What exactly is success? Many of the books, blogs and other for-profit resources available on success would have us believe that success is making it big in terms of money, power and fame. If you happen to have an executive title or big paycheck, you must be successful, right? This type of success is largely associated with external motivation and gratification.

What is the cost of getting “to the top” or “making it big?” Sometimes, we forget to consider the tradeoffs associated with perceived success, or we only hear about the positive elements of money, fame and status. Rarely do ...

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Part of personal leadership and innovation is self-discovery, which requires introspection and the ability to see the unseen. Sometimes it is necessary to consider a different perspective. We have to shift our thinking to see possibilities in a new light. Sometimes, it is the unobvious that may be the most important. It is important for us to challenge our thinking and traditional thought to redefine success, failure and our ability to take risks.

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Part of personal leadership and innovation is self-discovery. One of the first steps in the process of personal innovation is discovering and defining success and failure.

Cultures and nations around the world define success differently, and it is important for individuals to define their own version of success to live their best lives.

In order to unleash your true potential, become very aware of how you define success. Is it your definition? Or, is it the definition society or others have imposed upon you?

Rarely do we examine success in terms of personal fulfillment, happiness or joy. Maybe your success ...
