In today’s episode, Anna continues to explore how you can begin to answer the question, “what is ‘success’ to you?” with three different practical exercises to try.
(1:00) “I always say that you need to think big first and then later, once you’ve uncovered those secret ambitions and dreams, you can of course – and you need to – narrow down your options and filter for feasibility.”
(2:29) “Please humour me here: forget where you are right now, forget the ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ and all the reasons why you think it’s not possible; because defining what success means for you involves looking at the ‘what’ and the ‘why’, why it’s important to you – but the ‘how’ is going to come later.”
(3:56) “Often, people will tell me, ‘Oh, I don’t know what I want!’ but deep down, I think if you admit it to yourself (if not to others yet), often you really do know, you’re just not allowing yourself to believe that something is a possibility. It’s much safer to keep doing what you’ve been doing, not articulate what you really want – because then, of course, if you say what you want, the risk and possibility is that you open yourself up to failure if you’re unable to achieve it.”
