What does success mean to you? The dictionary definition of success is:
1. The accomplishment of an aim or purpose
2. The attainment of popularity or profit.
From a spiritual stand point I am going to deal mainly with definition 1. The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.
Are you successful in your life? Are you reaching the goals and dreams that you have put out there? Are you happy when you wake and still happy when your head hits the pillow at bedtime?
The smallest success can affect how you feel about yourself. The smallest success can change your entire perspective on an issue if you allow it to. Many people want their entire life to be successful. They want to have it all and do it all. When they look at this big picture, it is overwhelming and they never seem to reach that content “I did it” point in their life because they don’t look at the tiny successes in their life that add up and attract the larger successes. They don’t look at the failures or mistakes that can be turned around into huge successful events.
Every day I take time to say thank you to Source for at least one success in my life, one blessing. It can be something as small as finding a coin on the ground or a beautiful rock that catches my attention. It is the simple, tiny things that attract that larger successes or blessings into my life. This can be the same for each one of you.
Are you taking time to say thank you Source for whatever it is that has been gifted into your life each day? It doesn’t have to be thank you for the million dollars in my bank account, the perfect man, the perfect woman, the perfect children; it is thank you for the small things in life that add up and attract the larger things in life.
When you can’t see the small miracles or blessings in your life, you miss out on the larger gifts in life. Source wants you to see the little things. Source wants you to be grateful for all. Source wants to see your excitement as you realize each blessing to be just that, a blessing, a success.
I view my life as an ongoing success. I have had lessons, more lessons than most families would see together in a lifetime, and yet when I overcome each one, I consider it a personal success and I am thankful for it. These lessons have allowed me to help others with similar circumstances so the lesson has become a blessing and a success.
Look at your life through new eyes. Thank Source for every little success in your life. Thank Source for every tiny blessing and watch how they start to grow for the better. You can have it all, however you must be able to appreciate the simple in order to truly appreciate the larger part of your dreams.
Namaste and blessings to all, I am grateful for each and every one of you that is a part of my life.
