• Really powerful questions posed here, thanks Anne. We so often define ourselves by what others consider success. I remember feeling at my lowest ebb a couple of months ago when a well-meaning relative told me to go and get a “little job in a shop” – the implication being that I was a failure because I wasn’t earning lots of money or doing a ‘proper job’. For me the only real measure of success is how ‘happy’ you are. I’m very happy to be self-employed, but I’d be happier (and therefore successful) if I could earn enough money from all my hard work that I don’t have to worry and I’d be happier (and therefore successful) if I can influence and inspire others to do the same. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing that Amy. It’s certainly the case that many people believe that money represents success and you can’t be successful unless you make lots of money. Whilst many of us have other criteria that rank higher than making money it can be hard to stay resolute in the face of media representation. We all have to find our own balance and reflecting on our values and our own aspirations regularly will help us do that.
