What Does Success Mean to You?

“If you success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world, but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.”  Anna Quindlen

Having listened to a lot of people who are dissatisfied with their lives, it often comes down to one thing. They haven’t got any sort of connection with what they are doing. They may be doing what their father or mother did, they may feel they have to take on the family business, their career’s advisor may have told them what they think they should be doing. And there they stay feeling like they can’t move to another situation because they need to earn enough dollars to keep the family afloat.

From the outside it may appear that they are successful but for some if they are not on purpose the ‘success’ can feel hollow. They can be left wondering, “is this all there is?” They may start searching, trying new things, taking on new opportunities that come their way only to find they still don’t feel the satisfaction of being on purpose. If you feel you are on purpose, great! If not just recognise that the connection to your authentic self may be a bit watered down. Try having a few moments each day where you sit quietly & ask for the guidance you need to find things that enrich your soul.

Enjoy making a connection with your authentic essence.
