Redefining Success and Failure

Redefining Success and Failure

I’ve been thinking about success and failure a lot lately as I begin to take big leaps and risks towards my dreams. There is a lot of fear as I walk this path and a lot of concern about failure too. But the biggest lesson I’m learning on this journey is I create my own reality by choosing the perspective through which I see the world. So instead of using some external metric imposed by others to define my success, I choose to redefine success and failure for myself.

  • Failure is feeling victimized by the world and believing you don’t have choices.
  • Failure is letting fear talk you out of what your gut wants you to do.
  • Failure is being afraid to be vulnerable because being vulnerable is having the courage to be seen.
  • Failure is not taking chances because you’re afraid to fail.
  • Failure is letting others define your success.
  • Success is having the courage to show up as your true self and defining your own sense of worth.
  • Success is running towards your dreams, despite your fears.
  • Success is recognizing you have the power to create your own reality.
  • Success is seeing your vulnerability, flaws and struggles not as faults but as your power.
  • Success is leaning into fear because fear means you’re getting ready to grow and change.
  • Success is choosing to live fully, bravely, and unapologetically.

I choose to live fully, bravely and unapologetically.
