The succeed step is about realizing your goals, objectives, dreams, sure.
That's great, but then you need a new goal, objective, dream to keep going, right?
We put "Succeed" at the end, but really, it is also the beginning. True Success (big S, as in "my life is a success") is about feeling great about where you are and where you are going.
That means success is more about habits of thought, than merely goal achievement, or how much abundance you have in a particular area of your life.
We all can appreciate and abundance of wealth, time, health, love, etc., but let's not confuse abundance with success. There are many who are wealthy in one or more of these areas, yet report not feeling successful at all.
Success involves enjoying the process of getting there as much, or more, than arriving. Success includes appreciation of past "failures" and "mistakes" as well as our wins. Success is more about attitude, than arriving. It's a plane that's climbing, nose up, and turning the headwind of adversity into extra lift. Success is about embodying a growth mindset—one that enables us to take the contrasts of life in stride, using them for our continuing expansion.
Achieving this kind of successful outlook may mean adjusting some habitual thoughts and beliefs, and the payoffs are well worth the examination and change!
As with the other steps, you might consider hiring a coach to help you with this all-important process. ©
We can all benefit by reclaiming authority that up until now, we’ve practiced giving away in order to gain the approval of others — or for this or that imagined reason.
It's true that we increase our chances of happiness and success by making more of our choices based on what inspires us; from the inside out; with more focus of attention and "presence" than we are normally accustomed to. There's real power in the knowing that our happiness and success are not about someone else's actions or solution, but about finding what works for us, and practicing that with focus and positive expectation.What do you want?
What are the thoughts you habitually think? What are the kinds of choices you make, and how do you make your choices? What you are willing to do to make your wants happen?
Imagine, align, focus, communicate, engage, succeed.
