Thursday's Child: Defining Success

Thursday's Child has far to go...

Success is defined in the dictionary as "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose." Other definitions include, "the attainment of popularity or profit," a person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains prosperity," and "the correct or desired result of an attempt." Stephen Covey put it best when he said, 
"If you carefully consider what you want to be said of you in the funeral experience, you will find your definition of success."

For the past three years, I've set a theme for my year, rather than a resolution. The first year, my theme was "Dauntless"; year two, it was "Living Artfully; and year 3, the theme was "Inspiration." This year's theme is "Success." My intention is to define it for myself, and celebrate it one day at a time.

I have no designs on fame and fortune. At this juncture in my life, I have less years ahead of me than behind me. My desire now is to leave a legacy behind for which I can be proud. I have short and long term goals, of course. And, I never plan to stop learning. But, the past few years have really shown me what it means to want to serve others over self.

So, I've started reciting my daily successes each evening. Once I order my jar from Sharon @ Touch of the Goddess, I'll be putting them into the jar. At the end of the year, I'll review my successes, and rejoice in a year of productivity and learning.

How about you? Do you mark the new year in a specific way with intentions and goals for what you want to accomplish?

My friend, Samantha, sets at least one bucket list goal for the new year. I'd love to hear from you- comment here or on the Wildly Witch Facebook page. 

Sharing is caring! You never know who you may inspire with your new year plans!
