What is your measure of success?

4- step easy guide to help you create your own measure of success.

So I’m a success coach who constantly strives to help individuals achieve greater success and happiness in life. (read my story here). One question I get from my clients is that, “But how will I know that I’m successful?” How do I measure success after all?

The key to measuring success lies in discovering what is really important to you? What are your beliefs and values? For true measure of success your goals needs to be allingned to your values. Download our free copy of belief and value system here.

Let’s say your goal is to lose weight. You set a target of 10kgs to lose in the next 3 months. Reducing 10kgs will place you safely under your BMI. In this scenario, let’s say you did lose 12 kgs in 3 months, you will not feel successful about achieving this goal. It will merely be a thing off from you to-do list.

Now let’s say you want to live long and healthy life. You strongly believe that eating right and exercising regularly is the only way to lead a long and healthy life. You value health and fitness. It plays a major role in your life. In this scenario, even if you lose 2 kgs in 3 months, you will feel successful because you know that this path is taking you one step closer to your larger goal which is living a long and healthy life. It will keep you motivated to work harder and achieve your goal of 10kgs and trust me, 3 months deadline woudn’t matter now.. because you know what really matters.. You see what I’m saying?

How do you know you are successful?

You know you are successful when you achieve the goals that really matter to you. When your goals have a direct correlation to your beliefs and values, achieving these goals will mean success to you.

4 steps to measuring your success?

  1. Think about your values and beliefs. Think about what is really important to you and write them down. Download our free values and beliefs exercise here.
  2. Think about your short term and long term goals. What difference will it create in your life if you achieve/ do not achieve these goals?
  3. How are these goals aligned to your values? How do you feel about these goals? Is it troubling you that you are doing nothing about it or is this a “good to have” goal?
  4. When it comes to execution, take one step at a time. To measure your progress, compare yourself with none but you. Where were you when you started and where are you now?

A personal story..

To me the quality of content I produce is a measure of my success, because I believe in authenticity. Even at home when I spent time with my baby, I make sure I give her quality time and undivided attention. Being a mom who mostly works from home, there is no upper limit on the amount of time I get to spend with my baby. Still I cap it to make sure whatever little time I spent, it is a job well done without any digital or mental distractions.
