We all want to be successful in life. Success has meaning to us in a very personal way. Some people long for financial freedom to be able to live out their lives in relaxation with enough money to pay the bills. Other people define success in terms of power, they want to have a large span of control. Still others think being successful means having excellent personal relationships and love in their lives.
I have been highly influenced by two authors who taught the world some vital lessons about what success really is. Those authors are Napolian Hill and Earl Nightingale. I have extracted a white paper on the subject of defining success from my recent book, Leading with Trust is like Sailing Downwind. Here is a link to that white paper. You may be surprised by the simple description of success given by Nightingale that can have great impact on you and your friends at work.
