Success is not linear. Success travels over bumps, lumps, hills and valleys and the journey is more important than the destination. It’s where the lessons and learnings occur. Success is a very close relative to failure. Bruce Mao says that we need to have a relationship with loss and failure in order to succeed at anything.
Success is recognizing your strengths, your gifts and allowing them to manifest in your life by sharing them with everyone you can, even if you stumble once in a while. My personal experiences with success have started with the word ‘no’. And I learned that the word ‘no’ can bring you closer to your objective if you believe passionately in what you are working to accomplish.
Success is really more about contribution. The most meaningful way to succeed is to help other people succeed. Having the right people around can create a communal energy for success. Success in good company. I’m in good company!
