A few weeks ago we had a work party, where we sat on a boat, sipping wine in the sunshine. We got talking about success and what it meant for us and it got me thinking.
If you’d asked me 7 years ago what success looked like, I’d have answered being at the top of my career, earning a certain salary and living the high life, whatever any of that means.
If you ask me today, it’s completely different. My priorities have changed and I like to go at a slower pace, saying no to anything that doesn’t fully float my boat.
So here goes.
Success to me is…
Being happy and fulfilled in both my personal life and at work. Finding the perfect balance and sticking to it like glue.
Spending as much time as I possibly can with my family and friends because they are my everything.
Helping people with IBS by sharing my embarrassing and brutally honest stories so people know they’re not alone. Every comment, Tweet, DM and email telling me that I’ve helped them makes everything worth while.
Praising my friends and family when they do a killer job because everyone needs a pat on the back.
For me, success is that simple.
What does it mean for you?
