I Am Madeleine


We are all striving to be successful, but do we know what success is?

I get so many emails and message of people saying “congratulations on your success” - and I stop and think what are you congratulating me on?  How do you know that I am successful and how are you defining Success??  

I personally find that success is such a widely used term… because we all assume that success is the same for everyone - so if someone has a good career, wealth, seems to be happy (on social media) AAAAAND have lots of followers then they are by default successful!!! 

BUT that’s so far from the truth!! It’s not one size fits all definition … Not everyone is seeki...

I've been struggling for years now with this question.  You meet someone and within minutes into the conversation - comes the question: So what do you do?? 

Why is it so important what I do? Why do you really care to know?  It's because we are all programmed to categorize people in our heads and put them in a  box.  

So typically the conversation would go like this:

Me: I design events.

Jane: Oh ya?? What kind of events?

Me: All types of events?

Jane: Oh do you do weddings???

Me: Yes we do weddings? OMG so you're a wedding planner - that's so amazing, what a job, do you have any bridezilla stories??
