Success is paramount for any business owner. While many of us chase the holy grail of success some, or most sadly will deviate from their journey at some stages. While success can actually mean many things for each individual, most people associate the word with becoming financially successful.
Perhaps we see it this way because we see money as a means to acquire anything we ever want. While money certainly does help to feel successful in some ways, it isn’t the only way to measure success at all. Far from it actually.
Attaining success could be:
- overcoming a long and hard illness
- mastering our fears
- following and realizing a long held dream
- mastering the concept of living in the now
- helping those less fortunate to overcome their hurdles
- living by the laws of the universe
- being truly happy
As you know, success is also in the heart of you. Regardless of whether others see us as being successful or not, what really matters is that you do with all your heart.
I am successful. I have been blessed with a soul that helps me to understand the many whys of my life while discovering new ones all the time. I consider myself to be on an exhilarating success journey and am excited about every corner I round, every new branch I discover and the people I meet along the way.
Most of my success has been made possible by my belief system and the way I am willing to learn every day. A recent soul reading with Akemi Gaines opened my eyes even more to the possibilities that are open to me in this lifetime.
Many of you are my friends who I deem to be my success journey buddies. Most of us strive for a better life, more freedom, more time and more happiness. We can all do this together by embracing each other in spirit and by sharing our strength.
As far as I’m concerned we all gain so much more by helping each other, rather than fighting. There truly is enough for each of us, all you have to do is grab the opportunities that present themselves each and every day.
Practice gratitude and soon enough you will see positive changes in the attitude of those around you. Anyway, enough of the success talk, I open the floor to all of you and what you have to say about success.

I also wanted to let you know, although some of these links are not success related, they still are successful in their own ways, plus they do deserve a link too since many of you are regular readers.
Also, these are only links from the comments since the beginning of this month. I think to do a link post like Cath’s, I would take me about 1 month alone. LOL. God knows how many hours she slaved away to post hers. It took me about 2.5 hours. Phew….
So, this is a simple thank you for staying with me while I’ve hardly had time to visit any of your blogs. If it is a little consolation though, I am subscribed to pretty much all of you, except the newer guys which of course I have to do now.
