In our society success seems to be defined by sales numbers, collecting awards and degrees, follower numbers, likes, possession… Yes, we all need to make a living and of course, want to enjoy life since money still rules this world. But even aside from the thoughts about our financial security still, the need for having more and more and more doesn’t stop. As long as society plays that game, those plans will work out.
But does it make one happy? Or does it only feed the hunger to keep up that race? Isn’t there the motivation behind to only satisfy my own ego by impressing others and their egos how much better I am? Sometimes even by faking results. There is something for eveyone and that is why no one must be discouraged to share their skills. Not the majority says what’s good. Especially, when it is more of a herd reaction to go with the crowd than a personal decision. In that case, the object everybody is running after is an empty shell and will break sooner or later.
I don’t say success has nothing to do with money and acknowledgment. Making money with what I do can be a consequence of success and yes, a confirmation that I must do something quite right. But money and becoming famous should not be the motivation and driving force behind my deeds. If what I do is coming from the heart and not from a place of being focused on money and achievement, it will always turn out wonderfully and will bring beautiful confirming successful results.
I would like to know what success means to you.
In Love and Light
