In this episode of Being YOU!, we’ll dive deep into a topic that’s fundamental to achieving success in any aspect of life: You.
Success, as we’ll explore, isn’t merely about external achievements, but it starts and ends with you as an individual.
We’ll journey through the notion that success isn’t about trying to mimic the actions of others or becoming something you’re not; instead, it hinges on discovering what makes you uniquely successful.
When you get the person right, their world will be right.
By focusing on being true to yourself, everything aligns and supports your endeavours.
The idea is that ‘being’ trumps ‘doing’ if you’re looking to maximize your time on Earth, achieve your loftiest aspirations, and lead a life filled with purpose.
Society often places undue emphasis on what you do rather than who you are being. Job titles, salaries, and societal status can easily define our identity, but do they truly represent who we are?
We’ll discuss how the external can never fully replace the internal. Yet despite this, many of us fall into the trap of believing otherwise.
When we struggle to reconcile what we do with who we are, this can lead to the misguided belief that ‘I am what I do.’
Your identity becomes a human ‘doing’, not a human being.
Success, though, isn’t about job titles and salaries alone but encompasses your mental and physical health, free time, and your passion for what you do.
Success, therefore, is self-defined and comes from within.
Moreover, success is a process, a journey of self-discovery and growth. Success is progressive, it’s about realizing a worthy ideal, and it’s fundamentally tied to who you are at your core.
So to truly succeed, you must first cultivate inner worth, and the external markers of success will naturally follow.
As the saying goes,
“Worth before wealth.”
Success, then, in anything you do depends on you… and your failure too.
