Underachievement Caused By The Wrong Definition of Success

“We fail the minute we let someone else define success for us.”

― Brené Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.


Underachievement can be impacted by allowing others to define SUCCESS and FAILURE for you. 


I invite you to consider these questions:


  • How do you define ACHIEVEMENT?
  • How do you define CREATING RESULTS?
  • How do you define SUCCESS?
  • How do you define FAILURE?
  • Which results do you really want to create?
  • If no one noticed what you did or did not create, what would you create simply because the thought of doing it makes you giddy?
  • When you are trying to “prove” something to someone, what are you really trying to prove?
  • Who are you trying to “prove” to?

    I find these weekly podcasts to be super inspirational, they seem to always motivate me to look at my purpose. Matt not only brings in his personal life experiences but he delivers them in such a way that they are relatable.
