What is the Key to Success? Are you wondering how can I be successful in life?
Finding success in life with kids may be challenging but not impossible.
I will outline how to create success even with a family, and it all comes down to being prepared and mindset.
I often find that I redefine success throughout the course of my life. But, that’s
What is the definition of success?
The definition of success is “ SUCCESS is your guide for personal and professional development through inspiration, motivation and training (SUCCESS.com)
But reality is because success means different things to different people its difficult to define.
One person might define success as having the kids well loved and happy. While another mom might define it as having a balance of personal goals and family.
Basically being successful is based on your personal goals and what success feels like to you.
So keeping that in mind what is your definition of success may
HOW TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS IN LIFE
Success Step 1: Define what is Meaningful to You
In order to take the steps to become successful you need to define what success is.
What success looks like in your life depends on your needs currently because what you define as success today may look different several years from now.
Let’s get started!
What is your passion and life purpose?
This will help with clarity of your goals in life.
By discovering your calling and understanding what’s important to you can target where you are going.
“If you do not know where you come from, then you don’t know where you are, and if you don’t know where you are, then you don’t know where you’re going. And if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re probably going wrong.”- Terry Pratchett
Identify Your List of Core Values
Have you established your personal core life values?
These will guide your decisions and enable you to lead in a consistent way.
Because if you are doing something you don’t value then you will not show up.
For example, lets say
- as a parent you value family
- As a wife you value trust
- As a coworker you value respect
- And as a woman you value integrity, confidence and meaningful work.
So the success for you will include pursuing something that fits your
If you wanted to start a side hustle but it didn’t align with your values then you wouldn’t be motivated to continue. Let’s say it’s to be a graphic designer.
Yes it sound fun and you may have considered it but did you think how it would add value to your life if you value meaningful work?
Whereas, if you started a business around being a mentor and inspiring young woman. Then this here aligns with your values and create a legacy for your family. Because at the end of the day you do it for them right?
So pick your life values and the things that are important to you. Then set goals to achieve them so you can find the roadmap to your key to success.
Success Step 2: Set Your Goals & Intentions
GOALS. Do you have them?
Define your short term and long term plans, stay focused, and keep going for your dreams.
The key to success is setting goals, staying consistent with them and rewarding yourself once you achieve them.
So now you know what you value in life.
Now you can narrow down your goals.
It is ok to have them as a parent we tend to put so much into our kids we never take time to set them. But then it goes back to your value and your passion.
You want to be respected, have integrity, and be of service to someone. Then you have to start with respecting your life desires and understand that you matter too.
If you already have goals in mind great! Let’s start checking things off the list.
Success Step 3: Fix Your Mindset
How you think about yourself, see yourself affects your success.
What you think is what you get. Fix your mindset. If you say you can’t then you can’t. If you say you will then you will.
It’s easy to say what you want in life.
But it’s hard to achieve success if you don’t first believe it’s possible.
I often hear words of doubt sound like…
- As a mom isn’t it selfish to follow my dreams
- aybe I should focus on raising my family first then my personal desires
- I don’t have the time to balance both
- chasing success is evil
- I am too old
The truth is all things are possible through him – Matthew 19:26
Don’t limit yourself based on the internal insecurities. Instead, learn how to change your mindset for success. You are power, smart and can have it all.
Use daily positive affirmations to shape your day,
Success Step 4: Be Confident
Confidence is sneaky. Its the biggest thing that holds us back but, can come in the form of fear, doubt, and the negative voice in
If you are confident in the decision you are making then you will go after them let alone stick to them.
So empower yourself so you can be confident in anything you go after. Whether its a relationship, having more children ( got to love them), a new career or starting your own business.
Do with your head up high and understand failure is not negative its apart of the process
So, find out what you’re good at. And work those strengths, that’s a quick key to success!

Success Step 6: Create A Success Routine
Do you have a routine?
It’s pretty difficult to start but once you get in the swing of things it make life so much more simple.
I have a routine to help me get out the house in the morning because with kids its a struggle.
I have a routine for posting my blogs. And for my office projects because I need to stay on top of things at work.
Here are a few things to help you create a success routine,
- Morning Routine offers a powerful way to start your day
- Evening Routine allows you to revaluate what went well and unwind

Success Step 7: Increase Your Spirituality
Hopefully I didn’t lose you here.
There seems to be a divide among being religious vs. spiritual.
I personally believe you can do both. It’s ok to pray, while believing in the law of attraction.
- Create a vision board to manifest your dream
- Feng shui your work, home, and life (podcast)
- Remove negativity from your life.
Final Thought: Key to Success
You have what it takes to be successful in life. You don’t need to look up others habit, steps or models because what worked for them may not work for you.
The key to success is to define it in your own terms, create a roadmap based off your obstacles and strengths, find resources to make the impossible possible, and focus on a positive mindset for maximum growth.
