Q: What does success mean to you?
A: Success to me is really living out my days, my months, my years and having no regrets in any area of my life, particularly in my relationships:
I said what I needed to say when I should have said it.
I apologised sooner, quicker, faster.
I said I love you more than enough.
I forgave myself and others effortlessly.
My relationships were bountiful.
Success to me is not shrinking when I had an opportunity to play big even if I was scared, that I took a leap off the ledge, not even knowing if my parachute would open.
Success to me is living out my purpose—that, ultimately, when my time is done, I will have lived every day writing the most amazing story. When I sit down to rest, I will be plum tuckered out because I played full out. I won’t take any extra energy with me. I will leave all my wisdom, all my nuggets… I will leave everything here to live and grow.
That’s success to me.
