The Success Indicator

Happy Hump Day ladies! I wanted to share an info-graphic on success. I thought this was quite interesting, and I would love to hear your thoughts. I think if we look closely here, we can all own traits of both success and unsuccess.


Along the lines of success, I watched Oprah’s Lifeclass with Brene Brown this week. If you don’t know about Brene Brown and her new book Daring Greatly, I suggest you get cracking. She said one of the greatest things I’ve heard in a long time.

“If you’re not in the arena getting your ass kicked on occasion, then I’m not interested in your feedback. You don’t get to sit in the cheat seat and criticize my appearance or my work with mean-spiritedness if you’re also not in the arena. Now, if you’re also in the arena, and you’re putting your ideas out there and you’re owning them, and you’re saying “I disagree with you about this and that, I think you’ve got this wrong”—then not only do I invite that, I freaking love that. I love that.” – Brene Brown

I love this idea of putting yourself out there to achieve success, being “in the arena,” in the game, being vulnerable, and then practicing SELECTIVE HEARING from the critics. I think it’s quite excellent advice.

Here is how DARING GREATLY came to be. This is page ONE of Brene’s book. I am in the midst of reading it – I bought it this weekend.

And, I’d love know, WHAT IS SUCCESS TO YOU? What are your thoughts about your critics, success, unsuccess and being vulnerable? I’d love us to talk about this….


  1. The most successful person is the one you see who can sit in a room for a long period of time without any stimulation or connection to anything For a person to sit in an airport bus office and be calm and not be addicted to outside stimulation is the sign not only of success but of true happiness
    The world is forever sending information for us to hear but it rarely sends knowledge.

    Rare to see!

    The only person to whom one must answer is the person in the mirror Once you are happy with he or she you are doing it right
