We hear about it all the time, the buzz words surrounding this seemingly illusive topic called "SUCCESS". I think we all have general ideas about what we think being successful is, but isn't a bit more required? Imagine the following scene, I enter a cab, and the conversation goes like this:
Cab Driver: "where to?"
Me: "I'm not sure, just start driving."
Cab Driver: "Look buddy, I need an address or something."
Me: "Well, I don't have an actual address, but I have a good idea where I want to end up."
Cab Driver: "Man, that's not going to work, give me a cross street or something!"
Me: "Look, I have a general picture in my head of where I need to go. Start driving, and I'll know it when I see it."
Well, you get the point. How aggravated would this driver get trying to convince you that he can't take you somewhere, if you don't know where you want to go? And then even if he gave in and began driving, how expensive would this cab ride get before you wound up somewhere you want to be?
I believe everyone's definition of success will be different, but I think each of us need to define it.
So, what's your definition?
