When we look for success via external achievements, we are missing the point of success. Success isn’t a collage of achievements, or an overflowing bank account, success, instead, is a way of feeling. Success is about telling yourself, in your own mind, that you’re enough, you’re good, you’re worthy, success is about re-writing your internal dialogue. Success feels like fulfilment, contentment, like your heart is overflowing with love for life, love for yourself, love for others. (Things That Inspire Us To Be Successful)
I sometimes imagine what the world would be like if everyone ‘downed their tools’ and took some time to retreat to their internal world. For it is only through repeated, dedicated commitment to changing our internal narrative that we can really feel successful. I wonder what would happen to the world if everyone developed an internal belief that by merely existing, by being a human-being, they were already a success.
