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

to them.




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?
