Outside influences rarely determine my success
because it is driven by my standards. I set my own
definitive scale of measurement for how well I do in
Society tries to tie me to certain standards for success,
but I avoid falling into the trap. I know that the easiest
way to feel unfulfilled is living according to the ideals
of others. My focus is on living an authentic life that I
am able to confidently stand behind.
My peers realize some achievements before me but I
avoid feeling less accomplished. I know that there is a
time and season for each experience in life.
I give attention to my own goals and work hard to
achieve them. The noise from outside influences
rarely gets me to lose focus.
The experiences of others sometimes serve as
teaching tools. I use their examples to help me to
know whether I am on the right track. Even so, I avoid
looking at their result as my standard for success.
Today, I commit to remaining focused on my internal
standards for success and decide for myself which
goals I want to pursue. I am unfazed by the
achievements of others, and I avoid comparing myself
1. How do I arrive at the standards for success that I
set for myself?
2. How do I determine when it is time to adjust my
standards or my goals?
3. How do I react when I am unable to achieve
success as planned?
