Love, business, family, health, performance, friendship, sports, competition, politics, investments, spirituality, school, you name it… regardless of the field, we all want to feel successful.
I guess I fair place to start in common ground this conversation would be to define what success is. By now, makes sense to say that everyone measures success from their own personal expectations and conditions. Therefore to make it universal, let’s just define success with the simple universal feeling that success brings to the heart: Satisfaction.
Satisfaction is defined as the fulfillment or gratification of a desire and the feeling of pleasure that comes from that gratification. Then, when we want to be successful to known our desire first is a must, but knowing the source of that desire, the why of our desire, is essential. See, when it comes to matters of success, the highest values always win, even when sometimes it seems to the contrary and time is needed to see the final development of a story, the highest values always win. They always win because is the law of Nature. Universal law of Nature. Light always overcomes darkness. It is more likely to succeed if your desire is aligned with the laws of nature. You are more likely for you to succeed if what motivates your desire is a positive outcome to all, with no harm in the process.
I am sure there are those who would disagree and list several examples that would seem to prove this statement as mistaken. I mean, after all, war, division, hatred, agression, corruption and violence seems to be pretty successful if you are watching the world news; to this, without being naive, I would whole-hearted say that there are more positive successful stories in our everyday lives than we recognize sometimes, if only we brought our mind back home and look into each others eyes more often, and also we can’t possible surrender success to the wrong causes due to our lack of patient and our ADD. Sometimes it takes time, and considering the planet has been here for centuries…sometimes a lifetime is not enough to declare failure before some challenges to succeed.
Bla, bla, bla, I know you know what I am saying.
