WHEN DOES SUCCESS COME?
WHEN WE ARE CONTENTED/HAPPY
Success comes when we are contented/satisfied and happy with ourselves.This is the crux of every happy and successful person. Success, be it in the form of material or immaterial pursuit comes when we are contented/happy with ourselves. This happiness/contentment /satisfaction from within takes us to greater heights of success, we have never imagined. Success and happiness is directly related with our minds. Let me point out a few things that keep us away from being happy and achieving success.
Firstly, we hear this voice in our head which negates everything good that has or will come in our way. We do not look at the bright side of things or appreciate ourselves rather we pay more importance to the voice in our head which tells us that we are not good enough. And if we are getting this success, it’s due to so and so reason. So guys put an end to the voices in your head and start believing in yourself. It is you and you alone who can challenge the voice and get the success you have long waited for.
Secondly, we have put on a mask in order to hide our true selves from people. You do not have to conceal yourself to get people’s approval or attention. You in yourself are a whole being. You just have to focus on yourself and no one else. If you are happy with yourself, people who love and care about you would be happy in your happiness. Don’t be guilty for that. Always remember that.
Thirdly, when you encounter success, do not associate with past feelings or experiences of rejection. Accept it, say it and own it. It is your success and you rightly deserve it. Stop undermining your abilities. We are all unique individuals in this world having our own set of skills. There is simply no comparison between two individuals.
Fourthly, don’t become a victim of self pity. It would ruin your life and make you a sorry figure in the long run. People will stop looking at what you were as a person rather they too will take you as a sorry figure, a thing needed to be pitied upon. May be being unsuccessful in life won’t kill you but yes pity would.
Fifthly, be the best version of yourself. An ideal, that everybody looks up to not someone people and family start detesting. The happier we are within, the more successful we are. Success cannot be counted in numbers. It is an immeasurable quantity which needs to be felt, appreciated and shared.
Lastly, you should always remember that you are the designer of your own fate. If you are happy within, you are at the top of the world with every success at your feet but if you feel ugly and not wanted inside not even a heap of gold can make you successful in life. Shed off your skin of weakness and rejection and wear your clothes of glitter to shine and be seen in the world.
In the end, I would like to conclude that your relationship with yourself defines your relationships with the people around you. You need to take a step forward and forgive yourself for all those times when you faced rejection and disappointment in things you so desired to have. Whether, it was a simple approval from parents, siblings, spouse, and children. Or whether it was a job or mere appreciation.
Similarly, love yourself and others unconditionally. Don’t expect anything in return. This will give you a lot of satisfaction and self appraisal. Love, success and happiness will come back to you in the form of a reward and you in reality will find inner peace. This peace will establish your level of happiness leading you to success.
