How do you define success?May 2016 ART Human TuneUp Column by Cath

It’s easy enough to get caught up in society’s idea of success which involves nearly rampant materialism and money coming out of our ears. If we’re not careful, we adopt materialism and money and they become our measure of success.

I suggest you don’t.

Be clear, I’m not against materialism. Nice things are nice to have.
I’m not talking bad about money, heavens no! It is the excessive striving and stress that often comes with the money-and-materialism definition of success that are the problems.

If you are going to live a life you want, it ultimately comes down to values. What’s really important to you and how can you weave that into your everyday reality? There’s the trick.

Sample values

If you had to choose only five of these values, what would you choose?

  • Challenge
  •  Contribution
  • Security
  • Balance
  • Results-oriented
  • Creativity
  • Order
  • Helping others
  • Discipline
  • Empathy
  • Boldness
  • Love
  • Thoroughness
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Making a difference
  • Leadership

When you connect with your essential values and live them, you will be living a life you want. Success will be yours, by your definition of success! Lovely.
