Who gets to define success?
Harvard Business School’s Robert Steven Kaplan argues in his new book, What You're Really Meant to Do: A Roadmap for Reaching Your Unique Potential, that success is not about meeting someone else's definition, but reaching your potential by defining it on your own terms.
So how do you get there? Kaplan shares a specific and actionable approach to defining your own success and reaching your potential. In today's lesson, Kaplan speaks of the importance of being able to tell your personal story -- and not just along the lines of the traditional success story narrative.
Kaplan argues that you need to be able to tell yourself the story of your setbacks as well in order to overcome unconscious roadblocks that tell you things like "I'm not good enough!"
