Where are you in your life? Do you view your life as successful? As a Wholeness Coach I see very few people who feel successful, and because of that feeling of lack within them life isn't happening for them as they really desire.How do you define success? The world defines success as acquiring multiple rungs up the ladder, accumulating great wealth, owning a big house in a prestigious neighborhood, driving an expensive car which gives the perception you have arrived, or perhaps it's the title you have obtained. But even with these acquisitions, each individual has their own perception of measurement that says you are important enough or wealthy enough to be considered a success.According to Webster, a measure of success is gaining wealth, fame or rank, and by this measurement society views what a successful person is. While there is nothing "wrong" with seeing those who have achieved much as successful, this measurement is only found in the external circumstances of your life.
When you leave this planet all your earthly gains will be left behind as your legacy for the generations that follow to enjoy because only your spirit transcends into the higher realms of existence. Knowing this fact seems to open another way to view success, one that leads an individual to a deeper meaning of what real success truly is.I believe we are spiritual beings here to enjoy a physical life experience. But it goes deeper than just physical enjoyment for I feel our main reason for this experience is to raise our spirit to new levels of awareness of divine love. Love is really all there is and anything that doesn't express as a loving thought, word or deed is not worthy of our time or energy.I see my real success every time I am able to change an individual's frown to a smile, to help someone feel love after being caught in the throws of misery, or the most thrilling of all is opening the door to a person's heart that has been closed to their own magnificence that exists within them.
These cannot be measured by human standards, nor do they receive acclaim through fame or rank, but the inner joy that occurs as an individual discovers their worth and finds purpose to their life cannot be described. To realize you were an instrument who made a difference in someone else's life is real success.I see success in every act of kindness, every loving gesture that comes from an unselfish heart, and even in the very fact that the project you began has been completed with a satisfactory outcome. Webster concurs with my thoughts through another definition of success: a favorable or satisfactory outcome or result. This is powerful! So this means that every time you complete something satisfactorily or you do something for yourself or another with a favorable outcome, you are a success! We've all been there multiple times in our life, probably every single day of that life, and yet we don't recognize how successful we truly are.
I take this a step further because I recognize every outcome as perfect and therefore favorable in some aspect.The INS of real success are simply who you are inside. Are you operating from a loving heart or a frozen one where the base is fear? Do you understand your true magnificence so you can see it in everyone else? When you come from this space your life is always successful on every plane.The OUTS of success are just as simple as the INS.
Whoever you are on the inside is what shows up for everyone to see on the outside. You cannot stop the vibrational flow of energy and what is IN flows OUT!.When you love yourself and feel your worth, you know your personal success and see from a different perspective. What you know and feel IN shines forth to those who cross your path and thus projects OUT! Real success begins in the heart!..Carolyn Porter, D.
