Are you leading a successful life? What does that mean to you? What does success mean to you? It could be immense wealth, but, what about great health and fantastic relationships with family and friends? Being a stay-at-home mom to your children while earning an income or writing a book, whether it makes you a NY Times best-selling author or not. Success begins in your mind.
Whatever success means to you, including health and happiness, a passing grade in school, making the elite sports team, creating wealth for yourself and helping others, all starts with how you think.
Are you doing what you love or pushing yourself to make enough money so that you can retire and start to enjoy your life? No one knows how much time we have. What if you fill up your bank account or pension fund and then don’t get a chance to enjoy it?
Unseen forces are at play and, if you continue to force yourself to work at a job that you hate or bang your head on the wall to try to achieve success it will continue to elude you. There is a better way. Relax, breathe, let go of everything that no longer serves you and focus on what you really want. Force negates.
Become the best version of yourself. Increase your inner wealth, improve your personal currency. Anything worthwhile is worth growing; cultivating better relationships starts with a better relationship with yourself. Value your own worth and you will begin to value life; those around you will place more value on you and the relationship.
“Success is the progression of a worthy ideal”- Earl Nightingale. A success mindset is required before you will become successful in the areas of life that are most meaningful to you. A successful person continues to grow and develop every day.
Do you have a worthy ideal? A goal that is worthy of you? As humans we all want to be more, do more and have more. As spiritual beings we all desire expansion and fuller expression. Aspire to take your life to the next level in every area that is important to you.
Success begins in the mind. Whether you think you can do something or not you are right! What do you want to succeed at that seems impossible? Don’t ignore current results, just start thinking success and give more thought energy to how you want your life to be instead of what it currently looks like.
Desire, expectation, belief and persistence are all vital parts of the recipe for success.
