Can you define success in one word?
God recently gave me the chance to ask a group from all around the world this question. Represented were students and professionals from Columbia, South Korea, Brazil, Taiwan, Chile, and China. This was a challenging, but extremely rewarding exercise.
What is your purpose in life?
To build up to the question, everyone in my 10:10 am class in the English Immersion Program at Missouri State University had written their purpose statements for their lives, combining their values, personality, and activities into one power-packed sentence that defines them. I shared mine as an example:
I am designed by God to seek Him, lean in close to Him, love and delight in Him with all I am and empathetically teach, write, and encourage others to do the same and to wholeheartedly connect with God and others across borders of difference.
I was amazed by the diversity and passion in the room as they shared theirs.
Defining Success In One Word
At the end of the program, we took our purpose statements a step further. We defined success for our own lives. Based on our purpose, how would we know we are successful? What would it look like when we achieve success?
For me, success looks like “Connections.” Check out how my students defined success here:
