Transcript – What People THINK Success Is V What Success Really Is
Most people think that success is determined by the accumulation of things… The money, the house, the cars and the things… but that is not what makes someone successful.
If things made us happy, those who have the most would have the greatest happiness… and that simply isn’t the case.
Most people think success is about possessions… but it’s much more about peace than possessions. Most people think success is about fame … but it’s more about finding yourself than it is about fame.
People think success is money but it’s really much more than that. So much more than that.
People think success is a big house but it’s really big happiness. You see… what most people usually associate with success is not what will make them happy or fulfilled.
What everyone is chasing through these achievements and possessions is a feeling. They want to FEEL better than they do now, and they believe by achieving something, or becoming rich, or buying that expensive thing, they will be happier…But things don’t make us happy. Only we can do that.
Everything we need to feel successful is within us, because it is only a feeling away. A feeling of wholeness. A feeling of being complete. A feeling that we ARE good enough.
To be truly successful you need NOTHING but that feeling.
There’s no point having the possessions if you’re in pain. There’s no point having the money if you’re miserable.
What good is the money if you’re miserable?
Dada Vaswani once said: “Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.”
So the goal then, is not to achieve, although there’s nothing wrong with that. The goal is NOT to accumulate possessions although there is nothing wrong with that either.
The goal is to master your inner world. To master your emotions. To find your inner peace. To find your happiness.
To work on you and find the balance of life that works best for you. Go ahead and achieve. Set those goals and conquer them. But here’s a bigger challenge: Find inner peace.
Find the treasure within, the treasure of inner peace and happiness… that is the rarest gold on this earth.
Accumulating wealth is easy in comparison to cultivating a consistent inner peace and happiness… and, considering you can not be truly successful unless you are true happy, why not work on that first, as a priority? The money will come easier, when you are in a better space – so get in that better space first.
Wayne Dyer said:
“You aren’t your work, your accomplishments, your possessions, your home, your family… your anything. You’re a creation of your Source, dressed in a physical human body intended to experience and enjoy life on Earth.”
Master your inner world first – then your outer riches will fall into place. Master your inner emotions first, so you’re ready to deal with the success and achievements when they come.
Redefine what success really means to you. Don’t chase things – cultivate joy. Create a magical life from the inside first, you will feel like the richest person on planet earth.
As John Lennon said: “If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”
Demand peace and happiness for your life… and you will have it.
