What Does Success Look Like To You?

Today’s Classy Career Girl Career Tip: Know the answer to the question, “What does success look like to you?”

As you search for your dream job or build your dream business, it is easy to get caught up in the chase, in the next step, in always looking forward. You can get so caught up in reaching for success that you don’t take the time to enjoy what is right in front of you. You might even get so caught up that you don’t recognize success when it is right in front of you.
If you don’t know what success looks like, how will you know when you reach it?  I think you might be surprised to learn that you are succeeding – right now! What were your goals a few years? Did you accomplish them and then set new, higher goals? Did you take the time to celebrate those successes?

Today’s Successes

Sometimes, we are so consumed with our next career goals we forget to celebrate when we reach our current goals.. That can lead to burn out or feeling overwhelmed.
So before you start making next year’s goals, stop. Figure out what success means to you. When you can answer that question, you will be better prepared to outline your goals.

Here is what success looks like to me:

  • Helping women change their lives.
  • Inspiring others
  • Providing for my family
  • Being a great mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend
  • Supporting others
  • Being happy while accomplishing the above

What Does Success Look Like to You?

Does success mean running your own business? Does it mean being able to spend more time with family? Working less and earning more? Finally setting up your website? Getting your first freelance client? Take the time to celebrate every milestone, no matter how small. It will give you the motivation you need to keep pushing forward.
