What allows you to feel successful? Is it a well-executed business deal? Is it accomplishing a goal, either big or small? Or maybe it’s just doing what you said you were going to do.
A sense of accomplishment can create a feeling success.
Recently, I had a goal of what I wanted to accomplish for the day. It was a rather laborious task oriented thing, but a means to an end. Yes it was something that only I could have done, since even though it was task-oriented, it required my personal attention to the details that were involved.
So, although it took a couple of hours of concentrating on working on the computer to accomplish this, and the pain it created in my neck, shoulders and back… I accomplished it… I finished it…
Yes it feels good to have completed this task, but it was only a means to an end. To me that means that if I could have delegated (paid someone to do) this task, I would have. Believe me, I couldn’t, so I am really happy it’s over!
Anyway, I feel successful, because this task will lead to bigger and better things for the future and for that reason, I have not only a sense of accomplishment, but of success!
