New release - PASSION STRUCK


How Do You Create True Success?
Life lessons from the inspiring story of Barbara Corcoran

Today Barbara Corcoran is a TV personality on Shark Tank, runs a $5 billion real-estate company, and is an author and entrepreneur coach. But, her life didn’t start with true success. In this episode of the Passion Struck Podcast I explore how you can achieve great things by defining success on your terms.

All around us, people talk about true success all the time and the repercussions of what it is and how it is achieved weigh heavily in society today. These definitions are thrust on us by how others perceive our success and how we define it for ourselves. As I’ve discussed in previous episodes, many people define success in materialistic ways such as earning a degree, buying a house, a car, or a yacht. Others believe it is determined by their career, awards, accolades, and recognition. And some define success as getting married and having a family.  

But have you ever thought that true success is doing the things you love when you want to do them and with whom you want to do them with? That is how to be successful in your life.

And in case you didn’t already know it, John R. Miles (@john_r_miles) takes your requests for topics on Momentum Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Momentum Friday episodes, drop us a line at [email protected]Let’s dive in!

True success is not determined by a single event but by a succession of steps and actions.
