Measuring Your Success
"Success is not measured by money or fame but by how you feel about your own goals and accomplishments and the time and effort you put into them." - Willie Stargell
How are you feeling this week? Is failure or success your current mood as you work your way through the day?
Society would have us believe that our success is determined by the prestige of one's job, the amount of money you make or how much "stuff" you own.
Success isn't the new car with all of the latest gadgets. Success is not the 5-bedroom home with a large flat-screen television in every room. Success isn't being the most photographed person at a party.
Success is what you feel inside.
There are many people with all of those material things that define success in society, yet they do not feel successful. There are many people that have very little and they too feel unsuccessful.
It is within you that success is found.
This does not mean to cease moving your life towards being more successful. And the idea that having nothing is something you have to be content with. No, that is not what I am talking about.
What it means is to be content in yourself. If you are not content in self, your tendency will be to focus upon the discontentment. To be content frees up your energy and focus in order to achieve great things in your life.
Feel successful in your own self and watch as success becomes ever more present in your life.
Stay inspired my friends!
