Discover & Create Success on Your Terms

Ep: 134

You have a good job. On paper, everything about your life looks like success—you’re making a great income, performing at the top of your field, and quickly climbing the ladder. The only problem is that you don’t feel happy, but the thought of change has you feeling scared of what you might have to sacrifice. So instead, you keep trudging along, sucking it up at work, and hoping that the next achievement will FINALLY make you happy.

If this is how you’ve been feeling about your life and career, you’re not alone.

Following a path to success that’s been paved by others leads to disappointment and a lack of true fulfillment. If you’re wondering “Is this is as good as it gets?”, the answer is a resounding “no”.

Success is what you make it, and that starts with knowing exactly what that means for you.

In today’s episode, Blake shares why versions of success that aren’t your own will ultimately lead to disappointment. She explains why we can end up feeling guilty when we’ve “made it” but we’re still not satisfied, and how that can affect our health and our families.

  2. Life lived based on other people’s values or other people’s perspectives of success will ultimately lead to health issues, a lifetime of regrets, and disconnection from the very people you care about the most.
  3. You have the power to change your circumstances.
  4. That desire that you have for a different life, it’s there for a reason. It’s the lighthouse that’s beckoning you to a better future. It’s only when you begin to trust that there can be something more, something better for you, that you give yourself the permission to seek it.
