you be able to put a plan in place and go about achieving it.
Other people’s success may not be for you. However once you have decided what is success for you, then you can emulate others who have achieved similar success. If you want to help others, you can emulate Ghandi. If you want to make lots of money, you can emulate Richard Branson.
