The Definition of Success

The Definition of Success



  1. Master your emotions and actions – Internal happiness and meeting your own goals is the most important first step towards success.
  2. Help lots of people – Money doesn’t make you successful but helping others is the key. The more you help, the more successful, as long as #1 is met.

With this as a definition, Sivers tells us to focus on developing four skills:

  • Mastering your emotions.
  • Knowing what other people want in general and what you want in specific.
  • People skills, so you can see things from others perspectives and communicate with them.
  • The ability to focus, to learn and to apply what you learn.

I have yet to master the very first skill.
