The underlying theme of my podcast is property investment, success and money, and today I will be talking a bit about success with Mark Creedon, founder of Business Accelerator Mastermind.
But this isn’t a business show – you will find what we discuss today relevant no matter what you do for a living, and if you are a property investor, you really do you have a business on the side – a property investment business.
Many of us chase career titles, money, social status or even a big property portfolio — and yet we don’t feel successful when we get those things. That’s because you can only measure success in your life when you define what drives your happiness and helps you find purpose.
So if you’re struggling to define what a successful life means, you’ll be pleased to hear Mark and me explain that:
What is success?
Is it wealth? Is it happiness? Is it fame?
I have come to the conclusion that success can’t be defined in one sentence, but instead, it is comprised of many things.
Success is something you have to define for yourself and no one can do it for you.
For some success means a sense of giving back to the world and making a difference.
For others, it was a sense of accomplishment in their career or business. For others, it meant doing what they love.
I bet there will be some people listening to this podcast disappointed in where they are in life at the moment.
For some of their progress, we have been hindered by the economic and health challenges Covid has brought to us.
For others, there will be various reasons why they haven’t achieved the success they want to yet in life - yet.
Stick with us because it’s not too late and you’re not too old to succeed. I’m sure you’ve heard stories like:
If we can learn anything from these people who succeed later in life, it’s this: Success has no deadline.
Success means attempting to move forward.
Let’s start with understanding the difference between accomplishment and success
Accomplishment is often associated with success, but it is not the same.
Accomplishment refers to the results we desire when we attempt to reach specific goals. Basically, it is the results that we plan or expect to occur.
Success is the positive consequence or outcome of an achieved accomplishment.
So what is needed to succeed in life?
Many people attribute success to how much money they have, what kind of car they drive, or the size of their home. However, should material items really define success?
True success is gained not only from the achievement of our goals but also from the happiness and satisfaction derived from pursuing those goals.
