2 people on bicycles with the blog post title 3 keys to create your best self

To create your best self, you’ll need to know the answer to three key components, which we’ll discuss these further today.

Click the player to listen to this episode of The BIGG Success Show Podcast. Below is a summary of our discussion.

We say all the time that entrepreneurs know something most people don’t. That is – in our fast-changing, chaotic world,, you can’t predict the future. You have to create your future.

And we found a great quote that emphasizes this point. It comes from author Neale Donald Walsch,

What is Bigg Success?

What is BIGG success

When you study anything, it’s important to understand the definitions. So today, we’re happy to announce that we have refined the definition for bigg success:

Bigg success is life on your own terms

___

marylynnI just love that because it is so empowering. Who else can tell us how to live our lives?

georgeIt’s not about money or material possessions. Or it can be. It’s not judgmental. If it works for you, it works!

___

Your terms, not others

We don’t always live our lives on our own terms. We live by the terms set by others.

Our families and friends, with all good intentions, have their thoughts about how we should live.

Society sets expectations of us. Hollywood and Madison Avenue paint a picture of how our lives should look. Teachers, bosses and others guide us to the life they want us to live.

Sometimes we even place demands upon ourselves that aren’t congruent with what we really want.

Taking charge

Enough is enough. We must take our lives back. We must claim the most precious gifts that we have been given.

To choose who we are and who we become.

To live the life we dream of living.

To find our path to happiness without regard for what others think.

To feel in control no matter what situation we face.

When we feel that we have power over our own lives, we can relish in every moment even if things aren’t going exactly as planned.

Not a selfish endeavor

Life on your own terms sounds selfish, but it’s not. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

It means figuring out how to get from where you are now to where you want to be for the benefit of yourself and the people you care about.

How we’re doing it

We understand this definition well because we’re living it.

___

marylynnI worked in the corporate world. I had outgrown the place where I was working and I didn’t want to move for two reasons: I was engaged to George and the industry I worked in was experiencing troubles so I thought a move would be risky.

___

georgeI’ve been a passionate business owner for years and teach entrepreneurship at our local University. I saw the internet as a great place for learning and a way to combine those two passions. I also have a passion for a certain young lady named Mary-Lynn and working together seemed like a slam dunk!

___

So we created an opportunity for ourselves – Bigg Success – to be partners both personally and professionally. It works for us, but it doesn’t work for everyone. It’s how we’re living life on our own terms.

People in transformation

We’ve designed Bigg Success to be the place for goal-gettin’ go-getters … bigg goal-getters as we like to call you. That’s the reason for the second “g” in Bigg!

Bigg goal-getters don’t just talk the talk. We also walk the walk. Because we’re positive thinking, fun-loving people.

We’re people in transformation. Usually happy, but never content. Always striving to grow. Always looking to expand. Always in search of our next bigg opportunity.

So from two bigg goal-getter to another, welcome to Bigg Success! We look forward to getting to know you better. To growing together. To seeing you reach your bigg goals while we attain ours.

Reach BIGG success in your life even faster

Bigg success is, and always will be, a developing concept. That’s the nature of bigg success!

It’s still about personal and professional development. We think by defining bigg success the way we have, we can have a richer conversation.

We will discover new things which we’ll share with you. We hope you will share your knowledge with us and the entire Bigg Success community.

Because all of us know more than any of us.

Start by telling us what life on your own terms means to you.

You can share by sending us a message.

When you share, whether by writing it or speaking it, you get the ideas out of your head. So you learn and so will everyone else in the community.

By all of us sharing, we learn from each other so we all reach bigg success in our own lives even faster!

Thanks so much for reading our post today.

You’ve probably heard of Brand You. You may have heard that you’re the CEO of your own life. We don’t think either one is correct. Join us next time as we dive deeper into the definition of bigg success to find out why.

Until then, here’s to your bigg success!

Life Changes

child 

I remember my first real full-time job. (Don't we all?) One of the people I worked with was a woman – we’ll call her Gloria.

She was what some might call pushy, brash, or any number of other adjectives. And boy did she intimidate me. She spent a lot of time gossiping with others in the office, and seemed to have a negative opinion about a lot.

Then, Gloria became a mom.

It was a truly amazing transformation. The once harsh person I remember from before maternity leave was a much calmer, less difficult person ten weeks later.

Now I'm not going to speculate on the reasons for this. Maybe she was just sleep deprived?

The point is that she was now acting very differently than before. I bring this up because life changing events really do change you. That's why they call them life changing events.

Whether it's something as serious as adding or losing a family member, or something else, like buying your first home or changing careers, these life changes can be noticeable to the people around you.

I don't expect that everyone will have a serious personality change, but your perspective will change. What you value might change. How you spend your time might change.

Knowing this and actively thinking about potential life changes and how you would behave when they happen to you can only be positive. It can help you determine if you'd need to make other adjustments to accommodate that change.

Examples include:

  • You're very career driven and you never thought you'd want to stay home after your baby was born, but now you really are thinking about it. How would you accommodate a change in career?
  • Your sick parent needs more help than you thought. Would you be willing to move to be closer to him/her? 
  • You get a promotion and pay raise. Do you intend to spend the money to buy a new home or invest it for a rainy day?

These scenarios and many more like it are good to contemplate at every stage of life, whether you are just starting out on your quest for bigg success, or are already there and want to put the icing on the cake.

They are exercises in values assessment. And where we want to be the most successful is in those areas we value the most.
