The Fastest Way To Achieve Success
Want to know the fastest way to achieve success?
Define what you have right now as successful. Congratulations, you’ve achieved success!
By the way, this does not mean we don’t continue to have goals, it just means we appreciate the success we’ve achieved. When we can truly define where we are right now as success, then we need nothing more to become successful. Too often, people define success in terms of dollars or possessions. If you define what you have in the bank and on your property right now as success, then you’re no longer wanting; you can begin living.
This is a freeing concept that allows you to focus on real goals; meaningful goals; life goals.
I cannot imagine a worse existence than looking in the mirror during retirement and feeling like you wasted your life. This sort of self pity forgets all of the good times and all of the wins you enjoyed along the way.
If you’re 85 years old and living alone in a trailer on Social Security, congratulations! You’re a success! You are a success as soon as you look around that trailer and define what you have right now as the embodiment of success.
Now, get off your 85-year-old ass and onto your 85-year-old feet and set a new goal. A meaningful goal. A life goal.
