One thing we don’t always talk about is that you define your own success. For some people, success is having a lot of money or a fancy new car. For some, it’s “financial independence”—whatever that means. For others success is something less tangible: love, a nice family, spirituality, and so on. But no matter how you define success, you have to figure out what you want—even if it’s as Frank Zappa once quipped, “Nothing is what I want.”
Success is more philosophy or art than business, technology, or science.
So what is it you want out of life? And what are you willing to do to accomplish it?
No matter how you answer those two questions, you have defined your own success, your own better life.
