In this episode of Success That Lasts, Jared Siegel discusses what defines success.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Purpose must be deliberately conceived, chosen, and then pursued, according to Jared. Success is subjective to everyone, and we must each choose what it means to us. If we allow others to define our success, we could spend our whole lives chasing after someone else’s definition.
  • Defining success by an outcome, something out of your control, is more than likely to leave you at the mercy of luck, Jared says. It will never be up to you whether you succeed or not. “The wise man looks upon the purpose of all actions, not their consequences,” he quotes. “Beginnings are in our power, but Fortune judges the outcome, and I do not grant her verdict upon me.”
