I define success for myself personally whenever I have the opportunities to work and have my career choices rooted in my true passions in life. Passion for me is constant and ever evolving, but I will always be able to identify a passion point. I identify passion points by having frequent “self checks” with my self, where I take the time out to ask myself is the activity I am doing making me happy? Do I feel happy when I complete the goal or activity?, also if I didn’t get paid as much as I did to do this or not at all would I still engage in this behavior? For me, when I am able to merge my passion with my God given purpose on a daily and generate revenue (a career) from in it, I am living successfully. Also success for me is defined when I create a goal, then a plan and subsequently I act on the tactics it takes to obtain the goal. Read more>>
