How do you define success?
It’s nearing the end of 2016 and many people (including me) are looking for success. We all want to feel a sense of accomplishment for all of our hard work this year.
Each of us determines what it means to be successful. I have several author friends and when I ask them if they’ve been successful this year, I get different answers. For some, being successful is making it onto the bestseller list. For others, it’s the amount of sales and/or awards won. For many, it’s name recognition.
This year has been a very successful year for me. I co-wrote and published a collection of love poetry, garnered rave reviews and became a bestseller. Our business increased in both clients and name recognition. I’ve made new friends and let go of some others. I grew a year older, dealt with a few health issues but am in the best shape of my life. I donated more to the food bank than I ever have before. I’m living my dream life and can’t wait to see what 2017 brings.
