Why Should You Define Success?

Not everyone considers success the same. Although there are common themes that define success for most people, there are still variations in what individuals, families, and cultures value. For some, it might be owning a home, having a certain degree, or eventually having grandchildren (or maybe that those grandchildren go on to college).

But for you to really be able to evaluate if the decisions you are making now are worth your time, resources and energy–you must decide for yourself what you will define your success by. Too many people waste their lives away before they realize that they’ve been chasing a form of success that doesn’t really matter to them. And for those at Average Advocate, I know you don’t just want to be “successful,” but you want to make a difference in the world, too!

Redefining Winning at Life

This is why we can’t continue to subconsciously define our success by how others define it, but must determine its meaning for ourselves.

Will it be in how much money we earn? Or how much freedom we have? Our success might be in respect we receive, renown we’re given, or titles we earn. But it also might be in the way we serve the world, live justly, or carry out our beliefs.

Hi! Let me introduce myself with my lovely cheesy fake smile. I’m Elisa Johnston and this is where I base online (in real life I’m usually in beautiful San Diego, CA).

I’m here to empower you,  an everyday, super busy, normal person who’s figuring out this adulting thing and who cares about stuff. I help you to be an influencer who makes a difference in the world. 

Stick around Average Advocate and together we will move past the overwhelm of life and the despair of global problems, find your purpose, and discover what your best role is to change the world is. 

I’m no magician. I just encourage and guide as I  write, coach, speak, consult and start-world-changing things to help us move forward.  

In case I sounded unapproachable, let me tell you a little bit about myself. Besides empowering this community, I spend most of my time attempting to live intentionally in my faith (I’m a Jesus person), in my home (the husband + raising my three kids + adult kid), in my relationships, and being creative and adventuring wherever and whenever I can. (Ya, I might live in beautiful San Diego, but I’m always itching to explore.)

Now it is your turn…  What’s your story?
