It’s something we all desire yet few of us actually know what it is.
What is the definition of success, and how do we achieve it?
My name is Jason Richardson and for the last 6 months I’ve been on a journey trying to discover the ingredients of success and how to obtain them.
After thousands of hours of reading and dozens of interviews with friends, family, and other entrepreneurs, I’ve come to understand what I believe to be the secret of success.
It is this: You create your own definition. That’s it.
I know that sounds simple and probably not earth shattering, but let me explain.
If you’ve never defined success, how will you know once you arrive?
Too many people wander through life like zombies pursuing what I call the “default definition” which is essentially to make a vague, undefined chunk of money. But if that’s your only motivation, your only metric for success, you’re setting yourself up for failure.
We see it all the time. Once people make it to the top of the ladder of success they often realize that it had leaning against the wrong building the whole time.
So stop! Before you work another day of your life, I ask you, what is your definition of success?
If you don’t have one, you’ve come to the right place.
Patterns of Success was started with the mission of helping aspiring entrepreneurs create and achieve their own definition of success.
Even if you already do you have a clear understanding as to what success means to you, I guarantee that the ideas we discuss here will give you greater clarity of your priorities and will help you live a more balanced life.
This podcast features interviews with successful entrepreneurs and will reveal what their definition of success is and how that definition has guided them throughout their life.
The interviewees are what I like to call multi-dimensional entrepreneurs, where they’re committed not just to their business but to each aspect of life such as family, health, faith, and other pursuits.
Zig Ziglar, perhaps the most famous motivation speaker of all time, once said:
I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful if your home is in shambles.
And I agree with him. Our metrics of success should span across all aspects of life, and not just business.
Now I’m not here to tell you what success is, but I am here to help you create your own definition, one that will serve as a compass and will guide you to happiness and fulfillment in each aspect of life.
I sincerely hope that as you listen to these entrepreneurs share their stories, you can identify the patterns that lead to balanced and meaningful success, and more importantly apply them in your own life.
Thanks for listening, and here’s to your success.
