How Do You Measure Success?

02/28/2022 5:07 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom. - Gen. George Patton

Does anyone else notice how families don’t live just down the street from one another like they used to? Maybe it is you that moved away from your hometown, maybe your adult child has moved out of state for college or to start their own adventures. It is every parent’s dream to see their child spread their wings and watch them make their way in the world. 

Success is a journey, not a destination. - Arthur Ashe

Success is where preparation and opportunity meet. - Bobby Unser

This is an incredible compliment to your parenting skills. The journey your child takes, the way your family will branch out across the country, even to other countries shows how successful you have been in raising your child. 

Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. - Winston Churchill

Behind every successful man there’s a lot of unsuccessful years. - Bob Brown

Success is measured according to each person’s perspective of what success means to them. Success can be measured by wealth, level of education, status, popularity, occupation, etc. In business, you often measure success by customer satisfaction. A happy customer will return to do more business with you. On a personal level, success is measured by something different.

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. - Thomas Edison

That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well. - Abraham Lincoln

How do you measure success in your life? As Women In Leadership roles or who want to achieve your own level of success, what do you do to make it happen? Do you work hard so you can play hard? Do you continue your education? Do you want recognition? Is your success just for you?

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. - Robert F. Kennedy

So what is the true measure of success? Ask yourself:

  • Do you enjoy what you do?

  • Do you love your life?

  • Are you proud of yourself?

  • Have you made an impact on others?

  • Do you have people that care about you?

  • Do you see progress in your life?

What would you add to our list of ways to measure your success?
