In 2013 a reporter asked me if I would be interested in being featured on the cover of the Huntington Seacliff Life magazine. Well, I didn't have to think about that question for very long!
So much has happened in my life since that article appeared and every single day I feel like my life gets better and better. Yes, there are times when I have bad days or days when I am feeling discouraged but I have learned not to let those days last for very long because those days usually seem to happen when I am having low levels of Self-Love.
Low levels of Self-Love happen when I don't finish everything on my "To Do" list, when I don't make all of the calls I wanted to make, when I feel like I haven't learned enough, or feel overwhelmed about learning something new so that I can implement it into my business. In other words, those days happen when I am being especially hard on myself!
During these times of low Self-Love, I have learned to ask myself, "What Makes A Person Successful?"
Here is the answer that I have come up with...
A successful person never quits but fails often. A successful person is open to learning new ways to get things done but never beats herself up when she finds out the old way was creating more work than necessary. A successful person is always open to learning ~ through books, mentoring, teachers, Social Media, videos, life lessons and has learned not to judge herself for not knowing things sooner.
Success isn't measured by the number of Social Media "LIKES", followers or how many times your posts are viewed. Success is measured by the number of lives you have touched in a positive way that has made it possible for you to empower others without disempowering yourself.
Success can be measured by how many times you have tried, failed and gotten back up to try again. Success is taking time for yourself, even if you have to take a week to do nothing that is on your "To Do" list and only things that help you relax.
Success is being Self-Preserving because you know that your needs and wants are just as important as the people around you and if you don't take care of yourself first, you will be no good to the people who are counting on you.
I believe that a successful person has high levels of Self-Image, Self-Confidence, Self-Worth, Self-Esteem and Self-Love and when any of these levels of "SELF" run low or become depleted they find a way to ask for help.
Most of all, success is never allowing someone else to tell you what you can or cannot do!
