In my year-long Masterful Living we redefine success means to us. So often people define success as something achieved on the outside. Success in the world is what most people think of.
Success in the world is always illusory. Even if you build the tallest building, someone might decide to fly a plane into it and send it crashing to the ground, making of it a monument to hurt and anger. Even if you win the Academy Award for Best Actor like Paul Muni or Paul Scofield for spectacularly brilliant performances – people might completely forget you ever existed or that accomplishment ever happened. And would it make any difference if they did remember?
Someday it may be that no one will remember Madonna or Tom Cruise. Franklin Pierce was President of the United States of America for 4 years and I’ll bet you cannot name one thing he did that is noteworthy.
If we define success by something outside of us then we’re missing the opportunity to experience true and lasting success. What is success to you? What do you really value most?
The only thing you can take with you from this human life is your awareness. What is your focus now? Are you placing your attention on something that has lasting value? If not, then is it a surprise that you don’t feel successful?
What I love about the power of an effective spiritual practice is that you can immediately start to feel successful. With a very simple spiritual practice you can change your life from messy to miraculous. Are you willing?
