Defining success + creating a vision statement

If you haven't yet, definitely take a minute to read this super inspiring post by the lovely Kaileen Elise about crafting one's own definition of success. "What does success mean to you?" she asks.

This is what I wrote:

"To me, success means living fully and in the moment; creating a life filled with positive people, joyful adventures, and uplifting work; caring for my body and soul; honoring my creativity (whether it be writing, drawing, cooking, etc.); finding balance; and infusing compassion toward myself and others into my everyday actions."

Thinking about what success means to me reminded me of something I have been meaning to do: write my personal vision statement as described in Kimberly Wilson's Hip Tranquil Chick. From the book: "A vision statement is a simple promise to the world that your presence on this earth is not in vain, but grounded in true intention." (You can read more about creating your vision statement on page 64 of the book or in the Tranquility du Jour archives.)

I'm planning to take my definition of success and use it as material for my vision statement. Do you have a vision statement? If so, I'd love to hear it!

Thank you for reading my post. I am glad you found it inspirational. This is a good reminder to focus on our true intentions instead of getting stuck in our day to day events. Over the weekend I am hoping to set aside time to contemplate my definition of success - and now to also develop a personal vision statement. I would love to hear yours when you're done! xo, kaileenelise
