Success – How do you know you have it?

There are so many definitions around the word success; so many in fact that I feel the word has really become extremely overused.  The traditional understanding society has associated with success, refers to how much money someone earns or how much wealth they have managed to accumulate. Is that what success means to you or is becoming successful all about inviting meaning, fulfillment, happiness, joy, grace and satisfaction into your experience.

The thing, which has stood out for me the most, as I have travelled down the path towards my own unique definition of success, is that once I knew what success really meant to me. Attracting exactly that into my experience, still required wok, but the work became fun and enjoyable. In other words, once you know exactly what you want, attracting just that feels effortless. Incredibly as I have grown and become more, I have not only attracted the life of my dreams, but also attracted abundant wealth into my experience.

Life is about Meaning, Fulfillment and Grace.

Yes to be truly successful you need to be clear on exactly what you want to achieve. I have tried life both with and without wealth and definitely find the former to be more desirable.  However wealth in the absence of family, friends, health or happiness is pointless.

The success I want you to uncover is obviously unique to you and your own circumstance. The challenge when attracting the success you desire into your experience is based on how you can gain great abundance (not just money), but not at the expense of your emotional or physical wealth.  You must find a way to reach your financial and career goals without making your relationships with your children or spouses the sacrificial lambs. You must also guard your health, your mind and nurture all the relationships you have with the important people in your life.

Success needs Health

You must find the way to realizing all your goals around abundance without sacrificing the abundant health that is all of our birth rights.  There is not a person alive that would not give every cent they own to regain their good health when they are diagnosed with terminal disease. The same is also true for those individuals that have lost the love of their spouse or children as a result of their eagerness to pursue financial gain or material riches.

Financial success achieved at the expense of the rest of your life is empty and pointless

Don’t become one of those people that are so busy pursuing wealth that you lose sight of what your True Life Purpose is and miss out on relishing in the joys that life has to offer.  Remember that living every day of your life fully makes the journey worthwhile, it is crucial to create a successful and fulfilling balance in all seven areas of your life.

Action Idea:  Sit and imagine yourself at the end of your life.  What actions, people or things would you like to have done more or less of?

What would you have liked to have done more of?



What would have liked to have done less of? 



Wow isn’t it amazing you have the rest of your life to live, right now, why waste another minute doing things that you will regret later and more importantly why are you not doing more of what you love doing.  Live every moment that life offers you, live on purpose and mostly, just love the journey and LIVE.

Life is a series of trade offs and every wasted moment is spent forever.  Time and therefore your life are traded for the things you choose to do.  You have an incredible privilege right now, that privilege is awareness.  Use that awareness to create the life of your dreams and have no regrets about what you did with your precious life. 

You have had the benefit of imagining yourself at the end of your life.  You do not need to have any regrets about having the ability to go back in time to change things; you are in the NOW and can create things exactly the way you want them to be.  Make the different decisions right now that you would have wished you could have made if you really were at the end of your life right now.
