The Success Coach Battles the Definition of Success

The success coach has a unique mission when compared to the words of our good friend Webster. Today the success coach and Webster fight it out and we will let you decide the definition of success you will carry on in your life.

Mr. W’s Definition of Success

1. obsolete: outcome, result

2. degree or measure of succeeding

3. favorable or desired outcome; also : the attainment of wealth, favor, or eminence

4. one that succeeds

What Web’s Words Mean to me

This definition is all about the end of the day. Webster, defines success as what is waiting for you at the end of your journey.

This definition tells me we are waiting on time to get us to this thing called success. We keep hoping to make it somewhere in time to feel success while there is still some available. So I have to wait? When I get there will I know it? When will I finally feel this wonderful thing for myself?

I’ve had days spent mindlessly working toward this idea of success, how about you? The day is lost when it’s all about the result. I’m not sure I like this. I’m ready for the success coach now.

Questions a Success Coach Will Ask You

What if success is not about the end result?

What if taking action now VS waiting for the end result is the instant path to success?

We are in a new age baby! The success coach recognizes that nothing is more powerful then this moment now and taking action!

What The Coach’s Words Mean to me

The success that coaching brings to your life, can be felt stronger then it can be defined.

If you are looking for success in your life, get a success coach to hold you accountable to raising your standards. If you are a coach keep your clients in line and active with the success coaching definition above.

The success coach says it is about this moment now, your power and your standards.

How will you define success and invite more of it into your life today?

You are success waiting to happen. You are a few small shifts in focus away from owning success in this very moment. Reach out and

Grab it. Live it. Love it. Share it!
