How is success measured?


You need a 7 Day BrainwashEveryone, I suppose, wants to be a success.

But have you ever stopped to define success? Are you aware that some of us have such a complex definition of success that we practically guarantee our own failure?

Let’s see – it’s lots of money. But how much exactly? And don’t we all know plenty of examples that just goes to show money doesn’t bring happiness?

Okay then, it’s lots of money and happiness. But what exactly is happiness? Is it when I’ve finally acquired everything on my dream shopping list, including the villa on the French Riviera and the luxury yacht? (Plus, of course, the perfect relationship). Then what will I do?

It’s being adored by throngs of fans. (Ugh – no privacy!). It’s … it’s … Darn it! I thought I knew!

Shall I tell you what it is? Okay, I will. It’s a paradox!

Being successful means being absolutely perfectly content and at peace with what you have and who you are right now, whilst at the same time having the drive, the passion to be and do more.

And when you have everything you desire, there is only one thing to do: Give away what you’ve got to others, whether it’s by teaching or by example or by helping. The more you give, the more you’ll receive – in gratitude, in experiences, in love and yes, in money too.

That’s success!
