How do you define success??? Look to mindfulness
Success comes in different flavors to different people
Some want to change the world, like Gandhi or Mother Teresa.While others seek fame, fortune or self-fulfillment. Yet, you must first search your soul to find you definition of success. And this requires first seeking a level of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is an important step towards really understanding what YOU believe success looks lie…
For example, it took me many years to learn this important life lesson. At one time I had the belief that my status as a physician would bring me respect and wealth. However, I never felt successful. Only over time was I able to realize that my belief in what success looks like was far different that what was first envisioned.
Thus, I needed to be self-fulfilled in knowing that what I do makes a difference in this world. And only now, through my writings and volunteer work as a Micro Mentor have I been able to taste the nectar of self-fulfillment and attain a level of success.
Take time to first ground yourself in the important practice of mindfulness. Because mindfulness allowed me to open up my eyes and see the world more clearly. This calming practice allows you to self-reflect with greater clarity and discovers your true beliefs. Therefore, a clearer mind allows me to respond rather than react to the daily challenges that arise.
Consequently, once you attain a modicum of mindfulness – you can go out, move forward and plan your journey to attain personal success.
Personal success is attainable for all, but it takes hard work – it will not simply fall upon your lap. Go forward and earn it!
