About Your Success…
Could There Be MORE???
This is a blog about Your Success. It is essentially a book entitled “How to be Successful in Life – Your Keys to Success.” Come along on a journey on the road ‘OF‘ success. Notice I didn’t say the road TO success but rather the road OF success. That’s because, by taking a step, you are already ON that road. Success is not so much a destination as it is a journey. So, without further ado, let’s begin our journey.
Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.– Arthur Ashe
Where is the Road?
You may be surprised and/or somewhat disappointed to learn that you are already standing on the road of Success. The only thing that is keeping you from your destiny… is YOU. That’s because the road of Success is a well-worn road and one that is meant to be traveled. Success involves movement, and when you stop moving, you’ve stalled your Success.
There is kind of a funny (not “haha,” but “Oh my!”) thing about Success: When you reach the point of feeling successful, many people realize they need something more. They no longer feel successful – it’s an empty feeling. Imagine a humid, hot, burning day in the sun, and you grab a big frosty mug expecting icy-cold water… but it’s empty, kind of like that. There is something about the human condition and spirit that needs movement. It’s why we dance, walk, run, jump, leap, love. Something in us yearns for more. Just ask people who have the position, power, or prolific finances that you might dream of; they aren’t happy with it. Those things don’t make them FEEL Successful or satisfied. It only makes them LOOK successful.
The maintenance of Success requires movement because you are on a road and the purpose of a road is to take you somewhere.
When you stand on the road and look into the distance, you have no idea what you are getting yourself into or what it will look like in the end. Many times, we travel around and get so used to our surroundings that we can navigate them in our sleep. Have you ever traveled over a familiar road or path, been lost in thought, and suddenly realized you don’t remember how you got to where you are? Well, the road of Success is not like that; you can’t navigate it on autopilot. It’s new territory ahead and never familiar. It requires your careful attention to navigate (do I dare say) successfully.
So, the road of Success is right under your feet. To start Your Journey, all you need to do is take a step. I know this may be confusing because the road of Success is simply an analogy; I’m using an experience in the physical world to talk about a concept in our mind and heart.
When I say, “Take a step,” some people may respond, “How? What am I supposed to do?”
Well, that’s the purpose of this blog: to help you determine your next step. I can’t tell you what that means in your life. But, together, we can help each other discover what it means individually. It’s going to be different for each person. What works for me could be a disaster for you and vice versa. There are, however, some common keys and tips you can use to start and maintain your journey, kind of like having a map to get you to your destination.
By the way, to find the road of Success – just look down at your feet. If you’re reading this blog, you’re already standing on it.
