My Definition of Success – Karen Walker @MsBessieBell

My Definition of Success

by Karen Walker

—It’s never too late to go for your dreams.

—It helps to be willing to do whatever it takes to make that dream come true.

—Hard work, persistence, and tenacity DO pay off.

—Letting go of the pictures in our heads, of how things should be, opens up new possibilities and opportunities.

—Letting go of expectations about results makes the journey less painful.

—Look at your definition of success and reframe it, if necessary.

What’s your definition of success?
