What Allows You to Feel Successful?

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!
