For some it may be that they have bladder control today. For others it may be defined by having a certain salary, job position, title, diploma, good communications with family and friends, etc. Who is happier? Yup, the bladder control definition of success is much happier!
Dr. Deepak Chopra defines success as:
“the continued expansion of happiness and the progressive realization of worthy goals.”
Well, what does that mean?
For me, it simply means:
Uncovering, love, equanimity, joy and compassion that already exist within.
Yes, life happens, and we feel it. And we can choose to return to our natural state of love, equanimity, joy and compassion for all beings.
What is your definition of success?
You can’t get there without addressing the question. You may think you do not have time to ponder this question. However, not having time to become aware of your definition of success is like saying you do not have time to be happy! If we don’t define the destination, even the best GPS in the world won’t direct us to where we want to go.
Take the time, connect with your definition of success, then make it a priority.
Rally support from friends, family and colleagues. Let success know you have heard it’s calling, and you are on your way right now!
