A Hollywood Scoop! How to Measure Success

posted by hrossi

Janice Taylor and Our Lady of Weight Loss reporting in from Hollywood! It’s true–my day to ‘shine’ has come … well, maybe?! I am in Hollywood (feel free to sing with me) filming a weight loss documentary entitled “The Inner Weigh.” Am I ‘allowed’ to say the name? Oops … too late – it’s out of the bag!
I’m hanging with the ‘creative types’ – the producer, writer but my favorite is Sarah, the make-up artist, who went wild with the purple eye shadow! Yahoo…
Before I headed out, I did check in with Our Lady of Weight Loss, and asked her if she had any advice for me. She passed along the following tidbit on how to measure success! Enjoy your successes, and I’ll be back home soon with more of the Hollywood scoop.
How to Measure Success
Everyone measures success differently. Some people measure it by how much money they make, some by their career paths and titles, some by a successful marriage, some by how pretty or thin they might be. Others measure it by the size of their house, the kind of car they have and/or the number of cars. Some even measure their success by the number of bathrooms they have in their house! (True. I knew someone who was exceedingly proud, because there were 4.5 bathrooms in her house.)
When we were teenagers, we measured success by the friends we had. Did we hang with the ‘in-crowd?’ Or were we losers!!?!
The truth of the matter is that success cannot be measured by material things, nor can it be measured by fame, fortune or dress size. It is an internal job; it is a state of mind. It’s based on your values. If you are living a life that is in alignment with your values for are more likely to feel successful, and if you feel successful than you are successful.
As Anna Quindlen, author and journalist says, “If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.”
In order to experience success, you do need to know where you are headed, and what success will look like. After all, if you don’t know where you are headed, how will you know when you’ve arrived?
mentalCISE: A mental exercise from Our Lady of Weight Loss!
By starting with a clear definition of what success looks, we have a compass by which to measure their success. Here are some questions that will help you define success and set you in the right direction.
Fill in the blank:
“You are going to feel success when you ________________.”
“Think of how great you’ll feel when you _______________.”
“It’s easy to experience success, when _________________, isn’t it?”
One of the things you’re really going to love about being successful is
_______________________________.
Imagine how great you’ll feel when you _________________.
When you really begin to feel successful, then you ________
_____________________________________________.
When you really begin to feel successful, then you _________.
People can be successful because _____________________.
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
Janice
