A simple Test to measure success

The Test — TED Talk

Suppose you were to give a TED talk to an audience of 100 people including yourself. At the end of the speech, how many of them will be inspired/impressed by you?

Analysis

This test tells us that your percentage success depends on the following

· Your audience

How accomplished are the people in the audience? If you are surrounded by highly accomplished you would appear less successful because it is difficult to impress them.

· Your achievements

This is a no-brainer. The Number and the scale of achievements will be crucial to the impact of your Ted Talk. Having More and Greater achievements make you more successful.

· Your presentation

How well you present your achievements is also important. Better presentation could boost up your success score significantly.

Takeaways

· No one is a failure, it is just less successful

If you are hardworking, in the worst case you will inspire yourself which means 1 % success.

· No one is 100 % successful everywhere

Since your success rating depends on the audience and you can’t impress/inspire every person on the planet. You will never be 100 % successful.

· You can always improve

There is always scope for improvement. Which makes success a journey and not a destination.

Conclusion

If you wish to be successful start by accepting your current level of success and work on your achievements and presentation.

Envision your TED talk and keep improving
