How to be successful?!
How far away from you is Your Success?
I’m not even asking what IS success for YOU. Though it’s a very important and fundamental question I’m curious to know:
Where do you place yourself now in relation to your summit of success, and how can you really measure the distance when life keeps on moving and shifting?
Sometimes life looks very tricky and messy. You don’t know how you’re going to pay your next bill, you don’t know how you’re going to cope with this fight with your partner, you don’t know if you’re going to find your new direction in life, you don’t know if you’re going to survive this illness….
Life has a tendency to stand in our way to success and take us to the edge as if to say - And what are you going to do now?
There are so plenty of formulas to teach you how to achieve success but there’s one thing that cannot be encapsulated in a formula:
Your life is your success story. Can you read between the lines?
I can come up with many things to say about how to deal with these tricky situations, but I can guarantee that for each you will have a “Yes, but…” response. You will be totally convinced why this or that cannot apply to you - because… - and why this or that is impossible in your particular situation - because…. - So what do we do?
We go straight to the root of all of it.
Why don’t you BELIEVE your situation can be different / resolved in time?
Why don’t you BELIEVE the support you need is out there, not so far away?
Why don’t you BELIEVE you have what you need in order to grow success exactly from where you are at now?
What we believe in is how we shape success.
If we believe we can’t reach our success because we can’t see it then we have a very limited sight. If we believe our situation is a good candidate for the nobel prize for suffering - why should we let it go?! If we believe that “this is it” then this is how it’ll be.
But if we uproot that believe - wow, that’s a totally different world.
No one success is identical to another. Because your life is the dictation of Your Success. And I dare say that the only way to get there is through shining the light on what is happening to you right now.
P.S. I know this is not what you might have expected as a “being successful” pitch, but expected is boring ;) and often quite limited. Enjoy.
