Episode 96 – How to Measure Success – the Hidden Beauty behind our ‘Failures’

During this episode, Lucinda and Mariëlle talk about their ‘failures’ and what wonderful things these actually brought them.

Here are some of the topics that came up:

  • That, just because something didn’t go the way you wanted, it doesn’t mean it didn’t go actually the way you needed
  • How our sense of success and how we measure it is intricately related to our patience levels
  • How Lucinda’s first novel wasn’t what she’d wanted it to be, but it did bring her onto this writing journey and that’s a wonderful thing in itself
  • How, a week after the launch of her Kickstarter campaign, Mariëlle found a way to shift her perspective to focus less on the private goal she’d set for herself and more on all the awesome stuff that has happened and that she achieved because of the campaign.

Mariëlle’s campaign ends on the 9th of November. If you’re curious to see what her campaign looks like and how it’s doing, check it out here:

  1. When speaking about enjoying the journey… Last year at this time I was at a horrible job where I was coming home almost every day crying and so burned out I couldn’t do anything, but now new job and even though it’s been a harder to get into the habit of writing I am really making sure to not push myself too hard. It’s writing. It’s supposed to be something I do for the overall enjoyment of bringing stories to life. I shouldn’t have to push myself to burn out or anywhere near that overwhelmed feeling I had while working the last job. So in the end my point is I am doing a better job enjoying the journey more.
