EP114: Steve Sims – Understanding the true definition of success

We live in a world where the idea of success is being dictated to us by social media. In a post-truth world where society is so susceptible to being lied to, this begs the question: “how do we really measure success?” 

The Real-life Wizard of Oz, Steve Sims, is a sought-after coach and speaker who helps people unleash their true potential by focusing on themselves. Like many entrepreneurs, he failed multiple times and left his career to pursue greatness. Steve has been on a colorful journey, having met and worked with such luminaries as Elon Musk and Elton John. These days, he uses his real-life failures and challenges to change people’s mindsets and unleash their true potential.

On this episode of Perfectly Mentored Podcast, Steve and Jason discuss the real definition of success and what people need to have in order to achieve it. Steve also shares his thoughts about the importance of making meaningful relationships with people who bring value to your life, having the courage to take chances, and offering valuable experiences to other people.
