Success means many things to different people…
A nice house, a nice car, financial freedom, spiritual riches, the list goes on.
The way we are conditioned to think about success is usually as a means to an end.
Such as, I will be successful when I have this or when I attain that thing.
I prefer to think about success in terms of a direction to be heading.
For example, if we are aligned with our chosen purpose that in some way enriches our soul, and we have made consistent steps on that path, then we are a success.
There was one definition I learn some time ago, and I have adopted it ever since:
“Success, is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”
I think that is a great perspective on success. as a continuous process of uncovering, artistically experiencing your chosen Journey.
A short story:
A traveler in ancient Greece, the story goes, met an old man walking along the road and asked him how to get to Mount Olympus. The old man, who turned out to be Socrates, replied: “Just make sure that every step you take is in that direction.”
So how do we know where our own Personal Mount Olympus actually is?
Well, quite easy folks.
It’s sitting in a place very close to you –
In your heart.
If for any reason, you are feeling unfulfilled with your life and chosen direction, please know that you can always turn it around.
Become your own best friend again and ask yourself often, what would you love to do with your life?
Begin to make that plan. Visualize it happening. Take the necessary steps to prepare the transition.
Sometimes it’s scary, sometimes we have to be brave.
Sometimes it’s worth remembering that the path only appears when we step out onto it.
It’s your choice, it always has been.
With Love and Light,
