What’s underneath your defintion of success? question by Danielle LaPorte

Danielle LaPorte is doing the 30 days to Fire Up Your Creative Genius video series for The Huffington Post.

Here is today’s video:

I agree with Danielle LaPorte that when you say you want to feel successful it’s not really saying anything! It’s an empty term! And it has the danger of making success something you’ll never feel because you don’t actually know how it looks for you, and if you don’t know how it looks, you’ll never find it!

For me feeling successful is feeling the freedom to realize my creativity in anyway that I feel is valuable and that I believe will better express who I am and that will make me happy and fulfilled.

To be successful, for me, is to spend the better part of my day creating. When I create, be it writing, drawing, giving, learning, I feel truly as myself, I feel truly at peace with who I am at my core. And to be able to feel that during most of my day is for me the truest definition of success.

Success is feeling at peace with myself and the world. It’s being myself in my work, with my friends, with my family and with people I’ve just met. It’s to be comfortable with who I am, flaws and all…

Wouldn’t that feel great?

What about you? What’s your definition of success?

    This is a great video and has really sparked some ideas! I agree that ‘successful’ is an empty word and that we should be trying to find more concrete definitions behind our desire to be successful.
