CADOGAN Institution: Part 2 - Mini Series on Personal Growth
Two questions for you today:
1.Are you succeeding in life?
2.How do you even know?
The reality is most people define their success by how they FEEL they are doing.
They say things like:
I “feel” like my relationships are healthy.
I “feel” like my body is in shape.
I “feel” like my business is doing well.
But the problem is our FEELINGS are produced by our FOCUS.
The same situation can FEEL good or bad depending on what we FOCUS on.
For example, you could say -
“Well, I’m better than I was...” So, you feel good.
“But, it wasn’t what I wanted it to be...” So, you feel bad.
“Well, it could have been a lot worse..” You feel good again.
“But, it wasn’t as good as theirs was..” Now you feel bad again.
Same situation.. different focuses & different feelings.
Was it a success? You have no idea...
This is why we must determine what success is.
We must define wins & losses.
We must set clear targets.
We must MEASURE success based on FACTS not FEELINGS.
If not, we are just guessing.
We are lost.
We never truly know if we are succeeding or growing.
We will never reach the potential we are searching for.
So, that area you want growth in?
Define the win. Make it measurable. Start acting and track your progress.
Did you hit it? That’s real success.
Did you miss? You failed.
How do you know? Because you have FACTS.
Friends, this is where growth happens.
