What defines success? It’s a good question. So many see it as money/sales and fame. While I am really happy that my artwork sells, it isn’t the biggest part of how I define my accomplishments. It’s actually quite small…
I thought today would be a good day to remind ourselves of all of the “good” in our lives and what truly makes us a success. It’s a simple little exercise that might take some thought, but surely success can be found in even the smallest of things…
Pick one or more ways you are successful and leave a comment. I would love to hear from you!
I will go first…
I am a success because: in my life, the people around me have always underestimated me. When they said “you can’t do it”, I always did. Whether it was mucking horse stalls in Florida’s Summer heat, defeating cancer naturally 15 years ago or selling my art and earning a living with it. When they said “no way”. I’ve done it!

I too was told I wasn’t smart enough, pretty enough, or clever enough. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this only made me stronger. I thank those people for without them I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
Awesome for you! I grew in a very similar way! However, you can raise strong confident children without criticism. My daughter is proof!

…..because I refused to diminish myself, I overcame cancer twice, found my spiritual self, and played nicely most of the time.,
Kudos to you Rob!

Sharon, that’s inspiring! Kudos to you! 🙂 I have achieved my dreams that I set up a long time ago and proven that the study that I chose, in the end, has helped me to reach my goal – I remember there were people who underestimated it 🙂
That is awesome! And always room for new dreams too. 🙂
I am a success because I have learned to believe in myself (still a work in progress at times). And I beat cancer twice.
That is awesome Robin! Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting!
