Defining success. A friend of mine showed a video from Dorie Clark , a successful strategic marketing specialist, and one of the things she said caught my ear. What is your definition of success. You would think that would be the easiest question to answer, but it really isn’t easy. So I asked myself while I was at work, what is my definition of success. My first answer was: Have my books on the shelves of every bookstore in the known universe. But my book will be in the bookstores in February. My wonderful publisher Little Roni publishers will have my book ready to rock and roll and on the bookshelves in February of 2016. ) So is that really success for me. It doesn’t feel like it. In fact, I’ve learned that marketing the book with a... So is that success to me. No. It’s not. So I asked myself questions on success and wrote them on a small yellow sticky note. Questions to ask yourself regarding success:. Each person’s definition of success is different. What works for me might not work for you and vise versa, so it’s ok if you try someone’s formula and it falls like a deck of cards. You can use their ideas, but make them your own. Do I want to be like Dorie and speak at places all over the world. Can my idea of success morph into something else. Once you’ve reached one goal, you’ll make another and another and another until you die. Then you have to stop with goals because, well, you’re dead and that makes it a problem. Am I at success now and I don’t know it. I suffer from bouts of depression, so what might really be successful in my life looks like a garbage dump. So I need to define it so I’ll know it when I see it. My definition of success shouldn’t be my identity. My relationship with Jesus Christ defines me/is my identity. So many folks want their definition of success to define them. Well, what happens with a change of life and now success is defined as something else. I’ve come across writer after writer who believes that a book published will meet that need for recognition and maybe even some payback to the haters who said the writer wouldn’t make it. But I can say from experience, the published book meets NO... It’s become a second job for me. I used to tell non-writers,. Hey, a publisher picked up my novel. Source: A Writer's Love
