This August, we’re hitting the ‘pause’ button on our regular routine and making space for some deep, introspective exploration. We’re setting out on a journey to figure out what success truly means to us, beyond the superficial confines of societal norms and expectations.
Often, we find ourselves on autopilot, breezing through life without pausing to consider if the direction we’re heading in is the one we genuinely desire. Life can become a monotonous repetition of the same old, same old. But this month, we’re shaking things up.
We’ll be taking a step back to ponder: what does success mean to us personally? What would it look like, and how would it feel? The crucial part here is to lend an ear to our internal voice and not let others’ definitions of success cloud our judgment.
Growing up, we’re often told what success should look like, and usually, it’s painted in shades of monetary wealth. Money, however, is a tool for shaping reality—it’s not the end goal. So, let’s think beyond money. If we had all the wealth we desired, what would we do with it? What would we create?
Our goal this month is to unravel our individual definitions of success. To dig deep and question, “Why is this important to me?” Is it because society told us it should be, or is it something we genuinely desire in our hearts?
As we journey through August, we’ll have the opportunity to release anything that has been limiting our perspectives or forcing us to take the paths others have laid out for us. We’ll focus on defining our own path, our unique idea of success.
This journey of discovery will be a weekly process, so make sure you subscribe and stay tuned for all the updates. Our aim is to transition into a state of confident creation, where we’re clear about our goals and ready to forge our way forward.
In the military, there’s a concept called “reverse engineering” or “backward planning.” Once we’ve defined what success looks like for us, we can use this method to bridge the gap between where we are now and where we want to be. We’ll identify the steps we need to take and habits we need to form, inching us closer to our version of success every day.
So join me during this introspective journey through August. Let’s redefine success, in our own words, on our own terms. Let’s embrace the change and take charge of our destiny!
