If you want a life that is joyful, enjoyable and happy then the swiftest and surest way to achieve it is not by rushing out to attain more or busily working to be ‘your best self’ it is actually to appreciate who you truly are already and all that you have today. This is the birthplace of fulfilment.
Of course there is much to be said by pursuing this, working on that etc…it is part of how we learn, gather an ‘intellect’ and how we achieve things. That’s all great but happiness, contentment are about today, now, success tends to be about tomorrow. Even when you have the trophy in your hands after a few minutes, hours or days you start to think about ‘the next thing’. And so it goes on and on.
Meanwhile happiness, gratitude, joy, inner peace – all the things you were looking for which you think will be in the box called ‘success’ – are waiting patiently and graciously for you. The only true becoming is to as I put it ‘become who you are’ and that is actually an embracing of yourself and life itself. By all means play with and enjoy success but success is not happiness although it has a touch of its perfume.
