Perception vs Reality: What Does a ‘Successful’ Career Really Look Like?


What do you think of when you hear the word ‘success’?


Success is a word that holds so much power in society.


Perhaps you associate it with achievement, job status, a luxurious lifestyle, an overflowing bank account, living in a specific location, having your own business, the list is endless.


Have you thought about what “success” really means to you? 


When we think of success it’s easy to find ourselves constantly comparing our journey to others, measuring our worth on superficial indicators, but is that the true meaning of success?


In this episode of The Aligned Achiever podcast we’re peeling back the layers and exploring the reality of what success is beyond the superficial perceptions. I’m taking a look at 6 myths of success and the differences between the perception and reality of having a successful career.





In this Episode We Explore:

  • The perception and reality of success
  • The networks that can help you succeed
  • 6 myths of success and what highly successful people are really doing
  • The 2 things it takes to have a successful career
