YOU determine what success is for you. It’s not based on any judgment other than your own. It’s not dependent upon materialistic measurements. And, for some, success is the journey, itself. Success may be something material, such as money or a new home. It could be something egotistical, as the power and notoriety that comes with the position of CEO. It could be emotional, as finding love and commitment.
Success may even be unselfish and altruistic, as seeing children in third world countries healthy and safe. Success has no particular name or identity. There is no one method to describe what success is, other than the definition above. It means something different to each individual. All successful people, however, have one thing in common — determination! To be success, you must first determine to be so.
Though not always a conscious decision, the seed that leads to action is to first determine.
Being successful is a two-part process — determination and belief! Both of which begin in the mind. Determination and belief are the starting points for success. They open you to new opportunities to do an exploit, and you only need a subconscious thought to plant the seed.
Rewrite Your Reality
To rewrite your reality, you must reinvent yourself. To do this, you need to change your thinking, your speech, and your actions/reactions. You cannot change the current life your mind created, with the same mind that created it. You must change the way you think. Change your mind,change your reality.
The past does not drive you forward, unless you allow it. Just because things have progressed a specific way up until now, doesn’t mean it must continue to do so. No one can write you off in life unless you do so by allowing the spirit of limitation upon yourself. Allowing a negative recurring event to control your future makes you a victim.
Cherish the good you remember from your past — the events, feelings and people. Confront and accept the bad, because nothing happens in our lives by accident. Regardless of how bad things may have been in your past, you wouldn’t be the person you are now without this past and the events it holds. You had to go through all that you did to be YOU.
You are not what you’ve done, what you’ve been, how others have taught you, or what has been done to you. Your past and all its hurts are no longer in this reality, unless you allow them to be here to continue to cause hurts, conflicts, and negative cyclical events. You cannot change your past, but you can change your response to it.
