Make it Happen Monday: Definition of Success
Do you have a personal definition for success? You know, a way of measuring if you’re achieving all you strive to be in life or if you’re making the kind of impact you want to leave on our World.
There are countless definitions for success out there, but my favorite has always been this one by Bob Dylan. I’m not some sort of Dylan music fanatic, but I sure do love what he has to say about this:
If I can get up, spend quality time with my Family, get out for a great ride on my bike, laugh, and do all the other things I enjoy before jumping back in bed for the night…..then it’s been a totally successful day to me.
When it comes to cycling or other sports, I would define success as performing at a level that I expect myself to achieve….or higher. It’s been years since I have went out golfing, but whenever I get out for a game, I call it a success as long as my strokes feel good and I’m enjoying myself. Of course when it comes to cycling, I’m always Loving the Bike….but my ride is a true success if I pushed myself to a level that I feel proud of and I get back home feeling a strong sense of accomplishment.
What is your definition of success….for Life, Cycling, or anything else? Have a Make it Happen Day.
